ASDA was one of the first retailers to bring the Black Friday sales to the UK from the States but has steered clear from them in recent years.
The supermarket launched the bargain bonanza in 2013 but ditched it in 2015 after it sparked violence among shoppers trying to snap up the best deals.
Instead, the food chain, which is owned by US-giant Walmart, decided to focus on "lower prices all year round".
Black Friday has become the biggest shopping day in the calendar, with thousands of bargain hunters bagging deals online and on the high street.
It falls on the Friday after the US annual Thanksgiving holiday and this year it will be on November 27.
The day usually marks the start of the Christmas shopping – although if you're as organised as this mum then you would have started yours back in July.
Here, we take you through everything we know about Asda's Black Friday event so far:
Is Asda taking part in Black Friday?
Just two years after bringing the tradition to the UK, Asda stopped running the event.
But in 2018, it launched its own day of November deals and called it the "Green is the New Black" event.
Last year, it ran a "Roll Back" event with savings across tech, homeware and fashion.
For 2020, Asda is bringing back its Black Friday sale and there are already dozens of goods on offer through its George brand, which sells toys, homewares, clothes and electronics.
What was in Asda's Roll Back sale in 2019?
While we wait for Asda to release the full selection of goodies on off at this year's sale, we take a look at some of the best offers it ran in 2019.
Shoppers could scoop bargains online and in store, so this will hopefully give you an idea of what you can expect.
Huge deals were to be had on tech and homeware buys, as well as fitness products.
Budding chefs, or new homeowners, could kit out their kitchen with a complete set of Tefal pans for just £40, although it previously retailed for £90.
ASDA's discount on the Fitbit Inspire, which went down from £69 to £49, was ideal for those looking to start the New Year with a health kick.
And for those into tech, there was a range of smart entertainment options available.
The RCA Gemini Tablet was reduced from £129 to £89, while the NOW TV stick was half price and can be snapped up for just £15.
Shoppers could bag 20 per cent off the entire George fashion range, excluding sale items.
What deals are on offer for Asda's 2020 Black Friday sale?
Asda has already started reducing toy and electrical products under its Black Friday sale, even though the Black Friday sale doesn't start officially at other retailers until November 27.
It has been giving shoppers up to £100 off some of its more pricey items and £4 off on its cheaper ones.
But the retailer has promised to slash prices on "clothing, baby products, home accessories & more!" during this year's event.
Here are some of the best deals we've found so far.
In its toy section, Asda is selling a Lego City Brick Box set for £20, slashing it from the original price of £34.97, saving you £14.97.
Youngsters who have creative minds will be able to spend hours playing with the emergency services toy set, which can be used to create two scenes.
The first is a toy police station with jail, a police motorcycle, and two car toys – a police car and a small tow truck.
The second set features a bigger police transport truck with police motorcycle and a smaller, but well-equipped police station.
Parents or family members who have Disney princesses in their lives can now let them cook their own magical menu items with the Pink Disney Princess Wooden Kitchen.
