With five weeks until the big day (or rather, long weekend), we can expect many Black Friday deal teasers from Amazon and other retailers in the coming days and weeks. 

While Amazon's first heads-up (of many, no doubt) doesn't reveal much in the way of tech savings, we'd keep an eye on the Amazon Black Friday page for its daily drop of deals. Consumer electronics naturally feature prominently in the Black Friday sales, so you can always expect big savings on 4K OLED TVs, wireless headphones, Bluetooth speakers, record players and more.
