The first four pages of the ad are for the Cabela's 5-hour Black Friday door-buster sale starting at 5am, while the remaining 24 pages are for the Friday through Wednesday (Nov 28) extended weekend sale.
Online shoppers, however, can get an early start on things as Cabela's online Black Friday sale will be live on Cabelas.com on Thanksgiving Day.
In addition to all the deals, Cabela's will be giving away over $6400 in products to the first 600 people in line by 5am. Prizes include a Browning A-Bolt Medallion 300 WSM Rifle and a Masterbuilt 30-in Electric Smoker.
Between the Cabela's and Gander Mountain ads, there are seemingly enough guns on sale to supply a small army. All I know is that when I woke up, I had no plans on purchasing a crossbow; now I'm seriously reconsidering.
Staples' Black Friday sale starts at 5am with the door-busters (all items on the first two pages) expiring at noon. Unfortunately, the door-buster deals are claimed to be "in-store only" and many require Staples "easy-rebates."
Claiming that the "Thanksgiving Sales Continue," Macy's has 52 pages of brand-new sale items valid from Friday, November 23 through Tuesday, November 27. This is apparently in addition to the previously posted Macy's Black Friday sale which runs Friday and Saturday.
Despite it being called a Black Friday ad, Family Dollar has no Black Friday exclusive sales. Rather, the first and last two pages of the ad are Thanksgiving Day only from 8am to 5pm, with the middle pages containing sale items valid Thanksgiving Day through Saturday, November 24.
Old Navy's Black Friday sale begins at midnight during which they'll have three rounds of doorbusters: one from midnight - 4am, another from 4am - 8am, and a final one from 8am - noon. And for those that can't make it on Friday, Old Navy will have one last set of doorbusters valid all day Saturday.
But the biggest draw to the Old Navy sale will be the "extremely limited amount" of shoppers who will receive a free copy of New Super Mario Bros. U (for the Nintendo Wii U) with a $40 purchase. Considering the $60 retail value of the video-game, that's a pretty lucrative offer.
Bealls, a department store primarily located in the South, will be starting their Black Friday sale at midnight this year, with early-bird prices lasting until 1pm. Bealls will then continue those sales through Saturday, albeit at slightly higher prices.
Also worth noting is that the first 100 customers in line at every Bealls location will receive a scratch-off card good for a chance to win a 16GB WiFi tablet, a $100 gift-card or $5 in Bealls Bucks.
The Bealls advertisement was sent directly to us by Bealls' marketing department, and we always like to give positive press to retailers who realize the benefit of having their ad up early on BFAds, so thank you Bealls for the submission!
Modell's is a sporting goods chain with 140 stores located primarily in the northeastern states. Most locations will start their Black Friday sale at midnight with the deals lasting both in-store and online until 3pm.
