Black Friday Freebies 2018

Where to Get the Best Black Friday Freebies This Year

Updated for Black Friday 2018

While there are a lot of great deals to be had on Black Friday, my favorite deals are the Black Friday freebies. Black Friday freebies are free stuff you get just for showing up to a store or sending in a rebate —  no purchase necessary.

The Black Friday freebies for 201 include free gift cards, health care items, appliances, tote bags, sporting goods, coupons, and more.

Be sure to pay attention to the date and even time when you can get these deals. Some of these are true Black Friday freebies, and you can get them early on the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving. Some of these freebies are actually only available on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, and you could miss them by waiting for Black Friday.
