How To Unlock Early Access to Black Friday Deals

Bargain hunters—are you ready? Black Friday is on November 23 and the deals are already coming in hot. Amazon, Target, and various other retailers are already unlocking Black Friday deals. Here’s what we’ve found (plus we answer your questions about Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping habits).

How to Unlock Early Access to Black Friday Deals

1. Get a Target REDcard.

That’s right—Target’s VIP members (aka REDcard holders) will receive a 24-hour jumpstart on Black Friday deals this holiday season. If you’re a REDcard holder, you’ll get to take advantage of deals and savings an entire day before the average Black Friday shopper—starting on November 21 beginning at approximately midnight.

2. Shop Amazon ASAP.

Top Amazon items, like the Amazon Echo Dot, will be on sale for only $19.

When do Black Friday sales begin?

In years past, Black Friday sales begin in the early morning hours of the Friday after Thanksgiving. More recently, Black Friday deals have bled over into Thanksgiving Day, and this year is no exception. In 2018, you can expect to see deals on Black Friday shoes and tech as early as November 16.

When is Cyber Monday?

Ready for some serious online discounts? You can shop Black Friday deals online, just remember that retailers save some great online promotions for Cyber Monday, too. This year, Cyber Monday is on November 26. Think of it as an encore to Black Friday. It will likely last through the entire week post-Thanksgiving—however, shop early, as deals and inventory will likely go to shoppers who engage with the site on Monday the 26th. Check our deals page for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and savings updates.

Should I wait to shop Cyber Monday? 

Like any retail holiday, Cyber Monday will include a few awesome deals, but a lot of questionable prices. Sales happen all year long, so we can’t say for sure that you’ll get the best price on Cyber Monday. We recommend creating a shopping list and comparing prices before you buy. Search for the shoes and other gifts you need now, notice what the prices are today, then compare later. Using a site like Purcado, you can even see price comparisons across retailers—so you might find an even better deal from a retailer at which you wouldn’t normally shop. Comparing prices can help you get all the gifts you want for less. Trust us—your wallet will thank you.
