Do you like to plan your holiday shopping ahead of time, or are you the type to wait for the best possible deals? If your style is the latter, then, like us, you’re probably itching to get a look at what the best Amazon Black Friday deals will be in 2019. You’re not alone! And though Amazon hasn’t announced their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals yet, there are a couple of hints as to what we can expect this year.
When will the sales start?
Last year was Amazon’s biggest Black Friday ever. They sold millions of products between Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year, and 2018 Cyber Monday was their biggest sales day of all time.
That means they’ll likely pursue the same sales strategies as they did last year, hoping for a repeat performance.
According to CNET, Amazon device deals, specifically, will start the Friday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 22, with discounted devices added to the site every few days through Thanksgiving Day.
However, in the lead up to Black Friday last year, Amazon had two weeks of special deals for customers and their Cyber Monday deals started on Sunday night. They might do the same thing this year, so get your wallets ready.
What will be on sale?
As for which products will be on sale, you’ll see steep discounts on Amazon products like the Amazon Echo suite of products (the Echo Dot was their best-selling Black Friday product last year), CNET confirmed. For example, Amazon Fire HD 8 tablets will be on sale for $50, saving shoppers $30.
Starting. Nov. 24, the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote will be half the price, $25; and the Amazon Fire TV Cube will be $30 less at $90.
Starting Nov. 27, a two-pack of the Ring Indoor Camera will be priced $100, a savings of $20; and the Blink XT2 3-Cam System will be $185 versus its usual price of $250.
Starting Nov. 28, the Amazon Echo Dot (third generation) will be more than half off, priced at $22 versus $50. Or, you can spring for the Echo Dot with a clock for $35 versus $60. The Amazon Echo (second generation) will be $60 versus $100, and the Amazon Echo Show 5 will be $50 versus $90.
It’s also very likely we’ll see discounts on electronics like gaming consoles, televisions, smart home products, laptops, tablets, and phones.
