(Newser) – Sure, Black Friday isn't for another week, but it's tough to resist the siren call of cheap TVs... A Florida woman and three other families pitched tents in front of a Best Buy in St. Petersburg on Wednesday—yep, 9 days before the big day—and the eager shopper sounds not unlike an ad for the superstore: "You can't beat some of the deals they have on plasmas, flat screens, and laptops. You get to buy it in large quantities,” Christine Orta tells the local NBC affiliate. "We're all students; you've got to pinch a penny; it's affordable right now." But, the Consumerist wonders, how much is she paying to live there for nine days? (Here's the big question: Would you get in line now for these "insane" deals?)
