Best Buy kicks off Black Friday marketing with essay contest

Halloween is over, and that means it's officially the start of Black Friday marketing! Best Buy kicked off the season today with the start of its Black Friday VIP contest. Winners of an essay contest get a $1,000 Best Buy gift card, a limo ride to the Sawgrass store and half-hour early entry (4:30 a.m.) for November 27, the day after Thanksgiving.

To enter, contestants must submit an essay of 250 words or less on "what they are most excited about this Black Friday.'' This is the second year for the contest, and South Florida is among 25 markets participating.

And for those who camp out early as an excuse to skip that awkward family dinner to get the best gadget deals, the first 50 in line at the Sawgrass store will get gift cards ranging from $5 to $25 and one worth $100 -- but you won't know how much until you check out.

It should be "250 words or less" and "checkout" is 2 words. Can I be a judge?

Sigh, thanks Max. Cursed typos... 9_9
