The Best Black Friday Stores

Walmart Black Friday Guide

Walmart has officially released ads for its three Black Friday events in 2020. The final sale begins online at 7 pm ET on November 25, and also becomes available in-store on November 27. We know Walmart stores will open at 5 am local time for Black Friday, but you'll find some of the best deals online, like a Vizio 70" TV for $478.

Walmart Cyber Monday
Shop toys, home goods, TVs, and electronic deals during Walmart's Cyber Week sale. Cyber deals should kick off at 12:01 am ET on Cyber Monday itself. However, there's a chance we'll see some Black Friday offers still hanging on the day before.

Best Buy Black Friday Guide

Best Buy dropped its Black Friday ad in late October, and released details about how and when to shop its Black Friday deals. We know the retailer will be closed on Thanksgiving in 2020. Doors will open on Black Friday at 5 am local time, and will stay open till 10 pm local time that night. Almost all of the Black Friday offers will be available by November 22, though.

Best Buy Cyber Monday
Best Buy should kick off its Cyber Monday sale on November 30 this year, with deals lasting until the end of the night, at least. Know that some cyber deals will appear on November 28, too. Also keep in mind that select offers will likely continue through the rest of Cyber Week. If last year's deals return, you can expect a range of savings on different categories, including up to $300 off MacBooks, up to $500 off current iPhones, and up to 50% off select small kitchen appliances.

Amazon Black Friday Guide

Amazon has now released details about its 2020 Black Friday sale! Amazon's Black Friday Deals Week is kicking off on November 20 this year. It will run through the holiday itself and include longer-lived deals, as well as those that last a limited amount of time.

Amazon Cyber Monday
Amazon's Cyber Monday 2020 sale should begin the day after Black Friday. It'll likely continue through the holiday itself, and Cyber Week deals will pick up right after that. Be prepared to shop a variety of discounted items, including clothing, electronics, housewares, toys, and games.

Target cart

Target Black Friday Guide

Target has tackled Black Friday 2020 in a unique way, releasing previews for the upcoming week's Black Friday Now deals every Thursday. The store has also adjusted its price matching policy to apply to any Black Friday deals purchased from Target, provided they drop in price at Target or on Target's website before December 25. As for shopping in-store, Target doors will open at 7 am local time on Black Friday, but be closed on Thanksgiving.

Target Cyber Monday
The bull's-eye retailer should kick off its Cyber Monday event on November 29 this year, and feature more deals the next day. Most will probably end at 11:59 pm on Cyber Monday itself, but some could continue through the week. Plan ahead to shop deals on toys, bedding, bath items, video games, and tons more.

eBay Black Friday Guide

We haven't seen eBay's Black Friday 2020 ad yet, and we're expecting it to drop kind of late — around November 23, in fact. eBay's official Black Friday deals will likely start the day before Thanksgiving. Be prepared for the site to experience hiccups, though. You may need to try to snag a deal more than once, if you aren't able to grab it right away.

eBay Cyber Monday
The Cyber Monday sale at eBay should swing into action on November 28 this year, which is the day after Black Friday. Even better, the sale should last past Cyber Week itself, till December 9, 2020. As usual, you can expect eBay to have a little bit of everything on sale during its cyber event, including electronics, tools, luggage, apparel, accessories, and housewares.
