While Black Friday is clearly one of the biggest shopping holidays in the US, Boxing Day tends to offer even deeper sales north of the border for Canadians. But over the past few years more and more Canadian retailers are adopting the popular American tradition, and this year is no exception.
Like in the U.S, major retailers are offering week long deals leading right up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Target and Future Shop, among others, have already launched early pre-Black Friday sales. Others, like Canadian Tire, will be kicking off deals starting on the 27th and running them through the weekend.
Best Buy has a number of Sony, Samsung and LG HDTV’s on sale through this week, as well as up to $200 off Retina Macbook Pros and other PC laptops. Come Friday the retailer will be offering GoPro discounts as well as a PS4 with The Last of US Remastered and GTA V for $449 ($520 value). We will also see a 50-inch Vizio smart HDTV under $500 and PC laptop discounts. Many of Best Buy’s Black Friday deals are set to begin at 11:59pm on November 27th.
Walmart is already offering discounts across pretty much every product category from HDTVs and headphones to home goods, tools, toys and much more. Walmart is also expected to have some of the best gaming deals around come Friday including a PlayStation 4 with The Last of Us and a $75 Walmart Gift Card for $449.99 ($525 value) and the Xbox One with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and a $50 Walmart Gift Card for $349 ($450 value). There will also be PS4 and Xbox One games starting at $24.99 including Watch Dogs, The Evil Within, Titanfall and more. Deals kick off midnight on November 28th.
Amazon.ca announced 18 days of Black Friday deals counting down to the end of this week with deals across all product categories. The online retailer has launched both Black Friday and Cyber Monday storefronts with up to 50% off games like GTA V, Watch Dogs, and AC: Black Flag, as well as up to 70% off HBO Complete Series Box Sets, and much more.
