Black Friday 2017 technically isn’t until November 24th, which is still three weeks away. Of course everyone knows that the moment the calendar page flips from October to November, Black Friday shopping season is in full effect. It’s true that the biggest sales in terms of hype and deal volume won’t take place until Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, but you don’t need to wait until then to find deep discounts. In fact, some of the deals you’ll find beginning November 1st are just as good as any Black Friday sale, but without all the stress and chaos that comes along with Black Friday.

Retailers across the country went live with their pre-Black Friday sales on Wednesday, November 1st, and millions of shoppers are already taking advantage of the discounts. In this post, we’ll show you the five best pre-Black Friday sales you can find online right now.
