Black Friday: Freebies galore at major stores

Black Friday is also Freebie Friday, and some of the fun starts Thanksgiving.

At some stores, you'll get treats for being among the first customers, free items after rebates and more.

The freebie fest continues past Friday too at Bass Pro Shops and World Market.

But just like the doorbusters, quantities are limited, so plan to head to stores early.

Here are the freebies:
