WM and BB are working way too hard to keep them secret. I'm going w/ Ace Hardware.


I agree with you, I'm saying Ace Hardware also!

I voted for Wal-Mart. Kind of hoping they try a different tactic and think they will get more customers just because their ad was "leaked". I have to admit since I found this site I have shopped at stores I would not have gone to if I had not seen their leaked ad well in advance of Thanksgiving Day.

I'll also echo Ace Hardware as first.

Purely speculation, but since Ace Hardware stores are independently-owned and operated (http://www.myace.com), I think the store owners need a little more time to get everything ready, therefore the ads have to go out to the stores sooner. Every other store that does a circular (BB, CC, W-M, Target, etc.) are all corporate-owned.

Again, this is purely speculation! Posted Image

Gotta go with Ace as well. If not Ace it will be something very off the beaten path like Ace.

Walmart didn't have a good ad last year. Maybe it will be a great one this year. Keep your fingers crossed

Based on the fact that Walmart's ad was almost the last to get leaked last year, and that the Ceo's was ticked about it, my guess is it's going to be even worse this year to see it. Even though I hope it is the 1st, and hopefully with better ads than the previous years, besides bathrobes and and non-competitive prices. :no:

I am going with Walmart but Best Buy is a very close second


No way... Best Buy never leaks early. It's always a crappy store like Kmart or Wal Mart.

I will say Ace also, with the minor retailers, and I would say of the major retailers CompUsa or Walmart will leak out in mid October. The CEO of Phillips has already mentioned some deals with WalMart as has Apple too.....................................

Who wants to bet me that the moment we see the first ad come in it'll show up for auction on eBay? I remember people did that last year and made some small fortunes selling the leaked ads to poor saps who didn't know any better. And the ads they were selling even had the web site's 'stamp' on it mentioning where to get it for free.

That's just ... wrong.


Omg I can't believe people did that. Wouldn't you get in serious trouble for selling leaked BF ads?

I voted Kmart, although after thinking on it some more, I'm curious if some big players won't secretly leak their ad early to see customer reactions to them with enough time to tweak the ad before the big day.

(and the sad/scary thing is, I'm willing to bet there would be more than one person on here who would pay if we did offer such a thing, lol)


I bet there'd be several...but I'll save my money for shopping and wait the darn extra 10 minutes tapping my fingers all the while!

You're not paying for the ad, your paying for their time and trouble to download, copy, paste and take your money via ebay.;)

Another vote for Ace--at least we were able to stock up on all of our home painting supplies for pennies after rebate, and we did not have to stand in line for hours to buy it either.
