Arrow Target 6/28/09 ad

I've seen an image of 1 page of the movies, however I don't want to take my chances posting it (Target has been taking action).

However these were listed:

Jonas Brothers 25.99
12 Rounds 25.99
Street Fighter 26.99

??? You've "seen" an image, but don't want to "post" it?

He is saying that he has it but if he posts the image of it Target may try to take action against him and as much as he may like us he doesn't need the hassle.

You can pretty much take it to the bank. I don't think loveforbluray has ever posted anything less than accurate.

Because it is early. It gives people a heads up on an ad that only employees know about. It's almost like insider trading. "Hey, heads up, don't buy that now, because I know for a FACT that we will have it for this price next week." It mucks up sales and it always comes from an employee or someone who knows an employee and is actually ON the application you fill out that you will not give out information about said sales before they are released to the public.

Makes perfect sense.

funny, because the reason why that clause was put into most apps, is because of black friday.

That and a lot of the huge sales that stores seems to do during the rest of the year now.

Like when Circuit City would have $5 game sales and the lists were leaked a full MONTH before the "official" start date of the sale. Like actual scans with sku #s and all. Plus, people go to Best Buy all the time, buy said game/movie for the current price, then go back on Sunday when the sale pops to get the difference refunded. That's why stores have issues with this. "You could buy this TV now, but if you wait until 7/4, it will be 1/2 price for 1 day only. It screws the company, but they don't care." Yes they do, Johnny, yes they do.
