now just why is it Ace, I mean does no-one there care about secrecy, or do they just put their ad together before about anyone else? I know ACE is the first to break, but does anyone know why they are a perinial favorite to slip out first?

I know, read your speculation, but was wondering if anyone had hard facts or other opinions/reasons.

I was curious as to how you guys got it. Anonymous email? Secret untraceable letter?

Since I already have all the ads, I vote for whichever I decide to post first :)


ummm...what are your waiting for, post them ******, starting with Best Buy. Hell, at least give us some spoilers! ... starting with Best Buy.

Last year I think Best Buy was the last one to post - It was the last one I was waiting for.

I am of the opinion that stors should leek out part of their ads just to get customers pumped up and excited about shopping at thier store. ON the other hand, after seeing Wal-marts ad last year I had no interest in waisting any of my pressious early bird hours in Wal-Mart. Each year Wal-Mart moves further down to the bottom of my list of places to go on BF.

Also love CompUSA - Last year Comp was a big dissappointment. Hopefully they will make up for it this year by having 512 desktop memory for 9.99

Out of the majors, I think it will be Walmart.....Best Buy likes to see the anticipation build and won't leak too early.

Ace Hardware was the very first ad I seen last year. I would love for WM to post early or at least leak to the public like 2-3 weeks ahead. Ace was extremely early last year......about 2 weeks.

So, who's gonna come in second? How 'bout the trifecta? :yup: Without looking, I'd wildly guess it's gonna be Ace Hardware (obviously first), Staples (in second), and Radio Shack (finishing in third).

I am hoping Walmart since that is where I usually go, but I don't think they will be first.

Based on what I've seen in the past, I think there is a good chance that the first "big" ads will be the Sears and Kmart ads. Those seem to always come out early (especially Sears). Radio Shack also seems to come out early. As for the really big stores, usually Wal-Mart is first, followed by Target. Best Buy / Circuit City / Staples seem to be some of the last to come out each year.
