Black Friday is still several weeks for most retailers, but for Amazon – the store with Earth’s largest selection of products – holiday shopping starts now. On November 1, 2016, Amazon launched a discounted shopping section called the Black Friday Deals Store. The store also launched more than a dozen curated holiday gift guides, so buying gifts for loved ones has never been easier.
Black Friday Deals Store
The Black Friday Deals Store is now available here until December 22. There will be tens of thousands of products to choose from, all at sale prices. Daily Deals adorn the page, with more items going on sale as often as every five minutes. There will be up to 20 huge deals per day. The more often you visit, the more deals you’ll find.
Items from all categories will be featured at the Black Friday Deals Store. TVs and Kindles are expected to be the hottest items. You can save 10% to 70% on items such as electronics, toys, clothing, kitchen appliances, home goods, jewelry and more. However, many of these deals are available for one day only, so if there’s something you really want, you can’t wait a few days to think about. Time is of the essence, so don’t delay.
Holiday Gift Guides
Amazon boasts 18 gift guides this year, so no matter who’s on your holiday shopping list, Amazon has the perfect gift. These curated guides can be found here. The electronics gift guide features more than 500 items, including video games, music, wearables, tablets, laptops, cameras, TVs and home office supplies. The home gift guide has a selection of more than 1,000 decorations, home furnishings, backyard furniture, cooking utensils, pet supplies and more. As the name suggests, the holiday toy list has all the season’s hottest toys at great prices. There are also gift guides for fashion, sports, Amazon devices, computers, beauty supplies, musical instruments, baby essentials and even handmade goods.
