Shoppers have been conditioned to think it takes waiting in long lines and pulling all-nighters to score steals on the most popular presents. We checked with the biggest names with Black Friday doorbusters and found they are changing the way they do business this year.
Retailers are making it easier than ever this year to get doorbuster deals without having to suffer the lines on the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
Walmart is offering the $150 hoverboard, $179 Chromebook touch lap top and even $20 Legos at www.Walmart.com. The site will be honoring the Black Friday ad on everything other than DVD’s and a couple of specialty items.
We're all familiar with the lines wrapped around the block at Best Buy on Thanksgiving. The store told us almost everything in their ad is available on their website. A couple of exceptions are the Sharp 50’ 4k UHD smart TV for $179.99 and Toshiba 55’ 4k UHD for $279.99.
Macy's and Kohls are making some of the deepest discounts this weekend both putting it all out there online as well. Macy's is actually giving away 10 items for free this year after the rebate. If you want the freebies you must show up at the store.
Toys"R"Us sticking with tradition in that you'll find the entire ad online between Thursday and Sunday except for the doorbusters.
JCPenny says everything in their Black Friday ad is available right now through the rest of the week.
There is one caveat. The offers are only good while supplies last so there is no guarantee you'll get the item in store or online. It is always best to ask the retailer if they offer a rain check.
