Thanksgiving… Black Friday… Cyber Monday– Come n’ Getcha Some!!

It’s finally here– Harbor Freight Tools’ biggest weekend of the year– bar none! So if you’ve been holding out for the best deal on a power tool, rolling tool cabinet or generator, or if you’re wondering when’s the best time to jump in and do your Christmas shopping, it’s NOW, bubeleh!

So on Thanksgiving Day, before you fall into your turkey-induced coma, swing by Harbor Freight (or jump online!) and take advantage of the hugest savings throughout the store. Think you can catch up on these deals later in the weekend? Think again! Because the specials on Thanksgiving are for ONE DAY ONLY! Just TiVo the parade and get out there, man!

OK, so you really weren’t able to make it on Thanksgiving Day. The in-laws were giving you the stink-eye, or you refused to break tradition, playing in the neighborhood Turkey Bowl with the other duffers. Then you HAVE to check out Harbor Freight’s Black Friday: New items on sale– and more incredible, once-in-a-year prices! This one’s a 3-day sale, but don’t bet the farm that the stuff you want’s gonna be there for the duration. The stores open at 7 am and if you’re like me, you’ll get a spot around midnight… held by a willing buddy with no life, two tailgaters folding chairs, two big wool blankets, and a mondo thermos full of cocoa.

On the other hand, if you’re going to be stuck in a car the whole weekend, or visiting relatives at some remote outpost with a spotty dial-up modem, grieve no more. When you return (less one belt-notch) on Monday, Harbor Freight’s holding its legendary Cyber Monday Sale! STILL incredible deals– STILL a huge selection of quality tools at the lowest prices of the year! This is an Internet-Only sale, so log on early and stock up on the gear you’ve been waiting 365 days to buy. It’s here, it’s now!

Make your plans, set your clocks & calendars, and get ready for the biggest Harbor Freight Tools sales of the year! See you there!
