Amazon announced its Black Friday store is officially open. With several weeks to Black Friday this still typically marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season and retailers including Walmart, Kohl’s and Dell all have Black Friday deals currently live.
With Black Friday ads leaking daily now, here is a summary of what you can expect from Amazon during Black Friday 2017 and what deals are already available.
Amazon Black Friday 2017 Tips:
- Amazon will incentivize shoppers to sign up for Amazon Prime (sign-up link). Sign up because Prime gives us free two-day shipping and often 30-minute early access to Amazon Black Friday Deals. Best of all the free 30-day trial can be cancelled after Black Friday and Cyber Monday close.
- Historically Amazon will focus heavily on deals on its own product such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Fire TV. I expect this to happen again.
- Amazon will promote a press release around November 17th where it will list the best doorbusters for Black Friday and announce the Countdown to its Black Friday sale has started. Be sure to scan these deals closely.
