Both the  674-item Walmart Black Friday advertisement listing along with the 45-page Walmart Black Friday advertisement scans are online at Walmart is saying that these three doorbusters will remain in-stock from 10pm to 11pm on Thanksgiving Night.

Target hasn’t posted their deals yet, but they have a sign-up form on for customers to sign up.  I’ll be posting soon on fashion deals, but you can expect doorbusters from JC Penney and Kohl’s on their fashions and cosmetics. Kohl’s is getting started early with a sale this weekend offering 30% off for Kohl’s Cardholders + Kohl’s Cash promotion. Here are the details. For Kohl’s cardholders, use coupon code SHOP30 to take 30% off your order. For non-cardholders, use coupon code GRATITUDE to take 15% off your entire order!   Plus, everyone (cardholders and non-cardholders) gets $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent, with no limit, through Monday, November 12. I’m thinking about going for my Narcisco Rodriguez at Kohl’s this weekend. Watch this space!
