They aren't too far behind last year. The retailers are slowly getting more protective of the ads to try and prevent them from appearing on sites like this, so that could be part of it as well.

Yup, they seem to do a better job each year. I work for the "big retailer" and the store manager always comes to me asking what the deals for the store will be because they do not get the ads early. Sure they can tell what some of the items will be because of what is coming in off the trucks but it's pretty hush hush stuff.

We can only hope.

The true GottaDeal'ers have to formulate a "game plan" when and where to go.

This is serious stuff :2football

I called and talked to a walmart employee yesterday and I was asking about the PlayItNow systems as they are sold out everywhere. He said they have the ads and he believes that they are on the BF ad so he told me to look for it (thats why he doesn't stock tons of them right now). He said he was told only to put out the bare minimum. I hope hes right!

Lol.. there is a walmart warehouse in our town and every time I see an employee in town somewhere I want to try to bribe them for some information. They must know what is going to be in the ad because I am sure the warehouse is probably starting to stock up on items. :smirk:

The store will not receive the ads early in most cases. The warehouse employees will have a very good idea of what will be there though. I usually know what the ad has in it before our store manager. He found the ads on the internet last year himself I guess.
