Fry's Ads 4/22-26 (Updated Daily)

Here's the entertainment software listings from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (HOU), Chicago (IL), Los Angeles/Orange County (LA), San Jose/Silicon Valley (SJ), and Washington state (WA) Fry's Ad(s). These prices are valid only for the dates listed in the subject line.

The items listed below are as they appear in the Fry's Ads. If an item is listed as "SJ only", for example, it could still be on sale at other locations (i.e. - Austin, Houston, Sacramento, San Diego, AZ, GA, IN, NV, OR), but it only appeared in the SJ ad. However, since these ads are not available online, I cannot confirm them.

If anyone knows of a website to view any further ads, please let me know.

Unless otherwise indicated, items below are listed in all six (DFW, HOU, IL, LA, SJ, and WA) ads.

Ad updates:
DFW, HOU, IL, LA, WA: Fri-Mon, Weds
SJ: Everyday

My guess is the Blue Man Group price was raised with all the publicity they received from the Arrested Development shows. Pretty funny stuff.

Some nice prices... picked up Blade to replace my old crappy snapper version. Sold that one so it only cost me $1 to get it in a keepcase.

Fido,

Many thanks for the weekly work you do on these posts. I check them regularly.

Just wanted to give you a heads up on the Dallas ads. You said in your post above that the Dallas Morning News ads weren't available. The same ads also run in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (star-telegram.com) and are accessable through their website.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Doc. I use the Star Telegram website also. The only reason that I mentioned that the Friday Dallas Morning News ads weren't available is that they left them off their website. You are right, the Friday ads are usually 99.9% identical between the two newspapers. The other days of the week are harder because the DMN ads contains a few more items than the FWST does. So, I listed it as missing just in case that 0.1% difference showed up this week. The same thing happens in LA and SJ too, with different papers running similar, but sometime slightly different ads.

Case in point is today's ads. If you look below, I list many DVDs as on sale in DFW, but they do not appear in the FWST ad: Bridget Jones 2, the $3.99 DVDs, etc.
