According to the official Macy's announcement, you can start snagging deals a week before Thanksgiving.

In a Nov. 12 press release sent to Elite Daily, Macy's revealed a few pieces of news about its Black Friday plans for 2019. First of all, you can actually start taking advantage of Black Friday preview deals on Thursday, Nov. 21, a full week before Thanksgiving.
