Here's a look at the top 10 retailers for Black Friday discounts --and what products are your best bets for true savings.
Early indications are that there will be more people out shopping on Black Friday than ever before - and maybe you're one of them --but how do you know where to go to get the best discounts?

JC Penney has the highest overall discount rate of 65%, while Costco has the lowest at 21%.
Here's the top 10 Black Friday retailers based on the percentage of discount offered.
- JCPenney -- 65%
- Macy's -- 54%
- Rite Aid -- 53%
- Meijer -- 51%
- Sears -- 50%
- Walgreen's -- 49%
- Office Depot/Office Max -- 44%
- Ace Hardware -- 41%
- Kohl's -- 40%
- Staples -- 39%
Wallethub says the biggest Black Friday discounts will be on jewelery - 58% - with discounts on computers and electronics generally will only be about 30%.
The highest concentration of discounts will be on toys and apparel. Overall, the average Black Friday discount is around 39%, so that should be your target savings. Much less than that and you're probably not getting much of a deal.
