The retailer is also extended layaway this year, both online and in store, giving shoppers 12 weeks to pay for purchases.

Target is launching a 4-day sale starting Sunday, November 21st.
It will feature more than 170 items that will not be included in their Black Friday sale.
Coupons will be available in the Sunday circular to offer even more savings.

Kohl's will be running four different pre-Black Friday sales between November 5th and November 20th. Highlights include a November 17th "Secret Sale" where an additional 15-30% will be taken off everything in store and online. Kohl's Cash program, where you get a $10 gift-card for every $50 spent, is also coming back.

    I'm hoping for at least one thing that screams "wait in line for 6 hours before store opening" but it usually never happens. Mr Green

    I like "at home" Black Friday....get the sales before the folks that stand in line, shop at home, avoid the crowds!

    Last year was my first Black Friday and I'm hopin to do the same this year. I only went to one store and planned on getting one item but had an extra item in mind to grab if I could on the way to the checkout. Hopefully things I want won't be scattered at different stores this year. I saved $57 and spent $63 last year so all in all I did pretty good.
