Black Friday 2010: Kohl’s

Kohl’s Black Friday ad [1] is 64 pages long!  They open Friday morning at 3 a.m. with their Doorbuster deals.  Before I get into the sale items, here are some tips on shopping at Kohls:

1.  Check online.  Kohl’s ad specifically says that some of their doorbuster deals and the bulk of their sales will be available via the web.  Usually on Black Friday they have free shipping and various coupon codes.  PLUS if you shop through ebates [2] you get a percentage cash back.  (I will post the codes and the cash back percentages on November 25th.)

2.  Bring friends.  The lines at Kohl’s are some of the longest I have ever seen on Black Friday.  When you walk in, I would just stick someone in the VERY long line and everyone else just bring them items as you pick them up.

3.  Hit the jewelry counter first.  If you want jewelry, they usually help people in the order they select numbers (like a deli).  When you walk in grab a number first thing- otherwise you will be waiting a while.

4.  Kohls cash is only available in store.  If you want to earn Kohl’s cash for your purchases (it’s kind of like a Kohl’s gift certificate) you have to shop in the store.  That benefit is not available on line. 

5.  Early bird specials don’t end up until 1 p.m.  Last year I went to Kohl’s about noon and the place was deserted.  If you want an early bird special it will still be around at noon.  You can head up to the store later and get the same great deals without the line.  The Early Bird deals will be available from 3AM – 1PM ONLY on Friday (11/26), but the All Day deals will be available all weekend.
