The Best Early Black Friday Deals for Pre-Holiday Indulgence

For some people, there’s something novel about waking up at 6 a.m. on Black Friday to go to the mall in your pajamas. Is it the epic deals and steals, or the appeal of eating Auntie Anne’s pretzels for breakfast? We may never know, but it’s most likely a combination of both. That said, while food court brunches and stampedes of shoppers trying to pry Sony’s PS5 out of our cold, dead hands has its charm, we would much rather browse heavily marked-down electronics, vibrators, and swaggy designer jackets from the comfort of our own home.

Best of all, it seems like we’re finally in a world where the season’s best holiday shopping deals don’t all have to fall on the final Friday in November (and be shopped IRL). Not to toot our own horns, but we’re the big dogs of optimizing holiday shopping to be as fruitful and painless as possible. This means we’re also tuned in to exactly when the best deals are dropping—even if they’re long before the big shopping holiday kicks off. While it may still be mid-November, many of the best early Black Friday deals and steals this time around are already live and ready to shop. Everything from cookware, tech, fashion, this tentacle dildo and home decor is a part of the pre-post-Thanksgiving fun—so hop aboard and fill your carts before you’re hung over and suffering from indigestion. Hit these deals now, thank us later.
