After a big dinner on Thanksgiving, the last thing you may want to do is brave the retail crowds. But if you're one of the first shoppers through the doors, you could have better luck nabbing inventory before it sells out, and you could score freebies on Black Friday that make the deals even better.

Be Prepared to Wait for Free Black Friday Stuff

Many freebie deals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. This means you'll have to head to the stores early. And as you'll see, some of the freebies only apply to the first 100 or so customers, so you'll need to be in line before others arrive to ensure you can grab these items.

The Best Black Friday Freebies in 2019

Below are the Black Friday freebie offers we've already confirmed for 2019, plus ones we saw last year that could return.

  • Barnes & Noble: Last year, the bookseller offered shoppers "buy one, get one free" Starbucks drinks in the cafe until 10 am local time. We wouldn't be surprised to see this freebie return for 2019.
  • Confirmed! Bealls: Enjoy free gift-wrapping in-store and save yourself the hassle of doing it yourself.
  • Confirmed! Belk: Shop at 4 pm on Thanksgiving and 6 am on Black Friday for a chance to win a gift card. The cards are worth anywhere from $5 to $500, and there will be one $500 winner per store, per day.
  • Dunkin': Last year the doughnut shop teamed up with Lyft to offer the first 25,000 customers a free ride to their local Dunkin'. Users had to enter a coupon code to get the freebie.
  • Confirmed! Fleet Farm: The first 500 customers through the doors on Black Friday will receive a free plush toy.
  • Half Price Books: On Black Friday 2018, the first 100 booklovers to get to the store could snag a free tote and gift card.
  • Confirmed! JCPenney: Be one of the first shoppers in line on Thursday at 2 pm, and you could receive a coupon. You could even be lucky enough to snag one for up to $500 off.
  • Confirmed! Kneipp: Treat yourself to a free body lotion when you spend $35. Use the coupon code "FREEGIFT" during checkout.
  • Confirmed! Lowe's: The first 300 shoppers stopping by Lowe's on Black Friday will receive a $10-off-$50 coupon, valid in-store on that day only. They'll also get the chance to win a $500 Lowe's gift card; there will be one winner per store.
  • Confirmed! Macy's: Like last year, you can shop Macy's doorbuster deals and get them for free after a rebate. Items include bath rugs, bedding, cookware, jewelry, and clothing.
  • Confirmed! New York & Company: Stocking up on clothing? Receive a free stuffed bear (pick from Theo or Gracie) with a $75 purchase on Thanksgiving or Black Friday. Not spending quite that much? You can still snag a bear for $5 when you spend $50.
  • Confirmed! Sears: You don't even have to show up in-store to snag this one! Simply text "THANKS" to 73277, and you'll receive a $10 coupon. You must be a Shop Your Way member to redeem.
  • Confirmed! Stage Stores: Be one of the first 75 guests in-store at 1 pm on Thursday, and you can enter to win a FAO Schwarz bear. You'll also receive a scratch-off card worth up to $250 off.

    Shopping on Friday? Be one of the first 50 guests in-store at 6 am and receive a free holiday tote. You'll also score a scratch-off card worth up to $100 off.
  • Stein Mart: In-store shoppers had to go on a hunt last year, as they needed to be the first to find the hanger with the gold sticker. Lucky shoppers could then win either $500 or $5,000. Plus, the first 100 shoppers received a scratch-off ticket worth $5, $25, or $100.
  • World Market: The first 100 shoppers on Black Friday, Saturday, and Sunday last year received a free tote bag with a $10 gift certificate.
