UPDATED: A few deals continue after Black Friday. See the section "Beyond Friday" for offers.

There's a perk to being an early bird at holiday sales: freebies.

For Thanksgiving and Black Friday, some stores are pushing special coupons that savvy shoppers can turn into free items and early customers also have first dibs on items free after rebate at stores like Macy's.

There are some other treats too like free coffee and cookies, which Walmart will give out from 4 to 6 p.m. before it starts its sale Thanksgiving Day. 

But just like the doorbusters, these freebies are limited and only available while supplies last.

Need a different kind of perk? Black Friday also is National Espresso Day.
