How to get the best deals from Amazon on Black Friday
Amazon will be keen to tell you about Black Friday, but there are still plenty of things you can do to stay in the picture. Of course, we'll be highlighting all the best deals right here on our dedicated Black Friday pages, but the important thing is to time your purchases. Make sure you know when the Black Friday sales actually start, because if you buy early, you'll likely be paying a higher price.
Many deals last for the entire Black Friday event. Some things, like the Fire tablets or Echo devices will often be discounted for the entirety of the Black Friday sales period, so that's about 2 weeks. That will give you time to make sure you're buying what you want.
Some deals won't last that long. Deals from other sellers - perhaps for a smartphone - might only last as long as there's stock of that product. If you see a great deal on an iPad or Apple Watch, for example, as long as you're within the Black Friday period, it could potentially sell out.
Some products are only discounted for a limited period - and often that timespan is listed on Amazon. Lightning deals are something to watch out for, because occasionally they will offer a great price for a product that's of limited stock - and if you miss out, that's it, it's finished. We've seen devices like the Nintendo Switch on Lightning deals in the past.
Of course, the other thing to consider is Prime membership, which will get you free shipping on a lot of products.
When is Black Friday 2022?
Black Friday falls on 25 November 2022 and is followed by Cyber Monday on 28 November. Amazon makes an event out of the sales, and this year the sales to start on 18 November.
What does Amazon discount on Black Friday?
Amazon will discount across categories on Black Friday, not just in technology, but in many other areas too, so it's an ideal opportunity to buy gifts before Christmas. But Amazon's biggest discounts and biggest sellers are often Amazon's own devices.
There will be discounts on Amazon Echo, Fire tablets, Fire TV Sticks and many other devices. Often these are the products that are sought out. You'll also find phones, laptops, tablets, Apple devices and more in the sales.
