Let's face it: Black Friday has already begun. The calendar cannot read November 29, but many stores have announced or launched their Black Friday sale. Yes, launched:and Walmart launched its a few weeks ago. So, yes – Black Friday Madness is just around the corner.
No worries! We are already following all Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) deals between now and early December. And to make life easier, we choose the very best ̵
A 65-inch TV for $ 380? It seems that only yesterday that would have been considered a bargain on a 55-inch model. It is an entry level model, without built-in smarts; you must have BYO Fire TV or Roku streamer. Fortunately, it has four HDMI inputs, so there is enough room for all the equipment that you might want to connect.
This is the lowest price so far on the child-friendly tablet from Amazon, including a heavy case (with standard) and a two-year carefree warranty. You also get a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, worth $ 36. The tablet is available with your choice of three colors: blue, pink and purple.
You can also get the Fire HD 8 Tablet for Kids Edition for $ 90, which is $ 40 off the regular price. It is slightly faster and slightly larger, but otherwise almost the same experience for your children.
This head-to-head machine brings 12 classic arcade games to your lair, including half a dozen Street Fighter titles, Final Fight and Command. And for a limited time you also score $ 70 in Kohl & # 39; s Cash, which is basically free money to use for additional store purchases. (Note that it must be used no later than November 14.)
Although the product description appears to refer to the upright version of this device, the model number is absolute for the cocktail table.
Most machines of Arcade1Up cost around $ 300. This – a three-quarter version of the original – costs $ 170 as soon as it is in your shopping cart. And it looks, sounds and plays exactly like the old arcade devices. Walmart also offers the Centipede edition for $ 180.
Curious about your provenance story? The Living DNA test is quite extensive; it includes your overall origin, mother line and father line. Plus, family DNA matching is now also included. (However, keep in mind that the same kit costs $ 10 less from November 18 to December 3.)

Yes, it is nowhere near Black Friday, and the Echo Show 5 already sells for less than on Prime Day. The small smart speaker with the 5.5-inch display is a great bedside companion, but it can also do the kitchen duties for things like recipe videos and video calls.
Interestingly, Kohl currently has the Echo Show 5 for sale at the same price, but if you buy it there, you will also receive $ 10 in Kohl & # 39; s Cash – essentially free money to use for future store purchases .

The Fossil Sport came on the market about a year ago and brought a lot of features to the Wear OS watch scape for a reasonable price of $ 275. The specifications include NFC for Google Pay, GPS, 5 ATM water resistance, a heart rate monitor and an altimeter. This pre-Black Friday sale drops the Sport (light blue only) to just $ 149, the best price we've seen so far.
That's it for now, but keep coming back as we update this post based on new offers and availability. In the meantime, here is everything you need to know about this major shopping event.
What date is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving. This year it will take place on Friday, November 29.
When is Cyber Monday 2019?
It falls on the Monday after Black Friday – in this case, Monday 2 December.
When does Black Friday start the sale anyway?
It varies from store to store, but expects to see many sales that start well before Thanksgiving. Some stores indeed reveal "Black November" sales that cover the entire month, while others start their Black Friday events early. We will post all details as soon as we receive them.
Why does it become & # 39; Black Friday & # 39; mentioned?
This is stuff from urban legends. Some say that Black Friday dates from the early 1950s, when stores started the Christmas shopping season with big sales. So large in fact, that the annual store profit often in & # 39; the black & # 39; (which no longer means & # 39; in red & # 39; means), which is the habit of losing money) once all receipts have been kept. Or: So large that the traffic would grow so growling, police called the day "Black Friday".

How do I find & # 39; leaked & # 39; Black Friday ads
In recent years, various Black Friday sites have dedicated themselves to revealing leaked newspaper circulars in the days and weeks prior to the big Thanksgiving sale. They are still there, but many large stores have chosen to "leak" advertisements on their own sites, revealing the content of what is for sale for bargain hunters who want to plan ahead.
Last year, some stores already shared these ads at the end of October, and there is no reason to believe that this year will be different. As always, we keep a close eye on Black Friday ads and share them as soon as we find them, so bookmark this post and check CNET for all relevant advertising information.
Where can I find great offers in the meantime?
So glad you asked! Here are some CNET deal sources that you should add:
