When to Expect Your Favorite Store's Black Friday Ad
Posted on October 20th @ 5:46 pm ET in Guides & Tips

We took the data from the past four years to find out how soon before Black Friday each ad typically gets leaked here on GottaDEAL. We then based those days on this year's Black Friday date, November 29th, to come up with a calendar for this year for the most popular stores.

Of course you may remember that the last few years we had crazy 2-day periods that saw ads from Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Kohl's, Sears, Sam's Club and many others all released right after each other. We expect something similar this year around November 11th-13th.
When Will the First Black Friday Ad Be Posted?
Posted on September 9th @ 9:14 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 13 years. You'll notice that aside from a few early smaller ads, the more popular ads typically start getting posted in late October.

With Black Friday falling on the latest possible date this year, ad leaks could be delayed compared to last year when Black Friday was on the earliest possible date. Make sure you're signed up for our free alert mailing list in case an ad gets leaked sooner than expected.

Several years ago we compiled a list of best practices that stores can follow for a successful day - Black Friday 101 for retailers. We think these ideas still are valid and should be considered.
