Black Friday is a little over 2 weeks away, but two friends in Beaumont California are already camping out at Wal-Mart, ready to cash in on holiday deals before anyone else. Seriously. Here's why.


According to ABC Chicago, Vicky Torres and her friend Juanita Alva picked out their spots in front of the Best Buy in Beaumont last Wednesday.

They're ready for the long haul, stocked with mittens, snacks and hot coffee.

"We're good to go," Torres said.

Alva and Torres switch off sleeping at the store overnight, saving each other's spot. Alva's husband takes part if for some reason, they both need to leave.

"The point is to get the sales." Alva's husband said.

When stores open for Black Friday, Alva and Torres are hoping to get a 50-inch, high-definition TV for $199.

Not worth it to me to miss all that time with family and all that time from work. I'm lucky if I can even stay up after the Thanksgiving meal to cash in on any deals.
