Black Friday doorbuster

With this year's Black Friday sales, retailers are pulling out all the stops to earn your patronage. For some, that means extending Thanksgiving and Black Friday store hours or ramping up price-matching policies. However, many merchants are going the extra mile and quietly dropping their prices days ahead of schedule, meaning you can score some of Black Friday's best deals right now. We've rounded up even more items that were already marked down to their advertised Black Friday price or lower. As with all Black Friday deals, these items are likely to go fast, so catch 'em while you can!

  • NEW: Samsung Galaxy S4 for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon for free at Best Buy
    There are hundreds of Android smartphones on the market, but the undisputed king remains the Galaxy S4. Best Buy is offering this phone for free (with a 2-year contract renewal) a full day ahead of schedule. That's $100 under the best deal we've seen and a bargain you simply cannot beat.

  • NEW: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8" 16GB Android Tablet for $199.99 at Staples
    Let's put this price drop into perspective: Today you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8" tablet at Staples for $50 less than you'd pay for it on Black Friday at Office Depot, H.H. Gregg, OfficeMax, Kmart, Sears, and Toys "R" Us. Apply coupon code "18702" to get this Android tablet for $200, a $60 price drop from our previous mention and the lowest price we've ever seen.

  • NEW: ASUS Nexus 7 7" 16GB Android Tablet for $179 at Staples
    This pre-Black Friday price drop is super sweet: When you apply coupon code "18702", you can get this tablet for $20 under Staples' Black Friday price. Better yet, this price is an all-time low that beats our own prediction for this tablet by $21.

  • NEW: Seiki 39" 120Hz 2160p 4K Ultra LED HDTV for $482.99 at Amazon
    Although Amazon's offer beats out Sears' Black Friday price, we actually saw this 4K TV for $9 less earlier this week. That said, most merchants charge $589 or more for this set.

  • NEW: Samsung 51" 720p Plasma HDTV for $427.99 at Walmart or Abt
    We typically try to steer clear of 720p TVs these days, but this $428 51" plasma is too irresistible to ignore. Although this HDTV dropped to its Black Friday price of $427 yesterday (today, it's a buck more), it's still $22 under our August mention and the second-lowest price we've ever seen for any new Samsung 51" plasma HDTV.

  • NEW: Keurig K45 Elite Brewer with K-Cup Carousel Tower, $30 Kohl's Cash for $105.38 at Kohl's
    This pre-Black Friday bundle will make coffee-lovers rejoice: After coupon code "BLACKFRI", you'll get the Keurig Elite Brewer, a K-Cup carousel tower, and $30 in Kohl's Cash for you to spend between December 2 and December 9 for just $105. Assuming you'll use the Kohl's Cash, that beats Meijer's Black Friday offer (which doesn't include the carousel) and it's $45 under the best price we could find for the bundle elsewhere.

  • Apple iPad Air 16GB WiFi Tablet with $100 Fry's Gift Card for $479 at Fry's Electronics
    If you live near a Fry's, then you don't have to wait for Target's iPad Air deal to go live. We expected the iPad Air's price to drop by 12% during this holiday season. But if you count the $100 gift card, then Fry's price is 24% off Apple's list price. Considering that the best price we'd previously seen for this model was $449, this promotion is a fantastic deal on the current-gen iPad.

  • 5th Generation Apple iPod touch 16GB MP3 Player with $50 Target Gift Card for $229 at Target
    Attention Target REDcard members: You might have early access to several of Target's Black Friday deals. Case in point, you can pick up the 5th-gen iPod touch with a $50 Target gift card days before everyone else. Assuming you'll use the gift card, it's like getting the new iPod touch for a mere $179.

  • Dell Inspiron 15 Haswell 1.6GHz 16" LED-Backlit Laptop for $449.99 at Dell Home
    We're not sure why Dell Home decided to beat its own price for this Inspiron 15, but we're not complaining! Apply coupon code "HF08ZLDCXJM19W" to get this laptop for $50 under what Dell Home will charge on Black Friday. Featuring a shiny new Core i5 Haswell CPU, this workhorse laptop has 6GB of RAM and a 750GB hard drive. Best of all, $450 is the lowest price we've ever seen for a Haswell-equipped Inspiron 15.

  • 50% off select Fisher-Price and Playskool Toys at Kohl's
    Kohl's surprised us all by popping the cork on more than 500 Black Friday deals today, including taking 50% off a much bigger selection of toys than we saw in its leaked Black Friday ad. It's still the largest discount we've seen on Fisher-Price and Playskool toys specifically since last Black Friday, when Bealls cut 60% off. The usual caveat applies: several of these toys will be cheaper in the lead-up to Christmas, but if you need to get your shopping done early, here's your chance.

  • Seiki 55" 120Hz 4K Ultra LED HDTV for $849.99 at Sears
    This pre-Black Friday price drop is good and all, but it's not awesome. Right now Sears is selling Seiki's 55" SE55UY04 at the Black Friday price of $850, but a week ago the retailer offered this same set for $825. We're going to give Sears the benefit of the doubt in this case; maybe they'll drop the price again on Black Friday. (Besides, we don't recommend buying a 4K Ultra HDTV just yet anyway.)

These are all the best live Black Friday deals we could find for now, but there's sure to be more pre-Black Friday price drops in the next 24 hours. In the price wars of Black Friday 2013, it seems like anything goes. Retailers are keeping us on our toes this year, but we'll be sure to bring you the latest, greatest price drops as we come across them. Be sure to keep checking our Black Friday deals page for all the latest news, ads, and analyses.
