Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year for both companies and consumers. Although it's certainly going to look different in 2020 due to the pandemic (no large crowds or long lines), the event will still boast deep discounts. Many businesses are choosing to roll out their sales early and offer online deals to avoid groups of people in physical stores. That includes Target, which started its 2020 Black Friday sales way earlier than in the past. In fact, the retailer has been offering Black Friday deals throughout the entire month of November, but the main event starts next week. It's time to plan your must-buy list now for a successful shopping spree, whether in-store or online. Here's everything you need to know about 2020 Target Black Friday deals.

What to Expect from Target Black Friday 2020

Target's holiday shopping season features hundreds of thousands of deals on electronics, home, toys, beauty, and more. The final Black Friday deals go live Sunday, November 22, and lasts until the day after Black Friday, Saturday, November 28. A news release from the company notes that the "best" deals will be available on the retailer's loyalty program app, Target Circle, which you can sign up for for free if you haven't already. All of the deals are available online, and you can also purchase the majority of them via same-day delivery or contactless drive-up services.

There will be almost 1 million more on-sale items than there were in 2019, and they'll last through December. Plus, the company has extended its price match guarantee through December 24, so you can ask for a price adjustment on any Black Friday item if the price drops again later. The deals will be available both in-store and online, so you can stay home and add things safely to your cart while enjoying your delicious Thanksgiving leftovers. Here are some of the best Target Black Friday deals you can expect to see in stores and online starting Sunday, November 22.
