Black Friday is almost here, and you're probably wondering what the best deals and sales are - and how early you can shop them. As shopping editors, we've done all the research for you, including all the best products to shop for this holiday as well as rounding up any early Black Friday deals and sales we could find. Here's everything you need to know about the shopping event this year.

When is Black Friday this year?

Black Friday takes place the day after Thanksgiving, so this year, the event is on November 24th. That said, there are many Black Friday deals live already, including Walmart's exclusive Black Friday sales.

What should shoppers look for?

Black Friday is the best time to get your last-minute holiday shopping done: think headphone deals, beauty deals and kitchen appliance deals. It's also a good time to get any big-ticket purchases out of the way, so if you're looking for a discounted mattress or TV, Black Friday is the best time to purchase. Last year, some bestsellers included Apple AirPods, Amazon devices, Roomba robot vacuums and household essentials like Crest Whitestrips. This year, we can expect deals on all these items again, along with potentially more deals on newer devices like the Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen (USB-C version) and Amazon's Echo Pop.

Where should I shop on Black Friday?

While bigger retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Nordstrom will have deals and sales up for grabs, you can also find holiday deals on individual retailers. Solo Stove, Saatva, Our Place, Ulta and Sephora are just some other retailers we can expect to see holiday deals at.
