Black Friday might lack some of the excitement and dramatic savings of past years, but Walmart, Target, and Amazon -- the three heavyweights in the retail space -- will still make it worth consumers’ while to shop.
At Walmart, the Black Friday online deals start tonight at 7 p.m. ET and continue at midnight ET on Friday, with stores opening up at 5 a.m. local time. Walmart’s ad circular highlights the following deals:
Fitbit Inspire 2 -- $69.
70-inch Vizio 4K TV -- $478.
Nintendo Switch Bundle -- $299.
AirPods Pro -- $169.
Apple Watch Series 3 -- $119
Thanksgiving will be a big online shopping day
Target’s latest Black Friday ad offers discounts on smart products for the home, toys, electronics, games, toys, and apparel. Some of the deals went live at Target.com on Sunday, but the bulk will be available on Thanksgiving day.
Target stores are closed on Thanksgiving but will open as usual on Black Friday. Here are some of the deals listed in Target’s circular:
$70 off Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1-inch
$70 off Fire HD 10 Tablet
50 percent off most board and card games
$400 Target gift card with purchase of Samsung Note20 5G, Galaxy s20+5G, or Note10+
New deals each day
Amazon, which offered a sneak peek at its Cyber Monday deals earlier this week, has been putting up new deals each day since Friday and will continue the offerings through Black Friday itself.
Its deals cover a wide range of categories, from health and beauty products to smart devices for the home. Deals include:
$149.99 for the Ring Video Doorbell 3 and an Echo Show 5
$129.99 for the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition tablet, a $70 savings
Up to 30 percent off on select Adidas activewear, backpacks, and more

Despite the expected high volume of shipping resulting from this year’s massive shift to online shopping, Amazon says Prime members in the U.S. can shop a selection of over 10 million items eligible for Prime Free One-Day Delivery with no minimum purchase, and millions of items available for Same-Day Delivery in 47 major metropolitan areas.
