Just like Black Friday, retailers are stretching out the deals to make the most of the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Many of those deals are in electronics and toys. WalMart, for example, is offering an iPad mini for $279 or a 46-inch TV for $478.
Amazon has huge deals on toys with 50-percent off on Barbie, Fisher-Price and Mattel.
