The best Black Friday deals are at... Kohl's

Probably not who you were expecting.

Black Friday headlines tend to be dominated by the likes of Amazon, Walmart, Target, Macy's and Best Buy, but some of the best deals this year can be found at Kohl's.

The Wisconsin-based department store chain (with 27 Minnesota locations listed) has a plethora of items on sale for Black Friday – including most of its consumer electronics – and they come with "Kohl's Cash" to keep you coming back.

For every $50 you spend on certain Black Friday deals, you get $15 back in store credit coupons.

Take the the Canon Rebel T6 DSLR camera, for example. Popular retailers like Target, Best Buy, and list it at $449.99. But purchasing it at Kohl's on Black Friday, you'll have enough to stock up on a bunch of camera accessories too.

Kohl's: $449.99, plus $135 Kohl's Cash back.

Check out the Kohl's Black Friday ad and you can see this coupon offer is running on most of electronics doorbuster deals and numerous other sale items throughout its 64-page booklet.

The main caveat to this is you must spend this Kohl's Cash between Nov. 26-Dec. 6. Even if Kohl's jacks up its prices during that period, you're still playing with (kind of) free money.

Tip: If you're planning on buying something on Black Friday and have already earmarked where you're getting it from, check out the Kohl's ad to see what they're offering. You can use the coupons to pay for some of your Christmas shopping.
