From Target and Walmart to Best Buy and Apple – deals for holiday shopping
The biggest shopping day of the year is on the way.
Though Black Friday will offer hundreds of deals from tons of retailers, you can shop early this year and expect to save even more.
“We’re really seeing things start earlier than ever before,” Nathan Burrow, senior deals editor at Wirecutter, told “Good Morning America.”
When is Black Friday this year?
Black Friday falls on Nov. 25 this year, the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Deals will be starting within the next few days — if they haven’t kicked off already. With markdowns starting early this year, it’s important to have a list and plan ahead before hot ticket items sell out.

Tips for conquering Black Friday shopping like a pro
“The first and most important thing to remember is that not every sale is going to be a good one. There are a lot of sales out there that are framed as being great discounts that are not, in fact, fantastic,” Burrow said.
Before you shop, make sure to do the following:
- Make a list. Think — who do you need to shop for this holiday season and how much are you willing to spend?
- Set a price drop alert using shopping apps like Honey or CamelCamelCamel to tell you when prices go down.
- Plan your non-negotiable purchases ahead of the sale.
- Use price tracking tools and coupon extensions.
