Best Black Friday Deals 2018

The busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday 2018 is arriving November 23, 2018, the day after Thanksgiving. It's coming a little earlier this year, which means you'll start seeing the first pre-Black Friday offers and specials cropping up at the end of October. These sales are designed to give you a taste of the bigger deals that are on their way. While the discounts may not always be as great, these events are still good opportunities to stock up on loss leaders such as socks, shoes and small electronics, with the occasional smoking deal on televisions, computers and gaming consoles thrown in.

To ensure you have the best shopping season yet, we've been hard at work compiling top pre-Black Friday deals. Whether you're shopping for clothing, electronics or home decor, keep an eye out here for news about all the specials as they become available.

Other Pre-Black Friday Tips

While we'll be keeping this spot updated with the latest pre-Black Friday offers, you can ensure no good deals slip through the cracks by following this advice.

Join Mailing Lists

Stock up on pre-Black Friday coupons and promo codes by signing up for the mailing lists of your favorite retailers. By doing so, you'll also enjoy getting news about upcoming sales sent right to your inbox, plus qualify for subscriber-only deals, something many retailers like Newegg are well known for.

Enroll in Loyalty and Rewards Programs

If you're going to be spending money anyway, you might as well be rewarded for it. For example, when you sign up for the Best Buy Rewards system, you'll earn 0.5 points for every $1 spent and receive a $5 reward once you've earned 250 points. With Kohl's, you earn 1 point for every $1 spent and earn $5 for every 100 points saved.

Sign up for Credit Cards

While credit cards are an awesome way to finance holiday spending and stretch your payments, some do double-duty by offering special benefits. Target REDcard holders get early access to promos and a 5% discount on all purchases. With cards like the Chase Freedom Unlimited and American Express Blue Cash Preferred, you'll earn cash back on purchases no matter where you shop while the Southwest Rapid Rewards Visa and Chase Sapphire Reserve will reward you similarly with travel points.

Keep Apprised of Extended Return Dates

Extended return periods will vary by merchant, but many allow you to send back items purchased between November 1 and December 25 as late as January 31. These dates are especially important when buying gifts early. Be sure to hold on to receipts in case you or your gift recipients need to make returns.
