Worried about shopping online this Black Friday? You needn't be. Several sales are set to be online only in order to aid social distancing, so we're all in the same boat. And we are here to help you shop safely, no matter if you are buying from Target, Amazon, Wayfair or Argos. 

While shopping online definitely makes it easier to find the very best deal – we can also help with that! – it does mean that you'll have to wait for your item to arrive in the post. If you are a tad apprehensive about buying things online – whether that be a new sofa or a smart speaker – we get it. Lots of us have had issues with missing parcels, and should you not be working from home at the moment or you are out of the house a lot, then you may miss the postman. How to score a Black Friday bargain online, and ensure it reaches your front doorstep? Buy the best video doorbell. These ones we've picked below are on sale in the UK and US, and they can be delivered fast, too, so you can set yours up way before the big day – deals start on the 27th of November. 

See below for the best video doorbell deals around right now, for peace of mind when you order online, Black Friday or not. Video doorbells also make it easier to spy on who comes in and out of your home, and you can answer your door when at the supermarket. Just ask your mailman to pop your package in a safe place and stop worrying! FYI: the Ring Doorbell – Amazon's video doorbell – currently has a seven to nine week wait in the US. So, it's safe to say that video doorbells are a sought-after item at the moment. We wonder why...
