Attention shoppers: Black Friday sales are already well underway in 2020 at Amazon, Walmart, and other major retailers, regardless of what the calendar says.
Partly due to the coronavirus pandemic, the holiday shopping and deals season has expanded dramatically this year. And the takeaway for bargain hunters is that there's no need to wait for the day after Thanksgiving to find amazing discounts.
The sales marathon basically kicked off on Amazon Prime Day 2020 in mid-October, and shoppers can expect nonstop deals to pop up daily through Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and beyond. Walmart's Black Friday sales officially launched on November 4, with new deals going live (online and in stores) every few days.
While it's not totally clear when you'll find the season's absolute lowest prices — there's always some mystery and unpredictability to the matter — the deals we've been seeing in November so far are extremely competitive. They include the cheapest prices ever on Apple Airpods and amazing deals on smart TVs.
You'll find early Black Friday deals being promoted by almost every major (and minor) retailer, including Walmart, Target, Macy's, Best Buy, Kohl's, and, of course, Amazon. Unsurprisingly, for several weeks, the biggest player in online shopping has been rolling out new "Holiday Deals" sales and promotions daily.
Below is a list we'll be updating routinely on the best Amazon deals available right now. Prices are subject to change, and deals can (and often do) sell out or expire in a day or less. So act quickly if you'd like to take advantage of the discounts.
