Cyber Monday Deals 2012

Didn’t go shopping on Black Friday? Feel like you missed out on some great deals? Don’t. Lucky you for evading the crowds and throngs of people fighting over TVs, laptops, game consoles and panty bins. You get even luckier today, because it happens to be Cyber Monday, the biggest online shopping day in history. Exaggerating much? No. For the past 2 years, Cyber Monday has been the biggest online shopping day, and this year will undoubtedly continue the tradition and make it the third year in a row.

Cyber Monday Deals 2012Most people find that it’s easier to just get on their computers, browse the internet, peruse the deals, add to cart and click checkout. No battling of crowds, getting pushed, spending money on gas to get to the mall, or wasting 20 minutes of your life trying to find a parking spot. Yes, some people do enjoy the interaction with others, and the adrenaline rush of finding the last item in stock hidden on a shelf no one thought to look…but for those that don’t, Cyber Monday enables you to snag some great deals with a mouse click, in the comfort of your home, or even on your lunch break during a busy day at work.

Many stores begin their deals at midnight, and offer extra incentives to ensure that you make your purchase. Some places will offer free shipping, 40-80% off merchandise, or coupons for a certain amount off of your bill once you meet the required amount threshold (ie $25 off $125). It can be overwhelming and exhausting to try and remember all of the online stores that are having Cyber Monday promotions.

Black Friday Ads: Super Stores

Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the entire year in the United States. This year, many stores are opening their doors on Thanksgiving night, which means right after Thanksgiving dinner, people will be bundling up and heading out the door to line up outside of their favorite store. Of course, some people line up 2 days before Thanksgiving to secure their spot and guarantee them the item they desire, but it’s not impossible to get what you want even if you’re not lined up from 3 days before Black Friday.

PennySaverUSA has compiled all of the Black Friday ads for the major super stores here, to save you the time of scouring the internet to find the Black Friday deals. We’ll highlight our picks for the best Black Friday deals at each store, and provide you with the links to view the ads for yourself.

Walmart is infamously known as possibly being the craziest place to shop at on Black Friday. From stampedes, to fighting over xboxes, it gets out of hand.

This year, along with opening their doors at 8pm Thanksgiving night, Walmart also has a new promotion called the ’1 Hour In-Stock Guarantee’ on 3 of their doorbuster items. From 10pm-11pm on Thursday, November 22nd, Walmart guarantees that the three items featured for their 10pm doorbusters will be in stock. If any of the items sell out in the first hour, you can purchase a Guarantee Card that ensures you will get the item at the Black Friday price before Christmas.

The three items eligible for this promotion are:

  1. Apple iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi for $399 plus you get a $75 Walmart gift card
  2. LG BLu-ray Plaer for $38

Few things warm our hearts here at PennySaverUSA more than freebies. It should come as no surprise then that Free Friday is our favorite day of the week! The latest edition of our popular blog feature highlights several fantastic freebies. Take a look:

For the second straight week, Burger King has earned a Free Friday mention. Today only, you can get free fries at any participating location! No purchase is required and no coupon is necessary. Just stroll right in to your local BK and say you want your free fries.


Free Friday coincides with Free Shipping Day!

Get a free Sinus Rinse Nasal Wash.

It’s about time for a pair of healthy freebies this Free Friday.

The second of the Free Friday freebies is also dedicated to dads. IKEA is giving away free breakfast to fathers on Sunday. Might as well grab some free grub before getting some new furniture.

Shifting gears a bit, the next of the Free Friday freebies is definitely not edible, but is very useful nonetheless. Benjamin Moore is offering a free 2 oz. color sample of its paint. The coupon expires on June 30.

Another cool home improvement-type Free Friday freebie is from Home Depot. This Saturday, the store is holding a free kids workshop. The child will make a mini custom toolbox and get to keep it and give it to dad as a Father’s Day gift.

Walgreens notches the next of the Free Friday freebies with a deal for a free 8×10 photo collage. Just go to their site and use the coupon code 1Freebie to order your print. If you pick it up in your local store, you can even avoid shipping costs.


We close out this installment of Free Friday freebies with a reminder from daily deal site The best and most local deal site in California is handing out a $5 credit to any new member that signs up through the weekend. You can then use that $5 to increase the already huge discounts the site offers on food, car services, hair salons and more. Heck, you might even be able to use the credit to get some free food with one of the site’s $5 for $10 of food restaurant deals.

Please give us your feedback of this week’s Free Friday freebies in the comments and have a great weekend!
