Black Friday Preview: Part One
There are only two weeks until Black Friday — can you believe it? I certainly can't, even as news of big sales hit my inbox. To get you in the shopping spirit, we're giving you a preview of some of the sales you can expect, plus some deals you can indulge in a little early.
Hoping to do one stop shopping this Black Friday? Walmart might be the place to do it. Walmart's Black Friday ad is out, and in it you'll find great savings on flat screen TVs, Blu-ray players, bikes and toys galore, and even a laptop for under $200! Some of the best deals I saw were:
- $149 for an XBox 360 Bundle
- PowerWheels starting at $89
- Select DVDs for $1.96
- Check out all 45 pages of this circular, and make note of which deals are available online or in stores only.
Sports Authority has released their Black Friday circular to us before it hits their own stores — take a peek! Their in store deals start at midnight and are endless; bikes for kids and teens, golf clubs for dads, plus gear for snow, working out, and almost every sport under the sun. Just some of the discounts you'll find are:
- Buy one, get one 50% off on footwear
- 50% off select exercise equipment
- 25% off select Nike apparel
Gifts from Lowe's are great for manly men, handy women, and anyone else with a knack (or need) for home repair. You can preview all of Lowe's Black Friday Deals, which will be valid November 22 through 26. There are tons of tools and gadgets that will be marked down; I spied savings of over 50% on some items. And they're even featuring a fabulous faux Christmas tree if yours is ready for an update.
Can't wait until Black Friday to start your savings? If edible gifts are on your shopping list, stop by DiBruno Brothers. Now through the end of the month they're offering 10% off and free ground shipping on orders of $40 or more with coupon code BLACKFRIDAY. Their gourmet treats like cheeses, sauces, and meats are great for hard to shop for family members or co-workers.
Toys 'R' Us
Another place to reap in the savings early is at Toys 'R' Us. Their Great Big Book has been unveiled and in it you'll find this year's coolest toys, plus big discounts on all of your favorite brands, like:
- $5 off select Little Tikes toys
- 30% off Air Swimmers
- $10 off select Avigo bikes
