The Black Friday 2016 deals are available first online. Retailers have announced a wide range of times and dates when their online Black Friday sales begin. Here is your cheat sheet to not miss a deal in online Black Friday sales.

The schedule of when Black Friday 2016 sales begin online is much more complicated than the Black Friday store hours. Black Friday deals have been available online since November 1. The transition from pre Black Friday sales to the actual Black Friday sales becomes blurry.

Amazon has offered Black Friday deals in the Black Friday countdown sale. Starting Friday November 18, The Amazon Black Friday Deals Week is in effect. Amazon will host a 7-day Black Friday sale, offering the announced Black Friday 2016 deals somewhen in that week. Presumably the most coveted deals will be on sale on Thanksgiving Day, but the first deals will be available a week before Black Friday.

Kohl's has announced to start their online Black Friday 2016 sale online on Monday Nov 21.

The online Black Friday 2016 sales at Best Buy, Target, Sam's Club and Walmart begin midnight Thanksgiving Day. Some stores are on East coast time, while others are using Pacific. A couple stores did not specify an exact launch time to avoid server meltdowns.

What we also have seen last year that online stores launched many deals before the announced Black Friday start time. We recommend to go online starting at 8pm ET on Wednesday Nov. 23 to not miss any deals.

Find below the online Black Friday 2016 schedule featuring the most important online shops. We recommend to first shop online before heading out to the Black Friday sales events in stores.
