Lowe’s Black Friday ad (Shop-Vac for $39, plastic lidded storage boxes for $3.24 + more)

by Angela Davis on November 17, 2012

The Black Friday deals are live on Lowes.com right now! Skip the lines and buy right now!

Here are the best deals from the Black Friday Lowe’s ad for 2012. You can view the entire Lowe’s Black Friday ad scan here.

Commentary is provided by my husband Will, a general contractor and one of the world’s most frugal men. Perfect combo for scouring the Lowe’s ad. He comes from the perspective that he’d rather pay a bit more for a tool/accessory that will last three times as long. Also note that many, many items promoted in the ad are regularly priced — nice marketing ploy. The Will-Man is only listing what he believes to be the very best deals.

You are welcome to ask Will any questions about the Lowe’s ad in the comments. He will be happy to offer his manly-deal-finding expertise!


Shop-Vac (14 gallon) on sale $39 (regularly $89) — In previous years, Home Depot has had a Shop-Vac included in the Black Friday deals. Not this year. This deal is way better than the one offered at Fred Meyer on Black Friday.

18 Volt Porter Cable Cordless Drill and Oscillating Tool Kit on sale $69 (regularly $169) — Huge savings on a decent quality item

Set of (5) 7 1/4″ DeWalt circular saw blades or (3) 10″ Irwin circular saw blades on sale $19.98 (regularly $39.98) — This is the lowest unit price I’ve ever seen for a quality blade

Werner Aluminum Portable Work Platform on sale $17 (regularly $46.20) — Exactly like the one at the Home Depot Black Friday deal


Plastic Lidded Storage Boxes on sale BOGO (2/$6.48) — Attached lids means you won’t lose them like with the $4 Home Depot Black Friday boxes

LED Flashlight (6 LED) on sale $1 (regularly $1.98) — Again, better unit price than the Home Depot Black Friday deal, but it looks like those are 9 LED. Perfect for Welcome Boxes for kids entering foster care!

AA Batteries (30 pk) on sale $4 (regularly $9.97) — Better per unit price than the Home Depot Black Friday deal.


Poinsettias on sale $.99 (regularly $3.99)


Self-Contained Wood-Burning Patio Fire Pit on sale $39 (regularly $79)

I just went on-line and ordered 20 flashlights. Thank you for the heads up on the great deal on flashlights and they come with batteries. Yeah! With an order over $19 before tax I didn’t have to pay for shipping. I have one less store to go to tomorrow and the flashlights will come to my house in 3-7 days. Yeah. Next time I fill welcome boxes I will have real nice flashlights to include in them. Thank you again. Last night I tried to order them, but I couldn’t find them on-line. Today in the ad I saw the magical number that helped me. #350709

Are these deals available online? Especially the shop vac? I don’t like the crowds….

The lidded boxes are real sturdy, we bought 15 last year. Pick through them though, some lids are better than others and they aren’t all attached due to how they ship them.

If you’re planning to shop at Lowe’s, don’t forget the gift cards available at Safeway, on special through Wed Nov 21.

Spend $150 on Lowe’s gift cards, get
$25 off a $50 order at Safeway (catalina good for 1 week)
$0.60/gal in gas rewards from Safeway (so $9 if you buy 15 gallons of gas)
