If you’ve started browsing the Black Friday ads yet (here’s our list of the best deals on electronics and more) you may have noticed something odd. A lot of the deals look a little, well, familiar.

As it turns out, many of the deals ARE familiar; recycled in fact.

WalletHub has published its “2016 Black Friday Freshness Report” and finds 11 percent of all deals are recycled this year.
