It is believed to be called Black Friday because many shops see the biggest profits of the year on the day, so they detail their gains in black ink rather than having losses in red ink, but there are other theories. This particular deal is one of Target's most well-loved promos.

And Friday Amazon is offering various kinds of Mega Bloks for up to 40 percent off. The store says they are offering great deals to further stretch the shopping budget of buyers.

Although Black Friday is still a few weeks away, bargain hunters are most likely preparing to get their hands on the best deals that will be available on the said day.

Shoppers looking for more convenience and less chaos are clicking more, choosing online retailers over brick-and-mortar stores. The company toned down the significance of the anticipated holiday season sale.

This year, the National Retail Federation expects sales between November and December - excluding autos, gas and restaurant sales - to increase 3.6 percent to $655.8 billion year-over-year.

Responses from the survey indicate a decreasing trend of shoppers during the sale event that started a year ago.

Per NJ.com, the countdown to Black Friday already started for Amazon as early as last Tuesday, where products like e-readers, engagement rings, and winter coats already have nearly unbeatable deals. A discount of 30 percent is also being offered on the iPhone accessories as a part of iPhone accessories bundle when you buy three.Although no official announcement regarding iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus has been made, it is expected that T-Mobile Best Black Friday 2016 Deals will offer Apple's latest iPhones at heavy discounts, alongside its iPhone SE deal. "Shopping online for Black Friday (and) Cyber Monday is more efficient", Gordon says. "I get free shipping with Amazon Prime".

Walmart also said that it will be offering a 70-inch Vizio 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for less than a $1,000 in the coming days of its month-long holiday shopping season.

Still, some consumers prefer the traditional mall experience, braving the frenzied store lines and (at times, frightening) mall Santas. "For example, clothes, jewelry, gift cards", says Steve Cardillo, 50, a resident of Englishtown, New Jersey.

Last week, in an online discussion of industry heads of the Retailwire Brain Trust, believed that e-commerce is not the only aspect affecting Black Friday.

They want to eliminate "door busters" stress and focus their attention on caring for their employee's welfare during holidays.
