It's still October but Black Friday deals season is already here. Dozens of terrific offers are still live following the Prime Big Deal Days event at Amazon earlier in the month - and now more retailers are getting involved with sales.
I've searched through all of the early Black Friday deals that are currently available and picked out the ones that I recommend buying right now. Highlights include the excellent value Hisense U6H 4K QLED TV for $698 (was $1,199.99), the highly-rated Ninja AF101 air fryer for $89.99, and a huge Nintendo Switch + Mario Kart 8 bundle for $299.99.
We're also coming off the news that Best Buy will offer early Black Friday deals exclusively to My Best Buy members from October 27. You can sign up for a Plus or Total membership to get access from $49.99 per year. The same sales will then be available to all from October 30.
