Black Friday 2017: The best early deals

Black Friday is no longer just the day after Thanksgiving. Now deals spill out willy-nilly from retailers at almost any given time in November.

Just a year or two ago, most discounts weren’t any good. But that’s changed.

While the deals that command headlines (those so-called “doorbusters”) are typically still available on only Thanksgiving or Black Friday, some worthwhile sales are already trickling out now. 

We’ve begun rounding those up here, so keep an eye peeled for further updates as the days tick by and we add new deals as we spot them. And don’t forget: Holiday return windows have just expanded (most will run into early January), so you can buy now and repent at leisure—assuming you can float the cash.

All the deals

November 9, 2017: Best Buy’s slew of early deals are still available, as are the responding price matches from competing retailers. Some items have been fluctuating in availability, so check back if Best Buy’s button says “Find in store”–we saw two items that just flipped back to “Add to Cart.”

Overall, today’s deals are modest, but we have added a heavily discounted AMD FX-8350 CPU to our PC Components section.

As always, keep in mind that these deals can expire before Black Friday if quantities run out, so don’t wait too long if something appeals to you.

Holiday return information

For your convenience, we’ve listed the return information policies for popular retailers. Do make note of the exceptions on their Return Policy pages, however. Some categories of products (like cell phones) have much shorter windows for returns, regardless of the holiday shopping period.

Amazon – “You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Amazon within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. During the holidays, items shipped by Amazon between November 1st and December 31st can be returned until January 31st.”

Best Buy – “Almost every purchase made throughout November and December can be returned through January 14, 2018.” 

BH – “As a courtesy during the busy holiday season, we have extended our usual 30-day limit on returns and exchanges. Purchases made between November 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018 may be returned or exchanged through February 1, 2018 (or 30 days from date of purchase, whichever is longer). All other standard return policy conditions apply.”
