This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Black Friday is still just over a week away officially, but if you look at the deals available right now you’d think it was already in full swing. Retailers such as Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon and more have been blasting consumers with early Black Friday sales since mid-October, and things are not slowing down at all. 

CNET’s team of deal-hunting experts has been extremely busy these past few weeks sorting through thousands of offers, discounts and price drops for you. Several retailers released official Black Friday ads, so we’ve been comparing current pricing to the upcoming deals. We’re constantly updating this guide with the best Black Friday deals and prices available right now, so be sure to check back often so you don’t miss any. This story was last updated on Thursday, Nov. 18.

Black Friday sales at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target and more

On the calendar, Black Friday takes place on Friday, Nov. 26 — the day after Thanksgiving — but Black Friday sales are alive and well. To help navigate the pandemonium, here’s a handy guide of what you can expect on sale when and where:

  • Amazon: While plenty of great early sales are happening now, Amazon just released a sneak peek of its main Black Friday event, which will run from Nov. 25 through 26. It’s a little less detailed than previous versions, but it still helps give you an idea of what’s to come.
  • Best Buy: The big-box retailer has early Black Friday sales running now, but it hasn’t fully disclosed its official Black Friday plans. We anticipate that the plans will come soon, as it is one of the last to release an official ad.
  • Walmart: Walmart has had deals running all November, and it’s already released a full slate of deals that start on Nov. 22. From cheap AirPods Pro to discounted TVs and next-gen console stock, you won’t want to miss out on any of it.
  • Target: Deals have been running all November, and now the retailer has listed its full deals slate for Black Friday week. Bigger, better offers start this Sunday, Nov. 21. Its current best deals are live at this page. And here are the best Target deals available now and coming soon.

Best Black Friday deals at Walmart

We’ve already had two Walmart Black Friday shopping events this month, and the big one is set to kick off on Nov. 22. From $89 AirPods to $229 4K TVs, Walmart is going all-out this Black Friday (and will even have stock of the PS5 and Xbox Series X). Here are some of the best Walmart Black Friday deals that are available right now.

Best Black Friday deals at Best Buy

It’s still a bit of a mystery as to what the Best Buy Black Friday deal plans are. The retailer has yet to share its official plans, which is odd considering we’ve already had releases from Amazon, Target, Walmart and others.

With the Roomba i3 Plus, the most work you’ll have to do is set it up. Its sensors can distinguish between carpet and hardwood, and can even detect the dirtiest part of your home, so it knows where to concentrate its efforts. It will even empty itself, so you hardly have to think about it.

Best Black Friday deals at Amazon

This year, Amazon’s Black Friday deal press release was much more vague than it usually is, so we don’t have a great idea of what exactly the online retail giant plans to do next week. The company offered up some generic outlines of deals, like select percentages off of brands, but not specific pricing on specific items.
