We've Got Even More Black Friday Freebies!

Black Friday freebies

At its core, Black Friday is all about saving money, and there's no better way to save money than to get stuff for free! Below, we've rounded up all the Black Friday deals featuring BOGOs, gift cards, and outright free items that we could find. Note that some of these offers are only rumors, and we've marked them as such. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back often, as we'll be adding even more Black Friday freebies as we come across them. Now, bring on the free stuff!

  • JCPenney
    JCPenney snow globe Black Friday

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: This doorbuster freebie was actually the first 2013 Black Friday ad: a free JCPenney 2013 Snow Globe. In response to the frustrated outcry of shoppers who went home globeless in 2012, JCPenney has brought back the popular keepsake. No word yet on when you'll have to show up in-store to bag one, though, so stay tuned for more details on how to get yours.

  • Seattle's Best Coffee

    Freebie: Whether you're standing in line at midnight on Black Friday or heading back to the daily grind on Friday morning, Seattle's Best Coffee wants to perk you up with a free sample of its medium roast coffee. Just head on over to its Facebook page anytime after November 13 and sign up to have that liquid caffeine delivered directly to your IV mailbox.

  • Half Price Books

    Freebie: Once again, Half Price Books offers up a Black Friday freebie two-fer. In addition to a free $5 gift card, the first 100 customers to cross the threshold at 7 am will get a free tote bag, perfect for hauling all your Black Friday loot. Better yet, one lucky doorbusting consumer could find a surprise in their tote bag: an extra $100 gift card!

  • Shoe Carnival

    Status: Rumor

    Freebie: If you're hoping to pick up some killer kicks this Black Friday, then swing by Shoe Carnival on Thanksgiving. When the doors open at 6 pm, the first 100 customers will get a free gift card worth at least $10. What's more, one lucky early bird might score a free $100 gift card. As if you needed an excuse to go shoe shopping.

  • PetSmart

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: Although human presents tend to be at the top of our Black Friday shopping list, PetSmart wants to make sure that your favorite feline or canine isn't forgotten during the biggest shopping day of the year. For the first 100 shoppers, retail stores are giving away free pet stockings pre-stuffed with dog and cat treats and $130 worth of in-store coupons.

  • Red Lobster
    Red Lobster Black Friday

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: All that shopping is bound to make you extra hungry, come supper time. That's why the friendly folks at Red Lobster will add a free Maine lobster tail to any adult dinner entrée. Just remember to head over to the restaurant's Facebook page to pick up your printable coupon. (You can also receive a coupon by signing up with Red Lobster's Fresh Catch Club.)

  • CVS
    free CVS batteries

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: Every parent's worst holiday nightmare starts with the phrase "batteries not included." Though holiday crunch time is still a few weeks away, CVS wants to help you avoid that under-the-tree panic attack now. On Thanksgiving, stop by the in-store coupon center to print out a coupon you can redeem for a free CVS AA or AAA battery 4-pack. Squirrel those bad boys away, and that's one more Christmas crisis averted.

  • Fred Meyer
    Fred Meyer freebie

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: Early morning shopping can leave you dragging, but Fred Meyer retail locations will have a treat for bleary-eyed Black Friday deal-seekers. The stores will provide free doughnuts and coffee from 5 a.m. to noon, so even if you're not first in line you can still score this freebie.

  • Bass Pro Shops
    free Santa photo

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: Getting your picture taken on Santa's lap is a very early coming-of-age ritual for many boys and girls. For some, the rite is terrifying; to others, it offers the chance to experience something magical. Unfortunately for parents, this timeless tradition too often comes with a hefty price tag. Not so at Bass Pro Shops, where your child can get his or her picture taken with Santa Claus for free. Happy holidays, indeed!

  • Staples
    free Staples paper

    Status: Confirmed

    Freebie: While many Black Friday freebies are a nice perk, few are actually "useful" in the everyday sense of the word. Ever the pragmatists, the folks at Staples are offering two Thanksgiving freebies that you're bound to use: a ream of Staples 8.5x11" multipurpose paper and a pack of Staples Photo Supreme 8.5x11" double-sided matte paper. There's a limit of two of each item per customer, and they're each free after mail-in rebate.

The latest CVS sales circular is for Sunday, November 24 through Tuesday, November 26. I wonder what they've got planned for the day before Thanksgiving.

There's another Staples after-rebate freebie: a pack of five Pentel R.S.V.P. pens in assorted colors. There's a limit of one rebate for this, though. Staples also has a couple of other free paper offers but they require you to purchase other paper to get the free paper.

(Pssst... get rid of the "mail-in" in the "free after mail-in rebate" in the deal.)
Shoe Carnival's is true
Greg the Gruesome
Those Staples rebates are Staples Easy Rebates, so you don't have to mail in anything; you can just submit the required info online. Even better, there's a limit of two (not just one) of each rebate per household. (Staples seems to offer this ream of paper for free after "instant savings" and Easy Rebate often, though.)

Hopefully, that CVS ExtraCare Coupon will become available for sending to your ExtraCare card via That way, you don't have to worry about the in-store coupon center being out of paper or out of order, or there being a line of people waiting to get their coupon.
