If you think it’s a little early to be talking about the best Black Friday USA deals 2020 then think again. The dust might only just be settling on Prime Day, yet already some of the biggest stores in the USA have Black Friday 2020 firmly in their sights, well ahead of the official November 27 launch.

Among those making an early play for the best Black Friday USA deals 2020 are Best Buy and Walmart. Indeed, some Best Buy Black Friday 2020 deals are available right now, with the store revealing its hand last week, to try and steal the limelight from Amazon. As a result, eager shoppers can already snap up some hot Black Friday deals on some of the best tvs and headphones around. 

At the same time, Walmart announced details of its ‘Black Friday Deals for Days' event, which will officially begin on November 4. Laptops, toys and vacuums are among a host of products that it has already been confirmed will be discounted online from this date, before more Black Friday deals become available online and in store from November 7. Some of the best tire brands are set to be heavily discounted by Walmart too. 

With Prime Day so late this year, retailers everywhere know they have to offer the very best Black Friday USA deals that they can to capture the attention of shoppers who might already have spent a good chunk of their holiday season budget. However, there is little doubt that Black Friday 2020 will deliver all the deals that you’d normally expect and more - and that applies to the smaller stores and online shops too, many of whom have had a tough 2020 to contend with so far.   

Regardless of what’s on your shopping list - or what might catch your eye in the coming weeks - the best Black Friday deals never fail to excite, whether you’re shopping from the USA or elsewhere. It’s THE shopping event of any year, and every store will want to be involved in some way in 2020. From fashion through to fridges, homeware through to hot tubs, and much more in between, the best Black Friday USA deals are coming, and in some instances are available right now! 

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday traditionally signifies the start of the holiday shopping season in the US, with almost all retailers - both in the malls and online - slashing prices in the hope of persuading shoppers to buy holiday presents early. Almost everything is up for grabs, with the best Black Friday deals taking in electronics, clothes, toys, home furnishings, cookware, and much more. 

The best Black Friday deals can see 50%, 60%, or even 70% discounted off the hottest items. Last year, Black Friday shoppers spent $7.4 billion online alone, making it the second largest internet shopping day ever, while billions of dollars more would have been splurged in stores across the US. However, Black Friday deals do not stand alone, with Cyber Monday now offering just as many buying opportunities - indeed, it is the $7.9 billion spent online across Cyber Monday 2018 that is the best-selling day ever in terms of online revenue. In some instances, the Cyber Monday deals can be even better than Black Friday, particularly if retailers are keen to shift on any remaining stock.

When is Black Friday 2020?

The Black Friday 2020 date is Friday, November 27, falling - as it always does - on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Seeing as the date of Thanksgiving changes every year (it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November), so the date of Black Friday changes accordingly too. Importantly, Black Friday now tends to span more than a single day, with retailers taking the opportunity to launch Black Friday deals in the days, and sometimes weeks, leading up to the actual day. 

When is Cyber Monday 2020?

The Cyber Monday date for 2020 is Monday, November 30. This is because Cyber Monday falls on the first Monday after Thanksgiving. As a result, it also changes each year in line with the dates of Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Traditionally, Cyber Monday has always been for tech items and electronics, like the best laptops, but we're starting to see most retailers simply using it as an extension of their Black Friday deals, so you'll be able to get discounts on almost anything on Cyber Monday too.

The best pre-Black Friday 2020 deals

If you like to get a head-start on your holiday shopping, there is, of course, nothing forcing you to wait for Black Friday to get spending. With Amazon Prime Day 2020 now gone, it's a clear run to Black Friday, and as we've already said, Best Buy is stealing a march on its rivals by making deals available right now. Elsewhere too, the wonderful world of online shopping means there's always a sale on somewhere, so why not check out some of the best deals around right now.

How to get the best deals on Black Friday 2020

While the best Black Friday deals are likely to be enticing enough, it’s still also worth taking the time to make sure you are getting the very best price going. Here are a few tips to help you secure the best Black Friday 2020 prices. 

Check different retailers
If you’re targeting one item in particular, then remember to look for it across as many of the different websites that you’d expect to find it. This is because not all retailers will discount to the same degree or be beginning from the same starting price - as with everyday, out of sale shopping, this can lead to differences between the prices of the same item at various sites, so is always worth checking. 

Look at CamelCamelCamel
A highly useful tool for Black Friday and Prime Day, CamelCamelCamel tracks the prices of items sold on Amazon. So if you're looking to buy from Amazon, you simply input the name of the product you’re looking at (or copy and paste the URL), and you’ll be able to see how the price on offer compares with what it has been before. While it's likely that Black Friday will prove the lowest price it has ever been, it doesn’t hurt to check!

Start your research now
It's never too early to compile a shopping list of the items you’re thinking of buying across the holiday season. If you have the time, check to see what price things are selling for now, so when Black Friday comes, you’ll have a better idea of whether you’re getting a really good deal or not. What you want may already be in a sale now, in which case you might have the chance to snap up a bargain before the hordes descend on malls and online on Black Friday itself.
