“AAFES” is the acronym for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, and the store is open only to members of those branches of the military and their families. Brad’s Deals looks for military discounts year round, so it’s particularly exciting and rewarding for us to highlight Black Friday sales that are specifically for our servicemen and servicewomen, and which will help these very deserving families have the best holiday possible.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: This is obviously NOT a final copy of the ad, and there are no prices listed, with the exception of page 26 (which is a fairly uninteresting page at that). It’s clear this is a true not-ready-for-prime-time leak, so everything in it should be treated as a rumor only. Check back for an updated copy soon. We’ll certainly be on the lookout. In the meantime, although the rough draft character of this ad means that the products available are still subject to change, we believe this is still a very good indication of what you can expect to see at AAFES on Black Friday.
The 2013 version of the AAFES Black Friday ad is 32 pages long and announces a 4am start time for the sale, which is precisely the same as it was last year. Some of the goods that caught our eye include Michael Kors handbags and shoes, televisions as large as 70″, Beats headphones and pill speakers, a free Apple TV with any iMac, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air, Samsung Galaxy S4, Keurig coffee brewers, Lucky Brand and Tommy Hilfiger jeans, North Face and Under Armour fleece, a CharBroil 6-burner gas grill, and what promises to be a pretty sweet but as of yet unknown discount on all products from The Body Shop.
While we don’t know how much they’ll be, we do have a sense of the doorbusters, presumably with special pricing available during specific windows throughout the day:
- 7am-9am: Dyson Hand-Held Vacuum
- 10am-12pm: Keurig Special Edition Brewing System
- 12pm-4pm: Coach Handbags and Accessories
- 8am-12pm: Lindt Gold Bear with Purchase of an item to be determined
Lastly, if you are qualified to shop at AAFES this Black Friday – or at any of the military exchanges that will be running Black Friday sales, for that matter – the entire Brad’s Deals team extends its thanks to you for your service and wishes you a happy holidays.
