2020 has been a year of big changes, so it’s no surprise Black Friday was also impacted. Black Friday used to be one day of epic in-person sales, with slashed prices on big ticket holiday gift items like flat-screen TVs, the latest game consoles, and trendy kitchen appliances. Remember news footage of winding lines at 4 a.m. and mad dashes to get the deals as soon as the door opened? Say goodbye to all of that (at least for this year). Here are five things you won’t see on Black Friday in 2020.
This year, Black Friday has basically turned into Cyber Deals November, as many big retailers move their deals online for the days, and even weeks, leading up to Black Friday (that’s the day after Thanksgiving, in case you didn’t know). There are tons of Black Friday deals to be had this year, but it’s a lot to figure out.
We did the reporting to bring you the best Black Friday deals from Walmart, Target, Amazon, Macy’s, The Home Depot, and Kohl’s this year. Check it out, take notes, and save big on holiday shopping. If you’re curious, here’s the history of Black Friday.
