Amazon has decided to push Black Friday marketing up to the first Friday in November, a full 3 weeks earlier than usual for this "traditional" first and biggest Christmas-Hanukkah shopping day of the season.
Above, Amazon's home page, as it looked on November 3, with a link to "Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week." Each countdown day comes with its own deals, of course.
Walmart is promoting its own preholiday, online specials here, calling them "our lowest prices of the year." And the store is also reminding those who love to shop online not to forget Cyber Monday!
Dell has its Black Friday specials ready for shoppers right now. And if you want the inside info on Target's Cyber Monday specials, sign up for its e-mail news.
'Tis the season to comparison shop.
