Black Friday won't even officially begin for a little over a month, but big retailers are already preparing to roll out their deals and sales earlier than ever before, with some items seeing prices slashed as early as Nov. 1--and in some cases, even earlier than then.  

According to Best Black Friday, which often accurately predicts some of the trends for the holiday shopping season, the expected official kickoff date for stores to offer special incentives related to Black Friday and the holiday season overall will be the beginning of next month, significantly earlier than Black Friday or even Thanksgiving itself, which doesn't hit until Nov. 24.  

No specific deals or special incentives have been announced just yet by some of the most popular retailers, but it appears that the plan to move things up is still very much in effect. Macy's has officially announced they would already begin their Black Friday sale itself one hour earlier than usual, at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Night, and is likely to announce possible other sales before then to bring shoppers in.  

Kmart and Sears have also already begun with their incentives for the holiday shopping season, with Kmart bringing back their No Money Down Layaway back in September, and even gave shoppers an incentive to make a purchase of $50 or more by giving them an instant $10 discount for doing so. Sears has also started early, with a special event on Oct. 16 which allowed members to have a guarantee that they would get items for the lowest prices throughout the holiday season, by picking up an item in the store, and receiving a credit for the price difference in Shop Your Way points if the item was priced lower in the same store anytime through Christmas Eve.  

The creep of early deals has been progressively growing throughout the years, with Walmart previously beginning sales on Nov. 1 in 2014 and Oct. 31 in 2015, a 24-hour holiday cyber savings event, and their own earlier layaway program. Best Buy has also previously announced special savings events the last two years a few weeks before Black Friday where shoppers saw Black Friday like discounts on items like iPads, Macbooks, Curved TVs and popular gaming systems.  

Neither one has yet revealed any plans for the holiday season just yet, though announcements about early savings and deals, as well as Black Friday plans themselves, are expected to be made in the coming weeks.
