Black Friday is still a week away, but one woman in Tampa is already camping out in preparation for the massive shopping event. Forget spending time with your family on Thanksgiving, or even going in to work next week — this is the season for shopping, Lovelies!
Christine Orta’s shopping destination of choice is Best Buy, the electronics mecca. She has set up a tent outside of the store along with her friends and three other families, where they’ll be sharing supplies over the next seven days. When asked the obvious question, why?, the devoted bargain hunter responded,
You can’t beat some of the deals they have on plasmas, flat screens and laptops. We’re all students; you’ve got to pinch a penny; it’s affordable right now.
So what are these deals she is referring to? According to TheBlackFriday.com, Best Buy will be selling 24-inch HDTVs for $79.99, Samsung laptops for $299.99 and Toshiba Blue-ray players for $39.99. Pretty good prices, but are they worth giving up a week of your life for? [via Racked and Tampa Bay Online]
Have you Lovelies ever shopped on Black Friday? What was the craziest experience you had? And am I the only one wondering why this student is buying flat screen TVs if she’s trying to pinch pennies?
