Does Canada Have Black Friday Sales & Deals?

Does Canada have Black Friday? Up until a few years ago, the answer was “no.” Black Friday is the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving Day on the second Monday in October. Therefore, it really wouldn’t fit to have a Canadian “Black Friday.”

In recent years, however, some Canadian retailers have started having Black Friday sales. This is especially true for stores located near the U.S. border. These merchants have created Black Friday Canada in an attempt to stem the flow of cross-border shopping on Thanksgiving weekend. In recent years, Black Friday sales have taken place at these stores:

– Babies R Us Canada
– Bell Mobility
– Best Buy Canada
– The Brick
– Cabela’s Canada
– Canadian Tire
– Danier
– Dynamite
– EB Games
– Forever 21 Canada
– Future Shop
– Holt Renfrew
– Home Depot Canada
– Home Hardware
– Home Outfitters
– Hudson’s Bay
– IKEA Canada
– Kent Building Supplies
– London Drug
– Lowe’s Canada
– Marshalls Canada
– RW&CO.
– Sears Canada
– Shoppers Drug Mart
– Toys R Us Canada
– Walmart Canada

Of course, nearly all Canadian stores are OPEN on the U.S. Thanksgiving Day since this is not a recognized holiday in Canada. This year, there will be lots of Black Friday sales and deals to be had on both sides of the border. Then, get ready for Cyber Monday, a major shopping holiday in both Canada and here in the States.

FREE FOOD at Election Rallies & Campaigns

Who says blabbering politicians are useless? As Election Day nears, I have found political candidates and their campaigns to be a valuable source of FREE FOOD! Many candidates running for public office will offer free eats at their rallies and campaign stops as an enticement for people to show up. In just the past few weeks, I’ve come across free sandwiches, subs, pizza, doughnuts, hamburgers, hot dogs, soft drinks, bottled water, and much more!

I guess it’s kind of like those timeshare deals in Florida where you sit through the sales pitch, listen to a bunch of hot air, then are rewarded with a few free nights in one of their condos. But what the heck? It’s FREE FOOD! As everyone here knows, FREE food is GOOD food! Especially in this “challenging” economy. Find out where the upcoming campaign rallies will be held, show up and get fed for free by your local politicians!

50% Off Half Price Halloween Candy Discounts

There are 4 times per year to buy candy: immediately after Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter Sunday. Hershey, Nestle, Mars, and Wonka all create special holiday candy assortments. Packaging makes it unique to each particular holiday. After the holiday, this candy cannot be sold at full price because the packaging is now outdated. It cannot be saved and resold the following year because it would become inedible long before then. This is why Halloween candy is discounted significantly, beginning on November 1.

After Halloween candy discounts of 50% are common. Walmart, Target, Kmart, and Walgreens are good national sources. Target usually starts at 30%, but eventually gets to 50 and finally 70% in the final days. I’ve also found Kroger family stores to offer half price Halloween candy: Dillons, Fred Meyer, Fry’s Food Stores, QFC, Ralphs, Smith’s, Baker’s, City Market, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Gerbes, Jay C Food Stores, King Soopers, Owen’s, and Pay Less Super Markets. If these retailers exist in your area, RiteAid, CVS Pharmacy, Cub Foods, A&P, Albertsons, Publix, Safeway/Von’s, Osco/Jewel, and Cashwise/Coborns are also worth a shot.

Be quick to take advantage of half price Halloween candy sales! The “good stuff” always sells out within a few days. Come early and you’ll find Reese’s Pumpkins and Ghosts, Kit Kats, Twix, Milky Way, Snickers, Three Musketeers, and Baby Ruths for 50% off. Wait too long and there will be nothing left besides suckers and junk that nobody wants. November 1st is prime time for half price Halloween candy deals.

Smashburger Holiday Smash Pass $1 Entrees

Smashburger presents the Holiday Smash Pass. What’s the Smash Pass? A cool little deal that gives you $1 burgers every day for 100 days! Here’s how it works:

– Sign up for Smashburger’s SmashClub rewards program
– Pay $100 for your Holiday Smash Pass
– Every day from November 5, 2018 through February 14, 2019, show your coupon on our Smashburger Rewards app or give the cashier your account email or phone number.
– Enjoy any one entrée for FREE!

So let’s do the math: $100 for the Holiday Smash Pass divided by 100 days is just $1 per day for any of Smashburger’s delicious entrees. Even if you only eat there every other day, it’s still just $2 per meal. If you live or work near a Smashburger location, you really can’t go wrong with this deal. Start by signing up for SmashClub at

Don’t miss your chance to eat for just $1 per day during the entire holiday season! Most Smashburger restaurants will be closed Christmas Day (Tuesday, December 25.)
