The first full weekend of November is here and Black Friday deals are looking strong. This week alone we've seen OLED TV prices tumble to $549 (an all-time price low) as retailers launch aggressive dollar-off discounts on Apple's hottest gear, including the newly-announced MacBook Pros.

There are still two more weekends left before Thanksgiving, but if you want to get your shopping out of the way early — now is the time to do it. Best Buy, Amazon, and Target are just a few of the major retailers offering sitewide discounts this weekend. That's not to say every deal out there is worth your investment.

I've been covering Black Friday deals for 15 years and throughout my professional career I've learned to separate the good deals from the bad. So below I'm rounding up all of the best early Black Friday sales you can shop. I've carefully vetted and selected these deals because they're at their lowest price ever or because I don't foresee them getting significantly cheaper in the days to come. So if you want to get your holiday shopping done early — here are the deals I'd shop right now.

The Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 is one of the best portable chargers you can buy. It's able to charge up your smartphone multiple times and the 10,000 mAh battery comes housed in a rugged casing. The lack of USB-C output is a disappointment, but it's otherwise a travel essential. And it's now on sale for just $12.

The INIU 10000mAh Portable Charger is our top pick for the best portable charger you can buy.

Blink Mini Camera (3-Pack): was $100 now $39 @ Amazon
If you need to cover multiple rooms on a budget you can grab three Blink Minis for just $39 — $60 off the original price (just a single Blink Mini costs $35). These affordable cameras still pack a crisp 1080p resolution which makes out people and objects in motion. Notifications hit your devices within seconds and the cameras' infrared night vision mode makes it easy to see what's happening even in pitch-black rooms like a basement. Keep in mind that if you're away often and want to save recordings, you'll need to pay a subscription fee. However, they make great monitors for motion notifications and dropping into live feeds to check up on kids, pets, and even doorway activity.

Nectar: was $599 now $359 @ Nectar
Editor's Choice! Our favorite value mattress is now on sale. In our Nectar mattress review , we called the Editor's Choice mattress a tremendous value for the money.

Bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee. As part of its current sale — you can get the twin mattress for $359 (was $599) or the queen for $699 (was $1,049).

LG A2 48" 4K OLED TV: was $1,299 now $549 @ Best Buy
Editor's Choice! The A2 is LG's entry-level OLED. In our LG A2 OLED review , we said it offers a wonderfully colorful picture and fairly strong audio. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG's webOS platform, and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa. Console gamers take note: It's a budget model, so you only get a 60Hz panel and three HDMI ports, with no HDMI 2.1 support. Otherwise, it's great for casual gaming and streaming. The 48-inch model is a Best Buy exclusive. It's now at its lowest price ever and the least-expensive OLED TV we've ever seen.
