Beware of the Black Friday Hype

There are a ton of great deals to be had on Black Friday. However, as I mentioned in my Black Friday Shopping Tips post (#6), be sure the deals you snag are actually great deals. Here is one example of a TV that may not be the best deal you can get…

Toshiba 32″ LCD TV $249.99 (reg. $279.99)
*At only $30 off, this is only a 12% discount. There are much better TV deals you can snag on Black Friday, and during other Christmas sales as well.

Head on over here to check out the Kmart ad scan and all the other deals available.

    Will Walmart price match buy one get one 50%off?

  • Greg says:

    What a shame…people can’t even spend time with their families on thanksgiving…all stores are now open on thanksgiving. Sad

    • Victoria says:

      I agree, it’s just not right that they are forced to work. Instead of being able to enjoy the holiday, they will be dealing with rude customers (as I’m sure there will be plenty on a day like this).

      • Destinee says:

        Kmart is actually the one store that has been open on Thanksgiving for many years! But I agree…I refuse to shop on Thanksgiving…dont care how good the sale is!!

        • Elizabeth says:

          agreed. In 30 years will you look back and be glad you spent the holiday with your family, or be glad you got some gadget at a good deal? There’s always more stuff, always another deal. You can never get that family time back.

        • Marion says:

          Agree I enjoy being with my family sharing some good food. The stores will wait until Friday.

    • Eve says:

      Kmart has been open on thanksgiving for years. Nothing new.

      • Tilla Ham says:

        i personally love stores that are open all the time, as a retail worker and shopper! i hate when i need batteries or milk and there is no where to go….years ago i was out of gas on a holiday and all teh gas stations were closed, poor planning on my part!

    • Kristin says:

      Can I just say to everyone who is saying those “poor people” who have to work on thanksgiving. I know several people who are happy to have a job. I use to work retail and would volunteer to work holidays for holiday pay. I was a single mom who needed that money. Also don’t forget those people who work gas stations, coffe shops, restaurants, etc. and most places ask for volunteers before they just schedule people to work holidays. Ok now I feel better putting this out there. I like shopping Black Friday, and I will be shopping Thursday at 8pm. As our thanksgiving dinner is at 2pm. So nothing but open time while my kids and husband sleep.

      • Victoria says:

        True there are many people who don’t mind to work during the holidays, but lets not discredit those who have to. They should be allowed to enjoy a day with their family just like everyone else who can, it has nothing to do with being happy having a job or not.

      • Ketsy says:

        Well said Kristin. I used to volunteer for holidays as well as Sundays for better pay. At least these people have jobs unlike many others. I would love for my husband to me off every weekend, every afternoon, every holiday, every school activity day, graduations, anniversaries… etc. Unfortunately we are in the working class and working pays for the quality time we do share together. Also, my parents are old school and they say family should gather for more than holidays and gifts should be given randomly as well rather than for just designated holidays. Food for thought!

      • Heather says:

        I’m a single mom of 2, and I need to score the deals. I plan to shop on Thanksgiving at 5am (kiddos will be sleeping) and I will put the Turkey in the oven before leaving! After bedtime, I plan to go back out and shop as well. Some of us need the deals, even if it calls for a restless couple of days! Without the great deals, I wouldn’t be able to afford as great of a Christmas for those I love!

    • Erica says:

      Don’t forget about doctors, nurses, police, fire fighters, paramedics, etc. These people all have to work on holidays too (and they really do HAVE to work…) My dad often had to work on holidays (I remember one Christmas in particular) because he was a microbiologist and ran all of the tests in the lab for doctors and the emergency room. There are lots of people who have to work on holidays and while I don’t think it’s always fair that people end up having to work on holidays instead of being home with their families, they are often compensated with special holiday pay.

  • Sean B. says:

    I do not even want to think about stores starting sales ON Thanksgiving day. Ugh!

  • Kandi V says:

    Normally they will only match actual prices, not percents off, so I would assume it will be the same on black friday.

  • Joni says:

    Just to be sure, I can get online during the hours you listed and do the same shopping without having to leave my house? (please say yes!)

  • ashley says:

    What’s up with all these sales at different times? Its kind of lame lol

  • Jennifer M says:

    … I wonder if free shipping with the max thing. I just signed up to get my shoes shipped free last night + dora slippers for LO :) That would be awesome. I can certainly be on the computer at that time … not so much at Kmart.

  • Em says:

    I don’t do Black “Friday” sales because its not worth dealing with the morons, but remember, not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving. There is actually a rather large portion of the US that doesn’t. We don’t celebrate Christmas either. I don’t mind working either holiday, and volunteer for them every year

    • Tilla Ham says:

      that’s great of you to volunteer for them since you don’t celebrate, I hope they in turn give you off the days when you do celebrate something special

  • Ib says:

    There is or was a coupon for $2/1 barbie fashionista doll. I printed through

  • St says:

    on the thomas the train deal, would that be available online for the same price? what about the tvs?

  • shannon says:

    Collin, so cool of you to give us the “Beware of the Black Friday Hype” warnings in your posts. Love it and very helpful!

  • Allison says:

    Do they offer free shipping if you shop online?

  • Eka says:

    What do they mean by the “Layaway” lockin your Black Friday price. Can I place an article on layaway before the blackfriday deals?

  • Amie says:

    If you live in New England it’s always a good idea to call and check to see what time your local stores are opening. Because of the laws, stores are not allowed to have employees punched in on a holiday. Our local Walmart has signs up stating that they will not be opening until 5 am on Friday. I have not checked with Kmart yet. I don’t know what that means as far as them splitting up the sales, I’m thinking they will just have everything available at that time which I’m sure is going to make it crazy and nuts and worth trying to get the things I want online and not have to fight the crowds.

  • ann says:

    I don’t think I’ll ever do business with Kmart again. I bought something last week with free points Collin posted about and signed up for the max free shipping. All of my I info was correct but the word “road” didn’t print on their label, even though it was correct in my email confirmation. Kmart blamed it on UPS. UPS was going to correct it and redeliver and apparently it is Kmart/ Sears policy not to do this and Kmart required UPS to send package back. I spent several hours on the phone with Sears/Kmart and they won’t resend the package. They say I have to place order again and they won’t honor my free points. They blame UPS and when I pointed out I’m innocent in all of this, my info was right, I was told it’s too bad and there’s nothing they can do. That’s pretty poor customer service. She said UPS does it all the time, and I told her that they should work with the vendor instead of punish the customer. She said I’m welcome to place my order again, but again, no free points.

  • michelle says:

    I hope I’m not duplicating a question, but I didn’t see it anywhere. If I order merchandise from online can I pick it up at the store at a later date, say Saturday? I have some TVs that I’d like to get but I’m thinking it will be cheaper to pick them up in store versus shipping charges, and I’d rather not have to pick up on Friday when it will be crazy. BTw..Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

  • Jessica says:

    Does anyone know if you will be able to put items on layaway online? I plan on shopping Thursday morning when the sale begins at 6:00am and putting my items on layaway but then I saw that you could shop online and get the same deals. Just wondering if you could shop online and put your items on layaway.

  • Jen says:

    I just got the Kmart Flier, and I don’t see the La La Loopsi deal in the actual flier. I also checked the online flier and don’t see it there either. Where did you see this deal? I’d like to price match it at Walmart since I can’t be in 2 places at once, but I can’t do that without the flier ad.

  • love2deal says:

    The only way to get the doorbuster prices is to enter your Shop Rewards Kmart number.

  • Michael Reynolds says:

    Doorbusters not on line

  • Amy R says:

    You can get the door busters online too? From what I have read, you have to enter your sywr # to get the pricing? Also, can I opt to ship to the store to save on shipping?
