Posted at 12:43 PM, Oct 18, 2019

We are still almost 6 weeks way from Black Friday 2019, but Harbor Freight Tools has just released the first big ad for its sale on Friday, November 29, and running all weekend long. has posted a full scan of the Harbor Freight Ad.

The discount tool seller is traditionally the first major retailer to publish its ad for the day after Thanksgiving. And you will note it is the day after the holiday.

Unlike most big box stores, Harbor Freight is closed on Thanksgiving Day and opens at 7 a.m. Friday.

Also, if you were hoping for an ad from Best Buy, you are going to have to wait until at least Nov. 4 for that one, along with the ads from Walmart and Target, according to BF Ads.

For hardware and tool lovers, Harbor Freight in 2019 will offer some great deals, such as:

  • A 400-watt Predator emergency generator for $299 (was $359)
  • A 3-ton Daytona steel floor jack for $89 (was $129)
  • A Warrior lithium power drill for $22 (was $37)
  • A Portland pressure washer for $79 (was $99)

If you were hoping for 65-inch 4K TVs, however, you are going to have to wait a few more weeks for Best Buy and other big stores to release their ads.

As always, don't waste your money.
