When it comes to Black Friday shopping online, no one does it bigger than Amazon. Starting today, Amazon’s Black Friday hub will be featuring new deals literally every 10 minutes, which is probably too much for the feeble human brain to handle.
There will be limited-time Lightning Deals, Deals of the Day, and a slew of discounts for everything from 4K TVs to Rubik’s cubes. And of course Amazon Prime customers will be treated like royalty with free shipping and the ability to get deals before everyone else.
For the next eight days, Amazon will have some of the best deals on the internet. You’ll get up to 45% off on Samsung TVs, like its 40-inch Smart 1080p LED TV for $328 and 55-inch Curved Smart 4K Ultra HD LED TV for $1,298 (quote a mouthful). There will be a 50-inch Toshiba TV for $199, top of the line DSLRs with lens kits for $500, Kindle ebook discounts, deals on appliances, and yes, even 60% off over 100 different kinds of wines. Amazon is also great for buying dirt cheap Blue-rays, so keep an eye out for those.
The best part is that you can do all this shopping from the comfort of your couch or bathroom rather than having to fight off the angry hordes at six in the morning in the Best Buy parking lot.
Amazon Prime gets you free two-day shipping on just about everything, which is pretty great. It’s normally $99 per year, but you can easily sign up for a 30-day trial and use it till your heart’s content for the next week. You’ll also get to see the Lightning Deals, which can sell out quickly, 30 minutes before non-Prime customers.
If Amazon is the king of online shopping this Black Friday, it looks like Walmart will be top dog in the world of physical retail. Wally World is price matching deals from the internet (like Amazon) as well as other retail stores. Just bring a print out of the deal in with you and show it to an employee at the register.
