The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Kohl’s, 11/21 — Sneak Peek: 400 Early Birds Available Online Thursday!
While Black Friday deals have been on tap for weeks, Kohl’s is one of the first to provide a sneak peek of genuine Black Friday deals, some of which they’re making available on Thanksgiving Day online. For retailers that aren’t opening their stores on Turkey Day, making at least some Black Friday deals available online a day early should be a fairly common occurrence this year.
Old Navy, 11/19 — Cozy Styles, Starting at $10 + FREE Shipping Every Day!
A number of large retailers including Sears and Toys “R” Us are going to be open this Thanksgiving Day, but Old Navy is the first to tell their subscribers.
Sears, 11/21 — Tonight Extra 5-10% Off + Free Shipping!
Free shipping is a sales driver but margin eroder. I like how Sears communicates in-store pickup as an appealing alternative to free shipping in this banner.
