When Will the First Black Friday Ad Be Posted?
Posted on July 1st @ 11:00 am ET in Guides & Tips

We know many of you anticipate the first leaked ad to be posted each year. We've compiled a chart which shows the dates we've posted ads during the past 14 years. You'll notice that aside from a few early smaller ads, the more popular ads typically start getting posted in early November.
