Black Friday 2013: Check Out Deals From Walmart, Target and Best Buy

    November 14, 2013

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.

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.
