What Time Does Black Friday Start? The Earliest 2015 Deals Require A Ton Of Caffeine

Since Black Friday has been starting earlier and earlier in the past few years, it's no longer an early-morning event as much as it is an all-nighter event. And this year, with some Black Friday deals starting as early as six o'clock on Thursday morning, you might have to make an extremely tough decision: Turkey or shopping? Don't worry though, not too many stores are actually starting their sales in the AM. But because there are enough staggered store openings throughout Thursday evening and into Friday morning, if you want to stay on top of all the deals, sleep isn't much of an option.

Of course, if you're not really one for battling the insane crowds found on Thanksgiv... er, I mean, "Black Friday," not only has the shopping event of the year encroached on Turkey Day, but it's also stealing Cyber Monday's thunder. Which means that many Black Friday deals are shoppable online. And while there may not necessarily be the same doorbusters as shopping in-person, many stores that are offering online Black Friday deals are actually starting these sales even earlier. So if you're ready to plan out your all-night shopping extravaganza, here's what we know so far about when Black Friday deals will begin. And yeah, you'll definitely want some coffee.
