Every year, Black Friday promises big deals on TVs, cameras, games and other hot holiday gifts. 

In 2018, Black Friday officially falls on Friday, Nov. 23 -- the day after Thanksgiving. But we've seen more and more retailers in years' past start their sales early, often on Thanksgiving, right as the tryptophan is kicking in for the night.

Consumers can expect big sales both online and in-store from Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Target, GameStop, Kohl's, Sam's Club and many other retailers. Often the biggest discounts are only available in-store, which means you'll have to fight crowds to get them.
