With Black Friday near, there's no better time to go ahead and purchase that big ticket item you've been eyeing. If you're like us, media and tech toys are at the top of the list!

Televisions are always a hot item in stores on Black Friday. But, thanks to the internet, you can already score huge deals and skip the lines. Walmart, for instance, has already dropped a bunch of new Samsung TVs down to Black Friday prices. We don't expect them to drop any lower, so go ahead and spruce up your media cabinet for the holidays with a new TV.

Then, maybe add a tablet or phone to your cart as well.

Yes, this year, you can get big savings before the actual madness on Friday begins. Bookmark our Black Friday 2018 guide to see all of the best deals.
