With more people planning to get their holiday shopping done earlier than ever this year, Amazon is one of many retailers getting a head start on slashing prices. With tens of thousands of Black Friday deals launching on Friday, Nov. 20 (and some even before then), customers can enjoy major savings on electronics, home goods, beauty products, and more. In addition, Amazon’s Black Friday 2020 sale includes a gift guide from small businesses, so you can shop local and take advantage of special prices ahead of the holidays.
From Friday, Nov. 20 through Black Friday, Nov. 27, customers can head to Amazon's Black Friday website or the Amazon app to take advantage of Black Friday Deals Week specials as they go live. Many of these deals are only available for 24 hours or while supplies last, so you'll want to browse the "Black Friday Deal" badge or mark down your must-buys for the holiday season to make sure you don't miss out. You can also take advantage of Alexa-only deals by asking, "Alexa, what are my deals?"
Need a little help coming up with some items for your gift list? Customers who want to be more mindful of where their money is going will want to check out the Small Business Holiday Deals, which will go from Nov. 26 through Nov. 30. Meanwhile, Oprah’s Favorite Things list offers a curated round-up of unique Black-owned businesses to support.
Amazon will be offering tens of thousands of items on sale, but some notable discounts available as of Nov. 16, include 50% off a 23andMe Health + Ancestry Personal Genetic Service Kit, which normally goes for $199.
