Matt, our Boxing Day is basically the same as Black Friday, except the Americans have timed it better, as it falls BEFORE XMAS (after Thanksgiving) whereas ours, falls after we're all prized out from Christmas.

Boxing Day for us is SO useless.

For Canucks:
Wake up VERY early, get at the store by 4am, wait for an hour, go in with 499 other people, mob mob mob to get the 200 dollar laptop, then flee, knocking over other people in your way to get to the next "deal"

The deals where I work are pretty good. Best two deals are a free sirius receiver with purchase of a $50 programming card, and a 30 GB Zune with a case for $99.

im not allowed to work more than 8.5 hours [scheduled] any day of the week realistically, i will be working from 4am to around 5pm, by "accident".

as for us, the line starts forming a little before 3am; the customers get there before we do. and then they try to get mad at us for not letting them in before we open. last year we had two people actually try to get in with the associates. just tried to muscle their way in. security had to be called up to help out.

FYI: you can get the same deals online with free shipping, without going to the store starting midnight on thanksgiving. and if theres a problem with it when you get it, you can return it to the store.

199.99 (I believe 149.99 at best buy, but we price match ) (OH also, it does NOT broadcast in 1080p!!!)

Not all Circuit Cities do this, but we let people in starting at around 4am, but we won't check out until 5am
