Cool, I see a lot of stuff on there to help me fill out the holes in the library for my recently acquired PS3. Interestingly, the lightning deals seem to often be only $2 or so less than the “all day” deals, which doesn’t exactly make it worth gluing yourself to your computer for.
If it’s like the lightning deals last year, it’ll only last a few seconds. It can last an hour if supplies last, but with these deals, everyone is hitting refresh, and if you can get the offer, you go for it, otherwise, it refreshes for you and it’s already sold out. (The lightning deal is quantity limited).
I’m not sure what the deal is with Best Buy. They claim that a lot of the Black Friday deals are available online, and that the sale starts at midnight, but then when you go to check the website the Black Friday price is already posted for the items and they’re listed as sold out (Microsoft 3-month Live Gold for $8 for example). I don’t knwo if this means they went live ont he web already and are gone, or if it means they are not posting “inventory” to those items until midnight when the sale is supposed to start.
The Best Buy holiday deals were scheduled to go live on Thanksgiving morning, so most of the online inventory was gone just after they hit. It helps the purchasing systems to have the online and in-store rushes on different days.
