Some of the country's biggest retailers aren't waiting until the Black Friday kickoff for the holiday shopping season.
Best Buy, Walmart, Sears and even Amazon are offering deep discounts on hot products starting this weekend.
They are launching Black Friday deals a week early, as Thanksgiving comes late this year. That means there are just 26 shopping days, compared to last year when there were 32.
This year, only 13 percent of Americans say they plan to shop on the real Black Friday.
That's down from 20 percent four years ago.
