Listen, we know it’s Thanksgiving, but you have plenty of downtime to dig into the best Black Friday deals, which are already hitting a fever pitch. If you’ve been following GQ Recommends, you know that we’ve been tracking all the early Black Friday deals since we were still wearing shorts. There are so many early sales worth browsing that you could quite possibly get your holiday shopping and gift giving done long before the tryptophan-induced food coma hits. That way, when the actual Black Friday rolls around (tomorrow), you can sleep through your turkey hangover.
Here in the short-lived calm before the storm, we’re seeing good-to-great deals across many of the categories that GQ scouts for Black Friday sales: tech and gadgets, menswear, sneakers, grooming products, home goods and kitchen appliances, travel (including luggage), and beyond. Particularly in tech and tech-y home goods, you can save a lot of money on various “last year’s models”—whether that’s vacuums, headphones, or Apple products.
We’re constantly compiling and updating the absolute cremè-de-la-cremè of early Black Friday deals in this guide, while also building out frequently-refreshed steals and bargains sourced from Amazon, Walmart, and Nordstrom at those links.
