While you may think Black Friday is the day to shop in stores and Cyber Monday is when you should hit the internet, Amazon is offering store shoppers a reason to stay home this year.

Not only will Amazon have Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, the retailer has already launched some deals for its “Black Friday Countdown” sale — a full week before the biggest shopping day of the year.

The deals begin today, Nov. 22, and include this year’s most popular gifts, new and trending finds, holiday essentials, toys, fashion, Amazon Devices and more. The deals will run through Black Friday, Nov. 29.

You’ll also find one-time-only deals throughout the day on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. “Deal of the Day” items change multiple times a day, so you’ll want to keep checking back.

Along with deals on Amazon brands and devices, you’ll find up to 40% off select toys from Lego, Barbie, Hot Wheels and more, up to 50% off Lands’ End clothing and discounts on brands like adidas, KitchenAid and more.

Some of the hottest items this year are bound to be electronics. If they’re on your list, Amazon Devices are starting at just $29.99. You can save on Echo DevicesFire TVFire TabletsKindle and home security.

For example, you can save $25 on the all-new Echo Dot with clock.

You can also get $50 off the Fire HD 10 Tablet.


You’ll also be able to save $149.99 on the Amazon Ring Video Doorbell 2 with Echo Show 5 bundle. Regularly $288.99, it is now $139.99. The doorbell alone without the Black Friday bundle is $129.99, meaning you’ll be getting the Echo Show 5 for just $10.

These deals follow 21 days of pre-Black Friday deals Amazon offered from Nov. 1-21. Prices on everything from toys and games to home goods and fashion were marked down, with each weekend having a different focus; Nov. 8-10 focused on toys while Nov. 15-17 saw discounts on holiday items.

If you’re looking for unique gift ideas, you may want to check out Amazon’s curated gift guides in categories like electronics, home and more. If an item is on sale, it will appear in the gift guide as well as on the main site.
