First Black Friday ad of 2018 is out

Posted at 11:12 AM, Oct 05, 2018

We are still a month and a half away from Black Friday, but Harbor Freight Tools has just released the first preview ad of the big shopping day. 

What, were you expecting Best Buy? You are going to have to wait until at least Nov. 6 for that one, along with the big ads from Walmart and Target, according

BFAds has posted a full scan of the Harbor Freight ad.

The discount tool seller is traditionally the first major retailer to publish its ad for the day after Thanksgiving.

Unlike most big box stores, Harbor Freight is closed on Thanksgiving Day, and opens at a respectable 7 a.m. on Friday.

For hardware and tool lover, the store will offer some great deals, such as:

  • An 850-watt emergency generator for $499,
  • A tilting flat panel TV mount for $9.99,
  • A 21-gallon air compressor for $144,
  • A DrillMaster power grinder for $9.99,
  • HDMI cables for $1.99.

If you were hoping for deals on 65-inch 4KTV's, however, you are going to have to wait a few more weeks for the big stores to release their ads.

As always, don't waste your money.
