Here at HuffPost, I edit Shopping stories all day, from daily sales to big savings events like Prime Day and Black Friday to articles with recommendations and insight from experts. When you fact-check prices and go deep into the retail landscape for a living, you get pretty good at identifying deals that are actually worthwhile and super enthusiastic about sharing products that are truly, actually marked down to that’s-a-steal prices.
I love being able to let readers know when they can be confident they’re getting a low price on something that enhances their life or solves a problem or makes a great gift, so there’s really no more exciting time than a whole sales weekend that spans most major retailers just before gifting season. Although I’ll be adding deals to this list every day as more and more sales go live the closer we get to actual Black Friday, there are plenty of amazing deals you can grab now. Here are the ones I’m excited to jump on myself and share with others, and I’ll explain why below for each one.
(Note: Walmart’s Black Friday deals will go live online on Wednesday — at noon for Walmart+ members and at 3 p.m. for the general public — but I went ahead and included my favorites now so you can know what’s coming and make the best shopping decision for yourself and your wallet!)
