Let this be a lesson that the Ace ad this year was EXTREMELY early and we shouldn't expect another ad for close to a month if things hold true to form.

Your welcome... You know, you'd think I'd keep a running list each year, but no... I spent an hour sifting through the 2006 BF archive. Posted Image

You're quite welcome. I do it to keep the "WHERE ARE THE ADS!!!!" posts down to a soft murmur.

All you have to do is go through the 2004 Archive and look for threads about listing the ad on the site (usually started by Brad) or a list of the sale items... And make a note of the date.

I know Meijer was posted last year, but it is not on the list. What day did that ad come out? I think it was one of the later ones.

I just looked through the thread:
http://forums.gottad...ighlight=Meijer

It looks like 11/13/06. I'll update the list the OP.

I don't believe the actual ad came out on 10/20. For Kmart last year I was sent design instructions for the graphics design team to layout the ad and I tried to decipher everything from that and post a list of items on 10/20, but the actual ad didn't get leaked for a week or two after that I believe.
