Meijer Black Friday 2015
The 2015 Meijer Black Friday ad is here! We’ve flipped through the pages to help you find the best deals. Check out the highlights below.
Meijer is not running a Black Friday weekend sale — it is running three Black Friday weekend sales! There are three separate Black Friday 2015 ads for the discount department megastore Meijer: one for Thanksgiving Day sales, one for Black Friday sales and another for Black Saturday sales. That’s 68 pages of ads, so let’s highlight the best of all three.
Meijer opens at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and its 28-page Thanksgiving ad offers doorbusters for the early birds who aren’t stuck at home cooking turkey. A 49-inch Element LED HDTV is nearly 65% off at just $169.99, quite a bargain for a TV regularly priced at $469.99. Beats headphones are 50% off at just $99.97. Quite a few other Samsung HDTVs are marked down by hundreds of dollars, while Mongoose kids bicycles, a Sportspower inflatable bounce house and oodles of name-brand toys are slashed up to 50% off.

Meijer’s 32-page Black Friday ad is highlighted by the 55-inch Element HDTV, 58% off its regular price at just $249.99. The Syma Sky Thunder D44 Dragonfly drone is half off at just $19.99. Meijer’s Black Friday deals offer some nice discounts on apparel, most of which is not name brand. But there are some great exceptions: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Star Wars” T-shirts are just $5 and kids “Frozen” pajamas are $10. Men’s Champion hoodies and activewear are buy one, get one free, while Hanes underwear and various cold-weather accessories are buy one get one for $1. Black Friday at Meijer also kicks off at 6 a.m.
Ready for more? Black Saturday is an event at Meijer as well, with an eight-page ad featuring Santa Bucks coupons good for up to $20 off one item. The Black Saturday sales are primarily holiday items, with Christmas trees up to half off, gift wrap 25% off, plus some deep discounts on vacuum cleaners and kitchen appliances.
Meijer Black Friday Deals from 2014
Black Friday was a three-day affair at Meijer in 2014 as well, also with a 6 a.m. starting time. The focus was more on household items than tech and home entertainment gear, and the best deals were Wrangler jeans for nearly 50% off and men’s Caterpillar work boots for 60% off. There were deals on Samsung and Amazon Fire tablets, but the discounts could only be claimed “on your next shopping trip.”
