  • The early Black Friday 2020 sale is in full swing, with several retailers already hosting deals online.
  • Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target are already running pre-Black Friday sales promos that are available online and in stores, with more early Black Friday events to follow in the coming weeks.
  • Smaller retailers have either published their Black Friday discounts online, or the ad scans leaked ahead of time.

Black Friday shoppers have been ordering their favorite deals online for years, as most retailers adapted their holiday shopping experience to support and encourage online shopping. Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and other retailers have increased the number of Black Friday online events in the past few years, looking to match Amazon’s reach. 2020 is no different in that regard, and some early Black Friday sales have already started. What’s different about this year is the novel coronavirus pandemic. That’s the biggest incentive to buy even more Black Friday and holiday deals online this year, rather than venturing out to stores on the actual Black Friday. All retailers will ship the goods to your home, many offering free shipping during the holiday shopping period. And many of them will also support other delivery methods, like curbside pickup, if you want to pick up orders yourself. As in previous years, some of the most important Black Friday ads were already released, while other ad scans leaked online.


Amazon has never operated its own retail stores, and most people are already familiar with the way Amazon shopping works around Black Friday. This year’s selection of early Black Friday deals is available on the Holiday Dash portal, and you might want to go for an Amazon Prime trial to match your holiday shopping sprees if you haven’t subscribed already.

Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target might be the biggest retailers out there, but other companies have already announced their own Black Friday sales or had their ads leaked.
