The Top 30 Black Friday Deals of 2020
When we choose our top Black Friday deals, it’s not just about the discount. We’re thinking about who’s on your holiday shopping list, and what you’ve got your eye on for yourself. This year, our picks for the best online Black Friday deals of 2020 include holiday decor, apparel, toys, and more to help keep your holiday safe and cozy at home.
Before we dive in, we have some Black Friday shopping tips for you.
Know what you’re going to buy, as well as when and where to buy it.
Don’t just make a list – make a schedule. Use our collection of Black Friday circulars to research, and read the fine print on every item that catches your eye. Is it already available in an early Black Friday sale, is it available online or in-store only? Is it only on sale for a specific day?
Shop Black Friday Now.
There have been some big changes made to Black Friday this year. Due to the pandemic, many stores have opted to have extended sales through the month of November and some even into December. Many sales are live now and this list may be updated to reflect that. Walmart’s sales change every couple of weeks, with new items added and some sales ending. Target adds new deals every Sunday through November.
Stay on mission, stay on budget.
If you go in without a plan, you’re going to spend more than you need to, or you’re going to hesitate and miss an opportunity, or both.
Download the Brad’s Deals app.
Our team will be posting the best Black Friday deals all day every day from now through the holidays and beyond, including deals from retailers who don’t publish circulars, who you’d never thought to check. The Brad’s Deals app is available for both iOS and Android.
Set up deal alerts on the items you’re looking for.
If you’re waiting for the perfect deal on something specific, our Deal Alerts feature is for you. Just create an alert for your item (eg. “cashmere sweater” or “North Face”) and we’ll send you a note when we post a deal that matches your alert.
Use a credit card for major purchases to lock in extra benefits.
Big ticket items like televisions, major appliances, and anything that comes with a warranty should be paid for with a credit card, even if you have the cash ready to go. The reason for this is that credit cards often provide extra benefits like extended warranty protection which cash does not. To make this work even more to your advantage, use a cash back credit card or your favorite rewards credit card. Brad’s Deals finance editor Mark Jackson has additional thoughts about the best credit cards for Black Friday shopping. No matter what card you prefer, use your cash savings to pay off the card right away and avoid interest charges.
Is your favorite Black Friday deal sold out?
Set up a Deal Alert now and we’ll let you know right away when we find a great deal on whatever you’re looking for.
Why isn’t Amazon on the list?
Amazon just ran a huge sitewide sale for Amazon Prime Day and while we think they’ll still offer Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, we don’t know how strong the sales will be. They rarely give us specifics on anything that isn’t an Alexa, Kindle, Fire TV, or Amazon Basic product and their prices change quickly during high-selling times. So without a true Black Friday ad from them, we can’t make any quality predictions about their sale.
That said, our list below covers popular items and categories, including some big ticket doorbusters, and Amazon has a history of aggressively price matching those deals for their Black Friday sale. Our advice is that if you’d rather buy something at Amazon, check the price there and we won’t be at all surprised if you find that it’s the same as at Walmart, Target, or Best Buy.

11′ – 12′ Inflatable Outdoor Christmas Décor at Home Depot
Regular Price: $179
Black Friday Price: $69
We predict that outdoor holiday décor will be very popular this year. One socially-distanced way to celebrate the holiday will be to drive around looking at Christmas lights and décor in your neighborhood. These 12′ inflatables are the lowest price we’ve seen for this size. We normally see 8′ for around $45 and have not seen 12′ for under $90 in the past. Find this deal on page 1 of the Home Depot ad and shop these prices now!
Regular Price: $349.99
Black Friday Price: $149.99
The lowest price we’ve seen for this Insignia 50″ 4K UHD Fire TV (NS-50DF710NA21) has been $250. Our electronics deal editor David notes that Insignia is a store brand but is a brand we trust and recommend. They are made by LG, but use the most basic LG panels and parts. Find this deal on page 1 of the Best Buy ad and shop this sale beginning 11/26.
PowerXL Smokeless Indoor Grill at Kohl’s
Regular Price: $139.99
Black Friday Price: $59.49 + $15 Kohl’s Cash
Indoor grills are going to be hot this year. A great way to enjoy grilling all year round from the safety of inside your home, these are especially great for those living in small apartments with limited or no outdoor space. We did see this PowerXL model for $56 earlier this season, but the $59 price with Kohl’s Cash is a very close second to that deal. Find it on page 41 of the Kohl’s Black Friday ad and shop online and in-store 11/22.
7.5′ Pre-Lit Christmas Tree at Home Depot
Regular Price: $199
Black Friday Price: $79
Christmas trees are a big seller this year and Home Depot is not disappointing when it comes to deals. This 7.5′ pre-lit tree for $79 switches from clear to colorful lights and is our favorite Christmas tree deal this year. Find it on page 1 of the Home Depot Black Friday ad and shop this sale now through December! This one is currently unavailable online, but available in select stores.
Giftable Mugs & Drinkware at Belk
Regular Price: $20-$24
Black Friday Price: $7-$8.40
Our deal editor Julie loves this deal. She purchased these as gifts previously and said they are great for the price. The $7 lidded mugs come in giftable boxes making for cute and convenient gifts for your friends and family. Note that the wine glasses come in a set of 2. Find this deal on page 25 of the Belk Black Friday ad and you can start shopping online and in-store on 11/20.
As we predicted, Christmas decor is a big seller this year. With most people staying home for the holidays, decorating big (and early!) is something many families are doing. Kohl’s is taking 50% off, and an additional 15% off with coupon, some of their popular Christmas decorations. Find this deal on page 12 of the ad and start shopping 11/22.

Shark Navigator Light Vacuum at Macy’s
Regular price: $149.99
Black Friday Price: $79.99
The Shark Navigator Upright (NV105) vacuum will be $79.99 in the sale. We see this model on Amazon and Walmart normally for $150 and $80 matches the lowest price we’ve seen for this upright (posted from Macy’s in July of 2019). Find it on page 4 of the Macy’s ad and start shopping select deals online 11/16 with more available as we get closer to Black Friday.
Gorilla Step Ladder at Home Depot
Regular Price: $29.98
Black Friday Price: $9.88
A pick from our managing editor Casey, this same ladder was $20 in the Home Depot Black Friday sale last year. We haven’t seen it this low in several years, and you can bet Casey snagged one when it was this low last time! Find it on page 2 of the Home Depot Black Friday ad. Quantities are limited, but this price will last through December.
Regular Price: $179
Black Friday Price: $119
While this is an older model of the Apple Watch, we’ve never seen it below $189. If you or someone on your gift list is looking for an Apple Watch and you’re on a budget, this is a great way to get one. Shop this deal starting 11/25 at 7 pm on Walmart’s website.
Fragrance Samplers for Men and Women at Macy’s
Regular Price: $35
Black Friday Price: $15
A huge hit and a great gift idea every year, these fragrance samplers for men and women are one of our favorite Macy’s deals. Fragrances offered may vary. Find it on page 26 of the Macy’s Black Friday ad, with select sales starting 11/16 online and in-stores.
Regular Price: $36
Black Friday Price $17
At $17, this is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for a weighted blanket. We did see a $16 option at Kohl’s earlier in November, but with Walmart’s shipping policy, this could end up being a great Black Friday buy. Shop at Walmart.com on 11/25 at 7 pm.
