The busiest shopping day of the year has been waning for a while, but did the COVID-19 pandemic finally bring it to an end?
Bed Bath & Beyond says Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be a five-day event, giving shoppers more time to snag deals in store and online during a holiday season likely to be different from any other in recent memory.
The Black Friday sale will kick off online Thanksgiving Day and go through Saturday, Nov. 28. Shoppers will get 20% off their total purchases.
Those wanting to shop in store or pick up their online purchases in person get a 25% discount on their entire cart starting Friday, Nov. 27, through Saturday, Nov. 28, and they won’t need a coupon.
There will be some doorbusters on appliances, linen and holiday decor that will be available only in store. Deals include a Wi-Fi-enabled Shark ION Robot Vacuum R77 for $168.74 – a $211 discount. Shoppers can also pick up a 12-pound weighted blanket for $26.25, pre-lit Holiday Greenery for $52.49 and a Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 indoor grill with air fryer for $164.99.

Those who belong to Beyond+, the retailer’s loyalty program, will be able to get discounts for a longer stretch, getting 25% off their overall purchases both online and in store starting Wednesday, Nov. 25, through Saturday, Nov. 28.

Cyber Monday will actually kick off Sunday, Nov. 29. Shoppers can get $100 in My Funds Rewards for every $300 of online purchases during the two-day sale.
And beyond those events, shoppers can grab one special discounted item every day through Christmas Eve.
Several retailers, including Macy’s, Target and Home Depot, have unveiled their holiday deals earlier than normal as shoppers shift more of their buying online amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Bed Bath & Beyond started offering deals in October and has emphasized its options to pick up online purchases in store or curbside so shoppers can make sure they get their items in time for the holidays – and avoid what’s expected to be a crush of deliveries.
