CNN  — 

Black Friday is nearly here, and we’re more than happy to share the early deals. And trust us, there are a lot of them happening even earlier this year. We’re here to highlight a few more sales that feature an additional 20% off with the code “BFSAVE20” at checkout.

If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we love tech and tech sales. We’ve already covered a lot of the big names, such as Apple, Bose, Google and Samsung. From AirPods to Amazon Echos, it would be hard to avoid these sales. That being said, you may feel inundated by all the discounts, to a point where it’s hard to tell what’s worth it and what’s not. As usual, we try to focus on all the exciting deals, tech related or otherwise.

Of course, some of our highlights put the emphasis on the otherwise, since not everyone is looking for a new iPad or external battery. Folks are shopping for everything from fashion and health to gaming. We’ve even put an emphasis on fashion and functionality for those who are inclined to comfort. And although it may fall under the tech category for some, gaming is one of our major focuses this Black Friday week as well. We hope to keep you in the know about consoles and games so you can give your gamer the perfect gift.

That being said, we couldn’t help but return to the tech. There are just so many awesome items out there! Check out all the Black Friday sales happening at the CNN Store, or scroll through our top picks in this list.
