If you're looking for deals on major appliances this fall, don't bother to wait until Black Friday: retailers started offering huge discounts this month, with 30% off, or more.

According to Chuck Ewing, CEO of the Appliance Factory Outlet, major appliance manufacturers offered retailers what they termed "Black Friday prices" back in July. It was an effort to get rid of inventory and spur sales in November. At his 10 store chain, appliances from Frigidaire, GE, LG and Whirlpool are being promoted as kind of a Black Friday every day in November sale.
