Black Friday 2014 Store Opening Times

Black Friday Store Times Target has confirmed that their Black Friday 2014 "main event" will span the 27th-29th, a nice three-ish day sale. There was a lot of controversy last year about our favorite holiday leaking into Thanksgiving, but now that the barrier has already been breached, we believe the sales will slowly creep earlier and earlier into the week.

Target's official Black Friday page is teasing us with the dates, but holding back the actual start time, and asking you to trade your email address in exchange for the "scoop about Black Friday". If they were simply starting at the same time they did last year, this ploy would be doomed to fail. We predict that Target will deliver on the pageantry, and announce that their sale starts Thanksgiving morning around 8:00 AM.

Kmart has officially announced Thanksgiving morning as their start time; as reported by Seattle NBC affiliate King5, Kmart stores will start their Black Friday 2014 event at 8:00 AM Thanksgiving, and won't close until Friday night.

Toys R Us/Babies R Us stores have posted a listing of their locations and the Black Friday 2014 sale openings for each store; the vast majority of them will be open at 5 PM on Thanksgiving Night. Click here to check your local store's sale hours.

Finally, we already have confirmation that BestBuy and Macy's are planning to repeat last year's controverial dinner-time openings on Thanksgiving day. King5 in the article linked above reports that Best Buy will be opening its doors for Black Friday at 6 PM, and ABC Affiliate WSB-TV out of Atlanta is reporting that an internal e-mail from Macy's has them opening at the same time due to "competitive" pressure.

There are still some areas of the country where these sale hours will be rendered inaccurate due to "blue laws" that restrict businesses from being open on certain holidays and/or Sundays. In states like Massachusetts, for example, these stores will still have to hold off their sale events until 12:01 AM on Black Friday morning.

We imagine this trend will continue for years to come; early openings were profitable last year, and stores will be starting their sales earlier to beat one another in the race for eager Black Friday shoppers.

Sears Canada Black Friday Ad Posted

Sears Canada Black Friday The Black Friday 2014 ads cometh! We've got our first ad scan of the season, and as expected, it's for the Black Friday in the Great White North.

As was the case with last year, the Sears Canada ad is our first leak of 2014. Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the 2nd Monday in October, which falls on October 13th. As such, the ad and sale will run from Thursday Oct. 9th through Monday Oct. 13th.

Since we cover all Black Friday sales, we have posted both the 250-item Sears Canada Black Friday sale listing as well as the 36-page Sears Canada Black Friday ad.

Similar to last year, there are no major doorbusters listed. Rather, the ad has prevalent discounts on home items such as furniture, tools, and appliances. For example, a Cuisinart 5.5-qt. Stand Mixer is 50% off, priced at $249.99 from $499.99. There is a Craftsman 72-pc. Screwdriver Set on sale for $19.99, a discount of 75%.

If the trends from last year continue, we anticipate seeing some adleaks closer to home very soon. Last year, the first American Black Friday Ad was posted within 5 days of the 2013 version of this ad, and after that it was a deluge of deals, so keep your eyes here!

We've got a selection of the best deals from our Hot Deals page in the post below - these items were chosen because BFAds staff thought they were exceptionally noteworthy.

Acer 15.6" Notebook w/ Intel Core i5-4210U (1.70GHz), 4GB Memory, 500GB HDD (E5-571-5552) - $359.99 at eBay (Newegg)

Today on eBay, Newegg is offering the Acer 15.6" Notebook w/ Intel Core i5-4210U (1.70GHz), 4GB Memory, 500GB HDD (E5-571-5552) for $359.99. The next best price we could find today was directly from Newegg for $409.99 and then $434.89 from 3BTech.

This laptop received mixed ratings on Newegg with 3 out of 5 eggs (stars) based on 15 customer reviews. After reading through the reviews, the main complaints were that it is nearly impossible for the average person or even computer geeks to upgrade due to the laptop having to be almost completely disassembled to add memory or an SSD hard drive. This really isn't a problem for people who just want an inexpensive laptop with a good processor and will just buy a new laptop when they want to upgrade.

Take note that this does not have a DVD drive and the track pad is reportedly quite sensitive so a USB mouse and USB DVD drive might be good accessories for it.

Canon Photo Paper Glossy 4x6 B1G4 Free (5-pks. = 250 Sheets) - $9.99 at Canon

Today Canon is offering Buy One Get Four Free photo paper in various sizes with glossy and matte finishes. Sizes range from 4x6 to 8.5x11 and prices start at $8.49. The only deal we've seen this year that comes close to this hot is B1G1 Free on HP photo paper from Staples on Black Friday 2013.

This paper goes well with all Canon Pixma printers and could be a great add-on or gift for anyone who recently took advantage of one of the DSLR Camera and Pixma printer combo deals we have been seeing for the last few months. The gloss and gloss II paper have both received 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon. The matte paper, however, received 3.7 out of 5 stars. Many of the lower ratings complain about how it is not traditional matte photo paper, but card stock.

Walmart & Target Toy List Leaked!

Target & Walmart Toy List Following on the heels of Toys R Us, Walmart and Target have both released their own "Hot Toy" lists. Walmart's "Chosen by Kids" was compiled by polling children, and contains the 20 most-requested toys. Target consulted with "top manufacturers" to predict which toys would be popular this Christmas. The store will also be offering boutique brand toys during the holidays.

The toy lists we've seen so far have been similar, with certain toys featured on all three lists. The Disney Frozen Snow Glow Elsa Doll, mentioned in our Toys R Us write-up, was also one of Walmart's "Chosen by Kids" toys. Target, along with many of our users, also predicted Frozen would be big this season; their list has the My Size Elsa and My Size Anna dolls.

The FurReal Friends Get Up & GoGo Puppy Pet appeared on both the Walmart and Target toy lists, though it was $49.00 at Walmart and $49.99 at Target.

We expect that these prices will drop as shopping season gets closer, so keep checking back to see the latest ad scans and Best Deals.

Xbox Live Gold Membership 12 Month Subscription Refill Code (Email Delivery) - $37.49 at BoxedDeal

BoxedDeal is offering the lowest price we have seen so far this season for an Xbox Live 12 Month Membership Refill. In the past we have seen 12 month memberships cards/codes go for $34.99, but those deals are few and far between and go out of stock extremely quickly. These particular membership refill codes will be delivered by email and must be used by 11/01/2014, but any account can have up to three years stocked up. It is also valid for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.


LG (50LB6300) 1080p 120Hz Direct Backlit LED Smart HDTV w/ WebOS - $549.99 at eBay(BuyDig)

Today on eBay, BuyDig is offering the LG (50LB6300) 50" 1080p 120Hz Direct Backlit LED Smart HDTV with WebOS for $549.99. All the other merchants we checked have this TV for $699.00.

It received 4.3 out of 5 stars with 237 customer reviews on Amazon. For a more in depth look at this TV check out these reviews from LCD TV Buying Guide and RTINGS. On the plus side the high quality of the WebOS smart TV interface makes this great for streaming Netflix or other web content and the IPS panel gives it great viewing angles. On the negative side if you have a room with a lot of lights or windows then this TV performs very poorly due to a yellow haze that appears.


  • 50" 1080p LED Backlit LCD Display
  • 120Hz
  • 3 HDMI and 3 USB Inputs
  • 44.37" x 27.95" x 9.72" (w/ stand)
