Gotta start up my list! haha just saw the Best Buy ad got leaked. They got a MacBook Pro and iMac but for retail price so no deal there but you get a free $125 gift card when you buy it so I guess you could call it $125 off? And some blu-rays for $7.99 seem like a good deal.

See anything that is really worth camping out for?

I don't know if both sites have all the items or not.

Seems like alot of the stores are using free gift card to drive customers to their stores. Whether it lives up to the hype, we will see

I'll bet my Dad will want another printer, or another computer (or my Mom will want a new computer).

Here's the "list" I'm assuming my parents have created for themselves:


Mac (of some type)




MacBook Air 11.6"


New desktop computer…something to replace her 2003 HP.

 iPad mini 1st gen - iOS 8.1.2
 iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 8.1.2
 Mac mini Server M10 - OS X 10.10.1
 MacBook Uni L09 - OS X 10.10.1

It's actually because Apple has strict vendor agreements, so Best Buy or any other Authorized Reseller can't sell below the price that Apple sets. So to make it attractive, stores give gift cards to help "take money off."
