I was told Wal-Mart would NOT have secret sales this year. However, things change.

WM got mad last year because there ad was leaked on the internet and got alot of news media. Because of that WM had un-published sales that you can only find out about on there website or during the Dallas Cowboy Game on thanksgiving day. To my understanding they were crap items.

They did have 5 items that you could view online Thanksgiving Day. One of the items was Shrek 3 for 12.99. I got it for my kids!

Other parts of the "Secret Sale" Not all Walmarts new what was going on. I called a few and all were clueless. Not every Walmart had the same ad it seemed. Remember the jokes about how secret it was that the employees didn't even know. I remember being frustrated with Walmart.

Considering how clueless a lot of the Wal-Mart stores are in general, that does not surprise me. There is a new Super Center about a mile from my house, and they are all telling people they are a "Franchise" location. They claim they don't have to follow Corporate rules. LOL! They are so funny!

How do I get a Wal-Mart Franchise??? I want one!

The secret sales are a joke. Bath robes and DVD box sets that they have till Valentine's day. Wal Mart has dropped the ball over the years. They believe they are the only option in town and they try to bully everyone around with their letters to websites about not posting this and posting that. I would figure they would want to get as much advertisement as possible. BB does not seem to mind.

Yep, the jokes were pretty funny. The merchandise they offered for the secret sale was kind of a joke too. ;)

Wait, what is the price on the PS2? Is the sale saying that you will receive the PS2 plus a $30 gift card?

If I recall there is no link until the night before or on the actual day of the sale - that is the "secret" part of it. Last year there were employees of the store that didn't even know of the sale themselves.

Wal-Mart DID do some secret sales last year so that has happened before. The person who started the thread is new but rjjan who was posting has actually been a member since 2005 - not exactly a newbie even though he/she hasn't posted much.

I also know that Wal-Mart did have cheap laptops on certain days last year which sold fast.
