Black Friday 2019 is quickly approaching, which means some of the best deals of the year are coming and the temptation to spend will be everywhere.
If you play your cards right this holiday shopping season you’ll be able to save big while working through your “Nice” list, but it’s important not to get caught up in the hype of the holiday.
Over the past few years, Black Friday has evolved from a one-day event to a seasonal mentality that lasts well beyond the day after Thanksgiving.
It’s important to know when you can find the best deals, and surprisingly, it isn’t always necessarily on Black Friday. Some hot products will actually be overstocked by many stores (including Amazon) and available at a better price closer to the holidays. Likewise, online shopping is making it easier to find bargains before Black Friday itself.
If you do decide to shop on November 29 this year, be sure to know when your goal purchases will have the best price and always price compare to ensure you’re getting the best deal before making your final decision. It’s even easier at an online store like Amazon!
Amazon’s Black Friday 2019: Here’s What You Need to Know
Where Can I Find Amazon’s Black Friday Ad?
Amazon will be officially launching its Black Friday sale on November 22 with deals on various products popping up through Black Friday. Amazon Prime members will have access to Prime exclusive deals and Prime free two-day shipping.
You can check out the deals on amazon.com/blackfriday. You can also visit smile.amazon.com/blackfriday to shop for the same great deals while a portion of your purchase on eligible products goes to a charity of your choice!
What Time Does Amazon Open for Black Friday?
Since Amazon is an online store, you’ll be able to make purchases anytime. In the past, non-Prime members had to make a minimum purchase of $25 to qualify for free shipping, but last year the company offered free shipping on all purchases for the holiday season. Discounts and deals will be available daily beginning on November 22 and leading up to Black Friday, including Thanksgiving. Many offers will only be available for 24 hours — with a few selling out much faster than that — so be sure to watch for upcoming deals and have your payment information updated in your account.
What Kind of Black Friday Deals Can I Expect From Amazon?
Amazon is able to offer the best deals on their own products with the most availability, and each year they take advantage by discounting the latest electronics. This year, Amazon is previewing an Echo Dot for $22, the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice remote for $19.99, and the Ring Video Doorbell Pro for $70 off.
In addition to Amazon products, you’ll also find big discounts on fashion, additional electronics, toys, household essentials and more. You can check out Amazon’s Holiday Toy List, Fashion Gift Guide, Electronics Gift Guide and more online for additional ideas and savings.
Other Ways to Prepare for Amazon’s Black Friday Shopping Season
- Plan your purchases by flipping through the released 2019 holiday toy list, electronics gift guide and holiday home gift guide.
- Sign up to be notified of the best deals from this year’s Black Friday ad release.
- Keep in mind that a lot of the company’s best deals will be available leading up to November 29, not just on Black Friday. Reduced prices will be expiring quickly on most products.
- Many offers are only valid for 24 hours, while others sell out in minutes, so the best advice we have is to get an idea of the purchases you need to make ahead of time!
Finally, Don’t Forget to Comparison Shop!
Before you make your final purchase, use a website like Google Shopping to compare the prices at other stores to avoid missing out on a better deal.
While you should always remember to price compare before buying, the best advice we can offer for this year’s Black Friday season is to set a budget for yourself and stick to it.
Take advantage of great deals on purchases that you need, but remember, don’t get caught up in the hype of the holiday!
