It’s a time of thanksgiving, a time where we come together for a moment to share our thanks of family, friends, togetherness, and then turn right around and elbow the person standing next to you, just so you can get that big screen tv before they do. Of course, this isn’t everyone, some of us would rather stay at home and shop Internet deals.
No people, meaning no crowds, no long lines to wait in, no one to trample over you when the Walmart doors open. It’s just you, your computer, and that index finger clicking away to find the best deals on everything you’ve been waiting on to finally go on sale.
Whether you’re an avid hunter, like getting away on family trips in the woods, sailing off into the sunset on your next big fishing adventure, or watching the big game on a 75″ 4k TV, there’s a deal out there for you. And we’re here to help you hunt them down, so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your recliner.

Free shipping on orders over $99, deals on top brand names, like Vertex, TruSpec, Crimson Trace, and 5.11.
Palmetto State Armory
It’s no secret, we’re pro Palmetto State Armory. Why? Because they offer cheaper guns and accessories to those who don’t need or want to pay for fancy. Unfortunately, this means they can often be out of stock on the good stuff, meaning you’ll have to keep an eye out when things do come back in stock. Despite PSA’s already low prices, they’re still offering some pretty good deals, which started on November 22.
Primary Arms has started early on the Black Friday deals, as well. If you’re looking for deals on weapon accessories, you can most definitely find them. Magpul on your Christmas list? Primary Arms, does in fact, have some pretty good sales on Magpul magazines, and so much more.
Of course, Amazon is going to have sales. You’ll find everything from Thanksgiving sales, Black Friday Sales, and Cyber Monday. If there’s something you’ve been wanting on all year long, chances are, you’ll find it on sale on Amazon. You won’t have to fight the crowds, or that angry mom, you just need a source of payment and internet access.
In-Store Black Friday Deals
Unfortunately, big retailers have found ways to make sure you come into their stores. They do this by telling buyers they can only get top deals on products in-store, and that they won’t find the same sale price online. That’s really unfortunate, because there are plenty of people who don’t care how big a sale is, they aren’t going to even walk outside their front door on Black Friday, let alone drive all the way downtown, fight doorway traffic, risk the item not being there, and then stand in line for an hour waiting to checkout.
However, for those who are willing to venture out, here’s some of the stores only offering the big discounts to in-store customers.
Bass Pro and Cabela’s
Normally, we’d separate two giant stores, like that of Bass Pro and Cabela’s, but Bass Pro bought Cabelas out a few years ago. As a result, chances are, you’re getting the same stuff for the same prices, no matter which store you walk into.
The two stores are actually offering three big sales opportunities. The first sale will actually be on Thanksgiving. In which case, we’d like to take a moment to say thank you to all of the workers who are taking time away from their own families to ring up customers. Sadly, we know not all customers are exactly pleasant, especially around the holidays, so thank you for putting up with all of that.
The Thanksgiving sale will be from 0800 to 1800. After that, the doors will close to get ready for the second sale start time, Black Friday 2019 0500 to 1100. If you go between these times, you’ll have the opportunity to get some of the doorbusters. However, if you go after 11, the doorbuster will be gone. You can keep shopping until 2100 on Friday, you just won’t get those big doorbuster sales.
Finally, there’s a third sale you can take advantage of; a five-day sale from Wednesday, November 27 to Sunday, December 1.
Disclaimer: All items will be in limit quantities and you cannot do rainchecks.
Black Friday Shopping Tips
Believe it or not, there’s a technique to the madness, or at least we’d like to think so. If you’re a true, hardcore shopper in search of deals, you might already be doing this stuff. For the rest of us, here are a few tips to help you find the best deals during the season of sales.
Look at Online Sales First
It’s no longer a secret that you can get deals online. It’s true, some stores give away the best deals in-person, but this isn’t always the case. Take a look online to first, see how much the regular price of what you want is, and then compare it to holiday sale prices. This way you can see if retailers are intentionally raising prices just so they can lower them and make you think it’s a sale. Also, it might save you all the hassle of going in-store. Another thing to keep in mind, the best sales are not always on Black Friday. Check out Cyber Monday Sales too.
Guess what? A lot of stores start their Black Friday sales early. Take some of the stores we’ve listed above. A few of them have already started handing out sales. Some stores even close the doors completely during Thanksgiving, like REI, who offers their biggest sales prior to the season.
Do Your Research
Know what it is you want. Some people walk through the doors of Walmart just knowing they want sales. Unfortunately, this leads to buying more than you want or need, which means you actually end up spending more than you should. Know what you want, do research on that item. Know how much it normally costs, look at reviews to see if it’s worth the deal, and then go hunting for it. Look to see where the best deals are. You might be able to get a better deal in-store on Black Friday, but you might be able to get a better deal at Amazon on Cyber Monday, if you’re willing to wait a few extra days.
Prices change because sale prices change. Some stores offer better deals as the week goes on, others offer the best deals at the beginning of the week. Keep an eye out on what stores are offering deals, and see if they list their sale prices early. Wednesday and Thursday might have your best prices, but it might also be on Monday.
Remember: Black Friday is no longer the only day, or even the best day to get the best deals. Some stores are offering huge sales all week long.
