Black Friday is just a few days away, deal seekers, but you need to start planning now! We've put together a list of the biggest stores below and the dates you can expect their Black Friday ads to be announced in 2019.
A note on "leaked" Black Friday ads: Leaks aren't really leaks. Stores typically share their ads and flyers with media outlets before they reveal all their Black Friday deals on their own websites (and in the newspaper). As such, we based our ad predictions on the leak dates from 2018. However, the ad drop dates for some stores can vary widely from year to year.
Don't Expect Apple Black Friday Ads
Don't bother searching your newspaper circular for an Apple Black Friday Ad. Apple is notorious for not hosting a big Black Friday sale. Because of this, we don't expect the company to release any kind of ad in 2019. If a sale pops up this year, it'll likely be similar to the 4-day shopping event Apple hosted last year, when it bundled various gift card deals with select purchases.
When Will the Black Friday Ads Be Announced in 2019?
Some retailers are hitting the snooze button in 2019! Every store with "Very soon" in the Expected Release Date column had dropped their Black Friday ads by this time in 2018. We expect these Black Friday deals to be announced any day now.
|Store||Expected Release Date|
|Ace Hardware||Very soon|
|Bed Bath & Beyond||Out now!|
|Best Buy||Out now!|
|Dell Home||Out now!|
|Dell Small Business||Out now!|
|Dick's Sporting Goods||Very soon|

|Harbor Freight Tools||Very soon|
