One of the most incredible aspects of Black Friday is the sheer scope of retail sales. Every store in every chain in every category of retailer has some sort of Black Friday sale, giving customers access to tens of thousands of dollars in savings on thousands of items across the nation.

The hard part about having so many choices is the overwhelming task of cutting through the hype and marketing spin and digging down to find the absolute best deals on Thanksgiving. As daunting as it may seem, the Black Friday pros at are always up to the task. We've been at it around the clock, analyzing every ad, researching every deal, and compiling our list of the very best Black Friday has to offer. And so, without further gilding the lily, and with no more ado, we present to you our top 10 picks for the best Black Friday deals of 2016.

10. Element or Hisense 40" 1080p HDTV (ELEFW408/40H3B) - $125.00 at Walmart

The bargain basement HDTV is one of the longest running Black Friday staples. Many shoppers look forward to Black Friday simply because they know they can get a rock bottom price on a sizable HDTV. Year in and year out, Walmart is often the place to be if you want the absolute lowest price on electronics, and this year Walmart is at it again with their no frills 40" 1080p HDTV deal. Depending on your store, you'll find either an Element or a Hisense brand HDTV with 3 HDMI ports for only $125.

9. Kohl's Cash Deals

Kohl's is back for the second year in a row to pick up the balls that other retailers have dropped. Shoppers who were disappointed to find that items on their shopping list were not discounted on Black Friday can make a Christmas miracle happen at Kohl's with their $15 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent promotion. This deal is active from November 21st thru November 26 and Kohl's cash must be redeemed from November 27th thru December 5th. These rules may be somewhat stringent, but with the wide and all-encompassing nature of this once a year Kohl's promotion, a spot on our top 10 for the second year running is definitely merited.

8. Apple Deals – Target

No, your eyes have not glazed over from a tryptophan overdose -- Apple products have finally made our top 10. The fact that in just a few short years we have gone from never having Apple deals to having a wide variety of great discounts on an assortment of Apple products at Target is proof positive that Black Friday is the best time of year to shop for just about anything (except for Apple Watch Series 2). For starters, Target has slashed prices across the board on iPads, including a $150.99 discount on the 9.7" iPad Pro (starting at $449.99), $125.99 discount on the iPad Air 2 (starting at $274.00), and $70.20 discount on the iPad Mini 2 (starting at $199.79).

The Apple Series 2 Watch did wind up on our Worst Deals of 2016 list, but the Series 1 watch has received a substantial discount at Target, with a $71.99 discount. Finally, all Apple iPod models and storage capacities receive a 20% discount across the board.

That only leaves the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Unfortunately, there's no cash discount here, but if you purchase and activate a new iPhone 7/7 Plus at Target this Black Friday, you can take advantage of their $0 down promotion while receiving a whopping $250 Target gift card. Not bad!

7. HP 17.3" Core i5 Laptop (17-X121DX) - $369.99 at Best Buy

This year, one of their most popular models, the Dyson V6 Animal cordless bagless vacuum is receiving a $200 discount from a number of retailers including Target, Best Buy, Lowes, and Bed Bath and Beyond.
