The early Black Friday deals start tomorrow when Amazon Black Friday deals kick off eight days of Black Friday deals through Gold Box specials, lightning deals and even earlier access to these deals if you are an Amazon Prime member.
While many shoppers are already planning their trip to score the most Walmart Black Friday deals, Amazon is boasting about the ease of online ordering. Steve Shure, Amazon Vice President Worldwide Marketing says, “Our customers are redefining Black Friday shopping. They want to stay home with family, enjoy some turkey and football and shop the hottest deals from their phone, tablet or PC.”
During the redefined Amazon Black Friday deals shoppers will see new deals appear as fast as every 10 minutes on Amazon starting Friday November 21st through Black Friday.
If you are an Amazon prime member you will get early access to the Amazon Black Friday 2014 deals. When you sign in, you’ll see Prime early access to the deals with 30 minutes on, “select lightning deals,” which Amazon says will include many of the biggest and most sought after Black Friday deals.
For shoppers who are not already an Amazon Prime member, there is a free 30 day trial that offers free shipping and early access to the Black Friday deals on Amazon. Just remember to cancel it after shopping for the holidays if you don’t want to pay $99 for a full year of the service.
You’ll find the Amazon Black Friday deals on the landing page, where you can look at the many deals online at a computer and on your iPhone, iPad, Android or any other connected device. Not only can you see the current deals, but you can also peak at upcoming deals to plan your shopping, but only a briefly in advance.
When deals go on sale shoppers rush to add the items to their carts, where they have roughly 15 minutes to decide if they want the item. If something is out of stock already you can join the waitlist, which will allow you to get the item at that price if enough people don’t check out in the given time.
Here’s a sample of the Amazon Black Friday deals you’ll see throughout the next eight days, including big discounts on HDTVs and game systems.
