Have you ever queque up to find find killer deals at midnight Thanksgiving Day?

But I suspect that it's mostly marketing hype. Retail stores often give big discounts on the items that don't sell very well.

Have you ever fallen for the trick? {:soso_e143:}

I think a lot of people do this for the excitement that comes with getting a bargain.  However, when you look at it rationally, it's really not worth the time waiting in line to save what is actually just a little bit of money.

Yes, in years past, I have stood in the lines to buy really inexpensive things! But a few years ago the sales didn’t start until 6am on Friday. Now they have started some of the sales on Thursday evening.

As to the savings, here are some examples:

Best Buy has a 15.6” Lenovo laptop for $187, but it has an AMD processor and only 2G RAM

Best Buy also has an HP Pavilion 17.3” Laptop with 4G RAM for $399 which has a 4th Generation Intel processor and 750G hard drive.

40” Toshiba 1080p HDTV with 2HDMI inputs, PC video input and USB port….$179

12mp Nikon Coolpix s9050 with 15x optical zoom for $129

A wise shopper could save 50% on their Christmas gifts!
I guess it just depends what you call “just a little bit of money”.
