I know some of you look forward to this each year, haha. Just got (via email) the Walmart legal letter. The physical copy should be here any day now as well. Black Friday season has officially started :)

The season is now truly upon us.

 

Walmart has once again not disappointed. I keep hoping every year much like the other scrooge that their heart will grow three sizes. :)

Since it has been unseasonably warm here, I needed this to make the season feel real.  Thank you Walmart :holiday10

Does it state that you can release their ad whenever you feel like it?

Does it talk about them continuing their poor customer service?

 

I wonder if at this point, they just put the title at the top in corporate letterhead and type "You know the drill. For additional details, please reference last year's letter."

I know when they first started sending the letter, you had to take down the leaked ad. Then, of course, you started getting the letter before you got the leaked ad.  I'm just curious, do you still get the leaked ad since they started releasing it early themselves?

IIRC, he gets the ad straight from walmart (possibly from others that happen to catch a peek and send it on not realizing he cant post it) and in turn for their "kindness" he waits until the date they give him to release it.

It wouldn't be the Black Friday season without a legal letter from Walmart. Now, where's their BF ad? Come on Walmart spill the beans

They still haven't actually said we could post it, but considering it's on their site, that's enough of an OK for me.

 

I also got a letter from the same lawyers about the Sam's Club ad - days after the ad was posted on the Sam's Club web site.

 

Those lawyers are sure earning that $$$.

From the looks of the ad, perhaps we need to send them a spooky letter demanding a reprint! :wife:  :gdcensored:  :gdangry4:
