Calling Black Friday the Super Bowl of commerce would be an understatement on the level of saying the sun is “kind of hot.” Retailers are slashing so many prices, the pre-Black Friday deals may as well be their own holiday. Do not wade into the darkness, full of Thanksgiving turkey without some guidance. Let Digital Trends’ annual Black Friday help you sift through the vast array of deals and discover the best ones.

We will update this guide regularly with more of our favorite deals each day. Also, please note that because most of these deals are in-store only, there are not always links. We will add links as they become available.

MOST DEALS ARE IN STORE. WE PROVIDE LINKS FOR GUIDANCE ONLY. THEY MAY NOT REFLECT THE DISCOUNTED PRICE.
