The Ultimate Guide to Black Friday 2021 – CBS Boston

It may not be Thanksgiving yet, but Black Friday 2021 is officially here. Most major retailers from Amazon until walmart until Best Buy to Target have all already started their Black Friday Sale. Great deals are available now and more great deals are added weekly.

If you’re looking to put together your holiday game plan, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s your guide to finding the best Black Friday 2021 deals.

What you need to know about Black Friday 2021

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is one of the biggest shopping events of the year. On Black Friday, almost every major retailer offers big discounts on Christmas gifts, the hottest toy of the year, clothing, kitchen gifts, tech gadgets and more. Don’t expect discounts on hard-to-find items like the Sony PlayStation 5, but you might be able to find a refill PS5 during Black Friday.

Traditionally on Black Friday, some shoppers stay up late into Thanksgiving night or wake up early to queue for early morning stores and doorbuster deals. In the light of COVID-19, many stores closed on Thanksgiving 2020, and instead of directing shoppers to their brick and mortar stores on Black Friday, they sent shoppers to Black Friday Deals on their websites.

Curbside pickup options were popular in 2020 and will likely be just as popular in 2021. Curbside pickup allows you to order an item online from a chain store, drive to a retail location, and store your purchase to your vehicle to be delivered When you arrive.

The Black Friday sale has already started

Even though Black Friday 2021 is November 26, you’re missing out on some great deals if you wait that long to shop. That’s because Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy have all already started their Black Friday sales. Amazon’s Black Friday Sale began in October and will run through Thanksgiving, with a number of short-term and long-term deals.

The next phase of Walmart’s Black Friday 2021 event, called Walmart deals for days, starts on Nov. 22. But there are plenty of deals available now.

Electronics retailer Best Buy has similarly launched early Black Friday deals. The latest range of deals includes a $249 Cricut Maker Slicer (Save $120) which is great for holiday crafting, Jabra Elite 85t noise canceling earbuds for $149 (save $80) and a 70-inch Samsung Smart TV for $600 (Save $150). Best Buy also has daily deals ending today.

Target’s Black Friday Sale, best holiday, also offers new deals every week.

Start shopping early this year for the holidays

Shipping experts recommend you start shopping now for the holidays, even before the Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales start. Although the situation there is improving, the Port of Los Angeles, which handles 40% of the country’s imports, is still running a cargo backlog.

That means you might not be able to find the products you’re looking for so quickly (or cheaply) this holiday season. Sea containers are also: shortages, rising shipping costs. Retailers from Best Buy to Nordstrom expect some port-related delays. COVID-19 has also caused disruptions of global supply chains, and some overseas factories are closed to prevent the spread of the disease.

Are there any pre-Black Friday deals available now?

Fortunately, shopping now doesn’t mean missing out on great deals. Ahead are some pre-Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday deals you can shop now at stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Ulta.

Samsung Chromebook 4: $125


One of the hottest deals at Walmart this Black Friday is still available – you’ll save more than half when you buy this Samsung Chromebook during Walmart’s Deals for Days sale.

You may find better Chromebooks for sale during the holiday season, but you’ll be hard pressed to find another Chromebook under $100.

We’ve seen some great deals on robot vacuums for Black Friday, but this Shark vacuum is the cheapest self-emptying robot vacuum cleaner we’ve found this season.

Fall is the perfect time for a hot cup of coffee — or cup of hot chocolate — so it’s no surprise that Keurig coffee makers are popular around Black Friday. The Neat K-Duo offers the best of both coffee worlds: the convenience of a Keurig based on coffee pods and the versatility of a traditional carafe brewer.
