Amazon has announced that its popular Black Friday sale event will begin this week, and last eight days. From Friday, new deals will be added “as often as every five minutes” for eight straight days leading right up until Black Friday. What’s more, the company will offer 10 ‘Deals of the Day’ on Thanksgiving with ten more on Black Friday…
As usual, there will be plenty of Lightning Deals on thousands of products throughout the one-week period, and Prime members will get early access to these deals, beating the line by a full 30 minutes before non-Prime shoppers can get their hands on them.
As a bonus to mobile shoppers, Amazon is also going to introduce deals exclusive to shoppers using the Amazon Mobile Shopping app on Android, iOS and Fire OS. If you have the app downloaded, you’ll be able to access these by going to the “App Only Deals” tab. These deals will be released every day between 3PM and 11PM Pacific Time, starting on Thanksgiving. Prime members in select areas will be able to take advantage of Amazon’s Prime Now two-hour delivery too.
In preparation for this year’s shopping event, Amazon has included a new ‘Watch A Deal’ feature in its mobile shopping app which allows consumers to pick the deals they’re interested in, and receive a notification when it goes live. Amazon hopes this means consumers won’t have to be glued to their phones as much.
There are a ton of products being discounted, many of which Amazon has already revealed in its press release. Sticking to the Google-related ones, and those Android fans might enjoy, you can expect to see the following deals:
- Kindle Fire – $34.99 (down from $50)
