Default so called black friday sales

Look at the fine print that appears next to an advertised "doorbuster deal" at the bottom of the page in this year's circulars.
It will either say
Quote:
"While supplies last," "Minimum 2 per store," "No rainchecks" or "All items are available in limited quantities."
Quote:
Sears has not officially revealed its Black Friday sales. However, the company confirmed to CNNMoney.com that two of its post-Thanksgiving deals include a Samsung 40-inch 1080p LCD HDTV for $599.99, "Only while quantities last, minimum three per store, no rainchecks."
Quote:
Kenmore 3.5-cubic-foot high-efficiency washer and 5.8-cubic foot dryer pair for $579.98, "Limit four per store, no rainchecks."
Quote:
What do you mean this HDTV is a "derivative?" Some of the holiday electronics with those low sale prices are derivatives, models that have a few less features than a standard model in that product line. "The image contrast ratio might be 20,000 in a derivative model versus 30,000 in a standard model,"
Quote:
Online deals that never get shipped: Case in point: Sears. Last year, one of Sears' hottest Black Friday doorbuster deal was on a Kenmore washer-dryer pair for $600.
Even though the retailer advertised that deal to be in "limited quantities," the company decided to honor every customer order made on that deal last Black Friday.
Big mistake. The manufacturer could not ramp up production fast enough. Some customers waited months before their order was shipped. Others were sold a substitute model, that was "comparable or even better" for the same deal price


Quote:
About those rainchecks: Finally, if a retailer does offer you a raincheck on a deal, it could still turn out to be an empty promise.
"A raincheck doesn't guarantee that you will eventually get that elusive Black Friday deal," he said. "Consumers can go weeks waiting and hoping, and the retailer may never get more of the product shipped to its stores."
CROOKS!!!!

I'll be doing my shopping online, which will be only buying a GPS off newegg.

I might go to Lowes to get some stuff if they're cheap.

nothing wrong with consumers helping keep other consumers informed. it was online so i copied some of the article. we all already knew that most sale items are still questionable but this stuff is as bad if not worse than a shady used car lot

Only wording that confuses me is the "Minimum" per store part. I mean to play Monopoly, you need a minimum of 2 players, but you can have more. So it should be "Maximum" per store

if i remember right wasnt there people that died in a walmart last year in a rush at chrsitmas or black friday during one of these sales. all because of limited items.
exactly why they need to either have enough on hand or if they sell an item make sure the people get it asap. not months and months later.
