When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday starts every year on the day after Thanksgiving, and this year it’s Friday, November 26. Black Friday has long been considered as the “kickoff” to the holiday shopping season, and retailers used to only offer one-day deals until recent years, when they’ve extended their Black Friday deals through Black Friday weekend, which is on November 26-28, 2021 this year.
Black Friday weekend is known as one of the the busiest shopping days of the year, and new data from Adobe’s 2021 Holiday Shopping Forecast predict online sales over those three days to top $36 billion. Make sure to get your lists ready.
What Are the Best Black Friday Deals 2021?
While Amazon.com is a go-to site for the best deals across tech, beauty, fashion, home and more, so many retailers and online sites are also offering deals. Target, Walmart and Best Buy traditionally hold big Black Friday sales, and a lot of smaller sites are also launching 2021 Black Friday deals.
Now’s the time to shop for expensive things that don’t typically go on sale, such as Black Friday is also your best chance to get savings on items that typically don’t go on sale, such as at-home fitness equipment, digital cameras and drones.
Bed Bath & Beyond, JC Penney and Sam’s Club (which now has a 90-day free trial to let you shop SamsClub.com without a membership) are also offering Black Friday deals. Check out QVC’s Black Friday deals too, which you can shop online at QVC.com.
