With only a few days left until the biggest shopping day of the year, we're sharing what deals to shop and how to make the most out of Black Friday this year.

Black Friday 2022 - Shopping Tips

Shop early Black Friday sales now.

We're seeing early sales with great discounts from many stores Walmart, Macy's, JCPenney, Kohl's and more.

Know what you’re going to buy, as well as when and where to buy it.

Don’t just make a list – make a schedule. Use our collection of Black Friday circulars to research, and read the fine print on every item that catches your eye. Is it already available in an early Black Friday sale, is it available online or in-store only? Is it only on sale for a specific day?

Download the Brad’s Deals app.

Our team will be posting the best Black Friday deals all day every day, including deals from retailers who don’t publish circulars, who you’d never thought to check. The Brad’s Deals app is available for both iOS and Android.

Set up deal alerts on the items you’re looking for.

If you’re waiting for the perfect deal on something specific, our Deal Alerts feature is for you. Just create an alert for your item (e.g. “cashmere sweater” or “North Face”) and we’ll send you a notification when we post a deal that matches your alert.

Black Friday 2022 - Categories to Shop


Smart TVs: We’ll see some great discounts on the mid-range and lower-tier sets. Since demand has been down all year, OLED and QLEDs may see some decent—though likely not significant—discounts as well. The chip shortage is easing, but shipping ports are still reporting delays. Due to scarcity-driven demand, we may not see many good deals on large products that relied heavily on chips, like appliances.

Video Game Consoles: Many retailers will offer holiday bundles with the PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox.

Shoes & Apparel

Retailers are still seeing overstocks of apparel and shoes from pre-pandemic consumer demand. We're already seeing some great discounts from retailers hoping to clear shelves and start fresh in 2023.


Vacuums: If you are looking for a robot vacuum, Amazon recently acquired Roomba so expect to see some deals during Black Friday.

Bedding & Towels: Our editors expect we’ll witness some of the lowest prices of the year, especially on the lower-priced towels and comforter sets we see each year during Black Friday sales.
