We’ve been eager to know what kinds of Black Friday deals Amazon has this year and now we have a good idea. You’ll need a bit of vigilance and effort to take advantage of them, though, as the holiday specials kick off on Friday, Nov. 20, and run for eight straight days, with new offers introduced every five minutes.
There will be 10 Deals of the Day announced at midnight on Thanksgiving, plus 10 more on Black Friday itself, with Lightning Deals sprinkled throughout the entire eight-day shopping event.
Some of the Lightning Deals will be available only through the Amazon Mobile Shopping App. Look for them, starting at 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 26, on the “App Only Deals” tab. As we previously noted, Amazon Prime members will get a 30-minute jump on most Lightning Deals.
The retailer will aggregate all the deals at the Amazon Black Friday hub. This year, it has also instituted a “Watch A Deal” feature that alerts you on a mobile device when the deal you’re interested in goes live.
Amazon says it will cut prices by up to 45 percent on select Samsung and LG TVs this year. Here’s our take on the retailer’s specials:
In addition to the Black Friday deals mentioned below, the retailer will slice about $50 off video game console systems, which is comparable to what we’ve seen in other holiday deals. But Amazon has several bundles from which to choose.
There are also deals on computers, tablets, memory cards, and printers.
Whole Foods Market has delivered on many attributes key to millennial shoppers, yet has not established itself as their grocery store of choice. Despite investment and innovation against this key demographic, Whole Foods has yet to crack their code. Acquisition by Amazon may close the gaps needed to make Whole Foods Market millennials’ retailer of choice.
