As we recently reported, retailers are already gearing up for Black Friday 2010. This week, more Black Friday ads were leaked with hot deals at stores like Walmart and Best Buy. The cool thing is that many of these Black Friday deals can be taken advantage of online from the comfort of your own home.
Walmart’s pre-Black Friday event runs November 6-7, 2010 and will get shoppers in the holiday spirit with major deals on Christmas gifts. Best Buy is thinking along the same lines and urges consumers to take advantage of the deals now with their “Shop Early, Save Big” campaign that runs now through November 13th. Best Buy’s Black Friday ads run the gamut and include special deals on HDTV’s, phones, Sony PSP Go and more!
But many are left wondering why retailers are kicking off Black Friday sales early. According to Ellen Davis, President of the National Retail Federation, this strategy of releasing Black Friday ads early is rather new and not always deliberate. She explained, “They don’t want their Black Friday deals to get out too early because then you tip your hand to the competition. If you’re offering $9 crockpots, then your competition might offer them for $8.” True. She continued, “Retailers found that the circulars were leaked by a vendor who might have been printing them, or someone inside the company who didn’t have permission to do so.”
