Walmart Black Friday Ad Posted
The Walmart Black Friday ad has finally arrived and as expected, it is one of of the top Black Friday ads this year. In the Walmart ad you will find a ton of deals on electronics, video games, toys, kitchen accessories, clothing, and much more. Plus, Walmart is advertising that their doorbuster deals, which are typically sold in-store only, will also be available online this year on the Walmart website! We highly suggest that you try to get all of the Black Friday deals online on Thanksgiving day to avoid the rush at the stores. If you do head to the store, Walmart will be starting their in-store Black Friday sale at 6pm on Thanksgiving day.

Ace Hardware Black Friday Ad Posted
The 8-page Ace Hardware Black Friday ad just arrived and while it claims to have a lot of tools and other seasonal items on sale, our research found that a large majority of these items were not discounted significantly and you can even find some of these items at other retailers for the sale price listed in this ad. While we were disappointed with the ad, we did find two items that are worth shopping at Ace Hardware for. They are:
  • 300-count LED Traditional Mini Christmas Light Set for $9.99
  • Craftsman 12-gallon Wet/Dry Vac for $39.99
Ace Hardware knows their ad can't compete with the Black Friday ads from Target, Walmart, and Best Buy so they are trying to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of these deals by extending the sale hours. This year all of the Black Friday pricing will be valid between Thanksgiving morning November 23rd right up until Cyber Monday November 27th. If you need Christmas lights or a Craftsman Wet/Dry vac, we recommend stopping at your local Ace Hardware to try to get these deals.

The rest of the Dell Home ad includes online exclusive doorbuster deals that become available to purchase at different times throughout the evening on Thanksgiving day running right through Black Friday. The first deal goes live at 6:00pm Eastern time and we expect most of the items in this ad to sell out quickly.
