Now that Wal-Mart has come I'm waiting on Ulta, Five Below, Michaels, and Yankee Candle.

We've received about one-third of the ads so far. Still many more are expected in the next two weeks.

38 ads from 2017 seen in 2018.
9 new ads seen in 2018 not seen in 2017.
83 ads from 2017 still missing in 2018.

I came up with a timeline of ad releases this year. (The ads named "store.old1" are ones where BFAds later released an updated ad after releasing the first version of the ad.)

Edit: added: The dates are when I downloaded the ad. It may be that there are some ads that got officially released by BFAds on a slightly different day, compared to when I downloaded them.

There are also other stores that were seen in previous years but were missing in 2017, like MCX Marine Corps Exchange. Hopefully, we'll see them again this year. Plus, Home Depot which is an ad that usually gets posted and then removed from BFAds.

Will we see an ad from Honey Do this year?

The Menards ad needs to hurry up and so does the ad from the place that sounds like Home Depot. :lol:
