Fry's Ads 5/14-20 (Updated Daily): Anniversary Sale - $8 Blu-Rays

Here's the entertainment software listings from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Chicago (IL), Los Angeles/Orange County (LA), Las Vegas (LV) and San Jose/Silicon Valley (SJ) 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, Houston, Sacramento, San Diego, AZ, GA, IN, OR, Seattle), 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.

Re: Fry's Ads 5/14-20 (Updated Daily): Anniversary Sale - $8 Blu-Rays

Most of the $7.99 movies I wanted were out of stock in Las Vegas. They are giving out rain checks. They do have copies of the ad in store. I was able to go to Best Buy to price match Fry's for most of what I wanted.
At Frys I got
A Few Good Men
Jerry Maguire

Price matched at Best Buy's:
300
Apollo 13
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Public Enemies
Serenity
Watchmen: Director's Cut

Wanted but not available at Frys or Best Buy
Groundhog Day
Love Actually

The last 2 oddly are available at Frys.com for in store pick up only. It says they are available at the Las Vegas store. However I was at the store today and there is a sign where the sale price sticker is saying they are out of stock and a rain check is available. I guess they will be getting more stock before the sale is over.

Re: Fry's Ads 5/14-20 (Updated Daily): Anniversary Sale - $8 Blu-Rays

So, today being Tuesday, will I find these on sale at Fry's? The OP indicates sale is Friday to Monday and Wednesday. Is the schedule really that odd?

No, the ads are published on those days in most areas. The sales prices are valid for the dates listed in the title (thru Thursday).
