Online retailer NewEgg previewed several Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on popular tech products, joining fellow retailers like Amazon and Walmart in offering discounts around the busy Thanksgiving shopping period.

Target also plans to offer Black Friday deals online starting Thanksgiving morning, but its stores won't open until 6 p.m. Thousands of deep discounts will be unlocked at 1 p.m. Of the deals that are expected to be open to the public from the 23rd of November is Walmart's; however, it is on Turkey Day only that it is set to be made available in stores.
