Well, I guess it’s that time of year once again. Black Friday shopping lies just days away. So, which stores are offering the best deals for 2018?
WalletHub gives us a new list of all the places you’ll need to know about as America heads to the stores to get the best deals for Christmas.
Black Friday is changing with many stores opening earlier than ever after the Thanksgiving break and many are offering big deals and deep discounts both inside their brick and mortar stores as well as online.
WalletHub crunched the numbers to give us the heads up ahead of Black Friday:
WalletHub surveyed nearly 7,000 deals from 35 of the biggest U.S. retailers’ 2018 Black Friday ad scans. Below, we’ve listed the stores offering the largest advertised discounts in various product categories such as “Jewelry” and “Appliances.” Read on for the full list, our methodology and shopping wisdom from WalletHub’s experts.
The top stores in WalletHub’s reckoning shows the top 10 to abe Belk, then JC Penny, Stage, Kohl’s, New York & Company, Payless Shores, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Macy’s, Fred Mayer, and Shopko.
The top ten discounts on merchandise are as follows:
Belk is giving a 68.9% on items
JC Penny = 65.1%
Stage = 62.1%
Kohl’s = 60.8%
New York & Company = 54.5%
Payless Shores = 50.3%
Dick’s Sporting Goods = 49.9%
Macy’s = 48.7%

According to the survey, the best discounts will be in Jewelry this year. But apparel and accessories and video games are also seeing deep discounts.
“Black Friday shopping is one of America’s most treasured holiday traditions. But there’s always a bit of hassle involved: Shoppers have to get up early, stand in endless lines at stores and try to find deals through hordes of other shoppers — all in the name of savings,” WalletHub wrote.
