When is Black Friday 2020?

Black Friday 2020 starts on Friday 27 November. Well, that’s the official start date anyway, but as we have seen from previous years, and as we are seeing from all these early Black Friday keyboard piano deals, the sale has unofficially started and will continue through to the end of November. 

While we’re getting some good early deals through already, we fully expect these to increase the closer we get to the start of Black Friday 2020. We also reckon the deals will get juicier, with the real big guns reserved for Black Friday itself and into the following week. That doesn’t mean we won’t have some humdingers before then, however - we’ve seen in past years that some retailers simply can’t help themselves and fire off all manner of killer deals over a series of weeks. 

Black Friday, of course, is the day after Thanksgiving in the States, and is the day when tens of thousands of retailers, both online and bricks and mortar stores, kick-start their holiday shopping sales. That includes all these cheap Black Friday piano deals we’re keeping an eye on for you.
