Among the most sought after Black Friday shopping ads are Walmart’s and Target’s, but there are a slew of retailers whose ads have leaked, taking some of the mystery out of the biggest shopping day of the year. Dealnews.com, one of the simpler Web sites to navigate, has a page full of leaked Black Friday ads, including:
According to CNNMoney.com, the deepest Walmart discounts will be found in high-definition TVs, laptops and Blu-ray players, as well as toys and DVDs. Items to look out for include a Sanyo 50-inch plasma 720p HDTV for $598, a Magnavox Blu-ray player for $78, a Tom Tom GPS for $59, select children’s clothing for as low as $3, a $7 reversible fleece jacket for kids and adults, and the Barbie Power Wheels Ride-On, a toy Jeep, for $88.
Additionally, the store has reduced prices as much as 50 percent on items beginning Saturday. Popular dolls, activity toys,a 26-inch Vizio HDTV, and gaming packages from Guitar Hero, Band Hero and DJ Hero with a $40 Walmart gift card.
The bigger news may be that Target will for the first holiday season match competitors’ prices as part of its Low Price Promise initiative. The price match does not apply to limited time sales, like early birds or doorbusters. However, the store will match any competitors’ printed advertisement for identical items. It must be a printed advertisement, and shopper must present the ad when making the purchase.
The price match, which Walmart will continue to have, was piloted at Target in March and rolled out nationally in July. In addition to now having the opportunity to potentially save at both stores, shoppers can also save time by shopping at one store.
