Black Friday 2020 ad scans: See the best deals and sales at Walmart, Best Buy, HP, Newegg, GameStop and more – CNET

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET's gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Back in the old days -- you know, four or five years ago -- you knew that Black Friday was arriving when you started seeing Black Friday ad leaks. These were scanned PDFs or JPEGs, often grainy, of the ads from major retailers detailing their Black Friday deals. Intended for the Sunday newspaper just before Thanksgiving week, these would often tip the biggest "doorbuster" sales of the season, with everything from $99 TVs to $199 gaming console bundles. 

Cut to 2020, and the landscape looks a bit different. Retailers now "leak" the circulars on their own schedules and on their own websites, to help beat the hype drums for their holiday sales. And since we want you to get the best deals of the season, we're collecting the PDFs, and links to as many of those sales as possible, right here. We're including links to the respective online stores, as well as CNET stories where we've highlighted our favorite deals. 


Walmart is running a series of three two-part sales between now and Thanksgiving.

  • Event 1 started online at on Nov. 4. 
  • More deals became available on Nov. 7. Walmart is also holding its annual tire event in stores and online from Nov. 7-13. 
  • Event 2 started online on Nov. 11 and offers deals on electronics like TVs, computers and tablets. Additional deals became available online on Nov. 14. 
  • Event 3 will start online on Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. ET, with additional deals being offered online on Nov. 27 (actual Black Friday) at 12 a.m. ET and in stores at 5 a.m. local time. 

Walmart has posted interactive ad scans of its sales at its website.

GameStop has revealed its full Black Friday deal slate. Many of the deals seem focused on in-store doorbusters, and it's unclear how the gaming retailer will integrate online sales into its plans. That said, the Switch deal -- the console with Mario Kart and a three-month Nintendo Online membership thrown in for no extra charge -- seems to be available at other retailers, too.
