Black Friday has not officially started yet (the big day is tomorrow), but some of the best deals are already ready. From TVs for headphones, smart home gadgets and kitchen appliances, there are live sales at all major retailers.

CNET is here to help! We have investigated scans of newspaper ads, crawled reseller sites (Amazon, Goal, Walmart and Best buy, just to name a few) and found the deals you will not want to miss. Let’s break it all down for you.

These are the best Black Friday sales and deals live now:

  • Macy’s Black Friday sale started Tuesday

  • Best Buy’s sale started last Friday, including the lowest price ever on the Apple Watch SE
  • Target’s Black Friday sale started Sunday

Best Black Friday Deals on Best Buy

It’s a little late for the game, but Best Buy has finally revealed details of its sale taking place during the week of Black Friday. It’s not quite as cut and dried as some other retailers’ outlets, which have clear start and end dates, but in essence, Best Buy’s outlets have already started and will add more items in the coming days. There have already been a number of declines, which included good offers such as the first sale of the season on the Apple Watch SE. Here’s what you can expect from each wave of deals.

Best Black Friday Deals on Target

Target’s Black Friday sale has already begun and is running through Saturday the 27th of November. Target offers great savings on everything from technology to toys to home furnishings. This sneaky circular also advertises for the Nintendo Switch OLED, which has been notoriously hard to grab since it’s released in October, so keep an eye on the offer page and your local Targets stock if you’ve been hoping to get your hands on one. Here are some of the best Target deals at the moment.

Best Black Friday Deals on Amazon

In a recent press release, Amazon announced that it will run one 48-hour sale from 25 to 26 November, but the details of what will be included are rather vague (par for the course for a dealer who often keeps things close to the west). Some of the highlights include up to 40% off Instant Kitchen Appliances, up to 50% on select Four HD tablets and up to 30% on select Samsung, Sony and LG TVs. (Also a spoiler warning on Amazon devices: If you see other retailers like Target ad sales on them, it’s a sure bet that Amazon will sell them for the same price.) That said, Amazon also has great deals running straight now. Here are some of our favorites.
