If you’re itching to do a little holiday gift shopping, you’re in luck.

More retailers are rolling out early Black Friday sales extra early this year. So, while the actual Black Friday is three weeks out — falling on Nov. 24 this year — we’ve rounded up several sales already going on at nationwide chains.

Of course, you should still do your homework by taking a minute to compare prices online. Early deals include true steals, but sometimes you might want to try your luck by waiting to see if a price drops later this month.

As always, don’t forget to boost your savings by paying with discounted gift cards from gift card exchanges and by earning rebates from cash-back portals.

Amazon

On Nov. 1, the e-commerce giant opened its Black Friday Deals Store, which Amazon says is offering deals across every category now through Black Friday. A company announcement explains:

“Customers can find deals on everything from toys and electronics to holiday entertaining essentials and wardrobe must haves – all in one convenient location. Today, customers can save up to 30% on favorite toys including Baby Alive Sweet Tears, DropMix [music gaming system], Tickle Me Elmo and more. This holiday season, customers can also expect great deals on premium TVs … as well as popular toys …”
