Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and that means that Black Friday (November 23, 2018) and Cyber Monday (November 26, 2018) aren't too far off either. Deals are already available, especially online, so we'll offer a preview of deals you'll soon see as well as some that are already out. So, get ready for sales and the start of Christmas shopping!
Note that a few smaller retailers such as REI will keep their doors closed for Black Friday, but for you diehard Black Friday fans rest assured that most of the retail heavyweights such as Walmart and Target will open featuring deals and bargains.
This is the ideal time to get all those bigger ticket items you've been eyeing all year with major discounts on 4K TVs, gaming consoles, mobile phones, Google Assistant, Xbox as well as household furniture and clothes.

Why Is Black Friday So Early?
Black Friday is the first day most retailers turn a profit for the year. In fact, last year US retailers earned almost $8 billion on Black Friday so it behooves them to start a few days earlier each year.
Black Friday 2018 Predictions
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday dates change every year, but they're the same days: the Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving. And really, the routine is the same.
Black Friday Video Game Consoles
So far in 2018, Xbox gaming consoles are stealing the limelight, we're seeing it everywhere. Nintendo Switch with neon blue and neon red Joy-Con is going for $299. PS4 deals will abound too. Now's the time to pick up a gaming console.
What's the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
On the surface, Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 23, 2018 while Cyber Monday is on Monday, November 26, 2018. On a more practial note, Cyber Monday only takes place online, while Black Friday can be both offline or online. Our recommendation is buy what you need during Black Friday then check prices on Cyber Monday and return any items you find that are cheaper.
