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.

Our team is updating this list every day, but many stores are releasing their ads later than expected this year.

We're also reviewing every ad that comes out, and selecting the best deals from them. You can find those curated ad deals here: https://www.dealnews.com/f1676/Black-Friday/

Thanks for reading!
In past years, there was a "button" you could click on that would easily show all the Black Friday ads in one place. It doesn't seem like you're really interested in keeping up with this info. I see "release" dates that have gone by and there's nothing posted. Are you planning on making the "button" available and easy to find as in past years? I hope so!!!!
