For some, it's become a part of their Thanksgiving tradition, and they say the long wait is worth the savings.

Toys "R" Us and many big retailers opened earlier this year.

"It's very exciting. It's a little intimidating," said store manager Carol Ramey. "It's just—you know the Christmas season is here."

With a little patience, many die-hard shoppers will be checking off their Christmas lists and saving money at the same time.

The national retail federation estimates around 150 million people will be taking advantage of Black Friday – or Black Thursday – deals.

If you decided to stay in and sleep off Turkey Day, there will be plenty of chances to find deals online, including on Cyber Monday.
