Black Friday Ads For 2013

As soon as back-to-school is over with, all the best stores go right into anticipating the next big event in shopping: Black Friday. A major part of the marketing campaigns for this once-a-year momentous event are online ads.

This year’s Black Friday promises to be bigger than ever before, so of course the 2013 Black Friday online ads would reflect that. As early as September, people start to search for leaked Black Friday ads in the hopes that their detective work will give them the scoop on Black Friday sales before everyone else. For the most part, retailers seem happy to play along. And why wouldn’t they? In 2011 alone, consumers spent 52.4 billion dollars on Black Friday weekend.

For those eagerly awaiting the Target ads for Black Friday, you’ll probably have to wait until the very moment Target decides they want that information public. Target is notoriously tight with their marketing campaigns, so don’t expect to see any leaked Black Friday ads from them. However, you can enter your email on their website to be instantly alerted as soon as the 2013 Black Friday Target ads hit the web.

Other online ads that are worth signing up to get include Walmart and Best Buy. This year, Walmart’s online ads are even offering free shipping on in-stock items. And if you’re somehow busy on Black Friday, not to worry, Walmart is already advertising a full Cyber Week. Other stores taking part in Cyber Week include Target, Macy’s, Kmart, Lowe’s, Staples and Sears. For Black Friday 2013, Best Buy is already promising big deals on select appliances, laptops, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, digital cameras, video games and more.

You can expect leaked Black Friday ads to begin appearing on the internet in the middle of October. Best Buy has traditionally been the first to let their ads slip out, followed by Sears, Walmart, and Kmart. Last year, Kmart alone advertised over 750 deals for Black Friday, including time-limited door busters both online and in-store. And since last year’s Walmart online ads showcased a deal on Apple’s iPad 2, this year we’re thinking you can expect to see savings on the iPad Mini or the 4th generation iPad, and every hint coming out of Walmart about Black Friday indicates that they’ll once again offer a one-hour in-store in-stock guarantee on the biggest deals featured on the front page of their online ads.
