While I thought that I wasn't going to stop at Walmart on Black Friday, now that there may be Secret in store specials posted Thursday and Friday, all hope may not be lost. Hopefully, they come thru:gdcar: :gd_devild :banana:

Brad....I want my time back for the time I wasted on looking at the WM ad. This just confirms why Best Buy always beats WM in sales year after year on BF weekend.

Thanks Wal Mart. That's one less stop I have to make with 3.00 gas. Kohl's, Sears, and Target, here I come.

Amen to that - with 50% off a lot of their toys, Kohl's is my first stop too

Now that the cat's out of the bag, can we please put it back in? I was holding out a smidgeon of hope that the ad we saw was just some cruel joke, oh well.

Pretty craptastic.

I can't believe the kids 4 piece jammies are $4 more than last year..


Yea, I noticed that. Our Wally didn't have any of these last year. It was a pain looking for them when every employee I asked didn't know what I was talking about.

Way CRAPTASTIC! I wont be headed there, I know for a fact that a few items in that circular are HIGHER priced than what I saw things inthe store here 2DAYS AGO!!!! Some items by as much a 5 to 10 dollars. No deal there. Oh well, my ds7 needs glasses anyhow so my money is out the window anyway. (As if Id really put his glasses after BF Sales anyhow LOL.... I really am a good Mom) :D

Wal-Mart should be ashamed of themselves for wasting all that paper to run this crappy ad & all the time it took their printers to run it!!! I thought they said they learned their lesson after a crappy ad a couple years ago. They didn't learn anything. I hope their secret deals are worth looking at because right now we will not going there.

This is the worst ever. I can only hope that in Thursday's paper they will have added lots of stuff. I did read where they said they would have more things that are "secret." The toys are horrible and they have things that are cheaper now like the ePets which are $7 at Target since yesterday. Thanks alot Wally!!!

the only thing I was interested in was the Bratz collectable....it's listed at $25, but I could have swore they were much cheaper last year....gonna research that! Yup $20 last year.....but thats ok, I am almost 100% sure that they still had a few in January that were clearanced to 10 bucks...at least I dont have to go there this year at all! Target here I come!!

Hey Brad, I don't know if someone else has pointed it out but you are missing page 4 of the Walmart Ad where it is a page of only toys for $10 like the Moon Sand, HSM game, Scene It Jr., Transformers, Etc.

This ad is a joke. Wal Mart could not get me there especially after seeing the quality of the polaroid TVs in person over the weekend. Not even worth going near Wal Mart. I'll be at target.:D

Wow, the ad sucked.

BUT if you look on the http://holiday.ri-wa...?section=secret (wal-mart page) they are showing a KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer for $139 on BF from 5a-11a. This one was not int eh ad flyer at all.....

Looks like Wally-World, got the hint that the BF flyer sucked and decided to reveal one of the "Secrets" early to lure us back into the store.

I am in for the Moon Sand and the Transformers, possibly the Jammies. Hopefully since everyone else is banning walmart, I will be able to sneak in and out and off to Target!!!

This is the first time in forever, that Walmart is not a must-go-to-first stop for me. Ironically, the sale's all around are terrible everywhere this year. I spent all day Saturday shopping- (14 hrs) and got 4 gifts. I then went to our local mall's- Holiday Head Start shopping event last night- and got 2 things. I was banking on BF and Walmart-- NOPE-- not impressed!!!! It's usually my biggest place I spend at each year. First it looks like the same old same old- year after year-- and the few doorbuster "unique" items are nothing to write home about!

this is the worst walmart blackfriday ad i have seen in my life......... they made a big deal over early release for nothing. you can find similar deals at alot of other stores, there is nothing that makes walmart stand out and i hope there sales suffer from the crap they have offered us this year. :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup: :yup:

I will have to hit walmart early unfornatly, I have to work that morning. I need them stupid mini choppers of all things. I have a dog that wont use her teeth so everything has to be chopped. Lol. They the perfect size for travel and the rv. I will be getting 5 one for her bag, one for rv, one for house and my sister wants me to pick her up one and a spare incase one breaks. I have been out of town the last 3 bf's and have not had access to a walmart so we are down to one chopper and it is on its last legs, The dog sitter broke one last year:no:

That's an excellent deal.... For, like, 2004. It's a Classic. They've been steadily decreasing in price for the last couple of years. One store had a Classic model earlier this year for $99. And Target had them on clearance recently for $59. I know Wal-Mart is trying, but they're still out of step. For some unknown reason they cannot offer competitive pricing on popular brands. I think they assume that most customers don't pay attention to price.
