We are still scouting out the early adscans for you, and we've got several new ones live on the Adscans page:
Stein Mart's Black Friday ad wasn't particularly noteworthy, but the store will be offering scratch-off tickets worth either $10, $20, $50 or $100 off during their Black Friday sale - which starts at 5PM Thanksgiving Day. Reed's Black Friday sale will also start on Thanksgiving Day, and offer a selection of mostly white gold wedding bands and diamond studs. Costco's traditional pre-Black Friday sale starts November 21st, and offers an HP TouchSmart Laptop with touchscreen and Intel Core i3 processor for $474.99.
We now have 15 Black Friday ads live on the site, and of course we're always on the lookout for the crowd favorites as well. We're keeping our Store Hours Post updated with opening times as we confirm them, and you can always subscribe to our Black Friday updates to get an email whenever breaking Black Friday news or adscans go live. Stay tuned for more big adscans!
Express has released a glance into their Black Friday 2014 plans! While no specific items are mentioned, there will be major discounts given on large orders throughout November and December. You can view the entire Express 2014 Holiday Savings Passbook on their website.
If you plan on shopping Express this holiday season, you should sign up for a free ExpressNext rewards membership. Aside from earning points towards rewards with each purchase, you'll also receive an exclusive offer if you log in to your account between November 12th and November 16th.
Notice the two days that are missing from their holiday sale previews? We anticipate that Express has something special hidden up their stylish sleeves planned for Black Friday weekend. In 2013, they took 50% off everything on their website! As for their Black Friday hours, they haven't yet released an opening time for Black Friday 2014. However, they opened at 10PM on Thanksgiving last year.
Today's giveaway ends at 11:59:59PM CST. You only need to enter once and you will be eligible for every daily giveaway. Limit 1 entry per person. You can find all information about the contest along with the daily prize schedule and past winners on our November Holiday Giveaway Contest page.
As a complement to the November Giveaway Contest, we will also be running contests through our Facebook page and Twitter page so be sure to like and follow both for additional chances to win!

For shoppers who want to get a jump-start on their Christmas lists, this coupon can be used on items from Macy's Holiday Gift Guide. The guide includes suggestions for "Her" and "Him", as well as favorite gifts from celebrity-helmed brands and Ralph Lauren. You can also use the "Shop by Recipient" feature to find gifts appropriate for co-workers, party hosts and fitness lovers (among others).
We already knew that Sears was planning to be open on Thanksgiving thanks to the leaked furniture doorbuster ad, but this press release officially confirmed it! Sears will be open at 6PM on Thanksgiving and will remain open until closing time on Friday night.
Our first major ad leak of the year does not disappoint. Here are some of the great deals that caught our eye:
Starting at 5:59PM CST on Thanksgiving Day, Dell will be offering doorbusters in limited quantities with staggered start times through Friday. Select doorbusters are guaranteed to be in stock from Friday at 7AM CST to 9PM CST. Dell is also offering extended holiday returns, with free return shipping on most purchases made through December 25th.
Target is offering 50% off a different toy every day via their free Cartwheel coupon app! This promotion started on November 1st and will run until Christmas Eve. So far, the featured 50% off toys have included Pound Puppies, the Nerf Zombie Strike Sledgefire Blaster, and Planes Fire & Rescue Vehicles. Cartwheel offers can be combined with in-store and manufacturer coupons, meaning that if you received the Target Toy Catalog in the mail, you can stack a Cartwheel offer with the 25% off a toy department item coupon. You can use your Target REDcard for even more savings.
There are additional toy discounts available that range from 10% to 30% off. These offers span across several popular toy categories and brands. Expiration dates vary, so if you see something especially eye-catching, make sure you get it while it lasts! The entire "Hot Gifts for Cool Kids" collection can be viewed in-app or online.
Target Cartwheel is available to download on Google Play and via the Apple App Store. If you don't have a smartphone, fear not - you can use the website! Cartwheel showcases frequently-changing offers for items that are available in-store. You can view the products online or in the app and add them to your "cart". Once you have chosen your offers, you can either show your mobile barcode at checkout or print off a barcode from home. The offers will automatically be applied to your purchase when you check out in-store. Offers vary in percentage and cover almost all departments.
If you have little ones to shop for this holiday season, you may also be interested in Target's Wish List app. It serves as a fun game that helps kids with building their wish lists. As an added bonus, the list doubles as an easy way for their family to keep track of potential gifts. Registries are searchable by either the child's or the parent's name, and purchases can be made right from the app. The coolest aspect of the Wish List app is the one-time use 10% off coupon that comes with the download. It takes 10% off a Target Wish List purchase in-store or online. The coupon will apply to all of the qualifying items in the transaction, but it can only be used once, so make it count!
Sears Holdings Corporation has announced that both Sears and Kmart stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day for Black Friday 2014 sales.
Holiday hours for Kmart stores will begin at 6AM, the earliest opening yet. They will remain open until close of business on Friday, November 28 - giving shoppers a full 42 hours to get those gift lists crossed off. Sears stores will open 12 hours later, at 6PM.
More than two weeks before Black Friday begins, Sears will be hosting a "Family & Friends" event with a selection of Black Friday deals to include apparel, appliances, tools, and footwear. The event will stack Black Friday pricing with the additional 5% - 15% Sears Family & Friends discount.
