I can more than afford a new TV but I have to consider my priorities first and in this day and age, I rather exercise, wash car or do some outdoor recreation than to watch someone act and be paid millions due to sheepish patronage. Recently I had a guest over who made a comment mentioning, look at that out-dated thing you have. My response to that was, I have property but you rent. I have a new car and you drive a sheit box that by the mechanic more than it is in your hands. What say you? He hasn't been back since then and coming to think about it, we haven't messaged in a while too lol.

Don’t think there will be a crowd as they had a week or more of Black Friday sale starting last week.

Years ago Newegg wasn't accepting international credit cards. Not sure what the policy is now

PriceSmart is moving smooth as ever . Incidentally went to buy regular stuff there and people were moving with TVs like bread but no beat up because there is even an extra corridor for TVs so the supply is quite adequate and spread out in time

I never bought directly from Newegg site because of how tuners say the same thing about international credit card. But I had no problem using the Newegg merchant on eBay.

Same for AntOnline - never used their own site but had no problems on their eBay one.

Because most of the deals getting bought out by scalper (bots) and then reappearing at 3-5x the original undiscounted price. Saw it happen with Samsung Odyssey G9 when they had a sale a few days before Black Friday/Monday.

https://nypost.com/2020/12/08/scalper-bots-are-snatching-playstations-xboxes-from-shoppers/

So-called “scalper bot” software has hoovered up many of the new gaming consoles released this fall, creating shortages that shut out eager consumers looking to score a new Sony PlayStation 5 or the latest Xbox model.

The bots are snatching up just about every hot product online retailers sell — including Lysol spray, wipes and toilet paper, as well as new sneakers — and turning around to resell them at much higher prices on Amazon Marketplace and eBay, according to a Reuters report.

Demand for the new gaming consoles in particular drove record traffic on Walmart.com, a spokesperson for the retail giant said.

Walmart said it blocked more than 20 million bot attempts within the first 30 minutes of the PS5 sales event on Nov. 25, according to the report.

Retailers including Nike, a major target of resellers, have invested heavily in bot-blocking software that allows them to cancel orders that they later determine were originated by a bot, but they can’t stop all the transactions and the practice is not illegal, experts say.

Although US law prohibits ticket scalping under the federal Better Online Ticket Sales (BOTS) Act of 2016, no such protections exist for retailers.

There are even subscription services that teach people how to use bots and alert them when hot items like the game consoles are released. One such service, UK-based CrepChiefNotify, claims its customers have purchased 6,000 new PS5 and Xbox consoles, according to the report.

The company said it has doubled its membership to 4,000 since the start of the pandemic, when many of its members lost their jobs. It says its clients have generated a profit of about 400 British pounds ($534.40) on average per game console when reselling them.


“These are businesses … people pay their mortgages doing this,” said Edward Roberts at cybersecurity firm Imperva. “They have a goal and it’s financially motivated, so they’re not going to go away.”

I read through some of the comments on their Facebook page, with people that ordered items online weeks ago and have yet to receive them..is that in-store as well?

Courts running a massive racket with online orders. Instantly charging your card and then sending you a email saying the item out of stock and you hadda fight up.like 6 months to get a refund. Been going on since last year
