We have tips to help you identify great Amazon Black Friday deals, and we’re assembling an epic Amazon Black Friday deals list for 2017, one that will offer our recommendations for everything from phones, Kindle e-readers and cameras, to PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and even toys.
You’ll still have to be fast to claim these on sale gadgets. Amazon often sells out of its most popular deeply discounted electronics, with limited Deal of the Day and Lightning deals. The same thing will happen on Cyber Monday 2017.
Amazon Prime is always a must-have on Black Friday. It has major perks, like free two-day shipping, and members sometimes get exclusive deals tailored for Prime users.
You can get early access to the Lightning Deals on Amazon that don’t stick around for very long. In other cases you might get extra discounts on prices that have dropped already, or you might get deals that don’t apply to non-Prime members.
It’s hard to make Amazon Black Friday predictions, but generally speaking you’re at an advantage if you sign up for Amazon Prime (the retailer always wants to boost those subscription numbers after all).
Amazon Lightning Deals
Amazon loves its Lightning Deals: as the name suggests, these are very short-lived offers that usually involve items where the stock is low, so if you don’t jump in when you’ve got the chance, you might miss out.
Don’t feel pressured into deals you don’t feel sure about – just be aware that Lightning Deals aren’t going to stick around. As they’re only available for a short amount of time, they often offer some very tasty discounts.
In the words of Amazon, a Lightning Deal is “a promotion in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period of time”, and you can usually find them on the Today’s Deals page. As we mentioned above, Prime members get early access to the Lightning Deals on Amazon.
