And while the 77-inch version, at $7,000, is currently priced $2,000 below what LG suggests, you've been able to purchase it at that price point for the past few months. LG is also offering discounts on its Super UHD SK9000 series of LEDs.

Black Friday will kick off a four-day Apple shopping event


Why should Black Friday be limited to just one day? In 2018, Apple is holding a four-day shopping event from Nov. 23 to Nov. 26. Typically, it holds a one-day sale at retail locations, online, and through the Apple Store App, and the discounts aren't that generous. In the past, Apple has done things like make the 10 percent student discount available to all shoppers, and offer gift cards, like a $150 credit for a Mac purchase. Apple could go in an entirely new direction for 2018.

Dell has launched a bunch of early access Black Friday deals

This is an exciting time for technology deals, and we're expecting a lot of impressive discounts on all the biggest names in the coming weeks. You could bide your time and wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, or you could save yourself a whole lot of hassle by taking advantage of Dell's early access deals. We're not making any promises regarding these deals, because Black Friday is an unpredictable beast. Even better deals could drop as we get closer to the big day, but they might not.
