Black Friday 2016 Updates

JCPenney Black Friday Ad Early Access - November 4th!

Early Access to JCPenney Black Friday 2016 Ad Scan

JCPenney just updated their website with some exciting news: if you download the JCPenney App, you'll get early access to the JCPenney 2016 Black Friday ad scan on November 4th!

You can text "APP" to "527365" to start your download. Note that the webpage says you'll be able to "Preview the deals" and calls this a "Black Friday Sneak Peek", so there is a chance that this won't be the full ad scan. However, as always, BFAds will bring you any and all updates!

Historically the JCPenney Black Friday ad leaks around November 9th or 10th, so this would indeed be an early release for them. We frequently see the same JCPenney Black Friday doorbusters year after year; staples include $20 Women's Boots and small kitchen appliances for under $10. In addition, last year they opened at 3PM on Thanksgiving and stayed open overnight!

We're excited to see what they've got planned for this Black Friday, as well as whether they'll be closed on Thanksgiving. What do you think will happen? Stay tuned for updates and don't forget to download their app. Thanks for Visiting and Tell Your Friends!

AAFES 2016 Toy Book Posted!

AAFES 2016 Toy Book Posted!

We just posted the 319-item AAFES Toy Book listing along with the 32-page AAFES Toy Book ad scan!

Active duty and retired military, as well as dependents can shop the toy book starting today until December 24. The ad is filled with toys that have been "Military Brat Approved" meaning they've been tested by actual kids. You can find those items by looking for the seal of approval next to a product.

A few of our favorite items from the catalog are the Fisher-Price Little People Musical Dancing Palace for $19.95, which isn't the best price we've seen but the lowest Amazon has ever had it is $18.39. Christmas Books will be 30% Off the cover price, and speaking from experience the Duck & Goose books are great for kids. The Love 2 Learn Elmo is the lowest price we've seen it this year and the Finding Dory Swigglefish for $4.95 are sure to bring some smiles!

Rumor: Target to Offer Free Shipping for the Holidays?

Target Free Shipping 2016

There's an interesting rumor circling the deal-savvy corners of the Internet: Target just might be offering free shipping no minimum again this year.

According to our sources, Target will be offering free shipping no minimum from October 30th through December 25th. Considering the fact that Target has offered completely free shipping for the holidays in 2014 and in 2015, we would be surprised if they didn't have that promotion again this year.

This is great news for those of you who may be purchasing stocking stuffers or want to avoid choosing the sometimes-tedious "in-store pickup" option. However, we would like to point out that you can get free shipping -- and an automatic 5% discount -- year-round with the free Target RedCard Debit Card.

If you have a bank account and 10 minutes, you're one step away from free shipping no minimum and 5% off at Target -- for free! You might have heard of the REDcard credit card, but you can also get a REDcard debit card that links directly to your bank account. The REDcard debit card uses both chip and pin security, plus you'll get an extra month to return your items for free. To make things even sweeter you can stack the automatic 5% discount with any other coupons, Cartwheel offers, or sales that you choose to shop! When you inevitably go to "just look at" the Target Dollar Spot, the shopping spree that ensues will be little bit easier on your wallet!

If free shipping at Target interests you, we can't recommend the REDcard enough. Last year Target also offered 50% off different toys every day in-store, 10% off kids' wish lists, and tons of great Black Friday deals. We're excited to see what else is in store for us this year!

Neiman Marcus Christmas Book Posted!

Neiman Marcus Christmas Book 2016

We just posted the 893-item Neiman Marcus Christmas Book listing along with the 300-page Neiman Marcus Christmas Book ad scan!

In true Neiman Marcus fashion, the "Fantasy Gifts" in this catalog are extravagant to say the least. If you're a fan of spending as much money as possible on things you probably don't need, then this is the book for you! We like to peruse this catalog both to laugh at the sheer expense of the contents and to imagine what we'd do if we all won the lottery.

From designer sunglasses to precious gems the size of quail eggs, $50 water bottles to a $1000 backgammon set, this ad is full of the unexpected. There's even a rose gold plane available for a cool $1,500,000! Other Fantasy Gifts include a GRAMMY Awards experience for only $500,000 and matching Lilly Pulitzer Island Cars for just $65,000 apiece. Jokes aside, there are definitely some high-quality high-end gems to be found in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, provided you don't mind shelling out the cash. In addition, Neiman Marcus does frequently offer promotions for spending certain amounts; right now you can get a $100 gift card if you spend $500.

Black Friday 2016 Store Hours Update + The Return of Grey Thursday: Macy's Opening 5PM Thanksgiving

Black Friday 2016 Store Hours + The Return of Grey Thursday

As you may have already seen, we've been compiling a list of 2016 Black Friday and Thanksgiving Store Hours. Stores both big and small are included in our list so far, and we're adding more every few days. We've just added our earliest start time yet: Macy's will be opening at 5PM on Thanksgiving this year.

There is a growing number of people that want to keep Thanksgiving separate from the glorious shopping event that is Black Friday, and merchants finally seem to be listening. So far this year we know of almost 50 stores that will keep their brick-and-mortar doors closed on Thanksgiving. We are expecting more and more stores to stay closed on Thanksgiving while offering great online sales all day. That way they can stay competitive and offer their employees and customers a day to spend with family. Merchants like Menards have stayed closed on Thanksgiving since their inception, last year REI completely boycotted Black Friday, and this year stores like Staples and Gamestop have said that they have no plans to open on Turkey Day.

On the completely opposite side of the spectrum, yesterday Macy's confirmed to Fortune that they'll be opening at 5PM on Thanksgiving. In fact, some of their stores will be open for a whopping 29 hours straight, starting at 5PM on Thanksgiving Day and running til 10PM on Black Friday. Of course, this sets a precedent for their competitors. We are eager to see how the likes of Walmart, Target, Best Buy, JCPenney, and Sears respond to the bar that Macy's has set. Back in September we showed you a rumor of Kohl's store hours, with a sign being tested in Milwaukee claiming a 6PM Thanksgiving start time this year. We are expecting other anchor stores to follow in the footsteps of Macy's and Kohl's, with some stores being open as early as 6AM on Thanksgiving (like Kmart was last year).

One great thing about all of this chaos? Whether stores are closed on Thanksgiving or they stay open, customers walk away with the win. The more competition between stores, the lower their prices get. With the scuffle starting so early this year, we are expecting to see more doorbusters, better deals, and a greater incentive to shop this Black Friday.

What do you think? Are you for or against Grey Thursday? Let us know in the comments below!
