Get a jump-start on Black Friday savings with knock-out, door-buster sales on hundreds of items from jewelry and electronics to a limited-edition fragrance gift set from Justin Bieber featuring his holiday CD and an exclusive bonus track.

With the best value all day at more than 800 convenient locations nationwide and around the clock on macys.com via the web or your mobile device, shoppers will find great deals for everyone on their list.

Macy's offers an early sneak peek at some of the Black Friday specials that will dazzle and delight this year, all at an affordable price.
Justin Bieber's limited-edition fragrance set will be available exclusively at Macy's beginning Nov. 25 at midnight, while supplies last.
