With Black Friday coming up next week, major retailers are showing their hands. They’re releasing ad slicks to give shoppers an early peek at their holiday deals.
At Walmart, the leaked ad slick shows that two popular video game consoles, -- the Xbox Series X and the Playstation 5 -- will both be on sale for $499, but only for online purchases. Additional games start at $14. Walmart is also offering a bonus to shoppers who purchase a new smartphone. Consumers who purchase an iPhone or Samsung model can get up to $750 in eGift cards.
Electronics are always a big draw on Black Friday. Target will offer a 65-inch 4K set for $300. A Nintendo Switch will be available at the same price.
Black Friday shoppers will also find 40% off on select Lego building sets. There are also things for the kitchen. A KitchenAid 5-quart professional stand mixer will have a Black Friday sale price of $220. The deals begin Nov. 21.
TVs and appliances
Best Buy will have plenty of TV sets on sale at next week’s sales event. A Samsung 75-inch Class 7 Series LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV will be on sale for $850. A Keurig single-serve coffee maker will sell for $50.
There will also be discounts on appliances. Best Buy shoppers can get up to $300 in free e-gift cards with select Samsung appliance packages. For example, consumers will receive a $100 e-gift card with the purchase of a select laundry package. A select kitchen appliance package earns buyers a $200 e-gift card.
According to a Macy’s ad slick, the retailer will celebrate Black Friday with deals on apparel, appliances, and electronics. Women’s coats will sell for 60% to 70% off. Women’s boots and shoes will be marked down as much as 50%.
Macy’s is also offering some “bonus buys.” Shoppers who spend at least $25 can pick up a pair of Macy's diamond multi-halo stud earrings (1/10 ct. t.w.) in sterling silver for $30.
Costco’s ad shows Black Friday sales start online on Thanksgiving Day. Promotions include $150 off on the purchase of an HP Pavilion 15.6” 1080p touchscreen laptop with an Intel Core i7 Processor, 16GB Memory, 512GB SSD.
Shoppers will find $300 off on the purchase of an MSI Prestige 14” 1080p Laptop with an Intel Core i7 Processor, 32GB Memory, and 1TB SSD. In the apparel department, Gloria Vanderbilt stretch jeans will be marked down $7 and Voyager’s men’s hoodies will be marked down $6.
