As expected, the Fry's "Click and Reserve" online Thanksgiving Day sale is only half of their planned Black Friday event, as all Fry's Electronics stores will also have an in-store counterpart starting 6am on Black Friday.
Amazon will be cycling in new Lightning Deals throughout the day and offering a completely new set of sales every day throughout the entire week. Amazon has currently outlined their planned deals through 10am Monday morning, although it is not uncommon for Amazon to throw in some additional deals along the way!
It's also a great idea to sign up for Amazon Prime which gives you a free 30-day trial to the service. With Prime, you qualify for free two-day shipping on millions of items with no minimum purchase threshold!
If you sign up today, you'll receive Prime benefits through December 23, which should more than cover all Black Friday and Christmas holiday shopping purchases!
Both moms and dads can make this deal even sweeter by also signing up for the Amazon Mom program which takes an additional 20% off diapers, wipes and other family essentials (which often include personal care products)!
We'll be tracking all of the top Amazon Black Friday deals on our Black Friday Hot Deals page, which will keep you up to date on all the latest and greatest deals!
This is just the start of the sales, with many more expected to start either later today or early this week!
One countdown ends and almost immediately another one starts as Best Buy has begun their Countdown to Black Friday Sale, where the number of deals they put on sale is also the days left until Black Friday.
Seeing that we're now 5 days away from Black Friday, Best Buy has five featured deals plus one "deal of the day" today:
Kmart has started their online-only Triple Doorbuster Presale with early Black Friday deals available to Shop Your Way Rewards members.
While the presale doesn't feature all of Kmart's Black Friday doorbusters, there are still quite a few Black Friday items available now for their Black Friday price.
Additionally, you can stack 15% off coupon code HOMESALE15 to bring down the price even further! (Note: this coupon only works on certain items)
Note that the coupon is only valid towards select items and that you must be logged in as a Shop Your Way Rewards member to see the "member" price and for the 15% off coupon to apply. Also, some items need to be added to your cart to see the discounted price.
We've highlighted some of the best deals below (all prices are after coupon:
Lowe's has started their Black Friday sale early by putting more than 100 items available online at their advertised Black Friday prices!
Many of the items are listed under Lowe's "Special Values 2013" sale, but not all of these items are Black Friday items.
I would recommend cross-comparing with the BFAds Online Deals tracker, which currently shows 127 Black Friday items on sale. Just because an item isn't featured in the Black Friday ad, doesn't mean it's not a good deal.
Hoping to win an Apple iPad Air Tablet this year? You could enter our November Giveaways contest where we'll be giving away one tomorrow, along with other various Apple products, an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Macbook Air next week.
You're now entered for a chance to win an Apple iPad Air!
Don't have an Apple device?
Me neither (although all the BFAds developers do - funny how that works). So we're also giving away an additional Apple iPad Air to non-iOS users!
Android phone, Windows phone, Blackberry/Palm/etc. phone users can also fill out the Contest Entry Form and select I do not have an iOS device for their first answer.
From there, you'll be asked to provide us with some small make and model details about the phone you do use, to help BFAds form our offseason mobile strategy.
Note that these are two separate give-aways. One iPad Air will be awarded to the group who leaves a review, another will be awarded to the non-iOS group.
The only other qualification for winning is that you must have a United States or Canadian shipping address. Limit one entry per person. Winners will be contacted the week after Black Friday using the email provided in the entry form.
The online only sale starts tomorrow, Friday, Nov 22, at 7pm CST with sale prices valid through midnight Saturday.
Only eleven items are included on the sale's splash page, but Sears is promising that there are thousands more to come.
Shop Your Way is the completely free Sears rewards program where, in addition to getting the Black Friday deals early, shoppers can earn 3% in points on all qualifying purchases both in-store and online. Definitely a rewards program worth signing up for!
Starting this Sunday, November 24, Best Buy will offer special "doorbuster" deals that apparently won't be seen during their Black Friday sale.
The Best Buy Blue Sunday sale, which will only be available to My Best Buy members, currently showcases six items at slight discounts from their current retail price. There is no indication on whether or not Best Buy plans to add any more items to the sale or if this six item listing is the full sale.
