Black Friday 2019 Ads Digest (Camera and Photo priority edition)

Welcome to a tradition unlike any other. The Black Friday camera and photography Ads digest here at the Noisy blog 🙂 The BF Ads are no longer the cornerstone of Black Friday but they inform of deals and what to expect or beat at other online retailers as we head to the final stretch of the year…

UPDATE: this post is a digest of the leaked and teased BF ads. For the latest actual live deals, follow our dedicated Camera Deals blog and/or if you are a fan of RSS, it also offers a FREE full-text RSS feed

BF Ads 2019 TL:DR: A bit of a TL:DR, the best deals can be found at Kohl’s because it offers $15 “Kohls Cash” on every $50 spent (between November 25-29) and at Target which offers free Target gift cards with select purchases and 5% back if you pay with the Target RED cards…

NOTE that “Kohls Cash” is not cash, it’s more of a promotional coupon. It typically lasts only for a few designated dates after it is issued and must be used within the designated time period. Regular Kohls shoppers have no trouble spending them but if you are not a Kohls shopper, make sure there are enough things of interest to spend it on before buying there…

ON PRICING: as it is the nature with MAP and price-matches, the prices of standard kits are likely to be the same across most retailers, eg Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Sears, etc. The additional freebies (eg Target gift cards) and rewards promotions (eg Kohls Cash) may vary though…

LATEST UPDATE: November 17 in 2019: the digest is LIVE… WordPress just switched to the new horrible (?) “Blocks” editor, so chances of errors are elevated…
