Hi! My name is Witold (pronounced "vee-told") and I am the founder of BlackerFriday.com. 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!
We’re still waiting for The Sharper Image to release a copy of their Black Friday ad. However you can scroll down the page to see last year’s Black Friday sale highlights to get a general sense as to what’s likely to come. Check back soon for updates or join our newsletter and we’ll let you know the moment their ad is released.

Updated on November 22, 2018: Just like we’ve seen this past week, a number of brands just can’t wait to get a head start on their Black Friday sales. The Sharper Image is just one of those brands that just send out their email base with early preview access.
Highlights this year include a 20% cash-back coupon and free shipping on orders of $99 or more when you use promo code SHIP99 at checkout. They’ve also got a chrome hover-board on sale for $179.99 (makes a great Xmas gift), waterproof bluetooth surround sound speaker system on sale for $99.99, stainless steel easy egg cooker on sale for $49.99, and a decorative led christmas tree on sale for $79.99. See the add posted below for a look at the remaining featured items.
There’s obviously a lot more on their site on sale so be sure to check it out. Good luck and happy bargain hunting this Thanksgiving weekend!
Updated on Saturday August 24, 2019: Labor Day weekend is next week but you can expect Home Depot’s Labor Day sale to start much sooner than that, likely by Thursday of next week (however their appliance sale is already live!). So what can you expect them to offer this year?
For the last number of year (more than we can remember), Home Depot’s Labor Day weekend sale is when they clear out all of their remaining summertime items. That includes outdoor grills, patio sets, garden tools – including most lawnmowers, large umbrellas, and alike, in stock. They also typically have paint, wood stains, and painting supplies on sale as well, likely mirroring the sale from last year. You can scroll down the page to see some of last year’s sale highlights to get an idea of what’s likely to come. As soon as we have more sale details and a copy of their Labor Day flyer we’ll update this page with everything you’ll need to know. Check back again for the latest updates.
In the meantime, be sure to take a look at Home Depot’s sale page where you can already pick up select home improvement and building supplies on sale. Each day they also have a deal of the day on their site where one item is typically up to 50% off, with a new offer added daily. If you end up buying anything online then remember that most orders over $45.00 will ship to your home for free. Good luck and happy bargain hunting!

Updated on Thursday, August 30, 2018: There is just one day left between us and Labor Day weekend, and with Home Depot’s Labor Day sale now official live, you’re just a few clicks away to that new gas grill you wanted. Or maybe you’re looking to get some new power tools? Or a fridge? You get my drift… Whatever it is, there’s a lot on sale as they clear out their summer inventory.
We’ve posted some of this year’s featured sale items below. But because there are so many deals across all of their departments, you’ll have to visit homedepot.com or your nearest store to browse everything else. Most of the offers will last through to the end of day next Wednesday (September 5, 2018).
Updated Thursday, August 31, 2017: Home Depot has officially kicked off their Labor Day sale! You can shop the sale starting now on their site or in-stores through September 13th, while supplies last.
Here are some of this year’s featured Labor Day deals:
Up to 25% off outdoor power equipment — Everything from lawn mowers to hedgers.
$50.00 off all Weber Spirt grills. Most include free delivery! A similar offer is also available at Lowe’s so be sure to check that out as well.
40% off select appliance “special buys”. A good time to consider getting a new fridge, washer/dryer, or dishwasher. Featured appliances include a Samsung side-by-side refrigerator in black-stainless steel on sale for $998 (vs. $1329) and Maytag high-efficiency top load washer and electric dryer for $648/each (normally $999/each). Free delivery is included on orders of $396 or more.

Up to $100 off on select Milwaukee power tools, with a free M12 Tool or Battery with qualified purchase.
Here’s the copy of their Labor Day email we received as well as some highlights pulled from their website on August 29th (you can compare it to what they offered last year on Black Friday)
So here we go! We still have 11 days to go to Labor Day, but starting today (Thursday, August 25th) Home Depot has just gone live with their “Labor Day” savings (just like Lowe’s did moments ago). We’re putting it in quotes because although they are advertising the deals with Labor Day messaging, the weekly ad is only valid through August 31st… so it’s likely you’ll see a new set of deals coming on September 1st. We are also posting the ad scan below for your record. Many of the items on sale can be purchased online and either shipped to your home or picked up in-store for free. Only a select few items, including some of their seasonal live flowers, are only available in-store.
Oh and keep in mind that you can save $5.00 on your next online purchase at homedepot.com if you signup to their email newsletter. The signup link is at the bottom-right hand side of their homepage (only new signups will qualify).
Home Depot’s Labor Day sale is here starting today, Thursday September 3rd, and running all the way through September 7th, 2015 (some items on sale until September 13th). You’l be able to pick up most of these deals both online at homedepot.com and at your local store.
Here’s a look at some of our favorite buys this year:
BBQ Grills: Weber 22.5” One-Touch Charcoal Grill for $99.00, the Brinkmann 5-Burner gas grill for $169.00, or the Weber Sprit E-210 2-Burner gas grill featuring gourmet BBQ system for $399.

Labor Day is a few days away and, just like every year, Home Depot has already launched their sale both online and in-store. You’ll have from Friday through Monday to pick up their sale items although we recommend shopping earlier than later as often their best sellers sell out early.
You’ll notice that you’ll find different stores will have different things on clearance including many of the summertime stuff that was on display through the season (like BBQ’s, swings, and patio furniture). If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to pick up a new lawn mower for a few hundred off the original list price.
We also recommend that you check out homedepot.com for their online exclusives. Many of the items sold either ship for free or can paid for online and picked up at your nearest store.
Here are the highlights of this year’s sale – Click to view each page: 1 and 2.
Updated on Saturday August 24, 2019: We checked our inbox this morning and look at the surprise we received — Backcountry’s Labor Day sale is kicking off this year nearly a week earlier than we expected!
Starting now, shop backcountry.com to get up to 50% off select sale items. Plus if you find something you like that’s not on sale then you’ll be able to shave 20% off the full retail price with promo code Take20Summer. We’ve posted some of the sale highlights in the screenshots below but because there is just so much there to see, we can’t nearly capture it all. Check out their site to see what’s currently available and for a look at the official sale terms and conditions. Happy bargain hunting!

Updated on Thursday, August 30, 2018: There still is a day separating us from the start of Labor Day weekend, but noting separating us from Backcountry’s Labor Day sale — It just went live!
Visit backcountry.com between now and Monday to save up to 50% off on some of your favorite outdoor gear. That includes brands such as Patagonia, Black Diamond, MSR, Salomon, Marmot, and Keen. Free 2-day shipping is also included on orders of $50 or more. Just be quick because some of the most popular items will likely sell out in their popular sizes and colors.
Updated August 24, 2017: Although we are still a week away from Labor Day weekend, it looks like Backcountry already went ahead and launched their deals.
This year you’ll be able to pick up deals at up to 50% off from brands like The North Face, MSR, Black Diamond, and Patagonia. There’s a lot of gear on sale so there’s a little too much for us to cover, but we recommend you check out some of their winter jackets and cold weather gear because you likely won’t find deeper discounts in this category until after Christmas (Black Friday typically has the best clearance offers on summer/light gear). We’ve took screen shots of the first few pages of the highlighted offers — you can check them out down below.
As always, certain terms and conditions may apply so see backcountry.com for full details. Most items are in very limited quantities/sizes so don’t wait too long if you find something you like.
