It doesn't seem to be as good as past years sales. AAFES can do much better than that, I think. I know where I won't be on bf, but I will be there Saturday and Sunday if they give the $20 gift cards out again on both days. Thanks for the info.:)

Your right that is a crock. I'd write congress. Send all the guys off to get hurt then don't leave them the perk of the PX and commisary :(

"Sony CyberShot 6MP Digital Camera $135.00"

Just wanted to let everyone know that that camera is probably the DSC-S500.

SONY Cyber-shot Digital Still Camera DSC-S500
* 6.0 Megapixel Super HAD CCD for cropping and big prints
* 3X Optical/2X Digital Zoom to bring subjects closer
* Optional Memory Stick Duo media recording
* Large 2.4" LCD Screen for shooting and sharing
* Cyber-shot Viewer software for PC thumbnail viewing

A decent camera, but nothing to write home about.

Where are the ad's can I get them now at the PX or shoppet or was this a leak? I'd like to see saturday's ad and Sunday's in hopes of a good camcorder. Can I use the 20% coupon on something over $500 then they just knock $100 off? Mara

In the past, on black friday, they made an announcement over the intercom stating all toys were an add'l amount off. Last year I think it was 20%. You had to be paying attention to what was said to hear, but once the word got out...it was easy pickins! I scored with the add'l off and the coupons and the gift card and the price matching and the tax free...it was GREAT! Even though the ad didn't offer much, Its still the first place I'm heading on Black Friday. :yup:

I got the coupons myself, but I'm using them to order the Wii online that day. It's not worth it to drive over an hour away to my nearest PX, at least not for BF.
