Fry's Ads 8/3-7 (Updated Daily)

Here's the entertainment software listings from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (HOU), Chicago (IL), Las Vegas (LV), Los Angeles/Orange County (LA), Sacramento (SAC), San Jose/Silicon Valley (SJ) and Seattle (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 B&M Ads. If an item is listed as "SJ only", for example, it could still be on sale at other locations (i.e. - Austin, San Diego, AZ, GA, IN, 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.

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

Wow, I am so going to get that HD Superman II. Thanks.

When it says SJ only for example, does that mean that the price is only good at that location or just that it showed up in that paper's ad, but the price is probably good at all Fry's?

yeah, i can't believe that hd and br are already dropping that much on sale but i'm happy.

i'm on the fence about getting the 360 HD-DVD so this helps

re: the prices, I always notice that if it's on special in San Jose then the stores here in Los Angeles also have it on special.. usually just not as good.

i.e. if a DVD is on sale for 6.99 in SJ it might be on sale for 7.99 or 8.99 here.

rarely, i walk in and see things for the same sale price but it seems from my frequent comparisons that SJ gets 95% of the real killer Fry's deals.

don't know about LV, DFW or other locations though.

another thing I notice about Fry's is, one out of every five or six times I go - I see something that wasn't even advertised that's a great deal. weird store, but they manage to keep me coming back.

From what I have seen, most of the SJ only deals aren't good here (San Diego). They seem to be more competitive in the SJ area than they are in anywhere else. If it shows up in one of the other ads, it is usually on sale here. The only way to know for sure, is to check your local ad or head to the store.

Went to Renton Fry's yesterday, they had all the Blu-Ray and HD stuff from the ad except the one I wanted, HD-DVD Corpse Bride (they had lots of the Blu-Ray version, didn't even have a slot for the HD-DVD version). So don't go there just for that!

Picked up Superman II BD they were out of stock of Corpse Bride but I was able to get a raincheck and still pay $13.99 when it comes back in stock. If anyone misses the movie they went for just ask for a raincheck. There is nothing in the add about "while supplies last", and if that's true then usually they give you a rain check no problem.

Fry's corporate HQ is in San Jose (store/hq are joined at the hip), so yeah, the SJ store near me tends to have some killer deals (they also seem to sell out of stuff quite freqently, but then again, everyone and their mothers in Northern Ca/the bay area flocks to the many Fry's stores around here for their bargains).
