The first Black Friday 2016 ad is arriving soon.

The Black Friday 2016 sales season will be ushered in with the release of Black Friday 2016 ads. The first Black Friday 2016 ad will leak as early as this week. 

Update 10/12: And we were right. The first Black Friday 2016 ad leaked on Wednesday, October 12. The Harbor Freight Black Friday 2016 ad is the first Black Friday ad that has leaked in 2016.

Historically, the first Black Friday ad surfaced before October 15 in the past 10 years, according to GottaDeal's Black Friday ad release schedule.  Last year, the first Black Friday ad surfaced already on October 2. The Half Price Books Black Friday ad had the honor to be the first Black Friday flyer of the season.

Each year, this list is the most complete list of leaked and officially released Black Friday ads. If you have not done so, bookmark the Black Friday thread on Slickdeals.

Usually the first Black Friday ads are not as exciting, but early leaks of popular Black Friday ads still happen. Last year the Dell Black Friday ads surfaced early in the game.

The most anticipated of all Black Friday ads is the Walmart Black Friday 2016 ad. We expect Walmart to publish the Walmart Black Friday 2016 ad on Friday, November 11.

Most major Black Friday 2016 ad  around that date. Best Buy and Target aim at beating Walmart to the punch and try to release their Black Friday ads just before Walmart comes out with their "Black Friday bible."

Black Friday ads have evolved over time and most of them are now interactive digital catalogs. Best Buy's Black Friday ad is even changing continuously until shortly before the Best Buy Black Friday sale begins. Traditional ads did not have that flexibility. Black Friday ads are also more useful now as shoppers can directly click through to more details or the purchase page.

Especially the Sam's Club Black Friday sales events have been exceptional for scoring deals early. We expect that there will be again Sam's Club Holiday Savings Celebration sale mid-November.
