We no longer have a Kmart, and I don't shop at Ace anyway. I'm waiting to see what Target and Toys R Us will have. Those are my main stores.

I for one wasn't expecting to be blown away with either Kmart or Ace's ads. I was disappointed though because for the last 2-3 years Kmart has had somethings on their Thanksgivings Day ad that I go for and this year they are not there. I always get the kids new pj's for Hannukah and I would get my lil brother GBA games, this year I needed them for my own kids and they don't have deals on either. My DD has been begging for Doodle Doug so I will be going to get that, not a huge deal on it but enough to get me out of bed. Now to wait for the other ads where I am sure there will be better deals, atleast I hope!

The two released ads do not concern me as much as the overall lack of great deals I've noticed this year from the tech stores (CC, BB, CUSA). I remember last year in the weeks leading up to BF, there were alot of deals that made me think, "That's the lowest price I've ever seen for one of those." For the B&M stores, that hasn't happened once yet. I do realize that what I'm shopping for this year is totally different than years past (alot more focused), but at this point, about the only thing I'm pretty confident will have "best prices ever" will be flat panel HDTVs. Aside from that, I'm only cautiously optimistic.

Im not disappointed in BF overall so far, but with Kmart I am. Im still wondering why they didn't advertise GameBoy Advance games on Thanksgiving! I've been going there for the past several years and always buy the childrens games they have available.

Other than the games that some people look forward to, did anyone expect to be blown away by Ace Hardware and K-Mart deals? That's not where the huge action is at, IMO :gd_twocen


No but normally there is at least ONE or TWO things that get your interest... But NOTHING did.

I never like the Kmart black friday ad. And I don't don ACE hardware so I don't even look at it. But I usually do like kmart thanksgiving sale but Im not crazy for it so far. Maybe when I actually see the flyer I will change my mind.

I'm not dissapointed because I've only seen 2 ads and I won't be shopping in those stores anyway. We don't have a Kmart here anymore and I'm not going to waste my time in a hardware (Ace) store on the other side of town on BF. I am anxiously awaiting the walmart ad so I can at least start shopping for some of the stuff on my list that's not going to be on sale BF.


I'll be PMing that Foreman grill @ Wal-Mart on BF! Wal-Mart is the biggest store in my town and around the area for 40 miles. So I love that I can PM there :) Our WM rule is 45 miles for PMing

Not really, I saw a few things to keep in mind just in case the other stores don't have great deals. But I'm really waiting on the "big" store ads!

Last year Kmart didn't really have anything that appealed to me either. I did go there last and bought a sewing machine, but I was really looking for the expensive electronic deals and so I concentrated on CompUSA (which was great last year), Best Buy and Circuit City. I hope CompUSA has a good ad this year.

We don't have a KMart or an Ace so I am not disappointed yet. I think I am a little spoiled because WalMart was the first ad leaked last year and I am wanting it BAAADDDD!!!!LOL

Kmart and I have been on the outs for the last two years... Therefore, I find myseld both happy that we have the first few ads coming out and disappointed that it is not somthing better than Kmart.

I think that because I am a die hard WM shopper I won't be happy until that ad comes out....hopefully I won't be disappointed

I doubt this year is going to be a flop. I know CC, BB, and WM are going to have some good ones this year.

Aww come on where's the BF Spirit?! j/k ;) Only 2 ads have been leaked there are many more to look forward to! I never expect much from Kmart anyway so I'm dissappointed yet! I am a bit surprised with their TD sale though I will say that.

WalMart was the first ad leaked last year


I will be shocked if it gets leaked before the week of Thanksgiving this year.
From what I understand, there were some major "security breaches" last year, and they are trying to combat those issues this year with MANY security policies being put into place -- including truck drivers delivering them. I am sure someone will get it ... but I bet it's going to be more difficult this year.

I have always gone to Kmart on Thanksgiving day for the great video game deals. This year they don't have anything! So I'll be skipping Kmart this year. I didn't see anything in their add that would make me want to get out of bed and go over there. Coleen

This made me think -- how do we even get out of bed the other 364.25 days of the year outside of BF??? :banana:

I was really dissapointed by the K-mart ad as well. I usually go the Kmart on Thanksgiving for the GB games then on BF after all the good stores. At this rate I may not even be hitting kmart at all. Does anyone know when they start sending you the coupons for the 12 days of christmas from Toysrus?
