It varies by store. Many of the stores open BF but not thanksgiving, went online as early as Wed night.

Welcome to the boards.
Times have varied between the stores in the past, anything now, would just be a guess.

It used to be that the sales started at around 3 am Thanksgiving morning, but it seems like they have been creeping later and later. Last year a couple started at 5 am. I usually shop Target and Best Buy online Thanksgiving morning and still hit the stores for what's not available online.

One thing to keep in mind, if you shop online, you're not guaranteed to get the item. You may shop online, get confirmation, etc. Then a week after BF, you get the email stating they oversold and your money is refunded. Some stores have gotten better about this, while others haven't. If it's an item you must have, you need to stand in line at the store to get it. That guarantees it's yours.

Good point. I've never had it happen to me, but I have heard stories of it happening.

Last year, K-Mart, The Samsung galaxy tab 2, conformation and everything, until I went to the store, two days later, I bought one at Office Depot for the same price.
The year before, Sears Sharpe TV, I order as soon as the site opened up, a couple days later, I got the sorry Charlie notification, on the plus side, Last Nov, I bought the Sharp 60" LCD from Sears, It was a hot deal on BFAds, $699

I shopped some online last year on black friday. Was able to get a few things. But others were saying they were able to shop online Wednesday at midnight for a couple hours.

Last year Sams advertised they would go live @ 10pm Wed night. BB went live about 2 central thanksgiving morning. We had shipping notices on everything we ordered long before we went out shopping.
