Black Friday 2023 has already begun! Due to the absolute madness that befalls the shopping holiday year after year, so many retailers have already dropped their November mega-deals, giving us extra time to shop.
We’ll set you up with all of the info you need below — followed by our master list of early Black Friday deals you can nab online now. Let’s do this!
When Is Black Friday?
As Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, its date changes every year. For 2023, it falls on November 24. That said, many sales have already begun to drop (and we have Cyber Monday to look forward to the following week)!
What Is the Difference Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
While Cyber Monday is more online-focused, Black Friday includes both in-store and online deals. Why shop online for Black Friday instead of waiting? First, many retailers will have the same discounts for both days. Second, many products will sell out by the time Cyber Monday comes around.
Deal News also reports that you may have to pay more for shipping on Cyber Monday sales, which is something to keep in mind. Personally, we always shop on both days!
What’s Different About Black Friday 2023?
For the past few years, Black Friday has felt the effects of the pandemic, supply chain issues, etc. This means we’ve seen a lot of companies experimenting with deal timing, as well as changing shopping trends.
CNBC reports that early Black Friday discounts across a range of categories have been higher this year than in the past. This includes “both the depth of discounts and the total amount of items on sale.” It’s looking like a fantastic time to shop!
Another bit of useful info from Tech Target is that “around 35% of people plan to start their Black Friday shopping earlier, which includes shopping on Thanksgiving. This is an increase of 13% from 2022.” This means we need to be early too!
