With spending for the holiday season expected to increase by 3.6 percent this year to $656 billion, according to WalletHub, you can bet a hefty chuck of that change is going toward gaming. With the debut of the Xbox One S, Microsoft is hoping to see aggressive sales of its smaller, faster console. And a lot of those purchases will take place on that magical day where people forget the fear of being trampled to death: Black Friday.

Thankfully, Xbox One and Black Friday go together like turkey and stuffing. We perused the circulars to find all the Xbox-y sales we could find arriving on Nov. 24 or a little earlier. You'll find a lot of bundled consoles and hot games (in particular Minecraft and Battlefield 1 with a console that comes in military green).

Generally, the Black Friday prices are the same wherever you go so don't panic if one outlet runs dry—you can probably get the same price elsewhere.

(Don't worry, PlayStation fans. We didn't forget about you.)

You might not think of Kohl's as a place for electronics, but it has a doorbuster sale (in stores and online) starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day that will serve up the Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft Console Bundle for $249.99. The purchase also earns the buyer an extra $75 in Kohl's Cash.

In the store, Black Friday technically starts at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day. Online, you get free shipping only if you order over $50 of merchandise at Walmart.com. Better yet, do in-store pickup.

Amazon starts Black Friday early by having ridiculous deals all the time, and is planning to run a lot of them through Dec. 22—at least when it's not rotating savings to new products without warning.
