'Tis the season for retailers to slash prices on coveted items in a variety of product categories for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend including Black Friday. No matter if you plan to brave the in-store crowds looking for the best doorbusters or keep it cozy and shop online from the comfort of your couch, the deals are plentiful.
We talked with several smart shopping gurus to get the lowdown on which Black Friday bargains are worth your consideration at Costco, Amazon.com, Target and Walmart. This year, holiday shoppers can score up to 50% on everything from air fryers to toys to widescreen TVs. Take a look.
In true Amazon fashion, the e-commerce giant undercut the competition by kicking off its Black Friday specials several days earlier than most on November 22. Every day until November 29, online shoppers can go to Amazon.com/BlackFriday to find new deals on a wide variety of product categories for up to 50% off -- from electronics to home goods to skincare.
