One of the first real Black Friday ads is finally here, and it's Kohl's 2018 catalog that's kicking off the festivities this year. Kohl's shares have rallied 80.5% over the last 12 months, outpacing the S&P 500 index, which is up 6.2% for the period.

According to the company, order pickup will be available for most items on Thanksgiving and Black Friday along with Drive Up service. Retailers like Amazon often begin their deals early on. But now that it's out there, you can start planning your holiday shopping a few days early. Amazon will not post its Black Friday 2018 ad until big three retailers - Best Buy, Target and Walmart - publish their ads.

"We embrace our decision to remain closed on Thanksgiving and continue to welcome over 200,000 guests from around the world on Black Friday", Jill Renslow, the mall's senior vice president of marketing and business development, said in a statement.

Target's checkout technology is the company's latest innovation created to make shopping easier.

Expect Amazon to focus its Alexa-powered Echo, Kindle and Fire products on its Black Friday Deals Store as well as on homepage.

With that out of the way, let's look at the video game deals.

With Halloween now in the rearview, we can all officially start celebrating the holiday season loud and proud by cranking up the Christmas music, drafting our holiday wish lists, and of course, strategizing our Black Friday shopping sprees. Target announced last month that it would expand free two-day delivery to all items from November 1 to December 22. Free shipping is included on purchases of $75 or more. Apart from the free two-day delivery, Prime members may also enjoy early access to all the deals, unlimited Amazon Prime Video, Music, cash backs from Whole Foods and many more.
