Is it just me or is the release of leaked ads really running behind this year?  In the past 5 years or so it seems like the ads were being leaked/released before the end of October.  Here we are just 2 weeks away from Black Friday and the majority of ads are nowhere to be seen.  What do you think?

Not really: https://blackfriday....l.com/dates.php
 
The early ads this year were much bigger stores than they usually are. We had Sam's Club, Home Depot, Best Buy, Macy's and Walmart's first 2 ads in October when we normally have the likes of Harbor Freight, Ace Hardware and Half Price Books.

Nearly all the major ads have been leaked. We're mainly waiting for Walmart's last ad and Target's final 2 weekly BF sales.

 

Yes, there are some lower-level stores that haven't released their ads but keep in mind that this year is very different and the stores want to expand BF into a much larger period this year, so they are less likely to release a BF ad weeks ahead of time because it might take sales away from the sales they are having now. This is likely the reason Target and Walmart haven't released their final ads yet.

Yeah they came out super early even though there spread out over the whole month. Almost dont know what to do with the extra time and extra sleep since I do not have to get up and check at 1am to see if it has been posted yet.

I am still waiting for the Meijer ad, with some kind of desperate hope that they will have something I can't live without LOL

I'm not really doing anything until I see the rest of the ads. So I wish they would hurry up already, lol.

Heavier restrictions being put in most states for Covid, I think the ones on Black Friday itself will be like a normal holiday weekend sale at best.  I'm hoping to find a great sale on a lower end gaming laptop, but not optimistic at all at this point.

Walmart seems to not be doing a regular BF, I see they running those weekly ads. Are they in place of the BF ads?

There will be a 3rd ad that should have a lot more BF items. More info at: https://corporate.wa...ping-experience

First few pages have Ben leaked. The rest will most likely drop tomorrow night.
