Of all the Black Friday sales, the Amazon Black Friday deals is the first place any prospective deal hunter should look. That's because Amazon has a track record stretching back well over a decade of delivering huge discounts on thousands upon thousands of premium brand products during Black Friday.

And the remarkable thing with Amazon Black Friday deals is that they are store wide, with everything from technology to fashion, appliances to toys, and jewellery to perfume, make up and more reduced in price.

If you can't wait until Black Friday, head over to the Today's Deals (opens in new tab) page to shop cheap deals and low prices sitewide today.

Black Friday doesn't take place until Friday 25th November 2022, but Amazon is known to kick off their deals early and will have themed sales weeks in the run-up to the event. Just as we suspected, Amazon is running a second Prime Day sale (opens in new tab) called the Prime Early Access sale (opens in new tab) in October, giving Prime members an extra month to shop low prices.

The sheer breadth of Black Friday deals available at Amazon means it's one of the top retailers that has to be checked out during the big event. To see the early deals from the Amazon Black Friday sale, its most popular product categories and our shopping tips for the big day, read on.

When will the Amazon Black Friday sale start?

Expected start date: Friday 18th November

Amazon is one of the best retailers to shop on Black Friday, with an extensive selection of deals on a wide range of products, including fashion, tech, entertainment, and more.

In 2021, Amazon set their early Black Friday deals live from the 8th-18th November and officially kicked off their Black Friday event on Friday 19th November. Taking this into consideration, we predict that Amazon will set off their early deals on the 7th-17th November and launch their official event on the 18th.

While you don't have to be a Prime member to shop Amazon's Black Friday sale (unlike on Amazon Prime Day (opens in new tab)), signing up to Prime will typically mean you can see the lightning deals earlier than everyone else. So, make sure to sign up to Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) to find the best deals during Black Friday 2022.

Tips for shopping the Amazon Black Friday sale

To get the best deals possible this Black Friday, you need to be prepared, especially if you’re shopping across multiple sites. Below are our tips on how to shop in the Amazon Black Friday sales. For tips on other retailers like Argos, Currys, John Lewis, Very, AO.com and ASOS, just click those links!

1. Create a wishlist

Start off by creating a wishlist. On Black Friday, there’s a lot of chaos and you have to be quick to get the deal you want, whether you’re in store or shopping online, so it’s best to start off with a plan. 

Create a wishlist of products that you want to buy and stick to it. For example, if you’re looking for an Echo Dot, make sure you know what style and generation you want before you start shopping the sales. As you do this, it’s also a good idea to check what site they’re available on. Since the Echo Dot is an Amazon product, you’ll want to shop at Amazon for the cheapest prices, so next to your wishlist items, note down where you can get them from.

Making a wishlist means you won’t waste time flicking through the sales waiting to have your attention grabbed by something you don’t need. This also saves you from finding something you completely fall in love with and then when you go to buy, you realise it’s already sold out. 

2. Do your research

Whether it’s products or the store, it’s important to do your research before you start spending some serious cash. For the product, we’d recommend you check its original price and protection policy. This helps you get a better idea on how good the deals are and if it’s a big tech product, you want to make sure it’ll be protected.

For the site, check delivery details and return policies. If the item isn’t going to get to you for months or you have to pick it up from the store, it’s important that you have this information so you can decide if you really want it or if you’re just going discount crazy! On return policies, you want to make sure the item can be returned, how you’d go about doing that and how many days you have to return it. 

3. Create an Amazon account

If you’re shopping from a website like Amazon, it’s a good idea to create an account before the sales. This helps you keep track of your orders and delivery process, plus you’ll typically receive discount codes and treats by having an account with them.

4. Check previous Black Friday deals

Checking the previous Black Friday deals is helpful as it gives you an idea of what to expect. This can cover previous price and percentage cuts or what products were popular last year. It’s also a well-known fact that Black Friday is a way for retailers to clear out last year’s stock in preparation for newer models. However, some of the best deals are on the older iterations of products that are just as good as the older ones, so it’s a good idea to check the popular models from last year’s sales.

Do I need a Prime account to shop the Amazon Black Friday sale?

The quick answer is... no. You don't need to have a Prime membership to shop on Amazon this Black Friday as the deals will be running sitewide throughout the Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend. This is different from Prime Day (opens in new tab) which is an Amazon-only event.

However, while you don't need a Prime account, having one could be helpful on Black Friday as Prime members get early access to the Amazon Black Friday sale. This means you get exclusive access to Black Friday deals before anyone else, so you can find the product you want and buy it before it sells out.

It's worth noting that the Prime membership price has recently gone up in the UK (opens in new tab), so if you're a new sign-up, you might want to consider signing up to Prime before the Black Friday sale so you can shop using the free trial. You can cancel at anytime, too.

Amazon Themed Weeks for Black Friday

In the run-up to the official Black Friday event, Amazon will typically run themed weeks or sales, so you can find price drops on specific products and categories. So far in 2022, there's been Gardening Week and Fragrance Week. All of this gives us a strong indication that these deals could make a come back during Prime Day 2 and Black Friday 2022.

The type of themed weeks we saw in the lead-up to 2021 included Toy Week, Coffee Week, Smart Home Week and more. As we get closer to the 2022 Amazon Black Friday sale, we'll highlight all the themed weeks that are on, including how long they run for and what deals you can find.
