LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The door-buster deals are out from both Toys "R" Us and Best Buy and so are the store start times. 

This year, they're presenting a real conflict of interest unless you want to gobble gobble gobble while you're standing in line.

The website just published a scan of the ad scheduled for Thanksgiving Day newspapers.

Toys "R" Us plans to open on Thanksgiving day at 5 p.m. That's three hours earlier than normal. The special sale pricing runs only from 5-9.

Here are some of the hottest deals.
     LeapPad2 Explorer: $39
     Sony PlayStation 3 bundle: $199
     Blu-ray movies:  $9.99

Best Buy is planning a 6 p.m. opening on Thanksgiving Day. That was leaked by PR reps from the store on a number of morning newscasts. The opening is two hours earlier than Macy's Sears, Kohl's and J.C. Penney.

The Best Buy best deals will include.
     LG 55" HDTV for just $499 (reg $1,000)
     Insignia 30" LCD HDTV for just $169 (reg $249)
     Amazon Kindle Fire HD for $99 (reg $199)

Remember, make sure your computer is protected on Cyber Monday with secure wi-fi networks.

When you're sharing all of that personal information, you don't want to share it with the bad guys.
