The big shopping day that many Americans look forward to is almost here. People seem to really love or seriously hate Black Friday. Incredible deals on all sorts of merchandise can be found; however, the day can also bring out the worst in people. We've seen the proof from viral videos of people fighting over a cheap TV at a certain big box store that didn't even make this list.

WalletHub put together a list of the "Best Stores For Black Friday In 2018." In order to do so, the personal finance website reports that its researchers surveyed "nearly 8,000 deals from 29 of the biggest U.S. retailers’ 2019 Black Friday ad scans." The following stores offer at least a 40 percent. WalletHub says "consumers should aim for this discount amount or higher to avoid Black-Friday traps."

Here's WalletHub's list:

(1) JCPenney
(2) Kohl's
(3) New York & Company
(4) Dick's Sporting Goods
(5) Kmart
(6) Sears
(7) Macy's
(8) BJ's
