Black Friday is less than two weeks away, which means hundreds of early deals are available right now from retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more. With so many early Black Friday deals available right now, it can be difficult to decide if you should buy now or wait for a better price, and that's where I come in.

As a deals editor at Techradar, I shop for sales for a living and have been covering Black Friday for half a decade. I know a good deal from a bad deal and an absolutely fantastic deal when I see one, and I love helping people save money.

Below, I'm sharing everything I recommend buying now instead of waiting for Black Friday proper, which includes a mix of TVs, kitchen appliances, tech gadgets, home items, and smart home devices. All of the items I've listed below are genuinely great deals, with record-low prices that I don't expect to be discounted further on November 24.

Some highlights include the all-new Apple Watch 9 on sale for $349, this 65-inch 4K smart TV from Hisense marked down to just $498, and the best-selling Bissell Little Green portable carpet cleaner on sale for just $89.

Below, I've listed all the best Black Friday sales that are live from your favorite online retailer, followed by more of my top deal picks. Today's Black Friday deals not only allow you to grab an early bargain, but you can avoid the madness of Black Friday and spread out your holiday shopping.
