Do you feel bad about looking at them early? Or are you like me and want to know and can't wait until the first ads come out?

Both...... I absolutely can't wait, but then feel a little disappointed when I get the Thanksgiving paper and already know what's in it... I have a Brandsmart though which is only here in the south and noone had those ads early last year, so at least that's a surprise
I think I'll try defying gravity .... and you can't pull me down!!!

No, and it's even better that we know the deals before the regular employee know.

I don't feel bad about it at all. It's a fun sport for me, so I enjoy mapping out the best use of my time. I can't wait to get started for this year!!

I love getting the ads early. I was looking to buy a laptop last year. Getting the ads early allowed me to actually go to the store, check out the laptops that were going to be on sale at OD, decide I didn't care for them, come home and order a Dell. Amie

I don't feel bad--their marketing works on me, b/c the ads draw me into stores I might not normally think to put into my morning, like WalGreens, for example.

I just found out you can get the ads early. Last year i spent my time viewing all the ads online the wed before thanksgiving at each stores website. That was a pain while trying to get dinner together for the next day.

I feel bad when, as has been the case in the past 2 years for me, I see the Best Buy BF ad early with all the great doorbuster offers, and then find out on Thanksgiving morning that the Best Buy's in central Ohio decide not to have those specials and replace them on the ad's front page with a dumb gift card offer ($20 gift card by mail for every $100 spent). -Mark-

Exactly! I need to plan out my shopping and decide which things to buy ahead of time, and which things to get on BF.
