Attention! If you plan to pay with your Star Card, please start collecting your coupons (inserted into the Aafes flyer). You can combine them for extra savings.....

When I clicked the link, it took me to the AAFES Home page. Do they already have the black friday ads on the website? Fort Bragg is a two hour drive, but they have 3 - 4 exchanges which would make it worth the drive.

No, the flyer won't be out until 3 weeks prior.... I spoke with our Manager last night. She hasn't seen the flyer either , but she had mentioned that the Plasmas and Computers would be a big Door Buster. More to come!!!

Last couple of years I've gone to the BX first on BF. I like the $20 GC they give away, plus the sales are pretty good. Last year I priced matched and I got what I wanted at the other store prices plus no tax!! It was great. I go all the days they offer the GC. You just can't beat it. I did get our Star Card bill today and it had on-line coupons inside. I'll have to make a point of getting the sales ad. Thanks for the heads up!

How can you sign up for the homedelivery of the Aafes flyer? I keep trying to figure this out (is it on the website?), but I can't find it. We went to Aafes last year on BF (it was one of our later stops) and still got some really good deals so depending on what they have this year it may be an earlier stop.

Thanks for the link, I signed up for the emailing list and the homedelivery option so hopefully I'll start getting the flyers soon (or in 6-8 weeks according to the aafes website).

Thanks. I also signed up. Pity it takes too long for the Black Friday coupons to arrive. I've seen the offer for home mailers, but didn't realize there was extra coupons inside. Now, of course, I could just kick myself for not signing up earlier. Once again thanks for the insight. ;)

Our exchange here at Fort Drum has a HUGE sign advertising the BF sale, doors open at 6 am and 20 dollar g.c's for first 100 customers and .15 cents off gasoline and additional 10% off coupons for use that weekend. Didn't see an ad itself, but will be going there later and try and snag one.

I about caused an accident driving by ours, they have a HUGE banner hanging outside. I saw Black Friday and hit the brakes. Bad thing to do at lunch time on a pay day near the exchange complex.

I'm sooo hoping they have one of the TV's BB or CC slash the price on so we can PM it and knock 10% off with the coupon they give out for one item the first 2 hours. That would make my day and hubbies. Mara

Has anyone ever had problems with the exchange honoring or not their sale sign prices? I was there last Thursday and had a problem with the price an item rang up not being what the sale sign said, the assitant mgr said they would not honor the sign price as it was for a different item. Said it was for the small not the large, yet the sign just had the item name and the sale price. I know other stores would have just honored the price and then changed the signs to read correctly. Never have encountered that one before so was wondering if anyone else has had that problem, especially with BF coming I want to try and PM alot of stuff but not if it will be such a hassle. Ended up a gentleman agreed with me and he actually paid for the item. Crazy day to be sure.

I have had that happen to me. Here is what I did. I called headquarters in Dallas

After explaining my problem, I was put in touch with the regional Aafes Manager, he not only fixed the problem, but also gave me a 20% Coupon of any purchase.........Which I of course used on top of everything else on BF........they didn't like me very much.

HTH feel free to pm if you need more info.....Silke

There is a coupon section inside your Aafes flyer that you can sign up for. See picture in one of my previous posts.
