A few weeks ago I mentioned that Black Friday ads were being leaked.

Since that time, ad information for Target and Walmart and more have been released.  All you have to do is check out Brad’s Deals.  This great website is keeping me up-to-date when ads are posted.

Other stores whose ads have leaked include:

  • Kmart
  • Sears
  • Michaels
  • and more!
Check them out when you click here.

We’re one month away from Black  Friday, one of the biggest shopping days of the year.  In days of old, you had to wait for the newspaper on Thanksgiving Day to get the scoop on what was on sale.  But not anymore!  Nowadays, many ads are leaked online several weeks ahead of time.

Here are some of my favorite sites that keep track of Black Friday ads:

Brad’s Deals is a fantastic site that already has Black Friday ad information for Harbor Freight, Build-A-Bear, Macy’s and more.  Sign up for Black Friday email alerts or get the Brad’s Deals App for your mobile device.  And don’t forget their Facebook page, too!

BFAds is a similar resource, not just for leaked ads, but retailer information.  Like Target’s price matching policy for the season, or news of Amazon.com‘s Black Friday plans.

Deal Catcher is a great resource if you’re looking for specific items like LEGOs or Monster High toys.  You can sign up and be alerted when a deal pops up for those items!

I’ll have more tips and tricks for Black Friday and holiday shopping in the future!
