Already jonesing for some holiday shopping?

You’re in luck! Groupon’s running a Black Friday preview sale, and you can find some of the items on your list for up to 88% off.

Groupon’s goods run the gamut from electronics to housewares to clothing and accessories. Plus, if you purchase your Groupon through SendEarnings, you can earn 5% cash back and rack up even more savings.

But make sure you shop quickly! Many of these Groupon deals only last through October 11.

The Best Deals

There’s something for everyone on your list on Groupon. (Not to mention a little something for yourself!)

Here are the 11 best deals we found on Groupon’s Black Friday portal.

1. 7” 8GB Kids’ Tablet with Screen Protector, Case, Stylus: $49.99 (down from $399.99) — save 88%

Dreaming of a mobile entertainment center for your kids, complete with books, movies and educational games?

Fifty bucks for one of these bright, beautiful tablets is a steal. The device also comes with a case, screen protector, stylus and earbuds.

2. Unlocked, Refurbished iPhone 6 or 6 Plus: from $479.99 (down from $999) — save up to 52%

If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the new iPhone, but want it unlocked — look no further. Save half off the retail price and forgo frustrating carrier contracts with one of these refurbished models.

The price, of course, scales according to which model and how much memory you choose. But even at the highest end, you’ll save at least 35%.

3. Nature’s Sleep Cool IQ 8” Gel Infused Memory Foam Mattress: from $199 (down from $999) — save up to 80%

If you’ve been thinking about stepping up your bedroom game to include a plush memory foam mattress, now’s your chance.

This Nature’s Sleep model includes a layer of Cool IQ Gel over a denser foundational layer of memory foam to provide memory foam’s signature soft support without the “hot sleeping” its users often complain of.

Price will depend on the mattress size, but even a queen is less than $400. I know I paid a lot more for my non-memory-foam model — and that was almost 10 years ago.

4. Luminarc PureBox 10-Piece Glass Food-Storage Set: $29.99 (down from $59.99) — save 62%

You can never have too many food storage containers — from taking meals to work to saving leftovers for tomorrow night, proper food storage ensures your goods stay fresh and tasty.

Plus, since this 10-piece set is made of tempered glass, they won’t stain like some plastic versions. And they’re freezer-safe, so you can use them for freezer cooking, too.

5. Versace Abbigliamento Sportivo Collection Bags: $79.99 (down from $360) — save 78%

Love haute couture, but hate the haute price tags? For a limited time, you can get a genuine Versace bag at knockoff prices.

Hurry, though: A few styles have already sold out!

6. Earth Scaly Eco-Friendly Wood Watches for Men and Women: $49.99 (down from $250) — save 80%

These wood watches are splashproof, sustainable and handsome. Plus, they run on quartz and feature luminous hands, so you know they’re reliable and readable, too.

7. Dyson DC65 Multifloor Vacuum: $199 (down from $499.99) — save 60%

Getting my first apartment was cool and everything, but man — I didn’t realize how expensive vacuums were! I used my hand vac for everything for longer than I’m willing to admit.

Dyson vacuums have a great reputation, and this model is available in lots of pretty colors for 60% off! Although it’s not the sexiest holiday gift in the world, it’s one of the most useful you can give.

8. 24-piece Bedroom Decorating Comforter Set: from $99.99 (down from $350) — save up to 71%

If your bedroom needs a facelift, this set is perfect for you. Not only does it include the comforter and shams you’d expect, it even features matching curtains and tiebacks — so the whole room will be coordinated and cozy.

The king-sized set goes for $119.99, but you still save 66%.

9. MOTA High-Speed 3-Port 5.1-Amp USB Car Charger for Tabets and Smartphones: $6.99 (down from $19.99) — save 65%

Want to keep your gadgets alive on the go? With this car charger, you can charge up to three of your devices at one time — whether iPhone, Android or iPad.

Plus, you can save up to 70% if you go for the two-pack — one for you and one for a stocking stuffer!

10. Alpine Swiss Men’s Leather Wallet or Money Clip: $7.99 (down from $35-$45) — save 77-82%

I don’t know about you, but the men in my life would let their wallets fall apart if I didn’t get them new ones as holiday gifts.

These Alpine Swiss wallets and money clips are sleek and stylish — and crafted from genuine leather. Hurry! One model’s already sold out.

11. Advanced Platinum UltraSonic Electric Toothbrush with UV Santizer: $54.99 (down from $250) — save 78%

Even though my dentist demanded I start using an electric toothbrush, I put off the purchase for a long time — as a student, even the low-end model was prohibitively expensive.

I wish I’d known this high-end version would go on such steep sale! Even if $55 seems high, it’s worthy to invest in your teeth — you only get one set, after all.
