JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Lines are already forming around the First Coast for those big Black Friday bargains and our #TeamFCN shoppers are among those bringing you the fun, lines and madness.

MORE: Plan ahead to get the best Black Friday weekend deals

We've been asking our digital and broadcast audience to join #TeamFCN.  These  shopping warriors will be tweeting, sending pictures and videos Thanksgiving night and early Black Friday morning.

Among them will be Jacque Crawford, a controller at JCR systems.  She's got a big list that includes Bealls for Christmas decorations, Kohls for clothes and  Toys "R" Us for toys.

Tory Hamlin, a mother of four, told First Coast News she saves more on Black Friday than on any other day of the year.  "The deals I look for are the ones that you will NEVER get any other time of year," Hamlin said. In past years half-price video games have been among the items on her list. This year it's tablets.

Malik Barrymore says she'll be Black Friday shopping at Best Buy, looking to snag a 40-inch HDTV for $179.

DEALS: Via text alert, tweets and more

Nicoke Wilkes signed up to be a #TeamFCN Black Friday warrior.  She's been getting the deals for 14 years. For her it's as much about the adventure as the savings.  "I like the deals and the fun I have with my family and friends," said Wilkes. This year her bargain focus will be electronics, toys and clothes.

PREPARE NOW: Scan the coupons and circulars

She'll be paying close attention to deals at Walmart, Target JCPenney, Kmart and Kohls.
