We’re still over a week away from Black Friday, but some major retailers have already kicked their holiday sales into high gear. Take a look at the sales happening now at Amazon and Wal-Mart.

Amazon early Black Friday deals

Amazon announced Wednesday that it will offer more than 35 days of Black Friday shopping, with deals lasting now through Dec. 22.

  • Amazon Tap for $89.99 (save $40).
