More consumers than ever plan to shop online for gifts this holiday season, according to Deloitte’s annual holiday survey. To meet this expected demand, many major retailers are bringing their Black Friday deals from the brick-and-mortar stores to the cyber world.

That means you can get some of the best prices of the year from the comfort of home this week. Black Friday is Nov. 25, but many sales will start on Thanksgiving Day. So keep your pajamas on and leave the turkey in the oven. Here’s where to shop:


Target says all of its Black Friday deals will be available online with free shipping on Thanksgiving Day. Sale items include Powerbeats 2 Wireless Earphones for $89.99 (regularly $199.99) and the Dyson V6 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum for $299.99 (regularly $499.99).

And there will be plenty of Apple deals up for grabs, too. The Apple Watch Series 1 will start at $198 (regularly starting at $269.99), and the iPad Air 2 will start at $274 (regularly starting at $399.99).


Last year, Kohl’s limited its Black Friday doorbusters to in-store customers only, but not this year. Doorbusters for 2016 are available in store and online from 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day until 1 p.m. Black Friday, or while supplies last.

Deals include a Haier 49-inch Ultra HD 4K TV for $249.99 (regularly $349.99). You can also choose between a Sony PlayStation 4 500GB “Uncharted 4” console bundle or a Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB “Minecraft” favorites console bundle for $249.99 (regularly $299.99 each).

Additionally, consumers can shop select Black Friday deals online beginning Monday, Nov. 21. From Nov. 21-26, shoppers can earn $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent (redeemable Nov. 27 through Dec. 5).

Sam’s Club

Doors don’t open until Nov. 25 for the Sam’s Club Black Friday event, but the store’s online offerings kick off early on Thanksgiving Day. There are plenty of electronics up for grabs, including TVs, printers, laptops and smartphones. Many are eligible for free shipping.

Shoppers can save $250 on a HP 15.6-inch HD notebook and score a 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A bundle with a 32GB MicroSD card for $188.84. That’s $100 off the price that the tablet was selling for previously at the warehouse store. Keep in mind that there are limited quantities available on these items at Sam’s Club.

J.C. Penney

J.C. Penney is getting Black Friday started early — on Thanksgiving Day, with doors opening at 3 p.m. Online deals will be served up on the holiday, too.

The store’s sales include what J.C. Penney is calling “spotlight savings.” Here are some of the deals you’ll find: select boots for her for $19.99 each, 25% off select Nike styles for the family and up to 40% off appliances.


Staples has taken a stand against operating on Thanksgiving Day, so its doors won’t open until 6 a.m. Black Friday. But Staples’ Black Friday deals will arrive early for online customers on the holiday.

Among the ad’s highlights are an HP laptop for $229.99 (save $190) and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 tablet for $799 (save $200). Deals are available while supplies last, and there is a limit of one item each per customer.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on your purchases, you can place an order online on Thanksgiving and pick it up Black Friday. Visit for more information.


Wal-Mart customers can shop the majority of the retailer’s Black Friday deals on beginning at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thanksgiving morning. Then, Wal-Mart’s Black Friday event will begin in most stores at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving Day.

Some of the standout Black Friday deals include TVs, toys, drones and connected home items. The DJI Phantom Standard 3 drone will be $369 ($130 savings). The PlayStation 4 Slim “Uncharted 4” 500GB bundle will be $249 ($50 savings), plus it comes with a $30 gift card. And a Samsung 50-inch Smart 4K TV will be $398 ($230 savings).

Regardless of where you shop, be sure to read an entire Black Friday ad for full sale details. Store hours and product availability may vary by location. Also, look into return policies before buying. Some stores have extended return periods for the holidays.
