After a big dinner on Thanksgiving, the last thing you may want to do on Black Friday is roll out of bed early for in-store shopping. But being one of the first shoppers through the doors can pay off in multiple ways. For one, you can have better luck nabbing inventory before it sells out, and you could also score notable freebies that make Black Friday deals even better.

Read on to see the freebies retailers are offering on Black Friday 2018 (that's today!). And keep checking back! We'll update this page with more Black Friday freebies as we learn about them.

Be Prepared to Stand in Line

Many freebie deals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. This means you'll have to head to the stores early. And as you'll see, some of the freebies only apply to the first 100 or so customers, so you'll need to be in line before others arrive to ensure you can grab these items.
