    Does anyone know of any way to get store ads mailed to your house? I work at walmart and they match the prices of things listed in other store's ads, including things that are just on sale and this includes video games. I don't have a Best Buy, a Toys R Us or Target anywhere near me, so I can't go shopping there whenever I want but they usually have good sales. I just want a way to get their ads so I can start getting better prices at walmart.

    Anyone know of any way I can get on any of these stores mailing lists?

    Best way I can think of would actually be to buy a Sunday newspaper. I know the couple of local papers are full of store flyers for their weekly sales.

    Yeah just get the news paper. The local daily paper here hands out all the flyers on Thursday and Friday. And I deliver the flyers in a seperate pack on Wednesday and Friday.

    Yeah, the Sunday paper is loaded with ads. It'll cost like $6 a month or less for a Sunday only subscription. You can't go wrong.

    Sunday newspapers are your best bet. I notice many stores also put the weekly ad online. So if your Walmart will honor something you printed out, you might want to go that route. You might also be able to check online then buy a sunday paper if you see any deal you want.

    A note though. Some stores won't price match if the store isn't local.

    Also, I've never seen a store that will take print outs as acceptable ads. Whose to say people with crazy photoshop skills don't make fake ads to scam the stores.

    ^^^True, also some WM's cashiers and/or Customer Service keep the weekly ads of other stores on hand...I've even seen them hanging from the registers..so if you tell them Kmart has an item for sale, they may be able to look it up for you..otherwise, the best offense is to go in with the Sunday ad in hand. You could also subscribe to a larger city's paper nearby..as your town doesn't have a TRU, Target, etc. and they should honor those store ads if they're within easy driving distance, say 50 miles or so. Good luck.
