Black Friday 2020 deals have kicked off on Thanksgiving Day itself. Over the last few years, online and offline retailers have been offering their Black Friday deals for almost an entire week ahead of Thanksgiving and some of these deals and offers last well after the Cyber Monday sale. We've handpicked some of the best Black Friday 2020 offers you can grab while sitting from India. Most of these deals won't directly ship across so you'll need to rely on a friend or a relative, or use a third-party shipping service.
Apple AirPods Pro ($169 (roughly Rs. 12,600))
Apple's AirPods Pro are down to one of their lowest prices this year during Black Friday 2020 sales on Amazon and Walmart. Since neither of these stores is shipping AirPods Pro directly to India, you'll have to get someone to bring these along, or use a third-party shipping service. Currently down to $169 (roughly Rs. 12,600), the AirPods Pro are cheaper by around Rs. 4,000 from the usual online selling price in India. At this price, the AirPods Pro are expected to sell out quickly during Black Friday sales in the US.

Nintendo Switch ($300 (roughly Rs. 22,300))
Nintendo Switch is selling at $300 (roughly Rs. 22,300) during the Black Friday 2020 sale on Best Buy. There's no flat discount here but you do get a free game. The console isn't officially available in India, but you can grab one via third-party sellers online and offline at around Rs. 30,000 these days. The deal also includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (download) and a 3-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online membership. Best Buy doesn't directly ship to India so you'll need to consider a third-party shipping service or get someone to bring it along for you.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones ($199 (roughly Rs. 14,800))
The popular Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones with active noise cancellation are down to $199 (roughly Rs. 14,800) during Black Friday promotional sales on Amazon US. This price is lower than the festive season sales we had in India earlier this year. But this deal is only worth it if you get someone to bring it along, or find a cheaper deal with a third-party shipping service.

Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet ($60 (roughly Rs. 4,400))

Amazon is selling the Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet with a rugged case at a discounted price of $60 (roughly Rs. 4,400) during its Black Friday 2020 sale this weekend. Amazon claims it will replace the tablet if it breaks, but you'll have to be in the US to claim that 2-year guarantee. The tablet also comes with 1 year of Amazon Kids+ subscription which includes apps, games, books, videos, and other educational content.

The Arlo Pro 3 is currently down to $300 (roughly Rs. 22,300) during Amazon's Black Friday 2020 sale this weekend. The system comes with two wireless cameras with 2K resolution and HDR support. They can be used both indoors as well as outdoors. The cameras offer a 160-degree angle of view and feature a two-way audio system and a siren. The camera system works with Amazon Alexa and is extremely easy to setup. The only hassle here is going to be figuring out a decent third-party service to get it shipped to India.

Another digital product that's hot during Black Friday deals is domain registration and hosting. Namecheap's Black Friday 2020 offers are live.
