Over the past few years we’ve seen a growing number of retailers starting their “Black Friday” sales on Thanksgiving Day instead of the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Now Dell is just throwing tradition to the wind and offering up some so-called Black Friday deals today. On November 1st. Go figure.

Under other circumstances, I’d probably just call this an excuse for a sale. But Dell’s not the only one giving us sale prices under the “Black Friday” banner 23 days early. Amazon has also launched its “Countdown to Black Friday Hub.”

For the most part, Amazon’s early Black Friday deals look a lot like the company’s typical “Gold Box Deals,” which is to say the discounts available today are pretty much the same as the sort of discounts Amazon offers every day. But keep an eye on that hub and you’ll probably find more items on sale in the coming weeks.

As for Dell, the company is providing a sneak peek at some of its actual Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices. But if you don’t want to wait, here are some of the best deals that the company is offering between 8:00AM Eastern on Nov 1st and 8:–AM Eastern on Nov 3rd:

  1. The Dell 11 3000 convertible is straight garbage. Somewhere along the hinge the keyboard flexible connector and the touch screen flexible connector get damage and result in intermittent dropouts.

  2. Has anyone else used the Nest family of products? My first Google Home device is arriving today, and am interested in hooking up a security camera or two and/or a thermostat. Is the premium you pay for that brand worth it?
