When is Black Friday 2020? This year, it's not just one day — it's an entire season of savings. Retailers including Best Buy, Walmart and Target are launching their Black Friday deals early so you can start your holiday shopping now. 

Black Friday 2020 will be unlike any that came before it. The pandemic will make the in-store experience very different — none of the typical long lines and big crowds. Many brick-and-mortar stores will be completely closed on Black Friday. That's why retailers are expanding their online Black Friday deals: Amazon rolled its Prime Day sales right into a holiday savings event, while Lowe's and Home Depot also launched early holiday gift guides.

Online shoppers will see price-slashing Black Friday sales on TVs, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and accessories, electronics, home goods, kitchen gadgets, toys and more.

Black Friday is an annual sales event that falls on the day after Thanksgiving and marks the start of the holiday shopping season. This year, Black Friday is November 27, 2020. 

Cyber Monday is November 30, 2020.

In recent years, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have grown to take place over several days and even weeks. And for 2020, Black Friday is encompassing the entire month for many retailers, who are looking to jumpstart the holiday shopping season:
