Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and that means Black Friday is just around the bend!

We've seen ads leaked and some even launched already! So, let's break it down by category to help you score the best prices!

First up, CLOTHES!

At Kohl's, you'll earn $15 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend. When you click on the ad, go to pages 36-37, and you'll see examples of the discounts, up to 40 percent off Under Armour and 30 percent off Nike. Check out pages 42-43, and you'll find that some winter apparel will be up to 60 percent off!

At New York & Company, you can score up to 50 percent off everything through Tuesday (11/20). Starting Wednesday (11/21), you'll save up to 75 percent off. The official Black Friday sale starts on Thanksgiving day and runs through 2 p.m. Friday, getting you an additional 10 percent off already reduced prices. Click here to see the ads.

You'll also see that on Sunday and Monday, everything will be on sale for up to 75 percent off and feature some free, no-minimum shipping for Cyber Monday.

Plus, New York & Company is giving away a free watch with any $75 purchase while supplies last. We are not sure how long this will be available.

To give you an idea of the savings, check out this Faux Leather Moto Jacket. I've seen variations range from almost $90 to about $150. Their new price will be $20.

At Macy's, doors open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, close at 2 a.m. Friday to reorganize. Then, doorbusters start at 6 a.m. Friday and run until 2 p.m. Click here to see the preview.

You'll see $10 off purchases of $25 or more, and $20 off purchases of $50 or more on select apparel and home items.

There are 12 items that are free after you complete a mail-in rebate, and those deals are in-store only.

For JCPenney, hours may vary by store, but I'm seeing doors opening at 2 p.m. on Thursday. Click here to see the ads.


On page 30, see 60 percent off some sport coats. On page 48, you'll see sales like 60 percent off sleepwear for kids, and it's that same number for a discount on women winter hats, gloves, scarves and gifts on page 56. Flip a few to page 64, and you'll see up to 75 percent off coats for her.


There will also be a Coupon Giveaway on Thursday only. Each store will have at least one $500 of $500 coupon (valid 11/22-12/24). One in 100 coupons will be $100 off $100 coupon (valid 11/22-12/24). Ninety-nine out of 100 coupons will be $10 off $10 (valid 11/22-11/23).  Click here for more information. You can also see fine print on the bottom of page 61 in the ads. 


In-store only through November 24, spend $100 on gift cards, and get a $25 off $25 coupon. You can see that on page 31 of the ads. 


In general, some stores may offer a gift card to you when you buy a certain amount in gift cards. My advice: Make a plan, and know what you're shopping for! 


Now, go get those deals!
