To make sure you don't miss when Black Friday deals start on Amazon, you'll have to mark your calendar early. The deals kick off sooner than you think.

You won't have to wait much longer to score some bargains, because Amazon officially kicks off its Black Friday Deals Week on Friday, Nov. 22, according to a Nov. 18 press release.
