We took the data from the past 5 years to get an average of how many days before BF each store's ad typically gets leaked here on GD.

We then took those numbers and made a "calendar" for this year based on this year's BF date of 11/25.

Here are some of the more popular stores and when they could possibly be posted this year based on past history:

10/1/11
Ace Hardware

10/9/11
Half Price Books

10/17/11
Harbor Freight

10/28/11
Sears

11/3/11
Gander Mountain
Lowe's

11/5/11
Office Max
Walgreens

11/6/11
Military BX
Kmart
Macy's

11/9/11
Kohls

11/10/11
Navy Exchange
Costco
JCPenney

11/11/11
Target
Best Buy
Old Navy
Radio Shack
CVS Pharmacy

11/12/11
Dell Home
hhgregg

11/13/11
Toys R Us
Meijer
Bass Pro Shops
Staples

11/14/11
Pep Boys
Modell's
Big Lots
Office Depot
Michael's
Kmart Thanksgiving

11/15/11
Dick's Sporting Goods
Home Depot
BJ Wholesale

11/16/11
Walmart
Cabela's
Menards

11/17/11
PetSmart
Sports Authority

11/18/11
Gamestop
Sam's Club
Ikea

So as you can see, as of today, the schedule is pretty accurate. We have the 3 ads that "should" have come out by now, and based on past history, it wouldn't be shocking to see Sears' Black Friday ad be leaked this week.

Again, these are just guesses based on past years. Don't whine if these dates don't hold up this year :P

Thanks to a couple of my helpers for putting this together for everyone to check out :)

I don't think the list in this thread gets updated - from my understanding this is a list of past years dates averaged.

It helps to see how and when the other ads came out. Having at least an estimate makes me less anxious

Thanks for the info. Walmart just announced that as of Novemeber 1-December 25, if you purchase an item and then find it lower bring your receipt and the ad and they'll give you the difference back on a gift card. I can't wait for Black Friday!!!!

So Sears should come out any day now. Im excited for it because I need a new TV for my bedroom. Depending on price though I may have to wait for Target or Walmart (If Walmart its coming from online I will not get trampled for a stinkin tv lol)

It's only an estimation. We could get Targets BF ad today for example because we can not determine the exact day we will receive each one. An example for the opposite would be for us not to receive an ad at all, and you would only see that ad in your newspaper on Thanksgiving.

do you think that all the stores with layaway and early openings may push the ads leaks closer to bf?

Looks like we are coming to the point where we should start seeing something every couple of days, and every day next week. :cool:

So at this point last year (12 days before BF) we still hadn't seen ads from Walmart, Staples, OfficeMax, Kmart, GameStop and many others that we already have.

We have some stores left - Home Depot, Office Depot, the rest of Sears, Meijer, Macy's and some smaller ones, but these next 10 days should be relatively quiet, and then the fun online BF shopping begins :D

Quiet? Hmmm does that mean the whining consequences has been lifted in the Where is Meijer add thread? :P Kinda neat to see how many are getting on the early is good bandwagon. Its what we have all asked for year after year finally nice to get the feeling we are being heard! :)
