From Gizmodo - November 23, 2017

Tomorrow is officially Black Friday, but you can get a head start on the shopping with a ton of deals that are already available. You can find all of the best discount throughout the weekend on our main Black Friday post, but these are our 15 favorites that went live today.

Head over to our main post for more deals, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a chance to save. You can also join our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group to connect with your fellow deal hunters.

#1: ECHoes, Fire sticks, tablets & more

Amazons first-party gadgets are always hot commodities come the holidays, and all of their Black Friday deals (that we know of) are available now. There are too many products available to list out here, so see the full list in this post.

#2: a Sonos For every room

Its the most wonderful time of the buy Sonos stuff. A bunch of the high-end audio gear is on sale for Black Friday, including the first ever discount on the Alexa-equipped Sonos One, $50 off the still-great PLAY:1 and PLAY:3, and $100 savings on the PLAYBAR and PLAYBASE.

#3: clear the rack+

In a twist of fate, Nordstrom Rack is having a clearance sale for Black Friday thats even better than Clear the Rack. Starting today and going through Monday, you can get an additional 30% off Nordstrom Racks entire sale section, which is chock full of designer clothing in all styles.

#4: Sandisk Flash Storage

Theres no such thing as owning too much flash storage, and you can stock up on flash drives and SD cards in Amazon Black Friday sale.

I suspect that the most popular items here will be the high-capacity microSD cards, which are great for the action cams and Nintendo Switches you all are buying at this time of year. 128GB, 200GB, and 256GB cards are all down to all-time low prices.

#5: readers favorite blender

The Ninja Professional BL660 recently took home the title of your favorite affordable blender, and Amazons marked it down to $63, an all-time low, and $7 less than it was on Prime Day.

Thats far and away the best price weve ever seen, so if youre in the market, Id pull the trigger. The BL660 includes an 1100 watt motor, a 72 ounce pitcher, and a pair of single-serve smoothie cups so you dont have to clean the big pitcher every time you feel like making yourself a smoothie to go.

#6: simplehuman

simplehuman makes our readers favorite trash cans, the only paper towel holders that dont suck, next level shower caddies, and are just generally great at making beautiful and functional pieces for your home. The caveat is that theyre normally pretty expensive and very rarely offer any kind of discount. But, today is one of those rare days!

So check out the deals in this post. Most items are around 20% off their usual sale prices and we likely wont see a sale like this for a long time.

#7: a$58 Harmony Remote With an $88 Accessory

$58 for a Logitech Harmony remote is a great deal on its face, but the real reason to buy this model is the included Harmony Home Hub.

The Hub allows you to use your iPhone, Android device, or even an Amazon Echo to control everything a Harmony remote can (which is basically any piece of home theater gear you can think of). So even when you inevitably lose the included remote behind the couch cushions, youll still have multiple ways to take control of all of your home theater gear.

Considering the hub alone sells for $88 right now, getting the hub plus a remote for $58 is an unbelievable deal.

All of this also applies to the Harmony Companion remote, which is also on sale for $100. The main difference is that the remote features dedicated smart home buttons to control lights, outlets, or anything else you program.

#8: philips Hue smart lighting

Black Fridays here to brighten your day with an array of Philips Hue smart lighting deals.

In my opinion, the Hue White starter kit for $60 is a better way to get started than the more popular color bulbs. Most people wont turn their living room various shades of blue, but everyone can benefit from regular light bulbs that you can control with your phone or your voice. This kit gets you four bulbs and a Bridge, which can support up to 50 Hue products.

If you really do want the classic Hue colorful bulbs, theyre on sale for $40 each, which is about as cheap as they ever get.

Update: Now down to $32, easily the best price weve ever seen.

#9: Gaming Memberships

#10: $50 off xbox one bundles + Bonus Games

#11: $5 off Books

#12: wolfenstein ii

#13: essentialkitchenaid mixer

#14: fitbit

#15: sony noise canceling Headphones
