When is Black Friday 2020?
With how crazy everything has been in 2020 you may be wondering when Black Friday is taking place this year, especially after Amazon already delayed Prime Day by several months. Black Friday itself is always the Friday after Thanksgiving, making it November 27 this year. Traditionally, retailers would kick off their big sales early on the Friday morning with the discounts, and the hype, running all the way through the weekend.
However, the Black Friday sales are going to look a little different this year with huge amounts of in-store traffic not exactly desirable. A bunch of the biggest retailers in the U.S. are also giving their staff Thanksgiving day off for the first time in recent years suggesting a more low-key take on Black Friday this year, at least in stores.
Due to the current health crisis, we expect to see way more attention shown to online-only deals and since we're breaking out of the usual 'doorbuster' mindset, we're probably going to see many retailers kicking off their Black Friday sales much earlier, too.
Now Prime Day is out of the way, we've now got some official Black Friday plans from retailers which we'll go through below.
Black Friday sales at Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, and more
There's a running theme when it comes to Black Friday plans at all of the major retailers: the deals are starting early!
Amazon's Black Friday sale has already begun in the form of the 'Holiday Dash' promotion. Each day in the run-up to Black Friday itself Amazon will be offering "Black Friday-worthy" deals that last just one day. It also just kicked off a limited-time sale on Amazon devices to celebrate Alexa's birthday. We've already seen deals on tech, fashion, smart home, and much more with some Prime Day prices returning.
This year's Black Friday sale at Best Buy also kicked off early with some standout deals kicking off during Prime Day with the rest of the deals now being revealed in its Black Friday ad. Many deals are available there right now in pre-Black Friday sales with a detailed timeline of events leading up to the big day.
Walmart has also provided a thorough outline of its plans so far with its 'Deal for Days' promotion. Instead of one big Black Friday weekend sale, it is opting to spread out the deals throughout November with three separate events. The first kicks off on November 4 and online shoppers will get first dibs on many, if not all, deals. Walmart has also unveiled its Black Friday ad.
Not to be left behind, Target's Black Friday sale has also been detailed and it too will be launching some early Black Friday sales starting on November 1. Each week, it will be releasing a mini Black Friday ad with limited-time deals to snap up before the big event.
We expect other retailers will probably do something similar to Walmart and space out the deals (and the hype) throughout the next several weeks while prioritizing at-home shoppers.
What deals do we expect during Black Friday 2020?
Now that a few ads from the biggest retailers are out in the open, we know the kinds of products we will see on sale and can start to make some educated guesses as to which products will be the most popular over the coming weeks.
At Amazon and most other retailers, there's a strong emphasis on Amazon device deals with Fire TV sticks, the Echo line, Kindles, Ring gear, and more being discounted back down to Prime Day prices in most cases. We'll also see a huge focus on Black Friday 4K TV deals, home appliances, toys, and more ahead of the holidays. Black Friday tends to bring many of these devices to historic low prices and the best Black Friday deals are generally focused directly around these items.
What are the Black Friday hours in stores?
For most retailers, the emphasis has shifted online this year. In years gone by, retailers closed their stores late on Thanksgiving for a quick turnaround ahead of the opening to huge queues on Black Friday in the early hours of the morning. With a reduced focus on in-store shopping, stores are actually giving their staff members the day off for Thanksgiving and re-opening early on Black Friday.
We know that both Best Buy and Walmart will be opening their doors on November 27 at 5am local time so we expect that will be the standard across other retailers too.
Of course, you can shop online at any time. Since pretty much all of the best Black Friday deals will be available online this year, it's probably going to be safer and more enjoyable to shop from the comfort of your own home this time around.
Are Black Friday deals available online?
Given the current global health crisis, it's very likely that all of the best Black Friday deals will be available online. There are always online-only deals plus many of the same in-store deals being available at the retailer's website, save for a few 'doorbuster' deals.
Retailers are preparing for a very different Black Friday sale this year and those enticing in-store deals are off the cards for 2020. Expect many more online exclusives and incentives to keep shoppers happy at home.
Why should I care about Black Friday?
Whether you are a keen deal hunter or not, you probably prefer not to pay full price for the things you buy. Black Friday is the one time a year where all of the major retailers run sales simultaneously, try to outdo each other, and offer you some of the best deals around making it the very best time to buy anything you've been holding out on.
Now that Black Friday is going to be moved online, for the most part, it also means that you can score some excellent deals from the comfort of your own home. No more fighting through crowds to snag the last item on the shelf. Whether you're looking to save on a big purchase for yourself, hunting down holiday gifts for your family, or just perusing the promotions to see if something catches the eye, Black Friday is your last chance to save big in 2020.
