The retailer’s early offers run from 26th October to 19th November, but even more Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers are expected to kick off as we get closer to the event. This year, Black Friday falls on 27th November, a day after Thanksgiving on the 26th.

So far, early Black Friday deals have included Fire TV Sticks, Samsung phones, Nintendo Switch bundles and kitchen appliances. The early Amazon Black Friday sale follows on from the retail giant’s very own Amazon Prime Day, which was held later this year thanks to the pandemic. Prime Day saw limited time savings on items such as Shark vacuums, which also seem to be popular across multiple retailers in early Black Friday sales. Just like on Prime Day, we’ve also seen discounts of more than £100 on electric toothbrushes.

According to Statista, last year the most sold product on Amazon was the Echo Dot with over 40,000 units purchased. Other top ten bestsellers for Black Friday on Amazon in 2019 include the Fire TV Stick, Nintendo Switch and Kraken Black Spiced Rum.

You can take advantage of Amazon’s early Black Friday deals by taking a look at all the offerings on Amazon’s Black Friday event section. You can find offers from popular brands such as Samsung, LG, Apple, Nintendo and Ninja.

Our advice? If you spot something you’re after with a Deal of the Day offer, it could be best to purchase, as there’s no guarantee it’ll be back again. That said, don’t feel pressured to buy something on a whim that you don’t want or need. Plus, it’s good to know that Amazon has extended its returns until 31st January for Black Friday and Christmas purchases made between 1st October and 31st December.

We’re constantly updating our content to bring you the best deals at the cheapest prices. While there are many great offers to be found for Black Friday, not all savings are necessarily as lucrative as they first seem. However, using Chrome toolbar extension CamelCamelCamel, you can see the price history of an Amazon product so you know whether the discounted price really is a good deal. We’ve listed further tips in this article to help you stay alert to scams or prices that are too good to be true.

Current stand-out Black Friday offers at Amazon include a £40 saving on Apple AirPods Pro (now £209 – the best price right now) and up to 20% off LG TVs. In addition, Amazon is offering three months free Music Unlimited Premium if you’re a new customer.

So whether you’re after a new TV, something for your home, a Christmas present, or want to upgrade your smart tech, you’re sure to find something of interest in Amazon’s vast early Black Friday sale.

How to shop smartly at Amazon: Black Friday shopping tips

Amazon’s prices can change greatly from one day to the next. To ensure you’re truly getting a great deal this Black Friday, we’ve put together some shopping tips:

  • Use the Chrome toolbar extension CamelCamelCamel or the website. This handy resource monitors Amazon’s prices and shows you how low prices have dropped in the past. It’s invaluable if you’re deciding whether to purchase or wait it out for a better price.
  • Know the RRP and check on multiple sites. To decide whether it’s a good deal or not, do some research to understand the RRP of the item and prices elsewhere.
  • Don’t panic purchase. Some Amazon deals are limited time offers, making it very enticing to buy something on a whim. Make a list of what you’d like to buy during the sales and stick to it.
  • Be wary of of fake reviews. False reviews are said to have increased this year, due to more of us shopping online. Be sure to check reviews on other sites to compare.
  • Be alert to scams. Never give anyone your personal details if they request them over email. Common scammers will claim that there is a problem with your account or encourage you to redeem a ‘free’ prize. Use a secure password when shopping online.

It may also be worth signing up to Amazon Prime to make the most of next day delivery and other benefits. You can enjoy a 30-day free trial if you’re new to the service.

Best Amazon deals from last year

It was no surprise that Amazon had some fantastic deals last year – take a look at some of the best:

What to expect from Amazon on Black Friday

As with last year, expect Amazon to push their own products heavily – so expect decent discounts on Alexa devices, Echos, Fire Sticks, Fire tablets, and Kindles. These discounts are also expected to extend to their services. We expect that there will almost certainly be deals on Prime Membership, Audible, and Kindle Unlimited as we’re already seeing an offer on Amazon Music Unlimited.

We’ve seen some great discounts already on the Echo Dot, going as low as £29.99 in the run-up to Black Friday. We expect this to go even lower on the big day itself.

This being Amazon however there will be deals on almost everything you can think of – from TVs and game consoles all the way down to toothbrushes and mops.

For those unfamiliar with Amazon, the retail giant uses a promotion called lightning deals during Black Friday. These deals last for only a few hours with limited stock, meaning they can even sell out before the deal is due to end. If you’re serious about getting a bargain it would be worth checking the site every few hours and maybe purchasing Amazon Prime or getting a free trial – members get access to deals half an hour early.

Will there be Audible Black Friday deals?

It’s highly likely that there will be Black Friday deals on Audible. Amazon has a track record of pushing its subscription services during sales. Last year during Black Friday new Audible customers could get their first 4 months of Audible for £3.99 per month, 50% off the usual price of £7.99.

Audible has already set up a Black Friday 2020 page promoting a mysterious offer – this may well be a similar deal to last year with a discounted price for new customers, or maybe even a few months free. Earlier this year saw Amazon offer two months of Audible for 99p, an offer they may well repeat.

Can we expect Amazon Prime Black Friday deals?

Prime Day was delayed for the first time this year, taking place in mid-October rather than July, meaning we’ve already had a glimpse at the discounts Amazon were willing to give their subscription services. They were highly generous discounts indeed – six Prime Video Channels deal were available for 99p a month, you could get four months of Amazon Kids+ and Amazon Music Unlimited for just 99p each, and Kindle Unlimited was completely free for 3 months.

However, as Black Friday is not exclusively for Prime members, there will likely also be deals on the Amazon Prime service itself to entice new subscribers. Last year, Amazon offered three months of Prime for £11.99, with a similar deal likely again this year. Prime members get several advantages, such as Prime Video, free next day delivery, Prime Music, and more.

However, one of the benefits is 30 mins early access to Black Friday deals – so it may be worth buying a month of Amazon Prime beforehand anyway or signing up for a free trial.
