We’re still weeks away from the actual Black Friday, but Black Friday deals have already started showing up fashionably early. Does that mean the GQ Recommends team has had to suddenly ramp up our recon of Amazon, Walmart, Nordstrom, and all the other big box brutes? Yes. Does it also mean that everyone, yourself included, might be able to get your holiday shopping done long before enjoying a leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwich? Hypothetically, also yes. (Though let’s be real, probably not.)
Here in the calm before the storm, we’re seeing good-to-great deals across many of the categories that GQ scouts for Black Friday sales: tech and gadgets, menswear, sneakers, grooming products, home goods and kitchen appliances, travel (including luggage), and beyond. Particularly in tech and techy home goods, you can save a lot of money on various “last year’s models”—whether that’s vacuums, headphones, or Apple products.
We’re constantly compiling and updating the absolute cremè-de-la-cremè of early Black Friday deals in this guide, while also building out frequently-refreshed steals and bargains sourced from Amazon, Walmart, and Nordstrom at those links.
Keep checking back all month long for the absolute best early Black Friday deals 2023 has to offer.
