Black Friday Sales Guides

Now through November 26, T3 will be covering some of the best Black Friday sales of the year with complete guides to the biggest retailers of the season. You can already check out a few of our comprehensive deal guides below!

When does Amazon's Black Friday sale start?

Amazon kicked it's Black Friday sale off pretty early this year, starting October 4 and running for almost two months. While an official Black Friday sale at Amazon won't show up until mid-November at the earliest, Amazon has essentially started dropping early Black Friday deals during their Epic Daily Deals event.

Will Amazon's Black Friday deals be better than Prime Day?

In some instances, we're seeing larger discounts during Amazon's Black Friday sale. What varies during Amazon's Black Friday sale is the wider coverage of products, with a much larger focus across more categories.

Prime Day tends to bring the best discounts on Amazon devices, with many getting up to 50% off during Amazon's yearly savings event. With Amazon's Black Friday deals however, so far the discounts on Amazon devices haven't quite met the bar set by Prime Day.

We have seen much larger discounts across non-Amazon products, though. Popular TV brands including Samsung, LG, and Sony, are all receiving major discounts on their latest 4K TVs, LEDs, OLEDs, and QLED displays.

Headphones tend to be popular as well during Black Friday, with fan favorites like Apple AirPods Pro getting a $50 price cut as well as Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ dropping to $109.99 – their largest price cuts all year.

Will Amazon's Black Friday deals get better?

Expect a bit more from Amazon come Black Friday proper as most retailers tend to save their best for the big day. While Black Friday seems to have been extended throughout the months of October and November this year, the best deals won't be around until November 26th at the earliest.

Amazon's essentially been in sales mode since Prime Day, which saw a four month delay due to the effects of the pandemic. Successful as ever, even with the delay, having Prime Day in early October closed the gap between two of the largest sales days of the year by a large margin.

The deals we've seen these past two months at Amazon have been a wide range of products. With the recent launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, gamers can expect to save on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X consoles, games and accessories. Good luck on getting the next-gen consoles, however, as they quickly sold out and become the hottest Christmas gift of the season.

Should I expect shipping delays during Amazon's Black Friday sale?

The sad truth this year is that yes, you should definitely expect shipping delays and late deliveries thanks to a myriad of issues going on right now.

From stock shortages to delivery companies being short staffed and overworked, it's a very real possibility this year that you won't receive the items you ordered in a reasonable timeframe.

Start shopping now! Amazon thankfully already has Black Friday deals live due to these issues, and is working to get products out as fast as possible. Don't wait until the last minute this year to do you holiday shopping.
