The major fun will be in the department stores themselves. You can search for all the best items on the shelves, but if you're looking to start early, JCP.com is offering Black Friday deals all day Thanksgiving until 1:00 p.m. on Friday, Central Standard Time. Orders over $49 placed between Thursday and Monday receive free shipping, so there's no need to worry about extra charges for shopping at home.
As a treat for all those doorbusters who show up early to shop, JCPenney is giving away free Mickey Mouse snow globes starting at 4:00 a.m. on Friday, while supplies last. It's their super-cute way of saying thank-you to their loyal customers.
There are two special sales that will run in addition to the major price cuts during the Black Friday sales event. The first one lasts from Thursday at 8:00 p.m. until Friday at 9:00 p.m. Customers who buy a four-pack of JCPenney gift cards totaling $100 will get a $25-off coupon to be used in the store. Also on Friday, from 2:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., anyone who presents the coupon at checkout will get an extra 15 percent off his or her purchase. Saving money was never so easy.
Super savings we saw in the JCPenney Black Friday ad include a Bella juicer for $40 (originally priced at $80). To add to that, all Samsonite luggage is 60 percent off for all doorbusters. Decorative comforter sets are on sale for 50-60 percent off, starting as low as $50 for a set. Small things like towels starting at $5 and pillows for $3 make it easy to stock up on essentials you might not buy otherwise.
The JCPenney Black Friday ad also boasts that an extra 20 percent discount will be added to all fine jewelry, which is already reduced by 20-50 percent. This means beautiful half-carat diamond bracelets are on sale for $99 each. Those are the sales you definitely want to tell your boyfriend about.
There are sales on hundreds of other items at JCPenney, but these are the outstanding sales available for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping. Did you see anything you just have to get?
