What time should one arrive at Walmart for Black Friday sales. They start selling at 5am. I was thinking about maybe getting there for 3am. Is that too early? Any suggestions?

Thanks

I rarely do black friday sales. I don't get paid to take any day off from work being sick. $736 of gross income in 8 hours down the drain. And if I get very sick, it's several thousands of dollars. Just to save maybe $100 off a HDTV flat screen. No thanks! I'm much better off paying full price than to be exposed to airborne illnesses by shoppers or travelers on holidays.

That's quite the hourly rate you get!

I am skipping the Black Friday outing too. You can get deals on a lot of websites. Why get up early and brave the crowds if you don't have to ?

I'll trade it for the salary of a 20 year old if I could have the youth again!

I would not recommend going to Walmart. I went there once out of curiosity and had a very unpleasant experience.

I don't "do" Black Friday shopping but just saw on local news that 24 hour WalMarts are allowing customers inside to await the start of the sales and are using crowd control this year with corded off areas and other things.
Necessary since people have been trampled on in the past.
Who does that?
If they were giving away free money tomorrow I wouldn't go.
