Black Friday is still weeks away, but some retailers have opted to start the year’s biggest shopping event early. While a few have already marked down items to their Black Friday prices, others are just offering up some non-Black Friday (but still worthwhile!) discounts.
To make your holiday tech shopping easier this year, we’re rounding up the best of the best gadget deals, whether they’re true Black Friday sales or just regular sales that happen to be going on right before Black Friday.
Keep in mind: There’s a possibility that some of these products will be marked down even more by the time Black Friday rolls around, but there’s no guarantee that the exact model you’re in search of will be available. After all, an electronics shopping best practice is to order early; especially when it comes to new tech releases around the holiday season, stock is generally low, and shipping times are unpredictable.
