Wild American Black Friday Deals That Are Worth A Quick Road Trip Across The Border

There are even more deals just over the border.
Best American Black Friday Deals For A Quick Trip Across The Border From Canada
  • Below are some of the best American Black Friday deals for Canadians looking to score big on the biggest shopping day of the year.
  • This list specifically deals with stores that are within four driving hours of Montreal, but many have locations across the U.S.
  • Especially enticing are the deals at stores that don't have locations in Canada.

We have the U.S. to thank for all our Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that have crept into Canada. But why not thank our friends to the south by spending our hard-earned money at some of their stores? Black Friday, November 29, the day after American Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year. And American stores take full advantage of it — which is great for us who live only 90 minutes from the border.

But beware, not all Black Friday sales are created equal. According to The Washington Post, there are certain days when you'll save the biggest. Appliances and sporting goods are best to shop for on November 29, but television prices usually drop even lower on December 2. 

The U.S. sales can be a little intense (we've all seen the videos) but if you can manage the crowds, you may be able to save even bigger and also shop at stores we don't have access to in Montreal. 

With that in mind, we took a look at some of the biggest sales going on in the U.S. over Thanksgiving weekend. All the stores listed below have at least one location that is no more than a four-hour drive from Montreal (most are under two).

Here are 20 Black Friday deals in U.S. stores if you're up for a little road trip over the border.
