It’s the e-commerce equivalent of former host of “The Bachelor” saying, “This is the most dramatic season yet” every year. Black Friday continues to creep up earlier and earlier — and we compiled the best early deals to grab while they’re still hot.

“According to LTK’s 2023 LTK Holiday Shopper Study, saving money on holiday purchases is critical for shoppers, and they’re planning ahead to take advantage of major sales, especially Black Friday,” Ally Anderson, director of strategy and insights at LTK, a leading creator-led shopping platform, exclusively told the New York Post. “This year, 42% of the general population plans to save money with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, marking a 35% increase from last year.”

When is Black Friday 2023?

This year, Black Friday will take place on Nov. 24, with Cyber Monday following suit on Nov. 27. However, the New York Post anticipates plenty of brands and retailers to host promotions starting as early as Nov. 22 (“Cyber Week), with some already live — as listed in our list below.

Is it better to shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

The golden question, right? While online shopping has taken over not just the post-Thanksgiving times (but has ignited year-round activity), this ask is common among consumers whose primary interest is adding the right deal to their carts — at the right time.

“Traditionally, Black Friday was for brick-and-mortar stores and Cyber Monday was for e-commerce,” Christian Piller, co-founder and chief commercial officer of Pollen Returns, a retail returns pickup technology platform, told The Post. “More recently, some retailers have not opened their stores on Black Friday, so employees could spend more time with their families but offered similar deals through their websites. Now, I don’t think there’s much of a difference in-terms of deals to be had given that the majority of shopping is done online.”

What are the best deals to shop for during Black Friday 2023?

While it’s not Nov. 24 quite yet, a fair deal of early deals are better than we’ve ever seen (and this isn’t our first rodeo reporting on Black Friday). Ahead, our retail experts dish out what to look out for.

“We’ve seen year-on-year increases in the number of people intending to buy a drone (+14%), a smart security product like a Ring camera (+12%), as well as both smart TVs (+10%) and flatscreen TVs (+10%),” Chris Beer, data journalist at consumer insights platform GWI, tipped off to The Post.

Consumer tech is a category The Post recommends following ahead of Black Friday, too, as deals are historically greater around this time compared to July and October Amazon Prime events.

Moreover, Anderson forecasts the “cult classics” will take the throne this holiday season. “Of the top products for holiday right now, we’re seeing a significant amount of products that have become fan favorites across categories, like the Stanley Tumbler ($20 to $60), UGG Slippers ($110) or the lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag ($38),” she notes. “We think these items will continue to be winners through the holiday season.”
