US Black Friday 2021 Flyers from Kohl's, Macy's, Target, Walmart + More

By Simon Hung

Black Friday is fast-approaching and you can see some of this year's American Black Friday flyers from stores including Kohl's, Macy's, Target and Walmart now on RedFlagDeals.

The Canada-US border was re-opened for non-essential travel on November 8, making cross-border shopping an option for fully-vaccinated Canadians this year. While it is possible, travelling stateside for Black Friday may present additional headaches, as wait times at the border are lengthy, large crowds will be present inside most stores and a negative COVID-19 molecular test is required before re-entry into Canada, which can add upwards of $200.00 to your trip (per person).

One of the most notable changes with this year's slate of American flyers is an increased focus on mid-range items like headphones, small appliances and toys – televisions typically occupy multiple pages in American Black Friday flyers, but there are noticeably fewer televisions featured in this year's lineup of flyers across the board. The likely explanation is the global semiconductor chip shortage, which has impacted the supply of several big-ticket electronics like televisions, computers and video game consoles.

Speaking of video game consoles, Walmart US is the only retailer to advertise stock of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – two of the most sought-after products over the past two years. The consoles will be available online starting November 22 and while it's unlikely that Canadians will be able to get one from Walmart US, it does indicate that very limited stock may pop up at Canadian retailers during Black Friday.

JCPenney – November 19 to 28

Kohl's – November 21 to 26

Macy's – November 23 to 27

Target – November 21 to 27

Walmart – November 22 to 28

      Also, rumor is that as of Nov 30th, PCR tests will no longer be required for when returning to Canada after trips of less than 72 hrs.
      OP can I know where you’ve seen that rumor? I can’t find anything on it

      Can you elaborate on the PCR test no longer needed as of 11/30 rumor?

    • Why would the PCR test be removed from a trip of under 72 hours but be needed on longer trips? I must be missing the obvious in this rumour

      It was being discussed early this morning on a Toronto radio station. Apparently if true they will be making an announcement later this week or next week. PCR tests will be dropped if staying less than 72 hrs.

      Because right now on trips less than 72 hours you take the PCR test in Canada before you leave. Which is ludicrous because it offers absolutely no assurance that you didn’t contract Covid on your trip.

      How is that any different to taking a longer trip? There's equal (daily) risk of getting Covid in less than 72 hours as there is for a longer trip (I do agree though that allowing PCR test pre-departure is utterly stupid)

      I’m not saying anything about RISK of contracting Covid. But the POINT of testing is to determine infection. The current testing for trips less than 72 hours is pointless. Testing prior to reentry following longer duration trips at least offers some indication that Covid wasn’t contracted during the stay outside Canada, at least up to the point of testing.

      That's what I'm saying as well...for consistency (and any real value), testing should be done at the port of departure irrespective of the trip duration...otherwise, might as well scrap testing altogether

      If you’re talking rapid antigen testing with 15 minute results at the port of arrival…then yes we’re on the same page.

      Wait we don't need a test to enter US right? So with this change we have to take a test in Canada and be back in 72 hours? If so do we have to take rt-pcr in Canada before departure? IIRC Canada does not accept the antigen test..

      Ah sorry, I did mean the port of arrival

      That said, I'm talking all tests really (as in, either scrap all tests altogether or all tests - PCR, Antigen or otherwise - need to occur at port of arrival).

      Having tests taken at the port of departure for a short return trip makes absolutely no sense whatsoever

      You need an antigen test for USA. But if you're going for a short trip of less than 72 hours (which is what the discussion is about) then currently you need a PCR test in Canada shortly before your first flight so your test results remain valid for your complete journey (otherwise you'd need antigen/PCR for USA and another PCR for Canada)

    • Is it me or deals seems lackluster? Only thing interesting in the flyer is the PS5 and XBX being in stock for the sale. There is a strong possibility that retailers in Canada will also do the same and have been building inventory for BF.

      Lol.  Yeah, because RFD is overwhelmed with US deals at the moment.  If you or others don't like the thread, just scroll by it.  No one is forcing you to click on the thread.

      BTW, maybe with border not requiring a PCR test if  less than 72hrs, I might post more threads.
