If you're one to go through the catalogs on Thanksgiving to figure out where you're going to get in a fight on Friday, you might notice that this year's catalogs look a bit similar to last year.

Wallethub noticed the same thing, and started digging a little deeper to figure out who's cheating and just having the same deals as last year. 18% of the deals this year are the same product as last year. That's almost 1/5!

They found the five chains with the most recycled products to be some you'll probably shop at this year;

  • Harbor Freight (60.2%)
  • Office Depot/OfficeMax (30.5%)
  • Ace Hardware (29.9%)
  • Sears (29.3%)
  • JC Penney (28.2%)

The good news is if you shopped at harbor freight last year, you can buy another one of those screwdrivers you got for $1 last year that lasted three uses.

They've made a full breakdown of the cheaters this year, which shows how just changing a little bit of font size and coloring is enough to bamboozle a nation.
