Man, Black Friday sales start earlier and earlier every year. When I worked at Best Buy 12 years ago, we opened at 4am. A few years ago, stores started opening at midnight. And then last year some started their sales Thanksgiving evening.
This year, retailers are taking things to the next level. Polygon is reporting a lot of Black Friday ad leaks. Best Buy and Target are actually starting their sales on November 9th! And Amazon is already running “Countdown to Black Friday” deals.
Here are a few other notable links from the Polygon article.
- Amazon has a “Countdown to Black Friday” sale going on with new sales every day.
- Wal-Mart has a pre-Black Friday sale going on.
- Sam’s Club is having a “Holiday Savings Celebration” on Saturday, November 15th.
