Black Friday Deals Begin Early—On Thanksgiving Day

Sears, Target, Best Buy, and jcp are included in turkey day sales. Check out the deals here.

If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year—starting Thanksgiving Day.

Sears has specials on jewelry, electronics, cameras and more that start at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, and go all night long (where prohibited by law). There's a 64-page catalog viewable online.

JCPenney (now calling itself jcp) starts its sale at 6 a.m. on Friday. It is giving away little buttons that may be worth a free gift. Pick up a button from a sales associate, find a seven-digit promotional code on the back, enter it at jcp.com/christmas to find out if you've won. Gifts include trips, jewelry, cookware, and more.

Kohl's is calling its sale Operation: Black Friday with 500 early bird specials starting at midnight Thanksgiving Day.

Last week, Walmart announced that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 22 and offer holiday doorbusters while supplies last. These include deals on TVs, iPads, an electric scooter for $79 and a steam mop for $39.

But it's not alone. Target and Best Buy are also planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.

Target's deals begin an hour later, at 9 p.m. According to an ad leaked online, the best deals will be for a Nook, TVs, a Nikon camera and an XBOX 360 Kinect bundle.

At Best Buy, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and a Samsung laptop bundle.

Walmart will offer its biggest deals from 10-11 p.m. Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items at low prices—an iPad, a TV and a Blu-Ray player—and if the store runs out, you can still buy them but must register for them online by midnight and they'll be delivered to your local store.

For other sales check out TheBlackFriday.com or BlackFriday.com

For the early morning traditionalists, several stores open at 4 a.m. with special sales. If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages. 

Want to avoid the holiday shopping mega-crowds altogether? Look for Cyber Monday deals on Nov. 26 or visit your local Mom 'n Pop retailers on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24.

Wow! The holiday shopping season starts on Thanksgiving Day this year! I wonder if it'll bring more revenue for the stores. Wouldn't people prefer having a house party over going shopping on Thanksgiving?
