Wal-Mart Black Friday Super Deals

Some of what Wal-Mart will be offering has leaked out to the masses and the deals seem to be great, if the rumors are true. Over at CNN/Money they are claiming that Wally-World will be offering the following deals:

According to the circular, Wal-Mart’s so-called doorbuster deals offered between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. ET will include a 50-inch Samsung plasma HDTV ($798), Magnavox Blu-ray player ($128), Xbox 360 ($199) sold with free Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock game and wireless guitar, HP Pavilion desktop computer ($398) and a UniFlame gas grill ($175).

In addition, Wal-Mart’s Black Friday ad shows a GE microwave for $25, children’s clothing priced between $4 and $8 and a variety of toys, including a Hannah Montana doll for $10 or less.

Wal-Mart spokeswoman Melissa O’Brien declined to address the leaks from the Black Friday sales circular, saying only that “we plan to share the facts directly with customers on Monday, Nov. 24th.”

Well Melissa that’s no way to get the public excited by playing the wait game. :-)

The Samsung 50″ Plasma most likely will be a 720p model but still is a great price. I also received a correction in my assumption that the extended warranty offered by Wal-Mart required you return the product to the store. I received this from reader Werewolf:

Bit of a correction:
I work for a Wal-Mart in electronics.

Wal-Mart’s extended warranty IS in-home *if* the original warranty is as well.

From Wal-Mart.com:
“Qualified products, mirroring the manufacturer’s warranty, receive convenient in-home or on-site service.”.

just fyi.

I was told by a Wal-Mart employee via a warranty brochure that there was no in-home repairs. Obviously he was wrong. :-(

Comments welcome.

    The Walmart extended warranty… It covers Heat Dust Humity Normal wear and tare and Power surge. It starts After the normal warranty has ended (one year after purchase. BUT the power surge starts from the day you purchase and last all 3 years. It is an in home warranty , as in a autherized repair man will come to your home. Most likly he will have to then take it to a shop. but you pay nothing for this, The warranty is thr a company called Repair Now. I Work also for WallyWorld in the electronics department, and also have had to use this warranty. they could not fix my problem, but refunded my total purchase price plus the warranty. I had a check within 4 days from the time the Tech was at the house.

    One on one time with students is an excellent way to improve the students education. By allowing questions to be asked in private which would otherwise embarrass the student, it allows those questions to be answered.
    The next logical step to this law is to disallow any and all involvement between a student and teacher in private at all. Of course, this would lead to disallowing any and all involvement between any school official and a child without a larger group and, by necessity, would disallow the involvement of any adult and any child in general.
    Of course, then there’s the possibility of an adult/child orgy which would follow the letter of the law so I guess the courts would have to rule out involvement between adults and children at all.

    Alright, here’s the plan. From now on, children will learn exclusively from the internet but only the sections not involving adults at all. Children are only allowed to learn from other children and socialize with other children.

    I can’t believe there are so many bad apples in the state of Missouri’s teacher basket to justify such reaction. Instead of barring student and teacher interaction, which is intended to educate, the state government should foster family involvement in kids’ education and develop students’ awareness of what constitutes proper student-teacher relationship. Preventing social media contact seems like a simplistic bias, a tragic misunderstanding of what education means.
