What's the point? head out and basically make you wanna punch someone out because of the lines, assholes in parking, etc?

Just order it online and save yourself the gas money - it's only $5 to ship. I ordered the Wii Guitar Hero bundle with 2 guitars and the game for $59. $6.99 to ship...

just got back, went out this morning to Futureshop, there was a massive line, but only waited 15 minutes & I was in, spent another 15 minutes inside & walked out with $500 lighter in my wallet, if you go in for the doorcrashers it's worth it, that's stuff you can't order online.

"boxing day" sales are going to last well into the new year.

Again - all those deals were online - I'm not going to go out for something that costs me $5-$7 more to avoid aggrevation...

There were also many web only DSLR's available until yesterday. You may have missed out on those...

It's jackasses in parking lots, lineups to get in, arriving stupidly early to try and get something they have only 10 of in the store - the list goes on.

I hopped online at 8PM Dec 24th when they opened the online boxing day deals and processed the only thing I wanted in seconds.

You got lucky with your "pleasant" experience. I dare you to walk in to any shopping place right now at this time and tell me if it's pleasant. Maybe at 5 or 6 AM when all the deal hoppers are out there, it might be less hectic. Right now - I guarantee it's crazy. My wife's gone out - we'll see what she says when she gets back.

And you didn't get what you went for - you said you wanted a DSLR which was sold out.

^I agree 100%. Most of them wanna screw around and buy nothing. If you know what you want, you get it. Drive in the parking lot and chance of getting hit is too much of a bs already. That will end up being 50/50 fault If you get hit. No way. Order online!
