Since Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum is getting ready to play in the Russell Athletic Bowl, and gets some nice gifts for doing so, which included a $500 Best Buy gift card… instead of treating himself, he decided to give his monies to some kiddies.
However, Exum did buy himself a pair of $30 headphones, but then gave the remaining balance to three boys, so that they could indulge a mini shopping spree.
He tweeted about his experience:

It's National Marriage Equality Day!
In an effort to show support for businesses that are LGBT-friendly (and proud of it), Equally Wed magazine is encouraging same-sex marriage supporters to patronize these establishments.
While Chick-fil-A owners are adamant about traditional marriage, companies like Starbucks, Best Buy, and Nike openly believe in and support equality. Organizers of the event originally wanted to specifically flood Starbucks in a similar fashion that people did on Mike Huckabee's "Appreciation Day," but it turns out that there was already a Starbucks Appreciation Day.
Instead, the online LGBT marriage magazine explained:

While the overall sales of TVs will go down, the screen size will still go up!
The Super Bowl is just around the corner and typically, retailers have great deals for party hosters who want to watch the big game.
This year, not so much.
More consumers took advantage of riDICK deals on Black Friday so retailers have less TVs in stock. Less TVs equals fewer deals.
However, if you're looking to go BIG this Sunday, some deals are still lurking for you.
Sharp's 80 inch TV, normally $5500, is available on Amazon for only $4100. Best Buy has $700 price cuts on Sharp's 60 and 60 inchers while selling the 80 inch version for $5000.
Other deals include Sony Bravias and LG TVs with $500 rebates and 92-inch 3D projector from Mitsubishi going $4000 with a whopping $2000 Super Sunday promotion.
Now, who's ready for a GIANT TV for the big game?!

These people never cease to amaze us.
A Florida woman has already pitched a tent outside of a Tampa Best Buy, making her the first person to line up for Black Friday.
Christine Orta's been camped out since the 16th because "you can't beat some of the deals they have on plasmas, flat screens and laptops." She adds: "We're all students; you've got to pinch a penny; it's affordable right now."
Guess she hasn't heard about that little thing called Cyber Monday.

Guess we probably won't be seeing any more epic 99 cent sales any time soon…
Billboard has announced that beginning the week of Nov. 21, albums selling for less than $3.49 within the first four weeks of release will NOT count on charts.
Also, individual tracks that sell for less than $0.39 won't count on charts either!
Here's Billboard editor Bill Werde on WHY these specific prices were chosen:

Geez! We know times are tight, but come on!!
The fuzz was called in to check out Katt Williams and his posse after a Best Buy employee suspected theft.
Katt was hangin' out with one of his infamous female companions and some other guys when the cops arrived.
After a short interrogation, Katt wasn't arrested but one of his friends was cited for a minor misdemeanor.
We don't really know what's going on with Katt and his crowd, but after the tractor incident (when three of his ladies attacked a tractor driver with rocks — yeah, they're pretty crazy), we're pretty sure something isn't right there!
