Best Amazon Black Friday deals: Up to 50% off Echo, $100 off Sonos Beam, $199 AirPods Pro, & more
Hot on the heels of Amazon's huge Prime Day event, the company is already getting its Black Friday sale in full swing. A whole bunch of deals are already available at Amazon as we get closer to Black Fridya itself including basically every Amazon device plus tons of discounts in tech, smart home, toys, appliances, health and fitness, and more.
We've already got details on all of the Amazon early Black Friday deals, so read on for more.
With the late placement of Prime Day this year and the general uncertainty caused by the current global health crisis, we saw a lot of other retailers bring forward a bunch of Black Friday deals and kick them off in October — a far cry from the usual late-November sales. We've also seen retailers like Walmart and Best Buy starting their sales earlier than ever.
Not to be left behind, Amazon announced an early 'Holiday Dash' daily deals event that ran through the end of October and start of November. It has now followed that up with a Black Friday Deals Week to countdown to the big day itself with "Black Friday-worthy" deals appearing every day.
We're already seeing a ton of Black Friday deals on Amazon devices, as well as Black Friday laptop deals, sales on 4K TVs, smart home tech, fashion, health and fitness, baby products, and much more. We'll keep this post updated to ensure that all of the Black Friday deals below are the very best on offer.
Amazon Black Friday Deals Week explained
Though Black Friday itself isn't until November 27, Amazon has already kicked off the savings with its Black Friday Week promotion. The event promises to offer "Black Friday-worthy" deals with fresh deals dropping every day — many of which will only be available for 24 hours.
The rotating selection of daily deals will feature some big-name brands and popular product categories as we continue to move closer to Black Friday itself. Though it doesn't have a brick-and-mortar strategy to worry about, Amazon's Black Friday plans are similar in spirit to those already outlined by other retailers where the deals are starting much earlier this year than normal, offering shoppers a chance to tick off everyone on their holiday gift list without going into a store.
We've got the scoop on all of those deals so you don't miss any, and we've highlighted a few of the best deals on Amazon devices below, many of which are now live with others launching in the coming days.

How do I prepare for Black Friday at Amazon?
There are lots of little things you can be doing now to prepare yourself or Black Friday at Amazon. Some may be obvious and others you may not have considered. Let's review some Black Friday tips to ensure that you're ready for maximum savings on the big day.
The best place to start is with your Amazon account. Check to ensure that your Prime membership is in good standing and won't be up for renewal before late-November when we expect Black Friday sales to pick up. You'll also want to make sure that your billing address is correct and that your credit cards aren't expired. It may seem silly now, but those extra few seconds you save during checkout could be the difference between scoring a sick deal and missing out on it.
Keep an eye on Thrifter's Twitter account for all of the best deals going live daily so you can be the first to pounce on them before they sell out or get back-ordered.
You're going to want to get yourself an Alexa-enabled device. This may enable you to get deals exclusive to voice shoppers, deals even other Prime members won't be able to get first as it has in years past.
The Amazon Prime Rewards credit card is for the hardcore deal hunters. You need an eligible Prime membership to get the most benefits out of this card. Signing up for it gets you a $50 Amazon gift card that you can spend on Black Friday. Plus, you can get 5% back at Amazon on whatever you spend. If you plan to go all-out on Black Friday, this is a no-brainer.
