Best...Thanksgiving...Ever.


Why do I love Thanksgiving? Well, besides the food, the football, the family, and the inevitable turkey coma I will slip into later this afternoon, it's the sales.

I have had pretty good luck in the past getting decent deals. Nothing huge, but the typical free stack of cds or a big discount on a present for someone else. Never did I get a great deal for myself though. Until today.

The fine folks at Amazon were running a deal today at 1 pm to get a Xbox 360 core system for $100 instead of the typical $300. They only have 1,000 at this price, so I didn't really think I had a chance.

But like a glutton for punishment, I clicked away at the refresh button in hopes of winning the lottery. At about 12:57, the Amazon site locked up and I knew it was over.

But wait...what is this? I got through! I couldn't believe it. Sure, I still have to pay $100, but it's a great deal. And best of all, it makes the decision of PS3 or Xbox 360 really easy.

Time to go update my Amazon Christmas list...

Dude that is so sweet. I was going to try to get one two, but I was nowhere near a computer at 1:00.

I can't believe you crossed over to the dark side. It's like I don't even know you anymore.

Wow, $100 for Xbox 360? Nice!

All my gaming is on PC, though, so I'm not sure I'd even spend $100 for it. I just wouldn't use it enough.
