This is a definite case of ‘last but not least.’ As strictly an online marketplace, Amazon doesn’t have to print traditional ads and thus is less susceptible to failing victim of early ad leaks like we’ve seen from so many of its competitors. Early this morning Amazon finally shared with the world its plans for the Black Friday holiday shopping season.


Often considered the ‘holy grail’ for Black Friday shoppers, Amazon traditionally knocks-out the competition by offering deeply discounted Lightning deals in rapid succession. This year its upping the ante once again by promising new deals as often as every 10 minutes along with scheduled daily deals. Be sure to follow our social networks closely as that’s where we will be sharing the absolute best Lightning deals as they happen: TwitterRSS FeedFacebookGoogle+.

Walmart thought they were going to get nearly a week head-start on the competition, but Amazon is stepping up to-to-toe with the brick and mortar giant by kicking of its Black Friday deals just 2 days later on Sunday November 24th.

“We are heading into the busiest and most fun time of the year for Amazon, with an astonishing number of deals for customers,” said Craig Berman, Vice President, Amazon Global Communications.

In addition to the pre-announced deals, Amazon typically price-matches the best deals from its competitors. So there’s still a chance you may not have to camp out to score your favorite doorbuster deal. The 2 best things you can do to prepare for Black Friday at Amazon is turn on 1-click ordering for a speedy checkout and become a Prime member to receive free 2-day shipping with all deals. Also, be sure to bookmark Amazon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal pages.

Below are examples of some of the deals included in Amazon’s Black Friday. Again, you can expect several surprise deals and price matches along the way so don’t be discouraged if the list doesn’t excite you.
