I am looking for the actual weekly flier from Bestbuy,

Does ANYONE know if there is an archive of them somewhere? I gotta think there has to be in this digital age...

 

Spent hours on the google and couldn't find them...


Looking for BestBUy Ad scan's for the following week of:

4/3/16
4/10/16


There was a blurb in there about getting $200 credit if you bought the s7 Galaxy which I did.. LONG STORY short, BB messed up and won't give me my credit.. says they dont' recall that "promo" If I had the ad I could prove otherwise..


Please advise!

thank you sir!  This may help.. 

 

 

 

HOWEVER what I am really looking for is the digital ad scan of the weekly flyer's..

 

 

Do you, or ANYONE think that is possible to find or are they gone FOREVER?  

 

note:  new ad comes out every Sunday which Bestbuy hosts on their site.

I did some searching and unfortunately could not find any archived ads except for some in march. If I find anything I will post a link.

 

Edit: Is this what you are looking for? Wayback machine cache

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20160406033700/http://deals.bestbuy.com?category=featured+deals

 

Here is the one for the week of the 10th

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20160413041221/http://deals.bestbuy.com?category=featured+deals

 

Edit Edit: Something went wrong. These are the March Ads but I did see April 3.  I think April 3 shows as the same ad as March so I guess it's a no go.

 

Here is a image snap of April 3 and April 10. They both look the same.

HOLY SMOKES that wayback machine looks like it is the key? 

 

Is there any way for that to feature either the 4/3 or 4/10 ads? 

 

We are CLOSE....

 

 

and special thank you for this, i am learning some good stuff here!

Your Welcome but it seems you still hit a brick wall if the page is blank. 

 

Edit: I think your best chance is to find a library that archives the paper including any ads but I'm doubtful.

JohnC, your post number 4 has strikeout through the URLs; I can't remember why; such also happens on a couple of other boards as well.  Perhaps an admin or mod will enter in and tell us how to avoid having strikeouts inside our posts.

I struck them out because though I thought I posted the April ads it was the March ads. I think every link after March on the Wayback machine is the same ad.

@ RolandJS at the bottom of JohnC_21's post You'll notice he made an edit 19 minutes after he originally posted. Which was likely the strike through of URL's.

He also includes this comment:

Edit Edit: Something went wrong. These are the March Ads but I did see April 3. I think April 3 shows as the same ad as March so I guess it's a no go.


He actually made two edits. But I'm specifically noting the last one. The forum software only shows the time stamp for the last edit. Regardless how many edits made to a post if more than one.

Thanks Animal!  I see now what JohnC was doing!   I only mentioned it earlier because I have seen strikeouts in a few posts in various boards that were caused by a fluke in the combination of a particular font or particular effect being used.   :)
