If time is money these peoples time is obviously not worth very much.

How much are they going to spend on food over the next few days? or are they cooking on the sidewalk?



Snip; Itzaida Díaz plans to spend more than $1,500 at Best Buy on Black Friday, and she's willing to camp out in front of the store for nearly a week to make sure she gets the best deals.

"We're really doing it for my son who landed second in line last year. He has a very competitive spirit," said Díaz of east Orange County, who set up two tents outside the East Colonial Drive electronics retailer Saturday night. "He wants a Toshiba 40-inch flat-screen TV, and we're also getting tablets, Sony PlayStations, Blu-ray players and other things."

Since Díaz and her family are first in line, they'll receive tickets to Best Buy's limited-quantity doorbuster deals when the store opens Thursday at midnight.

"I know this is crazy, but we're actually spending quality time together, and we can save up to $200 at the same time," said Diaz, who is taking off time from work as an accountant.

This is what I have always wondered, if they valued their time at x amount per hour, maybe they'd see that they are wasting SO MUCH OF IT doing stupid stuff like this. I like getting a bargain, of course, but not over something like this...in addition, they're wasting not only their time but what about the fact that they'll be missing over (what used to be?) a very important holiday WITH FAMILY.

So let’s see a week off of work in the cold, burning fuel in a generator & having Thanksgiving on the concrete in a parking lot and they will save and I quote “up to 200 dollars”

I am not seeing the savings and just wait for the rugs rats to respond, I did want that mom return it!

If my wife did this I would not even accept the gift, rather have the time back and order the item on line for the extra 100 bucks.

Yep! Actually, if that were me, and it was my husband waiting in line...he'd be hearing about it a lot EARLIER than when I received the gift, more like WHILE he was waiting in line about an hour in cool2 Just seems like such a waste of time, especially around the holidays in particular when it's meant to be spent with family.
