hey CAGs,

there are ad scans for all the big stores: TGT, WMT, BB, KMT, etc., and some print ads on turkey day itself. but i've *never* seen an early copy of the fry's electronics BF ad insert. by the time our newspaper arrives (5 AMish), it's too late b/c the line has already wrapped around the store. and no one in line has the ad, so they're all going on faith? does anyone know where to get a copy of the friday paper early; ie, late thurs evening? i live in the SF bay area. TIA.



Here in SoCal the Frys Black Friday ad always comes in the Thursday Thanksgiving edition of the newspaper (LA Times here). I've gotten it the past few years without fail.

It might depend on the newspaper in your area (I'd check the largest circulation ones first), but the print ads are definitely available early Thursday...

I pre-ordered that badboy at THQ's online store since it will come with the SR3 season pass included for free ($20 saving). Also, no shipping or tax fees. Hard to pass on that.

ooooh...tempting. i was sitting on some Gamestop credit i was going to use for this.

I don't know the answer to your question, but you should ask the guy that does the Fry's ad threads here. I bet he'd know.


was thinking that when i posted here, but didn't want to cross-post & contribute to thread inflation. but will do that now, thx.

Do you get San Jose Mercury News? The ad should be on Thursday newspaper.

Have you played it on the short 9 hours it has been available?


I wasn't commenting on how good it was. I was commenting on the fact that the games presence is nonexistent. Usually somewhat major titles go on sale on Black Friday. Goldeneye isn't that.

I can definitely buy into that logic. I usually do a pretty good job keeping up with new releases, but I didn't even realize this game had been ported until just now.

Do stores offer price adjustments on their own BF deals? I'm getting antsy to replace my broken 360.

Only one that might would be Walmart. I know Target and Best Buy won't do it.

What a great time of the year! Two years ago cheapassgamer convinced me to get a ps3 on black Friday and it was a wonderful choice. Unfortunately, I sold it last fall to buy a dslr but now I'm looking into getting another one. Is there any chance we might see a ps3 bundle for $199 or less this year? I picked up the holiday bundle from walmart a couple years ago for $299 I believe so surely we will see some good stuff this year.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to spending black Friday with y'all!

I'm not sure if any of the big stores will. Walmart might but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't on there big hit items or doorbusters.

I've always wondered but never tried doing the price guarantee thing. If you know the PS3 or other hot item is going on sale on black friday can you buy it on monday and then walk in on black friday with your receipt in hand and ask to get the price adjusted? I've never tried this but it seems like if falls within all the rules.

For those who are worried about buying a game this month, just buy it. If there is a deal on Black Friday for that game then buy it on Black Friday as well and then return that copy to the store you bought it at full price, assuming that the store you buy it from has a return policy of 30 days. Or, if you're patient, you can just wait. I'm going to be swamped with schoolwork for next month so I'm just going to wait it out for some games such as AC: Revelations, Uncharted 3, etc.


Only applicable for big box retailers with sane return policies. Does not apply to PC gaming, online shopping, or anything to do with Gamestop.

Technically not a price match though if it's from the same store. Really it's just a refund and resell.

The don't allow return during that day. Feel free to check with your local store manager and see what they say.

I'm going to try doing this at Wal-Mart for my replacement 360. I'm going to pick one up next week and look to get a BF price adjustment if applicable.

It's $40 for a student reup. I just got mine today because they added some free kindle books to loan to go along with their free video streaming. Black Friday was crazy last year, I remember buying a crapload of stuff, but the sales were like hourly so I saved a crapload on shipping because they were all under $25, and I would buy like one $15, or $20 game here or there.

Looking at games I want, hoping to see Ass Creed Brotherhood for sub $20. If I can find that somewhere I will be happy (I still need to play through AC II :lol:).

I know that Rayman Origins wont be on sale, but if I can get it on sale, I will drive somewhere for it.

Stores will RARELY match BF prices afterwards because they're considered a limited time offer.

Actually, Toys R Us had a Buy 1 Get 1 for $5 during their BF ad last year and the original Wii version of GoldenEye was part of that for the very few Wii games that were on the list.
