For me it's so much about what's in/not in the ads this yr. I feel like so many ads were leaked by so many different sources this yr and it seemed like they started to leak real early too. Kinda took the excitement/anticipation/fun out of it for me, to the point where I have almost no interest now this yr. I will say I thought/hoped to see more deals for unlocked phones like the S9 or iphone x.

I think the ads have a lot of great deals...but as the family gets older, there isn't as much I want to get for them. Plus they already have some of the stuff. There are a lot of TVs-mostly bigger than I look for. It was easier when the kids were little and liked anything you got them. lol

The ads are a little disappointing but it's because I have a preteen and none of the stuff she wants are in the ads. OMG!!!

It only gets worst and more expensive - LOL. I loved it more when it doesnt matter. As long as it lighted up and made noises I was the best.....Now it is this brand, that brand or that phone doesn't fit my style ? Your style is not in my wallet, use it or nothing at all. Oh how I love them so much...

I don’t think the ads r that great either. Walmart looks exactly like last years. Won’t stop me from shopping but I’m not impressed.

Not much I am looking for is in the ads either. I do want a set of luggage for DD15 but my DSIL gave me a nice list (he even included pictures so I would understand) but I am not seeing any of it in the ads. I do see a few things but not the majority.

For me the difference this year isn't so much they suck, but I'm not in the market for much, so a lot of stuff doesn't interest me.  Though I do always enjoy this thread so I can't wait to see some of these replies.

I have to agree. Not in the market for much, but I'm still a little disappointed in the hardcopy ads. I have a feeling that stores will announce online only sale items just before BF.

It's not that I'm disappointed...it's just that I don't see some of the things I usually buy on BF for my household. Like all of the gift items that I want are there, but I don't see the Sonicare toothbrush replacement heads I usually buy, and similar.


Plus, Target's Wondershop Saturday deals get worse and worse each year. For a solid few years they offered $50 off of $100, and last year and now this year it's down to $25 off $75 or something like that. For the first time ever I think I'll bypass that for the Joann/Michael's sales...sorry Target!

Sonicare toothbrush replacement heads! I knew there was something missing from Target’s ad. That is disappointing. I bought a year supply of them last year so nearly out. :(

It's not that there isn't great deals, but now that my kids are 24 and 18 it's easier to buy gift cards and cash.  I may still go out to just to look around. This year though I don't have to worry about racing anywhere except Petsmart for the litter.
