I usually head out around 8am. I go to 2 different stores and get 2 copies. We have a problem with people taking extra ads or some places not getting all the ads. A few years ago at Dunkin Donuts I went through all their papers and there was no BB ad. Now I go 2 places and always get all the ads.

LMAO, lets just say I did something LIKE this last year. :D

My neighbor's paper is usually delivered at about 5am, but he doesn't wake up to get it until about 7am. So I'll swipe it at about 5:30 or so.

JUST KIDDING! HA!



There's a point in your life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything. But it's not giving up... It's realizing that you don't need certain people, the bull, and the drama they bring

why would you 'need' a paper, we have had the ads on here for WEEKS... ok this year, maybe a week out. I have my lists, and I know what I am looking for. not looking at the regular paper saves me money!

Before I knew about Black Friday sites I would rush out at 4 AM to see what there was but now that I look through them for weeks before Black Friday I just wait and look at them when I get to my mom's house around noon!

We live about an hour from St. Louis. Every year my husband drives all the way in to St. Louis to get the paper. He leaves about 5am. There are not as many ads in our paper. I already know what is on sale, but I need the actual ads to get price matches done and catch those off the wall and smaller stores that don't make it to Gottadeal

I get up oh, about 5am or so and drive 30 minutes to the city where I'll be shopping just to get the paper so I know I have the right ads. It's always the same Meijer store, and after carefully checking a minimum of three papers I'll pick up a couple of things if there's anything good in the ad, then go home and have some coffee.

We have a local paper that comes out on Wednesday's so I get that and it has most all of the ads in there so I get a day ahead of the game for the physical paper. I have usually see all the ads on gotta deal already.

Mine gets delivered to my house. Just have to walk the 120ft to the box. I happen to just renew my subscription for 7 days/week so I will get the Thanksgiving paper. Afterward I will go back to Sundays only.


My Sunday-only delivery includes the Thanksgiving day paper.

For the past two years the guy was late delievering the papers to the gas stations, 7 eleven etc. I had to get it after Kmart. There are always a ton of people waiting for him. This year I just re suscribed us to the paper 4 days a week, including Thursdays, so hopefully it will be there when I head out.

You guys are making me consider two papers, why do you get 2? I can only think the coupons might be worth it but I will definitely double check ads before blindly picking one up.

:gdyeahthat:, only not so LOL...there'd be a takedown, for sure, because that means WAR...I know we see the ads ahead of time, but that doesn't stop me from taking them along when I go out for BF...

That is what stopped me from doing it last year after 3 walks to gas station. I would be beyond upset if someone did it to me SO I couldn't do that to someone else. I rationalized the old people wouldn't be shopping BF but still couldn't do it.

I only need the internet ones from her, but DW likes them in her hand, so when I get up to go to work on thanksgiving day I pick them up. I always work thanksgiving day so I can have BF off.

For me, we have a local paper delivery business right up the street from us, and because we know the people who work there we usually just stop on by between 3 and 4am to pick up our copies as soon as they get them. Oh and to the people who question actually have the paper ads when they're already leaked on here, two things: Paper ads are good for any included coupons, and also good for PMing. EDIT - I just realized that this thread is technically asking when you get up to get the ads and to answer that, well I am usually still up at this time. The past few years I've stayed up until about 6 or 7, then I take a nap, wake up, eat some food, then go line up at the store of choice. :)

For the past few years our carrier has gotten smart about the weight of the Thanksgiving day papers and makes a special run on Wednesday afternoon to drop off the inserts early. I LOVE IT and make sure she gets a nice tip at Christmas. :)

I can't believe I don't know this/remember, but when do the sale ads come in the paper? Are they in Thanksgiving newspapers? Day before?
