UNDATED - With only two weeks left until Black Friday, leaked ads have been hitting the internet at a steady pace.

This week alone we saw ads from Target, JC Penny, Toys R' Us and Best Buy.

Some retailers even continue to push Pre-Black Friday deals to tempt people in the door sooner.

Best Buy is in its second week of "Shop Early-Save Big" and finds itself competing with internet giant Amazon.com, who also launched its "Countdown to Black Friday" event this weekend.

Best Buy is trying to get shoppers in the door with deals like select BlackBerry cell phones for $1 with 2-year activation, and 40" Toshiba LCD HDTV's for $399.99. Shoppers beware, quantities are limited, stores will only carry three Toshiba 40'' televisions per location and the offer is not valid on-line. Same with cell phones. Only two of each Blackberry per store and none are available on-line.

Amazon has wasted no time going right after Best Buy's deals, price matching many offers along with offering free shipping and no sales tax.

Amazon sold out of their 40'' Toshiba LCD HDTV for $399.99 within hours of announcing their deal.

Walmart is also trying to get in on some of the Pre-Black Friday action by offering free shipping on over 60,000 products purchased Nov. 12 and 13.

Needless to say it is a good idea to price compare before making a big purchase this weekend.

The other big Black Friday news is how many retialers are deciding to start holiday sales on Thanksgiving day.

Toys R' Us, Sears, Old Navy, Gap and Michael's all have plans to start sales on Thursday this year.
