A treasure trove of new Black Friday ads was released today, and The Inquisitr has the scoop on what Best Buy, Kmart, Bass Pro Shops, and other retailers are offering for the traditional beginning of the Christmas shopping season!
For better or for worse, Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving – has become a holiday unto itself in the American culture as bargain-hunters line up in the cold, hours before store opening, to get the best Christmas shopping deals. Some retailers have even extended Black Friday to Thanksgiving Day, offering deals beginning early in the evening on Turkey Day.

Without further ado, here are the latest leaked Black Friday ads, thanks to our friends at Fat Wallet.
Best Buy — The Best Buy Black Friday ad may be old news to some readers as portions of it were leaked some time ago. Today. however, 20 more pages were leaked with pages 38-59, and pages 13 and 14 now available to the public. Fat Wallet writer Brent Shelton considers the Best Buy Black Friday deals a “game-changer.”
“Starting with 15 new TV deals! Sonos speaker deals, and a low price on Sony PlayStation 4 500GB Star Wars Battlefront Bundle for $349.99! Definitely a game changer compared to most other stores’ Black Friday ads.”
Kmart — Offering doorbusters beginning at 7:00 PM Thanksgiving Day through 2:00 P.M. on Black Friday, Kmart’s Black Friday ad promises deep discounts on common household items, toys, and clothes, rather than big-ticket items like HDTVs, appliances, and electronics.
Toys, especially, are deeply discounted for Black Friday, with some items, including Disney princess dolls and a quad-copter video drone, offered at up to 50 percent off. Youth mini dirt bikes are now listed for $229.99, and certain models of BMX and Schwinn bicycles are as low as $129.99.
Dick’s Sporting Goods — Dick’s Sporting Goods offers doorbusters on Thanksgiving Day beginning at 6:00 P.M. until 2:00 A.M. on Black Friday. The sale will resume at 5:00 A.M. on Black Friday. Other deals in Dick’s Sporting Goods’ Black Friday ad include FitBits for as low as $89.98, 25 percent off select Nike apparel (including shoes, undergarments, and outerwear), and deep discounts on hunting weapons.
hhgregg — In addition to Black Friday deals, hhgregg offers doorbusters beginning Thanksgiving Day at 4:00 P.M. Some of the better deals include a 65-inch, 4K curved Samsung HDTV for $1498, FitBits as low as $49.99, and up to $100 off laptops.
Bass Pro Shops — Bucking the Thanksgiving Day doorbusters trend, Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday deals are limited to six hours only from 5:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. on Friday. As a sporting goods retailer, Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday offerings tend toward deep discounts on clothing, ammunition, and weapons.
Other Retailers — Today’s Black Friday leaks are just the latest in an ongoing stream of leaked ads. Other retailers’ Black Friday ads have been covered in previous Inquisitr reports. WalMart, Sears, Home Depot, and Target were some of the retailers covered in the Inquisitr articles.
Black Friday Strategy — Now that you know what some of your favorite retailers are offering on Black Friday, it’s important to have a strategy, according to Deal News writer, Louis Ramirez. The first order of business, says Ramirez, is to compare ads and look for the best deals. Several websites will compare ads for you to help sort out the better deals from the duds.
Equally important, says Ramirez, is to have a game plan.
“Make sure the deals you want will be available when you plan to shop; some stores will release sales at different times throughout the week and even the weekend.”
The Inquisitr will continue to offer more leaked Black Friday sales ads as they become available.
