Holiday Insider: The Best Black Friday Deals

Holiday Insider: The Best Black Friday Deals

Posted: Updated:

Thanksgiving weekend is here, and with that comes the official start of the holiday shopping season.

While many retailers introduced Black Friday deals early this year -- some as early as November 1 -- it doesn’t mean they didn’t save a few for the traditional day-after-Thanksgiving rush (or in some cases, day OF Thanksgiving rush). There are still some great, untapped deals to be had, both in the stores and online. We got a sneak peek at some of those deals, and have picked the very best ones to feature here. Get out your shopping lists!

Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, $199 - available starting at midnight on Black Friday on Dell.com
