Kohl’s 2012 Black Friday ad is here and is the biggest so far of the year. With 64 pages containing 998 items, this sale is gigantic. Kohl’s will be opening its stores at midnight on Thursday the 22nd and stay open until midnight on Black Friday, giving shoppers a full 24 hours of Black Friday madness. The stores will then reopen at 6am Saturday, continuing the Black Friday sales until midnight.
Kohl’s “Operation Early Bird” will start when stores open at midnight on Thursday with 500 doorbusters that will be good until 1pm on Black Friday. This early bird specials are marked with big red price cuts on the pages of the Kohl’s ad.
In addition to in-store sales, Kohl’s will begin its online Black Friday sale at 12:01 CST on Wednesday morning.

One more important note about this sale. Kohl’s will be giving $15 of Kohl’s cash for every $50 spent in a single transaction from Wednesday til Sunday. This Kohl’s cash coupon, however, has to be redeemed at Kohl’s between Nov. 26th (the Monday after Black Friday weekend) and Dec. 3rd, giving you only a week to figure out how to use the coupon.
Toys and apparel are the highlights of the Kohl’s ad. Remember, though, that toy prices often drop significantly right before Christmas Day (until the toy is popular, in which case the prices increase) and that winter apparel will be deeply discounted in January and the months of the new year as retailers make room for their new spring collections.
