It's only September and already the excitement over Black Friday is growing, especially after we covered's predictions for Black Friday. It turns out those predictions weren't the first bits of information to trickle out! Ace Hardware's Black Friday ad began making the rounds on deal sites in early August.

Even though the ad wasn't finalized, there are a few deals that look worth getting up early for.

  • 58 piece socket wrench set for $9.99

  • Vehicle battery booster for $9.99 after rebate

  • Stanley 19" plastic toolbox for $4.99 after rebate

  • 18 volt Makita drill for $49.99

Unfortunately Ace requested that the ad be taken down on many sites earlier this month to avoid any customer confusion over the final ad, which will be available in November. Since Ace has asked for the ad to be pulled, there's no way to know if these deals will still be up and running on Black Friday. But if so, it seems a good indicator that Ace is bringing the heat this year. We can only hope that Ace pulled the ad to lower prices and add to the plethora of deals that are coming our way in November!
