Now playing: Watch this: Black Friday and other turkey traditions are evolving

Black Friday inches closer with everyday. In anticipation, retailers have published previews of this year's Black Friday deals. But some retailers want to give you a good deal right now -- before any turkey is served. Here are some of our favorite pre-Black Friday deals.

Amazon really wants you to get a deal

It's always a safe bet that Amazon will have some kind of deal going on. But as Black Friday gets closer, Amazon is adding new deals each day. To quote Amazon, "The party is just getting started." Here are a few things that we like:

Best Buy lives up to its name

We've seen a preview of what Best Buy is offering up for Black Friday, but the retailer's pre-Black Friday deals deserve a good look, too. Currently Best Buy has great deals on smartphones, computers and Samsung televisions. Some of the biggest savings are on appliances. You can save 10-40 percent off appliances right now -- everything from refrigerators and dishwashers to washers and dryers. Here are some other deals worth a look:

  • The iPhone 7 has a beautiful design, a great camera, a good battery and is water resistant. Right now, you can get up to a $250 Best Buy gift card when you buy an iPhone 7 on a monthly installment plan. The fine print here is that this deal doesn't apply to the iPhone 7 Plus, and the gift card amount is dependent on which iPhone 7 model you buy. Check out our iPhone 7 review for more information about Apple's flagship phone.
  • You can pick up a Microsoft 13-inch Surface Book for $1,250 (save $250). It has an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory and a 128GB solid-state drive for storage. Microsoft's Surface Book is a powerful, feature-filled premium hybrid that doesn't forget it's a laptop first. Read more about what we liked and didn't like in our Microsoft Surface Book review.
  • Best Buy also has the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 for $800 (save $200). The Surface Pro 4 is the best Windows tablet you can buy. This one comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage. For more on what we thought about Surface Pro 4, check out our review.
  • There's the Samsung 40-inch 4K television for just $299 (save $150).
  • If you're looking for something a little bit bigger, there's the Samsung 55-inch 4K television for $550 (save $150).
  • And if what if you want your screen curved? There's a Samsung 55-inch Curved 4K television for $1,100 (save $300).
  • Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are two of CNET's favorite phones. We even selected each of them as an Editors' Choice. You can get $450 in Best Buy gift cards when you trade in a working smartphone and buy a Samsung S7 or S7 Edge on a monthly installment plan.
  • Save $150 when you buy an HP Spectre x360 for $1,050. The Spectre x360 has a slick aluminum body, smooth 360-degree hinges, an excellent display and long battery life. It's a great Windows laptop with a 2-in-1 design. This midrange model comes with a Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory and a 256GB solid-state drive. For more about the HP Spectre x360, take a look at our review.

There are very few Black Friday deals for the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. But eBay is selling them for $30 off as part of its pre-Black Friday deals.

eBay is bidding for your wallet with these deals

You can save up to 70 percent off with eBay's pre-Black Friday deals. Here are a few of the more noteworthy ones:

  • This is one of the few Sony PlayStation 4 Pro deals for Black Friday or otherwise. You can get a PS4 Pro for $370 (save $30). The PS4 Pro outputs a 4K- and HDR-signal that's compatible with high-end TVs. It promises better visuals and increased frame rates for certain games than the PS4. The console includes a 1TB hard drive, and it works with all PS4 games, apps and accessories. Read our full Sony PS4 Pro review for a more in-depth look.
  • This is a tremendous deal on a vacuum robot: get a Rooba 860 for $420 (save $280). The 860 uses a lithium ion battery and a brushless cleaning system.

    For $420 your cat could have a sweet Roomba!

  • Looking for a serious full-frame dSLR camera? Well, eBay has got your back. You can get a Nikon D810 (body only) for $1,999 (save $800) The D810 has a 36-megapixel full-frame sensor. It is weather sealed and has some of the best image quality for any camera. Read more of our thoughts on the Nikon D810 in our preview.
  • Snag an unlocked 64GB iPhone SE for $430 (save $20). The iPhone SE is a great choice for small phone fans. It packs nearly every worthwhile feature (processor, great camera, Apple Pay, always-on Siri) from iPhone 6S into a smaller, more affordable 4-inch phone. Find out more about this phone in our iPhone SE review.

The rare Apple discount: get up to $64 off an iPad Mini 4 at Walmart.
