If you sign up for retail newsletters then you may have noticed lots of Black Friday prices and discounts already hitting your inbox. So, what’s the deal – is Black Friday shopping even necessary anymore? 

It’s true that in the past few years, thanks to online shopping trends, stores are offering even more discounts than ever. And yes – some of those discounts are already available. While we’ve been trying to avoid lines for as long as possible, it appears that the stores have caught on now too. Rather than trying to tempt shoppers in for 12 hour extravaganzas of crowd frenzied activity, they appear to hoping for increased shopping from now until next Saturday. We, for one, aren’t complaining.

So, grab those cozy pjs, a hot cup of cocoa and your laptop. These are all the best Black Friday deals you can already scoop up.

Early Black Friday Deals

Naturally, retail giant Walmart has embraced the season of early shopping and they have some bargains worth noticing. In fact, they plan to post daily deals with some pretty fantastic prices. For starters, how about a 55″ 4K TV for $299? Samsung Galaxy tablets are only $70 and there’s a Bounce Pro trampoline for under $200.

Not wanting to lose out on the opportunity to grab customers, Best Buy has also loaded up some early Black Friday style sales. We’re eyeing the laptops for up to $150 off and Epson printer for only $50. Also on the radar is the Nikon D2500 DSLR for $599 right now.

Think only tech is starting early? Nope. Right now Home Depot has over 3,000 items discounted early. We really like the Portable Air Compressor for under $200 and this portable table saw with $200 off.

Not to be outdone, Lowe’s has also offered some surprisingly low prices available right now. This is absolutely the right time to buy appliances such as this Samsung fridge for 43% off!

Got holiday parties ahead? Then be sure to see what kinds of bargain prices you can find for clothing, shoes and accessories. For instance, GAP has been offering 40% off on just about everything.  Eddie Bauer is making the same offer,  which means it’s the perfect time to grab those all-weather boots you’ve been eying.

We’ve also loaded up pre-Black Friday coupons on everything from calendars to spa gift cards. That means those shoppers who use Black Friday as an opportunity to get all Christmas shopping done can check off just about everyone from their gift list before the world’s most insane shopping day even begins.

Here’s one of our favorites right now because it lets you knock out some gift baskets for those who truly want to pamper this season:  Get $5 Off Coupon for Gourmet Gift Baskets with the Coupon Code WREATH. 

So, like we said – grab something warm to sip on and cozy up to your computer to start shopping. Then see if it’s really necessary to get out there and shop on Black Friday next week.
