    It’s still rather early in November, but Black Friday has more or less arrived. Almost every major retailer has announced its deals, including Best Buy, Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Costco. Among them, there are a few deals that eager shoppers can hop on right now. Of course, each store wants you to brave the madness on Black Friday to snag the doorbuster offers, but, by and large, you’ll be able to shop most of these deals right from your computer or phone at home.

    There are some pretty great Black Friday deals already available. The best ones that we’ve seen so far are below, along with some other deals that are happening right now that we think you should know about.

    Pixel 3 promotions have dried up a bit since the phone launched in mid-October, though Best Buy’s is certainly worth jumping on if you were planning to buy it now or during the holiday season.

    Nvidia’s capable Android TV streaming box, the Shield TV, is $40 off of its usual price and comes with Amazon’s third-gen Echo Dot for free with purchase.

    Of the retailers that have launched pre-Black Friday promos, Best Buy has the most appealing list of offers, with more deals becoming available as the month proceeds. Here’s what you can get right now until late Sunday night:

    1More is offering readers of The Verge a 25 percent off discount on its headphones that stacks on top of its current promotion for even more savings. Vlad Savov called the company’s Triple Driver in-ear headphones “the best headphones $99 can buy,” and they are even cheaper with the offer code VERGE25 used at checkout.

    While we’re on the topic of headphones, the excellent Jabra Elite 65t true wireless headphones are $50 off at Amazon. Still a pretty solid deal at $169.99, you can pick them up right now for $119.99.

    The Verge’s Holiday Gift Guide 2018 launched this past week, and if you need some gift ideas, it’s certainly worth digging into. We’ve worked with a few companies to offer some exclusive deals for readers, so enjoy some savings on us.

    As a small token of our appreciation for your readership, we have even more exclusive deals that you can check out. As we move closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, keep it locked to The Verge.
