Black Friday 2021 ad scans unveiled: Walmart, Target, Macys and more reveal major price cuts – CNET

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Black Friday can feel more like a season than a weekend these days, as retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy and others kick off “Black Friday” sales as early as October. But how do you know when the “real” sales actually start? Thankfully, retailers are now “leaking” their own full slate of price cuts via newspaper circulars, which are available online days before. We now know, for instance, that Target’s deals will start Nov. 21 and Walmart’s will start Nov. 22. 

Want to see all the details? We’ve collected links to the online circulars here, so you can peruse them at your leisure. In the meantime, we’re compiling and curating our favorite deals available now and coming soon. Whether you’re planning on shopping at Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Costco, Lowes or elsewhere, this is your best starting point. 

The latest additions here are Walmart (updated), Target (updated), Office Depot, Staples, PetSmart and Lowe’s. We’ll add more as we find them. 


Walmart’s early “Deals for Days” events have ended, and now we have the details on its real Black Friday sale, which will start on Monday, Nov. 22. Walmart has posted an interactive ad scan of the upcoming sale on its website — you can check it out below. Note that the retailer is pledging online availability for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, along with AirPods Pro as low as $159 (a new all-time low price).
