Black Friday Predictions: JCPenney Black Friday Ad for 2017

Black Friday Predictions: JCPenney Black Friday Ad for 2017

It seems like you can never have too many jeans, hand towels, boots or kitchen essentials. Fortunately, Black Friday is just around the corner, and JCPenney is here to help. They’ll be serving up some of the best can’t-miss deals to help ease your conscience and keep you within your holiday budget. Here are some of the deals you can expect to see this year at JCPenney.

When will we see the 2017 JCPenney Black Friday ad?

To better understand when the JCPenney Black Friday ad may become available for 2017, we have to review when their Black Friday ad publication dates from the past few years:

  • Monday, November 11, 2013
  • Sunday, November 9, 2014
  • Monday, November 9, 2015
  • Friday, November 4, 2016

Looking at their track record, JCPenney does a pretty good job preventing leaks from occurring with their Black Friday ads. Last year's ad was released when customers downloaded the app, and we don’t predict this year to be any different. This year we expect the ad to arrive Monday, November 4th.

Once the JC Penney’s ad arrives, you’ll be able to find it in our 2017 Black Friday Shopping Guide.

What will JCPenney’s Black Friday hours be?

After crossing over into starting deals Thanksgiving Day in 2013, JCPenney began opening earlier and earlier each year. JCPenney has stuck with opening at 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day for the past two years, and we do not expect that to change this year. Like last year, you can expect to see similar in-store deals offered online starting Thanksgiving Day and lasting until Friday at 5 p.m. So if there’s a must have item that you have your eye on, there's no need to rush from the dinner table to your local JCPenney store. You can order that same item directly from your phone from the comfort of your home, in-between plates.

UPDATE: JCPenny will open at 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 23rd, Thanksgiving Day, for Black Friday.  Black Friday sale prices will be available online beginning Sunday, November 19th.  Also, JCPenny will host a "Black Friday Prices Now" sale from November 16th-18th, offering up Black Friday prices on select items within pajamas, towels, cookware, jewelry and accessories.

Like the 2015 and 2016 ads, you can expect the 2017 Black Friday ad to include a similar layout and similar deals. Need a refresher? Check out the deals in last year's Black Friday ad.

What to expect from JCPenney’s Black Friday Doorbusters


Rebates Galore
JCPenney seems to love to offer rebates on kitchen appliances, and we don’t predict that to change this year. You can expect to see a wide variety of kitchen appliances, such as slow cookers, griddles, cookware sets and coffee makers, on sale with rebates. This is the perfect time to replace that old appliance or purchase the one you’ve had your eye on for quite some time.

You’ll find great deals on jeans for everyone in the family here. From Arizona’s for girls to Levi’s for Men, JCPenney is well-known for offering great deals on quality denim. The jeans range in price between $10 and $46.99, depending on who they are for, the style and the brand. We expect them to run a similar, if not the same, deal this year.

JCPenney always seems to have a Keurig on sale in its Black Friday ads. In 2015 and 2016 the Keurig 2.0 K250 Compact Brewer was on sale for $99.99. While we cannot predict that same model will be available this year, we do anticipate that a Keurig will be on sale during Black Friday around that $99.99 price point. You can also expect to see at least one more Keurig model offered at a price point around $89.99 with a mail-in rebate. This is consistent with the deal on the K-Cup Brewer K45 Elite offered in 2015, and in 2016, the K55 Brewer.

Pinnacle Hard Case Luggage
Toss that old luggage out and get a great deal on something new. Priced around $40, $39.99 in 2015 and $40 in 2016, the 20” Pinnacle hard case luggage is a steal. Also offered in 24” and 28” at a higher price point, it’s the perfect piece of luggage for an upcoming weekend getaway or family vacation. We anticipate that JCPenney will offer this same deal again this year.
