Black Friday 2021



Indeed.

Will update as new information surfaces. *nods*

Lets begin...

- - -

Wal-Mart

Like with last year, "Black Friday" will not be a single day for the store, but spread out - different days, different sales. Unlike before, those who are members of "Walmart+" will have early access. Never heard of it gathering the list. For them it starts on November 10th at 3 PM to 6 PM (Eastern time), members only.

Deal go live for everybody else in stores on the 12th at 5 AM.

Should be noted, a first for them...

Due to circumstances beyond our control, select items may not be available in all stores
Can this be about the supply chain getting throttled?

There will aways be sales, but they won't be as deep and as plentiful.
- Aaron Cheris from Bain & Company

Where I live there are a huge stacks/pile of truck cargos (store logo) that can be seen from the freeway, a ton of them. Can only guess they're for the stores in the area. Off the top of my head, four of them. Enough for them all? Don't know.

Would like to find "Resident Alien" S1, "The Nevers" S1 P1, "American Gods" seasons, "Penny Dreadful City Of Angels" S1 and others on DVD.

Re: Black Friday 2021

The UHD offerings appear to be limited. The best UHD deal I've seen offered this Black Friday will be Zack Snyder's Justice League UHD for $9.96.

A few more will be priced at $12.96.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Thanks. I was just trying to see if it was worth it for me to go to Walmart as I am only interested in getting Blu-ray versions of the movies.
Just been buying Blu-rays instead of DVDs because of the better picture quality.

Re: Black Friday 2021

It's a hunt, that's pretty much a constant.

My plan is to go to two stores (Wal-Marts) and see what I can find off my list.

The rest will be sought from online from whoever has the better deal (with shipping).

Re: Black Friday 2021

The prices stop at thirteen - and those are for Disney titles which are usually kept high.

The prices are petty much the same as other years; I'm a veteran of BF sales - going since 2007. What IS different is the selection of titles, made more worse with the supply breakdown.

I'm pretty sure there will be some titles that are two bucks or so. Unlisted releases, but that will be older stock - trying to get rid of.

VCI is having a sale. Other than the Karloff's & the Pickford's not a lot. I bought a 4 Star Playhouse collection at $7.50 which came to almost $13 with tax & shipping. Not that great of a deal, but I collect the series, & I only had one of the episodes.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Big Lots!

This is crap on a cracker. Their sale is for Thanksgiving day only; November 25th - 7am to 9pm.

The problem is no movies/TV shows are shown. No DVDs nor BDs. In fact most of their offers are discounts. As in, take 50% off, 30% off and 20% off. Some have prices, but not solid... starting from.

Now I'm sure there will be some media on sale, but I can't say to what degree. It's like they're not sure what merchandise they will actually have in stock so their ad reflects that influx situation.

There are some 'things'.

1) Friday 26th only - 6am to 12pm - take an extra 15% off everything for Rewards Members.

2) Thursday 25th only - first come, first served - free mini-lights for Christmas for Rewards Members in store.

That's it.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Been looking nearly everyday. Hasn't appeared yet, no BF ads for Best Buy or Target yet.

Can anyone confirm rhe day? Thanks.
Sites are showing the 2020 ads for reference. You could be seeing that.

By the way, they're mistakenly showing next week's Target ad as if it's a Black Friday preview. It's not, it's next week's ad.

So far we are... waiting.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Can only guess cause pandemic and shipments are lagging cause ports are backlogged that they have no news to give incase the stock does not arrive in time for sale any. been seeing news of ships waiting in sea to come in and remove any stuff that was ordered who knows how far back and it just taking a long time to get in and unload the containers any. so may not get ads to show till closer to turkey day i guessing. so it a whole wait and see type deal any.

That means no real deals, or really shitty deals on old, crusty stock that was bad two years ago when it was current. Or, merely "take 5% off storewide! Limited to in-stock items only" coupon crap.

Re: Black Friday 2021

My thoughts echo Cabler30's comments.

I get the feeling that they don't know what they will get or how much of it. So they're waiting for some answer = no ad.

I know that Wal-Mart has been squirreling supplies for BF since May. One of my friends does machinery repairs - he's been seeing piles of their cargo haul, parked - stacked next to each other for months all over the place. Looks like they were ahead of the game.

The rest are suffering, such as Big Lots. I'm pretty sure this will be the worst Black Friday in decades. Later this morning I'm going to Wal-Mart for various DVDs (mine and Christmas gifts). I didn't make my list until a few hours ago. I typically have a list done a week in advance, adding stuff the closer the date comes. Not this year.

This could very well be the Cyber Monday tipping point. But can backfire on them. Late last month I got an email from Bank Of America saying that bills needs to be paid early if done by mail. They were contacted by the Postal Service saying there will be delays this year since they have less staff and more mail (plus packages). All those who will buy from places like Amazon will have a longer wait to receive them.

Good luck to all those going out later today for their media wishes. I know I need it. Will be hitting two stores.

Pulled it out...

The United States Postal Service began changing first-class mail delivery time frames in October. This change may result in mailed statements, new or replacement cards and payments you mail taking longer to arrive.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Three Wal-Marts; I started at 6:30am.

Yeah, this was damn poor. I got lucky with the first store. The second was tiny. The third was just above that. The rack on wheels - that was their selection. Granted there was a tiny display for Disney titles. I hope you had better luck, those who shopped.

My loot...



The ones without stickers were on regular sale. That Lego Batman is the two disc version for five bucks.

For those are curious - the link.

Didn't want much from Walmart's Black Friday sales this year but I managed to picked up a few DVDs I was after (from the shippers).

Eddie Murphy: 14-Movie Collection ($9.96)
The Walking Dead: The Complete Tenth Season ($7.96)

Re: Black Friday 2021

Target

Yup. Just as predicted - this WILL BE the worst BF in decades. This year the store will be covering a week, starting on November 21st - 27th; closed on Thanksgiving (25th).

Their Black Friday sale on media is "Buy 2, Get 1 Free: Movies, Books & Music" (must be on the same receipt).

That's it.

No prices listed in this abysmal offering (DVDs and BDs). I don't even think I'll even try. What little money I have - might as well do Cyber Monday because this is BS. So glad I did my shopping at Wal-Mart earlier, got a good chuck of the stuff on my list and then some.

Re: Black Friday 2021

Cabler30 it has less to to with the pandemic as it does with trucks.

No.

One of the main avenues for merchants is the Port Of Los Angeles. Because of our insane governor; the only transport trucks, big rigs allowed are hybrid vehicles - to enter and leave California. Why not just mod the existing trucks?

They made it clear this is just the start - they're pushing for 100% electric trucks or no big rigs can operate in the state. So why even mod their fleet? It will become null and even more money has to be spent to make it up to CA code. This is why so little merchandise is arriving at stores and prices going up. Supplies are getting harder to come by.

The next level of insanity - they want all the cargo ships parked off the coast (waiting for available trucks to unload) to LEAVE. If they don't have hybrid vehicles on the ready, don't bother coming to California. Not joking. God wish I was joking.

This is why we have a supply shortages and rising inflation. There are not enough hybrid vehicles to unload onto. Things will only get worse. They think they're doing us all a favor by going Green, but solar and wind are not long term viable; windless days and cloudy weather will give us black outs for days and day. Dark days are coming for us in CA...

And the rest of the nation because of their irrational pursuits, child-like daydreams. This is why Black Friday sucks, not because of the pandemic. I've seen so many people not wearing their mask proper - they're going through the motions. Under their jaw or under their noses. What's the point? The answer is politicians wanting to be edgy.
