I went to check the mail yesterday and my little mailbox was stuffed with Black Friday deals. You're probably in the same boat. But when you start to look through them, don't they seem oddly familiar? Like you've seen these Black Friday deals before.

The personal finance website WalletHub has released their 2019 Black Friday Freshness Report, which finds that 18 percent of all deals are recycled this year. Almost 1/5 of ALL Black Friday deals are the exact same they were last year, or the year before.

Most of these retailers can even be found right here in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas.

Among the retailers, Harbor Freight has the most recycled deals, totaling 60.2 percent of its current offers, whereas Costco has the least, at 2.4 percent.

Retailers with the Most Recycled Deals
1. Harbor Freight (60.2%)
2. Office Depot and OfficeMax (30.5%)
3. Ace Hardware (29.9%)
4. Sears (29.3%)

18. Best Buy (8.9%)
19. Lenovo (6.7%)
20. Dell Home (6.0%)

Others retailers that recycled more that 10% of their Black Friday deals that you can find locally are Stage (18.8%), Big Lots(16%), Kohl's(11.5%), Belk(11.1%), and Target (10%).
