Black Friday Predictions: Kohl's Black Friday Ad for 2017

Black Friday Predictions: Kohl's Black Friday Ad for 2017
R

Black Friday is easily our favorite time of year at Kohl's, when you'll find more than a week of the year's best coupons, stack them onto the already low-priced Black Friday deals, and earn extra Kohl's Cash in the process. Win, win, and win.

When will we see the 2017 Kohl's Black Friday ad?

These were the ad publication dates from Kohl's for the last four years:

  • Wednesday November 12, 2013
  • Saturday November 8, 2014
  • Friday November 6, 2015
  • Thursday November 3, 2016

Last year, the Kohl's Black Friday ad landed on November 3, which happened to be a Thursday. Looking back on the last few years, there's no hard and fast rule we can go by to know precisely when we can expect to see the 2017 circular. While leaks are possible, they've also historically happened relatively close to the intended publication date. Our hunch is that Kohl's might publish their Black Friday ad on or near Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

Once the Kohl's ad arrives, you'll find it in our 2017 Black Friday Shopping Guide.

What will Kohl's Black Friday hours be?

Kohl's has opened its doors to in-store shoppers at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day for the past three years, and we think they'll keep those hours again for Black Friday 2017.

However, the bulk of their sale is available beginning on Monday during Thanksgiving Week, and our deal experts will be posting the best Kohl's Black Friday deals throughout. Plus, with the exception of a few doorbusters that are only available in-store, the entire sale will be available online even while the doors are closed. Unless you're set on grabbing an American Girl doll, there really isn't any reason you need to leave Thanksgiving dinner for this one.

What to Expect from Kohl's Black Friday Doorbusters

kohls-black-friday-ad-2015-vs-2016

We expect that we'll see a lot of the same Black Friday deals in the Kohl's ad as we did last year, which should come as no surprise to our long-time readers. Here are a few highlights.

4K Television
Not normally a player in the electronics category, Kohl's always puts up a small television from a second-tier brand like Westinghouse or APEX. It's always available in-store only, in limited quantities. Last year, it was a 49" 4K HDTV from Haier for $249.99. We're betting that Kohl's keeps the 4K theme, and the price point here somewhere between $199.99 and $249.99, depending on the size.

Diamond Stud Earrings
Kohl's has put at least one pair of diamond studs on its Black Friday ad cover since 2006, when it listed a pair of 1/2-ct. white gold studs for $99.99. The price has slowly crept up just about every year since, until 2015 when $99.99 was the Black Friday doorbuster price on a pair that was just 1/4-ct., up $34 from its 2007 price of $64.99. That $99.99 price tag was repeated in 2016, though that particular pair didn't make the cover. We think we'll see the 1/4-ct. diamond studs at $99.99 yet again in 2017.

50% off Select Toys
You'll always find an assortment of classic toys on the cover to advertise the Black Friday doorbuster of 50% off toys from select brands. The 2016 list included Fisher-Price, Playskool, Little Tikes, Step 2, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Nerf, Tonka, Play-Doh, Jumping Beans, Imaginext, and Little People. This deal has roots that go way, way back, and we'll expect Kohl's to stick with tradition.

* In 2013 and 2014, the Kohl's Black Friday ads listed them as "$199.99 + extra 10% off," but dropped the extra discount in 2015. Plus, in the past, we've been able to apply additional coupons to bring the price down even further. In the last two years, discounting restrictions from KitchenAid have effectively cut off the likelihood of the extra-deep discounts we've become accustomed to seeing on Black Friday. However, the price will still be a good one, and the extra Kohl's Cash you'll earn helps take the sting out of missing out on the glory days.
