With Black Friday just two weeks away, retailers are beginning to release their ads, so let the chaotic holiday shopping preparation begin! Whether you’re shopping for young kids, teenagers or yourself, there are a lot of great deals to be had during the Black Friday 2013 weekend.

Read below for a breakdown of the Black Friday deals at some major stores. If you have any Black Friday shopping tips, whether it has to do with deals or contending with the crowds, feel free to post them in the comments section below.


Once again, Walmart’s Black Friday ad is a little confusing. They have three different windows of shopping times that you can get different deals in, with the first “event” starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. This supposedly helps limit the chaos from previous years where you had people trampling each other to get into the store for certain items.

Best deals: Vizio 60-inch Smart HDTV for $688 (Event 1); iPad Mini 16 GB for $299, plus you get a $100 Walmart gift card (Event 1); Backyard Grill with four burners for $99 (Event 1); Monster Trax ATV 12-Volt Battery-Powered for $99 (Event 1); Beats by Dre headphones for $114.95 (Event 2); RCA 7-inch tablet for $49 (Event 2); iPhone 5C for $45, plus you get a $75 Walmart gift card (Event 3); Canon Powershot digital camera, 16 MP and 16x zoom for $79 (Event 3).


Unlike Walmart, Target is giving people a small window to let their Thanksgiving meals settle before shopping. A lot of their doorbusters don’t quite compare to Walmart’s, but there are a lot of good deals, especially if you’re shopping for kids.

Best Buy

It probably goes without saying that Best Buy is the best place to start out at if electronics make up the bulk of your shopping list. If you’re looking for an iPad 2, Best Buy is without a doubt the place you want to show up to early.

    I think Thanksgiving Day should be reserved for being thankful. Not for trying to find that bargain. But the way the public views things now days, it’s all about, buy buy buy, and get get get, except for the few, that actually give. And to those, I praise for remembering the good that was the norm, but sadly now, is the exception to the rule.

    Lots of people saying to not shopthanksgiving so retail workers can stay home with their families… Ok, so what about nurses, police officers, correctional officers, etc. Whether people shop or not, they have to work. So yes, I’ll be in line, enjoying the savings, after I get off work, and enjoy my thanksgiving meal.

    Most box stores Walmart,Meijer etc. only close on one day out of the year ( Christmas Day ) So the employees will be working black friday or no black friday so might as well shop for bargains
