work for you?
Lowe's has gone big on tools and Christmas decorations this year, with some solid performers in furniture and home appliances as well.
We combed through Lowe's 32-page Black Friday ad, picking out the best deals to make it easier for you to save big.
In case you missed it:
Tools and Christmas decorations take the lead this year at Lowe's. For those getting into the holiday spirit, the store is offering a $10 Gift Card via a post-sale rebate on all fresh-cut Christmas trees valued at $34.98 and up.
Lowe’s is also hoping to draw customers to its stores early Friday morning by offering “instant" Lowe’s Gift Cards valued at $5 to $500. Lucky customers at the store between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Friday will be eligible for this deal, and no purchase is necessary.

Lowe's is advertising discounts of up to 40% off select home appliances, although you’ll find a number of price cuts that go even deeper.
The store is also offering gift cards valued at up to $600 via a rebate if you purchase two or more appliances that cost at least $396 each. The value of the gift card you get breaks down as follows:
- 2 Appliances = $75
- 3 Appliances = $150
- 4 Appliances = $250
- 5 Appliances = $400
- 6 or more appliances = $600
Available now through November 29th, these rebates are limited to one per household and you have to make your claim within 30 days of purchase. Appliances that meet the $396 threshold also qualify for free local delivery.
This deal can be combined with four-piece kitchen suites for extra discounts. Lowe's is offering a great Samsung four-piece kitchen suite deal, featuring a French door refrigerator, microwave, five-element stove/oven and dishwasher (all in stainless steal) for $2,006, down from $3,476. Since two of those meet the $396-or-more threshold for the gift card deal above, you’ll also earn $75 from the rebate.
