10 Cool Black Friday Freebies
NEW YORK ( MainStreet) If you can tolerate the pushy crowds and long lines at checkout, Black Friday can be a great day to save big on your holiday purchases. But huge markdowns aren't the only reason to brave the stores on November 29 (and November 28, in some cases)you can also snag some pretty sweet freebies from several well-known retailers.
While some freebies are only given to shoppers who make a purchase, others can be had just by entering a store. Pretty sweet, huh?
Your furry friends will wag their tails over this one. On the morning of Black Friday, the first 100 people to enter every PetSmart store will receive a free stocking stuffed with $130 worth of in-store coupons and dog and cat treats . Most PetSmart stores across the U.S. open at 7 a.m., so it's best to beat the crowds if you want to secure a stocking for your precious cat or pooch.

If you can't make it to a Seattle's Best location on Black Friday, you're in luck. Simply visit the Seattle's Best Coffee Facebook page between now and November 29, and you can receive a free coffee sample, which brews a four-cup pot of coffee (available while supplies last).
Disney fans will love JCPenney's Black Friday giveaway this year. Starting at 4 a.m., the retailer will be handing shoppers free Mickey Mouse snow globes just for entering the store. The snow globes feature Mickey in a Santa suit atop a red present with "2013" written on a green bow. We suggest visiting the store as early as possible, because the snow globes are only available while supplies last.
