Despite the cold weather, some people are already starting to camp out for those Black Friday deals.

It's two days before Best Buy opens its doors on Thanksgiving Day, but there already three people camped out in front of the store. They said the cold weather won't keep them away from those hot deals.

"You've got the PS3, the flat screen ... so it's more enjoyable," said Chase Price.

Price has everything he needs in a tent outside of the Best Buy on 71st (Street?) in south Tulsa.

"With all the things I'm going to get I'll save $2,500," he said.

Price is the first in line for the Black Friday sale and he's been there since Sunday.

"I have two heaters so I'll be plenty warm. And I have a fan, just in case it gets hot," he said.

He even has a carbon monoxide detector just in case.

For some people the promise of deep discounts isn't temptation enough to stay outdoors for days.

"Nah, I wouldn't. The only time I would go out in temperatures like this is to go hunting," said one man.

Those in line said this is fun and worth their while when they think of the money they'll save.

"When you have the set up I have it is pretty simple. It's almost unfair."

Best Buy is opening at 6 p.m. this year on Thanksgiving Day.

Seriously, the stores should masks it where they can only camp out the night before. This camping out three days before is for the birds (penguins). If they rotate and pull shifts on the spot, that's not like staying in line. Where are these people handling their need to urinate or defecate? Do they have a permit to handle that kind of waste in public?
