When Is Black Friday 2019? Expected Sale Dates For Amazon, Best Buy, Target And Walmart

Black Friday 2019 is running one week later this year. The big day will begin on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving. But, despite this late start, many Black Friday deals will start running in early November (in fact, some great ones are even live now). So here is your definitive guide to Black Friday 2019 sales times for Amazon, Best Buy, Target And Walmart. Be prepared.

Pre-Black Friday Sales Are Starting Now 

As mentioned, the first Black Friday sales have already started and Best Buy currently has some of the best AirPods deals you’ll find this year. I still expect the majority of sales to start on 1 November (Amazon is famed for its month-long Black Friday shopping) but Best Buy has already tempted other major retailers to break ranks early. Walmart, for example, will start some solid deals tomorrow (bookmark my page to know when they go live) and I expect the damn will then burst.

The Real Black Friday Deals Begin Thanksgiving Week

Today In: Innovation

Despite all these pre-sales, most in-store sales are unlikely to start until Thanksgiving Day, though online Black Friday sales will begin as early as Monday, November 25. Here are my predictions for when the most popular retailers will start their sales.

Amazon – I expect Amazon to start its ‘Countdown to Black Friday’ sale on November 1. It will probably begin its ‘Black Friday Week’ event on Friday, November 22. Watch out for juicy Apple deals this year but otherwise, I recommend holding off until Thanksgiving Day or Black Friday for the best doorbusters.

Best Buy – If prior years are any indication, Best Buy will start its in-store sale at 5pm on Thanksgiving Day in 2019. Previously it has closed at around 1 am on Black Friday morning before reopening at 8 am. The pressure is now on to stay open all night, but I suspect Best Buy could use a similar format this year to create some separation between its Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales.

Target – Target’s in-store Black Friday sale will begin on Thanksgiving Day at 6 pm this year. Online deals will be available all day on Thursday and Friday with some deals remaining live over the weekend. Target normally has an early-access event on the day it releases its ad scan, which should be around November 11/12.

Walmart – Sticking to tradition, I understand Walmart will start its in-store Black Friday sale on Thanksgiving Day at 6 pm. Despite pressure to go earlier, Walmart seems to be locked into this timeslot, but it will hold online Black Friday sales throughout Thanksgiving and Black Friday with most deals available across the entire weekend through to Cyber Monday.

Even In The iPhone Age, Funko’s Fast-Moving Toy Business Is Thriving

The first day of New York Comic Con is usually relatively quiet, but today the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is jam-packed, and Brian Mariotti, the CEO of Funko, has to shout. Mariotti is in town to preside over Funko’s 2,500-square-foot booth, a pop-up store selling limited-edition licensed character figures and collectibles. Workers in Funko T-shirts restock shelves while a long line of Funko fans wait behind crowd barriers. On the other side of the ropes, Mariotti shows off the list of items that have already sold out. The creepy twin girls from The Shining went quickest, followed by an orange-chrome-colored Batman and a Notorious B.I.G. with a crown………
