I don't think the BF sale prices are up yet. I'm assuming it will start Friday and last through Monday.

Something is funky with their site. Something will be on sale when you search it and then go back to original price once it's been added to your cart...

Yep, and on top of that two of the items I wanted stopped being on sale today. The advice to wait til Friday was terrible. And the other 6 items I wanted didn't even change, no further discount. Sale price is the same as pre-black Friday.

Sometimes our back end doesn't upload at the same time as the website - that would mean the sale price shows up on the product page, but isn't yet reflected in the cart.

If you can post any SKU# of items that are not showing up correctly in cart I can try to get that rectified faster for you!

Opposite problem I think, the item was taken off sale, so the original price was reflected in the cart but not yet on the product page.

If you are referring to the 3hr deals, they should be up in an hour or so!

If that is the case, clearing your cache / cookies should solve that issue.

Nobody advised you to wait. If you saw a good price on something you should have bought it.

If you're referring to what I said about the prices didn't appear to be BF prices to me could be because the items I was looking at weren't priced that great, just everyday sale price I can get any day of the week anytime of the year. You may have been looking at items that were some good BF prices. It's up to each person to research what they're buying to determine whether it's a good price or not. It's also a good idea to check the site periodically to know when the sale starts.

Actually there was advisement to wait.

This is the "advice" I was referring to. I wasn't referring to anything YOU said. And the big als forum member, if you read below, states that most of the sales were not yet up, so at what point do you know it's a "good price"? They stated that most sales were not up yet but failed to mention that several sales would also end on BF. And actually I did check the site, at least twice a day in fact. Thanks.
