When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday was on November 25, 2022. As our explainer on the history of Black Friday describes, the term originated in Philadelphia, where police coined it to refer to the resulting chaos from throngs of fans crowding into the city on the day after Thanksgiving, ahead of the annual Army-Navy football showdown.

Many retailers will compete hard for the best Black Friday deals this year. Check out Amazon's daily deals page to find bargains on everything from kitchen appliances to tablets, phones, laptops, and more.
