If Black Friday is a success every year in terms of online sales, we expect 2020 to be a record.

With the coronavirus crisis and the concern of many French people about shopping in physical stores, it is easy to think that e-commerce platforms will come out on top.

Especially since the giants of the sector are already promising exceptional promotions from Friday, November 27, 2020.

What is Black Friday?

To understand what Black Friday really is, it is necessary to go back to the 1950s in the United States.

The Friday following Thanksgiving on the other side of the Atlantic, many Americans then take advantage of their long weekend off to start their Christmas shopping or simply rest in the countryside.


An incredible world in the shops and unprecedented traffic jams on the roads.

The term “black Friday” then appeared.

It was in the 1970s that major American industrialists and traders decided to reuse this expression to organize a commercial event.

Black Friday then takes the form of sales, good deals and promotions and truly launches the Christmas shopping period.

It was then necessary to wait until the 2010s for the event to be imported into Europe, under the impetus of the online commerce giant, Amazon.

Since then, many other players in the sector have joined the movement and are also offering significant discounts during this period.

These are, for example, Cdiscount, Fnac, Rue du Commerce, Boulanger, La Redoute, ManoMano or even Darty.

Good deals not to be missed during Black Friday

Although Black Friday officially begins on Friday, November 27, 2020, everything suggests that promotions and discounts will start at the start of the week (i.e. Monday, November 23).

Only the most interesting deals and flash sales will be focused on this day.

For the occasion, it is certain that technological products will be concerned (smartphone, tablet, computer, wireless headphones and earphones, etc.).

These are the most anticipated each year.

Game consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One are also given as favorites.

But other sectors should also benefit from the many reductions in this large-scale commercial operation.

For example, clothes at discounted prices could create a surprise and be among the best sellers with significant discounts.

What you can expect from the 2020 edition of Black Friday

Since the first French edition of Black Friday in 2014, the event has become essential.

So much so that even the biggest brands are now willing to offer significant discounts and lots of good deals.

And with the coronavirus crisis that has just shaken the world and household consumption, all traders stand ready to boost their sales with this commercial event.

So you can expect to find great offers on many products, including some new releases from iconic brands like Apple, Microsoft or Samsung.

And the reductions could be exceptional this year.

We expect to see up to 80% discount on certain products such as clothing or certain technological devices.

While the most recent versions have just been released, it wouldn't be surprising if these consoles are offered at a knockdown price: a good plan not to be missed.

At Amazon, you can also hope to equip the house at a low price.

Furniture, appliances and connected speakers are the most anticipated of this year with discounts of up to -80%.

Need to equip yourself or want to renew your devices?

Better to wait until November 27 and Black Friday to take advantage of good deals.

You could then save several hundred euros.
