Newegg's Black Friday sales starts ahead of Thanksgiving

Electronics and computer superstore opened its Black Friday sale on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, at 1 p.m. PST. The sale runs through the weekend and ends on Nov. 25, Sunday.

In addition, the email sent to subscribers promises that those subscribing to the site's newsletter would get a surprise on Black Friday, Nov. 23. The email urges recipients to keep an eye on their inbox on Black Friday, and that something "amazing" might be coming.

Of course, Newegg should know that a "tip" like that actually makes us want to hold off on buying anything until we see that email, for fear we might buy something sans a great deal.

Shoppers should remember that Newegg has expanded, and sells things like clothes, housewares, and more in addition to computer supplies and electronics. For example, a look at Newegg's Black Friday site, now that it has opened, shows:
  • Landing Leathers Men's Air Force A-2 Flight Leather Bomber Jacket in Black or Brown - $99
  • BGSD Men's 'Richard' Wind Resistant Hooded Jacket - $69
  • Burberry Brit Perfume By Burberry - $36
  • and a lot more.

Notably, those in California, New Jersey and Tennessee will have to pay sales tax. Working in Newegg's favor this year is the fact that is now charging sales tax on items sold to California buyers.

Newegg somehow managed to keep its Black Friday sale "secret" until now.
