ULTA Black Friday online sale starts 7pm Thanksgiving!

Friday, Nov 21, 2014 at 3:19 PM

Beauty addicts rejoice!ULTA Black Friday ad The ULTA Black Friday ad is here and it’s packed with some seriously exciting deals on brand-name makeup, hair products, nail polish and much more.

Online shoppers get a leg up on this sale–you can shop this sale online starting at 7pm (CST) Thanksgiving Day, but you’ll have to wait another hour to shop in-store, as ULTA retail locations won’t be opening up until 8pm.

Customers who buy a fragrance on Black Friday will be rewarded with a free 3-piece serving set. While, in my opinion, a 3-piece serving set is an exceptionally weird thing to get for free from a store that specializes in beauty products, not cakes, it IS kind of a cute serving platter. Like, I don’t know when I would ever use it, but just owning a 3-piece serving set would probably make me feel like a duchess or something.

Amex Can Save You Money at JCPenney on Black Friday!

Friday, Nov 21, 2014 at 2:28 PM

A little known program that American Express runs is called “Amex Offers,” which allows you to save money in the form of statement credits just by linking your American Express card(s) to your social media accounts as we wrote about previously here.

The most recent deal revealed is with JCPenney.  By syncing your account, then spending $50 or more at a JCP.com or in-store, you’ll receive a $10 statement credit.  Purchases must be made by 12/31/2014 (so this will be good for Black Friday).

Other deals work in the same manner, or just require you to link your American Express card to the deal by checking your

account at AmexOffers.com.  While you’re at it, you can sign up for Small Business Saturday, the day after Black Friday, to save even more on holiday gifts (or lunch, if they’re a small business) with your Amex card.

Other deals on my account include BCBG.com, Madewell, Seasons 52, BirchLane.com, City Sports, Petco.com, and Reebok.com, among others.  Deals will vary account-to-account!

H&M Black Friday “Deal Days” start today!

Friday, Nov 21, 2014 at 12:08 PM

H&M is holding a pre-Black Friday H&Msale from today, 11/21 until Monday, 11/24. The sale looks pretty promising, but I have to admit I was distracted from the get-go by the male model adorning the “Gifts for Him” section. Take a close look at the picture to your right and tell me that’s not the guy in the new Taylor Swift music video! Spoiler alert: it’s TOTALLY the guy from the new Taylor Swift music video. For the record I’m aware I’m probably the only person on the planet who would get even remotely excited about this, but on the off chance that another TSwift fangirl or boy is reading this, I thought I would take a moment and point it out. You’re welcome.

Anyway, H&M is offering free shipping on all online orders over $50 until 11/29, and for the holidays, they’re partnering with the humanitarian organization CARE, which fights global poverty by empowering women and girls. H&M is donating double the sale price of their Giving Together holiday gift labels to CARE, and at $1.95 a pop, there’s no reason  not to pick up a couple packs. You’ll need to label your gifts anyway, right? Why not give back a little bit while you’re doing it?

How Amazon’s Black Friday Sale Works + 3 Tips for Getting the Deal You Want

Friday, Nov 21, 2014 at 11:01 AM

I’ll just come right out and say it: the Amazon Black Friday sale is totally confusing, even for the seasoned sale sniffers here at Brad’s Deals. After we posted our initial announcement of the online megastore’s 8-day Black Friday sale (which starts TODAY, btw) we got a ton of questions from you guys about when certain items would go on sale, how long each sale would last, and how to know what kinds of sales to expect on what days.

Amazon Deals WeekThe short answer to all of these questions is: we don’t know for sure. Even the Black Friday ad we got from Amazon was just a list containing, in their own words, “examples of some of the door-buster deals that will be available at various times between November 21 and Black Friday.” So basically, the list we have isn’t even the full list of doorbusters, and Amazon will not be supplying curious shoppers with any kind of easy-to-understand, deal-breaking timeline, gotcha.

We don’t even know exactly how often the deals will be released. Amazon’s press release says the site will add new deals “as often as every 10 minutes,” which means you can’t even count on obsessively checking the site every 10 minutes. We’re going to assume that language is in there because the sale postings might slow down overnight, but we really can’t say anything for sure.

Walmart’s “Cyber Week” starts November 29!

Friday, Nov 21, 2014 at 10:53 AM


Today Walmart unveiled plans for its “Cyber Week”, including a four page Cyber Monday sneak peek that can be found here. The week-long promotion will run from Saturday, Novemeber 29 through Friday, December 5. More than 500 new products will be featured each day.

“We’re doubling down on Cyber Monday this year, offering more than twice the number of deals compared to last year, and delivering it on a new web site that makes shopping easier and faster with free shipping on the season’s hottest gifts all week long,” explained Walmart.com President and CEO Fernando Madeira.

Prices on some items, including a Nintendo 3DS XL, 49″ LG HDTV and an 86-piece tool set, are not listed in the sneak peek. Those prices will not be revealed until the big day on December 1.

Some other Cyber Week deals include:

  • Samsung 55” 4K Ultra HD LED HDTV – $998 (was $1498)
  • PlayStation 4 Lego Batman & Little Big Planet Bundle w/ Choice of Extra Game and Controller – $449 (was $638)
  • Double Power 7″ Android Tablet – $37.99 (was $69.99)
  • SANYO 58″ 1080p LED HDTV – $499 (was $799)
  • MD Sports 2 Player Basketball Game – $65 (was $159)

Walmart’s Black Friday pre-sale began today and (of course) the retailer has big plans for the biggest shopping day of the year.

The Best 25 Black Friday Deals of 2014

Thursday, Nov 20, 2014 at 8:54 PM

Best Black Friday Deals 2014It’s hard to believe we’re already just a week away from Black Friday! As we’ve done in years past, my team and I have scoured the ads we’ve got to find the best Black Friday deals of 2014.

For 2014 I’ve added sale times for each item, whether or not we expect to see the deal sold online, and the page of the ad where you can find it.

Unbelievably, there is only one deal on my list that is exclusively sold on Friday. Of the other 24, the vast majority begin on Thanksgiving Day. Details are murky for two deals from Amazon, which is running eight days of sales and doesn’t publish a schedule, and one will be available beginning 11/21, a full week ahead of Black Friday. It just goes to show that Black Friday has grown well beyond a single shopping day into an entire season!

I’ve added specific comments on a few of these deals below the list.
