Fry's Ads 5/6-10 (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, 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.

They are out of Spamalot in Plano so don't even try. The guy working there acted clueless. How could I have even thought the managers would show their employees what goes on sale in their departments on Friday?

Did you look at the bottom of the CD and DVD racks ? Sometimes they have boxes of extra stuffed under each up and down the aisle. I have sometimes found "extras" in boxes several aisles over (e.g. a comedy in a box under the racks in the action aisle). You may want to take a quick look, if you want it badly enough. When they were doing the Stargate seasons cheap, I found one this way as I recall.

They looked on the computer and it said they had sold the 2 copies they started the day with. I price matched at Best Buy with zero hassle. Take that you Fry's bastards!

And off topic more than slightly - is it just me or do Fry's employees always seem a little sketchy?

Thanks in advance.
You're in some serious YMMV territory there, if you're trying to PM. I'm assuming by your username, that you are based out of Seattle. Here's the ad:

http://shopping.nwsource.com/RopAds....914&ad=1687097

But bear in mind, a) is your PM at a store that will take a printout? b) Will they take only a small section of the ad sans dates? c) Will they accept the price since it's one of the "arrow" pricings?

Add it all up and I'd say without the actual ad from Friday's paper, you've got about a 15-20% shot at getting a PM. At least, from my LA store experiences, maybe WA is more forgiving. Even with the ad, I'd say your odds are only about 50%.
