I'll go first...
I got up at 330am, got to Sears at 430 and there wasn't a soul outside the door I had walked up to. I thought how cool is this. Sitting there for 10 minutes a few other people started to show up and then a store security guard came over and informed up that the door we were at would not be opened until 530 am and that there would only be one door that would be opened at 5am and it was on the other side of the store. So we hustled over and of course there was a line but it wasn't too bad, I ended up being about the 40th person in line.
At 455am they opened up (5 min early - woot) and I made a bee line to the dvd players to get the Sony Blu Ray player they had on door buster sale for $179 - I ended up being the 3rd person in line for them. And it turns out they only had ONE, yes just ONE in stock! WTF!!! How incompetent is that? To only think that one person might want a $400 dvd player for $179? Talk about calling shenanigans!!
At least the other stores like Best Buy advertised the minimums they would have (usually ranged from 10 - 20). On Thanksgiving morning I went to two different Kmarts for the same player that was on sale for the same price - naturally they were out too, but at least both the Kmart stores issued me a raincheck so that when they do get them back in stock I can still get the sale price! Way to go Kmart! Who would have thought they would have better service than Sears? And now I have two rainchecks!
Thankfully the dvd player wasn't the only reason why I picked Sears for the doorbuster shopping - I was able to get over $500 in jewelry for just $150! And the girl that served me was wonderful, she fought so hard to get the $10 off coupon that was in the circular applied, sadly the manager said no but I was so impressed with how hard the sales girl fought. Instead she ended up finding a 20% off deal that could be applied which saved me even more than the coupon! So that kinda made up for the dvd player.
