We’re just one week away from the official start of Black Friday 2018! Of course, everyone knows that Black Friday deals are available long before the official start of Black Friday each and every year, and 2018 is no different. In fact, the deals leading up to Black Friday this year are definitely some of the best we’ve ever seen. On Thursday, a new wave of early Black Friday 2018 sales kicked off from Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. As it happens, those are easily the three most popular retailers among our readers each year for Black Friday shopping.

Amazon is the star of the show on Thursday thanks to its massive Black Friday blowout on refurbished Philips Hue smart lights. In fact, we’ve ever seen a Philips Hue sale this good before, and you can check it out right here on Amazon’s site. Of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg in Amazon’s Black Friday hub, with other top deals that include the all-time lowest price on SanDisk’s most popular 128GB microSD card, $40 off the 5-star rated KiLi Beam 5.8QT Power Air Fryer XL with promo code MUL34MP6, Dash’s awesome Rapid Egg Cooker for $14.99, an Anker fast wireless charging stand for just $17.99, the Nest Thermostat at its best price of the year, the wildly popular smartwatch with 30-day battery life for only $69.99, and tons more.

Best Buy and Walmart are also running a bunch of killer pre-Black Friday 2018 deals on Thursday, and you can find our favorites below.
