Hi! My name is Witold (pronounced "vee-told") and I am the founder of After many years working in corporate america, I decided it was time to take a break to pursue my real passion — helping people save money. Ever since I was a little boy selling pencils in the playground to my kindergarden friends, later collecting aluminum cans from all my neighbors in elementary school to support my baseball card addiction, eventually becoming an eBay Power Seller in my older years to support my college education, I had an eye for spotting deals. I’ve taken what I have learned over the years and built Blacker Friday to bring you the best Black Friday rumors, predictions, and news website. Fortunately I'm not alone in this - We have a great team of dedicated folks helping make this site possible. If you would like to connect with me you can do so on my Linkedin page, on our site’s Facebook page, or write me an email. Thanks for checking us out and I look forward to hearing from you!

Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday 2024 Sale & Ad

Updated on Tuesday July 9, 2024: For those of you that are avid hunters and fishers, or if you’re shopping Christmas presents for someone who is, Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday sale is one event that shouldn’t be missed (especially if you’re planning on taking advantage of one of their in-store doorbuster deals or free early-bird giveaway). And while it’s still too early to have an official copy of their 2024 ad, we’re been tracking them for the last decade and know pretty much what to expect and when to expect it. Here are our predictions this year:

  • The event is expected to kick-off on Monday November 25, 2024 both in-stores and online (that’s the Monday before Thanksgiving). The advertised offers are expected to be valid through Sunday December 1, 2024 or while in-stock inventory lasts.
  • A handful of doorbuster “Hot Deals” (often indicated in the first few pages of the ad) are only available in-stores for 1-day-only on Friday November 29, 2024 beginning at 5:00AM when doors open. The first 250 customer in your local store on Black Friday can also expect to receive a free mystery gift card worth anywhere from $10 to $500 that can be used on a future purchase (often valid throughout December). Just remember, you must be 18+ years old to get one so forget about dragging all your kids with to the store in order to pick up more gift cards (other terms always apply, see page 2 in last year’s ad posted below for complete details as you can expect similar terms to return again).
  • In terms of the deals, expect to see a little bit of everything on sale; from rifles to logo hoodies, to fishing reels to outdoor boots. They also often have specials on those big purchases such as ATVs and bass boats.
  • Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday ad is typically around 48 pages long. It should be leaked on or around Wednesday November 13, 2024, giving you plenty of time to plan ahead.
  • During the month of November you can also expect to see Santa at your local store. So bring your kid for a free photo or take advantage of their photo package (last year it was 20% off for Club Members). You can reserve your spot up to 7 days in advance.

As always, the moment Bass Pro Shops’ Black Friday 2024 ad is available we’ll get it posted for you right here on this page. Be sure to check back for updates throughout the month of November or join our newsletter to stay informed. See you again soon and happy bargain hunting!

  • Expected BF sale start date: Monday November 25, 2024 (that’s the Monday before Thanksgiving).
  • Expected doorbuster “Hot Deals”: 1-day-only in-stores on Friday November 29, 2024. Doors open at 5:00AM local time.

Kohl’s Black Friday 2024 Sale & Ad

Updated on Tuesday July 9, 2024: You’ve probably noticed that during these last few years, Black Friday at many stores is no longer a 1-day event; in some cases, like at Kohl’s, we see days of deals. And while it’s still too early for us to bring you a copy of this year’s ad, we’ve been tracking them long enough to pretty much know what’s to come. Here are our 2024 predictions:

  • Kohl’s usually runs three separate rounds of “Black Friday” deals in the month of November. We’re predicting the following sales schedule:
    • Round #1: A week long “early access” Black Friday event beginning on or around Friday November 8, 2024 (that’s three weeks before Black Friday). While you won’t see as many offers, the ones you will see will be the same ones coming at their main event.
    • Round #2: This round of deals are expected to begin on Sunday November 24, 2024 and run through Black Friday itself.
    • Round #3: These are usually Kohl’s best Black Friday deals (aka “Super Deals”) and tend to sell out quickly (these offers are differentiated in yellow in their ad). They always go live on Thanksgiving day online and in-stores on Black Friday.
  • In terms of what’s on sale, you’ll find everything from toys to electronics, small kitchen appliances to clothing, all in a 48-page ad. You can scroll down the page to view last year’s ad to get a general idea of what’s to come.
  • In addition to the featured sale items, which are pretty much priced competitively to what you’ll also find at Walmart, Amazon and Target, you can expect to earn extra “Kohl’s Cash” on your purchases during the event. That is basically store credit that you can use for a future in-store or online purchase, usually valid in early December. Last year they offered $15 for every $50 spent.
  • Ever since Covid, Kohl’s has kept stores closed on all day on Thanksgiving itself. We’re expecting this trend to continue here in 2024. Doors typically open the next day at 5:00am.
  • While the featured offers will officially end at the end of the day or while supplies last on Black Friday, more compelling deals will return a few days later for just 24-hours on Cyber Monday.

So that’s basically what we’re predicting at the moment. Of course we’re watching all of Kohl’s press releases and will be updating this page as news breaks, including posting their official ad once it’s out.

Kohl’s Black Friday 2024 Sales Schedule

Ever since we started tracking Kohl’s Black Friday sales nearly 9 years ago, they’ve been running nearly the exact same sales schedule; there will be a handful of pre-BF deals followed by the main event. Within the main event there are some doorbuster deals available only for 48 hours on Thanksgiving day and Black Friday itself (or while in-stock supplies last). Kohl’s calls these “Super Deals”. Here are the expected Black Friday sale start and end dates here in 2024:

  • Expected Early Access to Black Friday deals: November 8-14, 2024.
  • Expected general Black Friday start date: Sunday November 24, 2024 at 12:01AM CT (online) and in-stores when doors open. All offers will be valid through Friday November 29, 2024 at 11:59PM CT or when stores close or while supplies last, whichever comes first.
  • Expected Black Friday “Super Deals” start date, online: Thursday November 28, 2024 at 12:01AM CT (these are Kohl’s doorbuster deals, highlighted in yellow within their Black Friday ad).
  • Expected Black Friday “Super Deals” start date, in-stores: Friday November 29, 2024 when doors open at 5:00AM. All stores are typically closed on Thanksgiving day itself this year.
  • Expected main Black Friday deals and Black Friday “Super Deals” sale, end date: Friday November 29, 2024 at 11:59PM CT or when stores close, while supplies last.

The North Face’s Black Friday 2024 Sale & Ad

Updated on Monday July 8, 2024: The North Face’s Black Friday sale comes at the perfect time of the year, just as it gets cold outside ahead of winter. So how much can you expect to save on your new jacket or whatever else you plan on getting this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend? Here are our predictions:

  • Expect to save 40% off select sale items across the store. That includes jackets, gear and shoes.
  • It’s often not a site-wide sale, only select items are included in the offer.
  • The event will likely kick-off on Tuesday November 26, 2024 (that’s 2 days before Thanksgiving). The sale is expected to officially end on Sunday December 1, 2024. However, we often see nearly identical sale items for 40% off on Cyber Monday, but with the addition of 30% off all other full-priced items as well.
  • As always, everything is available only while in-stock supplies last. Remember that the most popular styles and sizes tend to sell out quickly.
  • The North Face’s Black Friday sale usually runs online and at their retail stores in the United States. Outlet stores are often excluded from the offer.

Be on the lookout for The North Face’s Black Friday ad posted right here on Blacker Friday the moment it’s released. Of course all of you joined to our newsletter will get a note in your email box once it’s posted.
