Amazon early Black Friday deals: When do the deals start?
Officially, Black Friday falls on November 27th this year, and Cyber Monday on the 30th. Many of the biggest price cuts on the Amazon stores will be saved until then.
However, Amazon, like its competitor Best Buy Black Friday deals, will be slashing prices all month long, right up until Cyber Monday is over.
Amazon early Black Friday deals: What are the best deals to be looking for?
As mentioned above, the biggest discounts tend to fall on the products with the highest prices, naturally. If you're looking to buy a piece of cardio equipment, like one of our best elliptical machines, you could potentially save yourself hundreds of dollars or pounds.
However, don't sleep on Amazon's lightning deals. All throughout the holiday period, you'll see deals with just a few hours left to claim them: Amazon's way of keeping shoppers interested.
Many of these deals aren't really all that, and serve as a way to clear surplus product. However, in amongst these lie real gems. We've already seen deals come and go on hot products like the Apple Watch SE and Fitbit Versa Lite, with more excellent deals to come.
Amazon early Black Friday deals: Strategies to help you shop smart
- Make a Wish List. If you have items you know you want, checking the price of these on a regular basis could help you score a fantastic deal.
- Keep a list of your favourite stores and brands. Whether you're after a new Dyson vacuum or a new pair of Nike trainers, running through that list a few times over the following week could help you net a deal on something that will improve your quality of life, rather than an impulse buy.
- Shop the most expensive items. The biggest items will have the biggest proportional discounts, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds on an item you were going to buy anyway.
- Don't forget the lightning deals! These quick-fire deals don't hang around, and you often only have minutes to bag a sweet bargain.
