Welcome to our Online Black Friday Tracker. Below you'll find details of all the online Black Friday sales for your favorite stores. You'll also find links to the Black Friday ads and our Black Friday forums to discuss this year's online sales. If you are new to online Black Friday shopping or just want to be prepared, read our comprehensive set of online Black Friday shopping tips.
Note that although we try to keep this schedule as accurate as possible, retailers are notorious for starting their online sales earlier or later than expected. We recommend that you sign up for our Black Friday alerts and we'll e-mail you immediately if there are any last-minute changes to the schedule as well as the moment the major retailers launch their online sales.
Note: The tracker is no longer being updated. We'll have updated online Black Friday sale information in 2014.
Amazon.com will begin their week-long Black Friday Deals Week sale on Sunday November 24th. Expect Amazon.com to have thousands of their popular Lightning Deals and other limited time offers. Also expect them to match other retailer's Black Friday prices on the most popular deals from their competitors' actual sale ads.
Best Buy usually starts their Black Friday sale online late Wednesday night / early Thursday morning. We expect the same this year as the sale should start around 1am EST. Usually their site goes through some changes where the ad items are marked as "coming soon" before they are finally available to order. Free shipping on $25+ orders.
It should be very interesting to see what Walmart has planned for their online Black Friday sale this year. Last year you may remember that only a very small percentage of ad items were available online early Thursday morning. We are working to find out if more of the ad will be available online this year or if last year's trend will continue.
Target.com started their online Black Friday sale in the early morning hours on Thursday last year, so until we hear otherwise we are going to predict that you'll see a similar starting time this year. Consider signing up for the Target REDcard to save an extra 5% plus free shipping.
Kohl's has announced that their online sale will start on Tuesday this year, but we've been told midnight EST. Save an extra 15% on your entire order with coupon code BLACKFRI. Plus you'll earn an amazing $15 in Kohl's Cash with every $50 you spend (after discounts).
Sam's Club typically starts their online Black Friday sale at 11pm to midnight EST on Wednesday night, and we expect the same this year. Their ad indicated the sale would start on Thursday. You'll need a Sam's Club membership to get the best prices on these deals.
We have received word from Sears that their Black Friday doorbuster deals will be available on Sears.com starting at 6pm CST on Wednesday night and they will be available until 3:00pm on Friday afternoon.

Lowe's indicates on their Black Friday countdown page and in their Black Friday ad that their Black Friday pricing will be effective starting at midnight on Thanksgiving Day. We're working to confirm the time zone. Lowe's currently offers free shipping on most orders of $49 or more.
Toys R Us states in their Black Friday ad that you can start shopping for their Black Friday deals at 12:01am on Thursday. We were also informed that the doorbuster items are not scheduled to go online until 5pm EST on Thursday night. This coincides with their physical store opening time.
Dell will have several sets of rotating online Black Friday doorbsuter specials beginning at 6pm EST on Thanksgiving night. The second set of doorbusters will begin at midnight, the third set at 8am and the final set will begin at 2pm on Black Friday. You'll also get free shipping on nearly everything during the sale.
GameStop announced that their Black Friday offers will start as early as Thanksgiving Day this year. Some of the deals will be held until Black Friday itself, however. We are working to obtain more information on exact start times for both days of the sale.
The Home Depot Black Friday ad states that their online sale will start at 6am on Thanksgiving Day. No time zone is given, but based on previous sales we're going to go with EST unless we hear otherwise.
Old Navy has 50% off their entire store on Thursday and Friday this year, and we're expecting a similar offer for their online Black Friday sale. We'll update the tracker with more information as we receive it.
