Amazon usually starts its holiday season of deals off a bit earlier than you'd expect, and it is usually around the time we flip the calendar from October to November. Today, Amazon kickstarted its "Countdown to Black Friday" event, which includes a slew of deals that are available, including some lightning deals, more Gold Box Deals and much more. Amazon also has a number of Gift Guides available, in case you are unsure of what you should get someone on your list this holiday season.
While Amazon has started its Countdown to Black Friday already, it isn't making Black Friday a single day. Similar to previous years, it will be a full week long event, culminating with Cyber Monday on November 27th. That's when you'll find the biggest deals of the season from Amazon. But that isn't when the big deals will end. As Amazon will continue all the way through Christmas, giving customers 50 days of deals to find everything they need for the holiday season. So you'll want to bookmark the Amazon Black Friday deals page here, and keep checking back from time to time to see what Amazon has in store. Of course, we'll be keeping a lookout as well and highlighting some of the bigger deals of the holiday season.
Those that have Amazon Prime will get early access to all of the deals. Usually early access is about 2 hours, and that may seem like a small window, but for some deals, they will be sold out before that 2 hours is up. The good news for those that don't have Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and try it out. That includes getting free two-day shipping and in most cases, $3.99 next day shipping. After that it is only $99 per year, or if you are a student it's $59 per year (students also get an extended 6-month trial). Amazon also will have some great deals for voice shoppers. To find the latest voice shopping deals, you can simply ask Alexa what her deals are and she'll let you know.
To get things started today, we've listed some of the best deals to kick off Amazon's Countdown to Black Friday, today, below. Where you'll find a number of great deals, from TV's to monitors, to cameras and really everything in between.
