Although the traditional day designated as Black Friday falls late this year on November 29, the sales associated with it have started earlier than ever. The promotions that stretched in previous years over the entire weekend and into the following Cyberweek are now offered by some stores for practically the entire month of November! Retailers released preview ads and information earlier than ever. Costco Walmart, and Amazon started promoting some of their deals a week early, while Sears Shop Your Way members and Target RedCard holders gained early access to Black Friday ads and sales.
To better manage the crowds they’re expecting, Best Buy and Walmart plan to spread out their doorbuster deals at specific times, and Walmart’s new 1-hour in-stock guarantee for 21 of the advertised items will insure that more in-store shoppers will be able to buy them. For those who would rather shop from the comfort of home, most stores will offer some of the best deals online all day starting on Thursday.

With 6 less shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, retailers are trying harder to attract customers by releasing more details about their Black Friday deals early. In fact, they’re even discounting this year’s hot items in more pre-Black Friday promotions. So shoppers will have a chance to plan weeks in advance for the most savings. Nearly a third of shoppers surveyed recently said they would be motivated only by sales of 40%-50% off, so retailers will likely deliver some mega discounts to get them in the store.
We are all about best discounts here on Buxr, so naturally we’ve collected links for the stores that already offer a sneak peek of either their online deals or in-store sales. What follows is the result of our research. Enjoy!

This is the time of year when we begin thinking of holiday gift ideas, and gift cards are definitely a popular choice. In fact, gift cards have been the most requested item on holiday wish lists for the past six years, from 2007 through 2012. And an even better buy would be gift cards at a discount! You can buy them for yourself and use them when shopping for holiday gifts, or wait until after the holidays to take advantage of an increased inventory of unwanted gift cards.
We’ve reviewed the sites and found five that all have the three features we consider most important as far as buying gift cards go: guaranteed transactions, no fees, and free shipping. The amount you can save varies based on the popularity of the merchant. And it’s definitely worthwhile to compare prices between the sites, because no single site offers the deepest discounts on all their cards. Many of the cards are for odd amounts, however, because the sites will buy cards that have a remaining balance after being partially used.
