This year, retailers are starting Black Friday discounts earlier and to make it worth leaving the Thanksgiving Day dinner in favor of waiting in line, they’re throwing in some free stuff to sweeten the deal. Here’s our top Black Friday freebies list for 2012, based on retailers’ ads.
Every year, come Black Friday, we’re all looking and asking around for the best deals, the biggest savings and of course for the best freebies. Novices might not know this, but Black Friday connoisseurs schedule their shopping night based on the freebies retailers promise ahead of the start.
Some are great deals, some are really not worth wasting time in line, but that is up to every buyer’s needs and taste. So, here’s the top Black Friday freebies retailers have promised this year:
