Black Friday deals: Where to find the best holiday sales

Black Friday started early, but it's still going strong

Black Friday 2020 is going to look different. It took a global pandemic for retailers to give their employees Thanksgiving off, but most of the sales traditionally associated with the day after Thanksgiving have either been pushed online, or earlier, or both because of COVID-19.

Don't expect to see the crowds you're used to in stores around Black Friday. In fact, don't expect to see all of these deals in one week, either. In order to temper crowds in stores and malls per social distancing protocols, many retailers have opted to begin Black Friday sales weeks in advance. Some deals will last all of November, and no, they aren't a waste of your time. These deals are actually going to be good.
