We took the data from the past 6 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 11/23.

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

10/1/12
Ace Hardware

10/9/12
Half Price Books

10/13/12
Harbor Freight

10/27/12
Sears

11/3/12
Gander Mountain
Lowe's

11/3/12
Office Max
Walgreens

11/6/12
Military BX
Kmart
Macy's

11/7/12
Kohls

11/8/12
Navy Exchange
Costco
JCPenney

11/9/12
Target
Best Buy
Old Navy
Radio Shack
CVS Pharmacy

11/10/12
Dell Home
hhgregg

11/11/12
Toys R Us
Meijer
Bass Pro Shops
Staples

11/12/12
Pep Boys
Modell's
Big Lots
Office Depot
Michael's
Kmart Thanksgiving

11/13/12
Walmart
Dick's Sporting Goods
Home Depot
BJ Wholesale

11/14/12
Cabela's
Menards

11/15/12
PetSmart
Sports Authority

I think it's all about the thrill of anticipation . The feeling of "Living on the Edge" untill the "REAL DEAL". The fact what "WE KNOW" whats to come. The saving of monnies. Making sure you have enough even if you dont SPEND IT ALL. The day dreaming while at work. Makes the day ALOT LOVELIER. The making of "plans ahead of time". It's in the air. THE FALL , it all ties together & makes us crazy. I love it all & can hardly wait. Im already making PLANS OH YESS !, We love it Brad. We NEED it Jim.
Above all WE LOVE THE LIVE BC. & THE BF TEE'S.

:) BF 2012 here I comeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!!:smart:

Any possibility of seeing the date for Target last year? It doesn't seem to appear in the list currently. Thanks.

Actually, you are right; it is not on the list for last year. The 11/9 is an approximate date for this year. The good news I can tell you that last year it was 11/11 (I have it from the day I downloaded it ;)).

Target prediction of 11/9 was right on the money. LOL
