Carson’s Black Friday in August Is Pretty Close to the Real Thing

Friday, Aug 22, 2014 at 3:43 PM

Most summer Black Friday sales are pretty pale compared to the real thing in November, but Carson’s August Black Friday deals are the rare exception. Running today through Sunday, you’ll find doorbusters that actually live up to the hype. Don’t have a Carson’s near you? Check out Bon-Ton, Herberger’s, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Younkers or Elder-Beerman instead. They’re the same store run under different names depending on where you live. They’ll have all of the same August Black Friday deals we mention here for Carson’s.

Before we get started though, we have one quick note. While there are plenty of deals throughout the store, we’re certain that popular kitchen electronics like KitchenAid stand mixers and Keurig coffee brewers will be cheaper in November, with bigger price cuts, better rebates and bonus store rewards that make waiting worth your while.

P.S. Don’t forget to add coupon code FREESHIP to score free shipping on anything you order.

$40 off Shoes from Clarks and b.o.c

Last year on Black Friday, Carson’s took 50% off all boots by these brands, ranging from $82.50 to $107.50 off. This weekend’s sale doesn’t go that far, but it gets pretty darn close to the November Black Friday sale when you buy b.o.c shoes originally priced at $85, the lowest original price we found, now available for $45. For Clarks, we found shoes starting at $95, available this weekend for $55. Both are good deals on these brands, and are on par with what we see on Black Friday. We liked the  “Jami” Casual Loafers and “Alejandra” Casual Flats from b.o.c., both $45, along with the Clarks “Esha Marigold” Slip-Ons for $55. (Pictured left to right)

It’s 100 Days until Black Friday! Here Are 7 Things You Need to Know TODAY.

Tuesday, Aug 19, 2014 at 7:00 AM

It’s just 100 short days until Black Friday 2014! Do you realize how short that really is? It may be back-to-school season now, but that will quickly segue into Halloween and Thanksgiving and, you know, Black Friday. And of course, Black Friday predictions and rumors are just around the corner, too.

Black Friday 2014 Early Tips

We’ve been at this whole Black Friday thing awhile now, and there are a few things we’ve learned over the years.

The first ads usually start leaking in mid-October.

“When will we start seeing Black Friday ads?” is one of the most common questions we get. To answer, we took an accounting of the first ads we’ve gotten over the last few years:

The Sprint leak in 2012 was actually unprecedented in how early it was, and also was not a typical ad in that it only revealed one product. The next ad we found in 2012 was Harbor Freight again, this time on October 12. So we’re comfortable calling the 2012 Sprint leak a fluke, but it just proves the point that there’s no way to predict when an ad will be released unless the retailer announces it. And even then, someone might swipe a copy off the boss’s desk and sent it out to the interwebs ahead of schedule.

The Summer Secret to Getting Early Black Friday Doorbusters in November

Wednesday, Jul 30, 2014 at 9:14 AM

Last November, we let our readers in on one of our favorite dirty little secrets about Black Friday: Anyone can get almost anything at its Black Friday price well before Black Friday.

Why wait in this line when you can get your doorbuster sooner for the same price?

In our post Get Those Black Friday Deals – Before Black Friday, we pointed out how savvy shoppers can use credit card price matching programs to avoid the crowds and score doorbusters early without leaving the comfort and warmth of their own homes. The gist is that if you know what the Black Friday price will be, and can offer proof of that price, select credit cards will refund you the difference.

If this sounds like an appealing strategy to you, then the best time to make sure at least one of those credit cards is in your wallet come November is right now.

Trust me, you didn’t want to learn about this time and money saving strategy the week before Black Friday, when it would be too late to get approved and for your card to arrive in the mail. Summer is the perfect time to apply. Plus, if the card you choose requires a minimum spend over three months, as so many of the better rewards cards do, your points will hit your account just in time to use them for holiday travel, saving you even more money.
