There's no clearer representation of FOMO for Canadians than browsing American Black Friday flyers, as all four flyers feature some excellent deals on popular products like the Instant Pot, PlayStation 4, Xbox One S and as per tradition, lots of televisions.

The easiest way for Canadians can take advantage of American Black Friday is by visiting the States on November 24. Target is the only retailer that officially ships to Canada from their online store, but there's currently no indication if they'll feature Black Friday deals on their site and the experience is not ideal.

These flyers do provide a little insight as to what we could see for Canadian Black Friday. Specifically, PS4 and Xbox One S consoles, Google Home smart speakers, Dyson vacuums and Beats headphones are some items that are consistent across each flyer, which indicates that they might also be featured in Canada.

We'll keep our eyes peeled for Canadian Black Friday flyers and have them as soon as they're released, so be sure to visit the RedFlagDeals Black Friday page for more Black Friday news, flyers and tips!

      Walmart is always competing, you can tell because after Target left, free shipping went from $25 to $50 (I think).

      it seems like they are difficult (impossible?) to unlock though. they force you to use their service for 12 straight months.

      if it is no contract is it still locked to a carrier? will total wireless force you to sign up for a no contract plan if it states it is a no contract purchase?

    • NOTE - If anyone is thinking of going over the border to make Black Friday Purchases... especially on tech & electronics... be sure and do your homework as to what stores / locations & hours. Stores (even in the same chain) can have differing hours during Black Friday

      And be prepared to wait in line (camp out) for the best bargains.

      Cause the reality is... these are loss leaders in very LIMITED Quantities... so more about the hype to get you into the store, than the reality of having plenty of "special sale items" available for purchase.

      BUT hey, if you score one... Congratulations. And if you don't, be sure and take a look around anyhow. We regularly shop the Big Holiday Sales in the USA... and some of the best deals on day to day stuff is not highly advertised.

      Fantastic to find something at 50% or more off American Pricing (when those prices are routinely 25% or more, cheaper than what we see here, IF we even see the item here in Canada).

      PS... Ya gotta be out of country for a minimum of 48 hours to get the best bang for your buck ($ 800 personal exemption, few restrictions, and reduced rates on Duty & Taxes if you exceed $ 800)
      Out 24 to 48 Hours and your Personal exemption is just $ 200 (and no booze or tobacco). Plus if you overspend, they eliminate the $ 200 mark, and charge you Duty & Taxes on the whole amount not just the overage

      EDIT - ADD

      Should also mention that Canadian Customs works in Cdn Dollars. So your Personal Declaration should add all your US receipts together (including taxes) and then convert to Cdn Dollars at today's Exchange Rate. And DO KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS... this is very important. In fact it is best to have them all in one place and available for a Customs Agent to look at should you be sent onto Secondary Inspection. If you don't have a receipt, that is not a good thing... as under The Act, it gives Canada Customs the ability to access value of an item based on Cdn Market Value (which could be a heck of a lot higher than what you actually paid). Any Cdn Taxes & Duties owing are calculated on top of the Total Cdn Value of your Goods.

      I believe they're talking about the Google Home Mini. It's $29 but comes with a $10 gift card. Pretty wild at that price.

    • Will Target Ship To Canada? Tried to add an iPad to my order and it wouldn't ship.

      $529 for a 64gb 10.5" Pro?? That's like ~$700 after tax/duties.

      Target does ship to canada, however certain items have export restrictions and will not ship. Total price includes duties, shipping and taxes. I bought my amazon fire tv through them and had no issues at all.

      What really sucks is some of the details as to why it didn't last. Automated inventory management system had some serious issues - hence you would often see lots of empty shelves.

      I don't know that much either about cameras but I am going to get this model for the wife. Was thinking between this and Nikon d3400. I will order and send to my mailbox in Niagara Falls. Thinking it will cost $449.99 x 1.08 (tax rate) =485.99. with the conversion rate of say 1.27 x 485.99 is 617.20.
      Can't beat that.

      They were bleeding out money due to all the price matching happening on price errors.

      Also tons of nutty deals.

      I remember all the Wii U consoles, Wii U games, XBox One controllers sold for almost half price.

      Plus the stacking of gift cards in top of already stellar deals.

      There was no oversight.

      iPads being sold on Boxing Day, with the gift card amount reduced onto the price of the item and then also provided a gift card....

      Remember a ton of the employees were former Best Buy/Futureshop employees that had been let go from closed locations. There were used to a lot of processes being handed to them to execute, I think Target Canada ran on a more "go figure it out."

      At this point it lets me add the white google mini, but not the charcoal, and shows a canadian price of $65.54. Will have to check that day, or maybe head over myself, to grab a couple.

      Maybe I should start adding them to the cart now? I wonder if Amazon.com will price match many of these items.

      Amazon enforces a no price match/price guarantee (except on TVs).

      If you aren't happy, they just tell you to buy at that store or ship back your unit.

      I am not talking about requesting for a PM, I'm talking about Amazon scouring competitor sites and matching their prices without any customer input. I see it all the time on SD where soon after a deal is posted, Amazon matches the price.
