See that ridiculous crowd of Black Friday shoppers mobbing the store in the photo at the top of this post? We’re going to do our best to ensure you don’t end up anywhere near a scene like that for Black Friday 2017. If you learn one thing and one thing only from us this month, it should be that you’ll find the same (or even better) Black Friday deals online as you will in stores. Yes, there are a few exceptions. For example, if you want one of the doorbuster deals on the barely usable HDTV’s that retailers use to lure shoppers into stores, you’ll have to embrace the chaos and head out to your local brick and mortar retailer. If you prefer quality products though, every deal you want can be found online.

There are a number of early Black Friday sales that are already live, and you can learn everything you need to know about the best ones from retailers like Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy right here. You’ll find Black Friday prices that are already available on hot holiday items like big 4K TVs, Kindles, Bose wireless headphones, Alexa-enabled smart home devices, and plenty more. But if you want to know when all of the top retailers will begin their full-fledged online Black Friday 2017 sales, we’ve got you covered.
