The calendar has rolled over to November and multiple retailers today kicked off pre-Black Friday savings, including eBay and Amazon. On eBay, the company has begun its "11 Days of Deals" event, which will provide a rolling list of savings on tech, apparel, and more, beginning with discounts on a trio of Apple devices.
Today is the first day of the event, and eBay is discounting the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and AirPods for today only, and all of the items are sold as new. These are the unlocked and full-price versions of the new iPhone XS, and one of the first straight cash discounts we've seen on the 2018 devices. For AirPods, eBay's sale is also one of the lowest prices available online today.

If you're interested, check out the deals below and head over to eBay to place your order before new bargains replace the Apple deals tomorrow:
iPhone XS 64GB - $979.00, down from $999.00
iPhone XS Max 64GB - $1,079.00, down from $1,099
AirPods - $139, down from $159
Amazon has also debuted early deals for Black Friday, opening up an entire section for the weeks leading up to the shopping holiday. You can shop by Amazon Devices, Toys and Games, Computers and Accessories, Home, Electronics, and more, and many of these deals function similarly to Amazon's classic Lightning deals and Prime Day deals, lasting only a set amount of time. We've listed a few shopping ideas below, but there are many more to be found if you visit Amazon's Black Friday 2018 page.
