Pulling an All-Nighter: A Sample Black Friday Shopping Schedule

Posted on 11/25/2013

As you've probably heard by now Black Friday seems to be starting early this year with many stores opening up on Thanksgiving Day. But let's say that you've decided to continue your tradition of avoiding stores on Thanksgiving and spend the day instead eating, socializing and making memories with loved ones. Here's a fool-proof plan to score plenty of deals on Black Friday, but we warn you-- it still requires shoppers to trade some sleep for savings.

Midnight: Best Buy
Start the day at Best Buy where stores open at midnight for another wave of Black Friday deals. Keep in mind you can preview the deals at BestBuy.com/mystery starting at 10pm on Thanksgiving.

1am: Kohl's
Kohl's Black Friday deals start at 8pm Thursday, but run until 1pm Friday. You'll earn $15 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend. Since there are more than 500 doorbuster deals there will certainly be some left for you to snap up.

4am: JCPenney
It's become a tradition for JCPenney shoppers to receive a free gift for their patience. This year JCP is handing out free Mickey snow globes to customers starting at 4am Friday. Be sure to take this printable coupon with you to stave an additional 15 percent on apparel, shoes, accessories and home.

7am: Sam's Club
If you've got a Sam's Club membership you'll want to put it to use on Black Friday. There is a catalog full of members-only deals including a 55" VIZIO LED SmartTV for $548, a $99 Keurig and Smartphones for $.96.

8am: Walmart
If you're in the market for a new iPhone you'll probably want to put Walmart on your schedule. Trade-in your old Smartphone and you'll get up to $300 in-store credit which you can use to buy a new Smartphone. Choose an iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s and you'll also score another $75 Walmart gift card.

Various: Apple
Apple has confirmed that they will be offering special deals online and in store on Black Friday. The hours vary depending on location and the specific deals haven't been released, but based on last year's Black Friday sale Apple fans will be happy. In 2012 iPads were discounted by $41 and shoppers also enjoyed discounts on other popular products.
