We're a week into October and now seems like just as good a time as ever to officially kick things off for the Black Friday 2012 season!
As of yet, no Black Friday ads have been released but we expect the first to show up sometime either this week or next (for reference, the first 2011 ad was released on October 11).
In the interim, we will soon be announcing details regarding our 2012 BFAds t-shirts, releasing our first round of Black Friday buying guides and continuing our daily coverage of hot deals - which are now located on our Hot Deals page.
Stay tuned for more updates and surprises as we get closer to November.
Black Friday has come and gone and we hope everyone had a successful Black Friday shopping experience and a happy Thanksgiving Holiday! I'd like to personally thank every one of our visitors for helping make us the largest and most popular Black Friday website.
We would also like to thank everyone who emailed us with a suggestion or comment, those who submitted advertisements, members of the media who featured our site, retailers who directly submitted their advertisements or released their ads early, and retailers who did not bother us when their advertisement was leaked.
A special thanks to everyone who purchased and wore a BFAds' t-shirt this year. Through your support, we raised over $12,500 in proceeds to be donated across the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, Toys for Tots and Fisher House Foundation charities.
It still amazes me that nine years ago, the only people who knew about the site were friends and family. We've solely grown through word-of-mouth advertising and have gotten to the point where BFAds is now one of the Top 120 visited sites in the United States for the month of November. We only have our loyal visitors to thank for our continued success in covering Black Friday sales.
We received a lot of feedback and recommendations that we will be implementing in our 2012 site. Additionally, we will be covering weekly sales and daily hot deals throughout December for the Christmas shopping season.
It's truly been a pleasure to get to talk to the many thousands of you over the past two months; we hope everyone enjoyed the site and we look forward to seeing all of you again in 2012!
With most retailer's Black Friday weekend sales passed, they have started to push their Cyber Monday sales live, some a full day early! Despite some retailers' branding of the sale as "Cyber Week," Cyber Monday marks the last "official" sale day of the Thanksgiving Weekend and probably the best chance of getting the lowest priced products.
All items are while supplies last, so the hot items will certainly go fast.
All Cyber Monday Sales Now Available!
Some items (from stores who started their sales on Sunday) have already sold out, so be sure to act fast if you see an item you're interested in!
In addition to the Cyber Monday sales, we'll also be covering the upcoming weekly sales and daily hot deals all the way through Christmas!
It's now officially Black Friday and if you chose to shop online this year, you've got over 75 online Black Friday sales to choose from! All available online Black Friday sales are listed below (be sure to scroll down because it's a LONG list):
Many Sales Continuing through the Weekend
With 84 different sales to choose from, you have quite a few options if you're shopping online this Black Friday. Many of the sales will be lasting all-day Friday, some even through Saturday; so if you missed out on a couple deals in-store, there is a chance you can find them later in the day online. And then we've got another online sale extravaganza on Cyber Monday!
Thanks for Visiting and Best of Luck with your Black Friday Shopping!
As the online Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day sales start to roll out, there's going to be an incredible amount of deals going on. To complement our Hot Deals page, we're compiling a list of some of our favorite deals across all sales.
This list will be updated throughout the day as more sales go live and items go in and out of stock.
This is just a small collection of some of the deals available right now! For the stores that are currently having their Thanksgiving Day sales, they will all start to switch over to their Black Friday sales starting Thanksgiving Night/Black Friday morning: our Black Friday sales timeline has details on all existing and upcoming sales!
We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and is able to get a little bit of their Black Friday shopping done online today! Be sure to bookmark this link and visit often for all the latest online Black Friday sales news!
Amazon currently has hundreds of items on sale available right now and will continue to add more throughout Friday! As with recent years, we've also spotted Amazon matching other retailers' Black Friday prices for many items.
Some of the still in-stock hot deals we found were:
Unfortunately, Dell let one of their top doorbusters, a Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop for $299.99, leak before the start of their online Black Friday sale; so it is now out of stock at its $300 price and is now $349.99.
