Black Friday freebies? Really? Yes, there are tons of them out there, but you have to know where and when to get them! While many consumers will be looking for the best deals online and in department stores across the country, there are also ways shoppers can cash in on several freebies along the way.
According to The Black Friday.com, many stores are spicing up the deals by giving away freebies to entice shoppers to head to their stores, and several major businesses have jumped on board. From CVS and Bon-Ton to Victoria Secrets, Home Depot, and JCPenney, shoppers can cash in on a little extra incentive this holiday season.
Here is a look at some great deals various stores will be offering on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Bon-Ton will give the first 200 in-store shoppers on Thanksgiving a free gift card valued between $5 and $500. How can you beat that? To sweeten the pot, Bon-Ton guarantees to give away one $500 gift card at each store. So, if you are planning on heading to a local Bon-Ton outlet, the doors open at 5 p.m. local time.
Bealls is also giving away freebies, but this one will come in the form of an instant in-store drawing.
According to Deals.com, the first 75 people in line at Bealls on Thanksgiving Day will be entered into their “Giftspiration” drawing, and the three luckiest recipients will get a $100, $75, or $50 gift card. The remaining 72 customers will receive a $10 gift card. Stores are scheduled to open at noon.
JCPenney will also be getting into the act when it comes to the Black Friday freebies and deals. The long-time retail giant will be offering coupons for $10 off orders over $10, or $100 off $100 orders. How can you beat that? In other words, if you spend $10, you will get $10 in freebies, and the same goes for $100. In fact, JCPenney will match your spending up to $500. This might be the best deal in town! Shoppers will have up to Christmas Eve to make use of all of the cost-cutting coupons you earn.
CVS shoppers have more than a handful of options to cash in this holiday season. Several reward offers will be up for grabs this Black Friday, including cash rewards on popular items that include Green Giant Vegetables, Hershey’s Mars Chocolate, Mentos Mints, and Air Heads candy products along with Stylessentials Leggings and CVS Blade Torq3 Kits – and that is just to name a few.
Other Black Friday freebies and deals include Victoria’s Secret, Fred Meyer stores, Belk, and Shopko.
Victoria’s Secret will be giving away a free tote bag on Thanksgiving Day. If you are an Angel Card holder, you can get your tote bag a day early on Nov. 23.
If you are heading to a Fred Meyer store, you will not only save on hundreds of deals, but you can grab up a few goodies along the way for free. Shoppers will receive free coffee, juice, and donuts this Friday. Stores will open at 5 a.m.
Belk department stores will give the first 200 in-store customers this Thursday and Friday a free gift card valued from $5 to $1,000. Doors open at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving and 5 a.m. on Black Friday.
Shopko stores will give the first 100 shoppers a free $10 gift card and a $500 Holiday Bonus Coupon Book. Both are valid from November 27 forward. Doors open at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
If you don’t see a department store or location promoting special holiday deals in your town, be sure to ask someone when you are there. Just because a small business or local town favorite isn’t advertising as much as the other stores, that doesn’t mean they aren’t running specials!
