While Black Friday might be a few weeks away, Amazon and other major retailers have already started to offer early Black Friday deals for shoppers across Canada! And while the intent of these sales varies from name to name, one thing stays consistent- you can start shopping them right now.

First up is Amazon Canada, which has unleashed a massive sale covering practically every category. Buy a new stationary bike, stock up on stocking stuffers, or browse through the home goods to spruce up the place for the holidays!

Then, we’ve got Best Buy, for the most tech-specific shoppers. Here, you’ll find deals on TVs and computers to small appliances. You know, just in case your current vacuum cleaner has started to give out on you. Heck, grab a speaker system to make your next movie time pop.

In contrast, the Canadian-born skincare company DECIEM has decided to do away with Black Friday altogether. Their alternative? Slowvember, which offers 23% off everything on the site for the month of November. Well, almost the whole month- they’ll be shutting down both the stores and the website for Black Friday.

And in a similar vein as DECIEM, IKEA is opting for a month-long approach eschewing the Black Friday frenzy. Their approach, Green Friday, is offering 1.5x the sell-back credit of gently used furniture, encouraging people to swap out instead of add-on. Then, later in the month, IKEA Family members will get an additional 25% off items in the as-is section.

And while a wide range of other retailers aside from Amazon and the others listed have Black Friday on their minds, these are the ones offering deals (or incentives) today! Make the most of it to avoid a Friday shopping frenzy, folks.
