Remember those days when you’d enjoy a long, leisurely Thanksgiving dinner, pour yourself into bed at 1 a.m. after a night of laughter and wine, and then wake up at 4 a.m. to be the first on line for Black Friday Deals? This year, eat your turkey fast because if you wait until the morning of Black Friday, you’ll probably be too late:
Many stores are planning earlier-than-normal sales, with some even starting right now!
- Amazon has “Cyber Monday” and Black Friday deals every day this entire week, with special Lightning Deals posted every hour. See more information here.
- Sears will be open on Thanksgiving for pre-dinner shopping from 7 a.m. to noon with Black Friday deals like a 19-inch LCD television from RCA. See the Sears Black Friday ads here.
- Other stores will be open on Thanksgiving too, like Kmart, Old Navy, GAP and Banana Republic.
- While Walmart is waiting until 5 a.m. to start their doorbuster Black Friday deals, doors will officially open at midnight for early savings — before your turkey even digests. (See the HUGE Walmart Black Friday deals here.)
- Toys ‘R Us isn’t even waiting until midnight. Doors will open at 10 p.m., so start your dessert early this year!
- Even stores opening on Black Friday are doing so earlier than ever, like Kohl’s opening at 3 a.m. (See the Kohl’s Black Friday ads here)
- Target is also having big deals ON Thanksgiving, with an exclusive 1-day online sale. (See Target Black Friday sales here!)
- Best Buy is starting to hand out doorbuster tickets at 3 a.m., like for a $99.99 Nook eReader. (See all Best Buy Black Friday deals here)
- Macy’s is following close after, opening at 4 a.m. with doorbusters like $39.99 cashmere sweaters and $99 e-readers
So the point is this: The faster you eat Thanksgiving dinner, the bigger the savings will be. What used to be a day of relaxing and indulging is now officially a race to the checkout counter. What do you think? Will you be shopping on Thanksgiving?
