Currently there is no indication whether these will be in-store only sales or if we'll see some pop-up online, although with the way things have been going, even if Walmart doesn't include it in their online Black Friday sale, Best Buy or Amazon will.
Some people are reporting success using coupon code 2236 during checkout to save an additional $10 off $300 / $30 off $90 / $40 off $120, but this is very much a your-mileage-may-vary situation. (The 2236 coupon is supposed to expire today, November 25)
To purchase, simply add $40 worth of goods to your cart along with the 2013 VIP Bag, then use coupon code VIP13 during checkout to receive the bag's $20 promotional price.
The Bath and Body Works 2013 VIP Bag, valued above $100, features seven "merry must haves" including Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion, Forever Midnight Body Cream, Eucalyptus Spearmint Body Wash and more!
9:27PM CST UPDATE: Looks like Best Buy has retired this sale for the day. The good news is that between their Elite early access sale yesterday and today's early access preview sale for the general public, we're very excited about what Best Buy will offer during their fully-featured online Black Friday sale on Thursday!
Also, the two Grand Theft Auto V titles and the Beats by Dre Solo Headphones are not officially part of Best Buy's "Countdown to Black Friday sale," but they should be, because they match and beat (respectively) the best Black Friday prices.
On top of the great Black Friday deals, shoppers can save an additional 15% off when they apply coupon code SHOPEARN during checkout. And just like you would in store, all orders will earn $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent!
We'll be updating throughout the night and will be sure to let you know once the Kohl's online sale begins!
To qualify for My Best Buy Elite Status, you must have spent $1500 or more at Best Buy in the past calendar year; meaning this sale is not available for everyone. However, those select few will have a very good chance of getting some of their Black Friday shopping done early because the early sale looks to include many of Best Buy's Black Friday items, including the doorbusters!
Note that you must be logged into your Best Buy account and be an Elite or Elite Plus member to receive the discount. The discount shows up once you add the item to your cart (that is, you will not see the discount on the item page).
And to clear up some confusion: Amazon is holding a week-long Black Friday sale where new items become available throughout the week. The items listed on BFAds' Amazon Black Friday page are some of the leaked sale items that will be on sale sometime during this week.
Unlike other stores, Amazon does not put their full Black Friday sale live all at once. If you haven't seen the deal you're waiting for yet, it's probably because the deal will happen sometime later this week.
And if you sign up today, you'll receive Prime benefits through December 25, which should more than cover all Black Friday and Christmas holiday shopping purchases!
Both moms and dads can make this deal even sweeter by also signing up for the Amazon Mom program which takes an additional 20% off diapers, wipes and other family essentials (which often include personal care products)!
Additionally, we'll be tracking all of the top Amazon Black Friday deals on our Black Friday Hot Deals page, which will keep you up to date on all the latest and greatest deals!
