The best Black Friday freebies
If you're planning on shopping in-store the day after Thanksgiving, leave some extra space in your shopping bag for these freebies.
At its core, Black Friday is all about saving money, and there's no better way to save money than to get stuff for free! Below, we've rounded up all the Black Friday deals featuring Buy-One-Get-Ones (BOGOs), gift cards, and outright free items that we could find. Note that some of these offers are only rumors, and we've marked them as such. Be sure to bookmark this page and check back often, as we'll be adding even more Black Friday freebies as we come across them.
Freebie: This doorbuster freebie was actually the first 2013 Black Friday ad: a free JCPenney 2013 Snow Globe. In response to the frustrated outcry of shoppers who went home globeless in 2012, JCPenney has brought back the popular keepsake. No word yet on when you'll have to show up in-store to bag one, though, so stay tuned for more details on how to get yours.
Seattle's Best Coffee
Freebie: Whether you're standing in line at midnight on Black Friday or heading back to the daily grind on Friday morning, Seattle's Best Coffee wants to perk you up with a free sample of its medium roast coffee. Just head on over to its Facebook page anytime after November 13 and sign up to have that liquid caffeine delivered directly to your mailbox.
Half Price Books
Freebie: Once again, Half Price Books offers up a Black Friday freebie two-fer. In addition to a free $5 gift card, the first 100 customers to cross the threshold at 7 am will get a free tote bag, perfect for hauling all your Black Friday loot. Better yet, one lucky doorbusting consumer could find a surprise in their tote bag: an extra $100 gift card!
Freebie: If you're hoping to pick up some killer kicks this Black Friday, then swing by Shoe Carnival on Thanksgiving. When the doors open at 6 pm, the first 100 customers will get a free gift card worth at least $10. What's more, one lucky early bird might score a free $100 gift card. As if you needed an excuse to go shoe shopping.
Freebie: Although human presents tend to be at the top of our Black Friday shopping list, PetSmart wants to make sure that your favorite feline or canine isn't forgotten during the biggest shopping day of the year. For the first 100 shoppers, retail stores are giving away free pet stockings pre-stuffed with dog and cat treats and $130 worth of in-store coupons.

Love freebies when I was in college. Not anymore, my time worth way more than those "freebies" and "black Friday deals".
These freebies do suck, except for the PetSmart one, and the Gamestop freebie can be used to donate to Toys for Tots <3
