Amazon has begun its Black Friday sale early today, giving us a month more of deals and offers.
The deals have gone live across all Amazon’s categories, from toys to beauty, Amazon devices and tech – and the deals run until 27th November, before even more Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are expected to kick off. Prepare for the whole month of November to be filled with discounts.
If you want to take advantage of these early Black Friday deals, you can take a look at all the offerings on Amazon’s Black Friday event section.
The Amazon Black Friday sale follows on from the retail giant’s very own Amazon Prime Day, which was held later this year thanks to the pandemic.
As well as the items on sale, Amazon is offering three months free Music Unlimited Premium if you’re a new customer. Don’t worry if you’re already signed up, you can upgrade for free to the Family Plan for three months, giving you six accounts.
Amazon has always been one of the pioneers of the modern Black Friday craze, launching their highly popular lightning deals and beginning sales well before the day itself.
So far the early Black Friday deals have included technology from smart speakers to phones, Nintendo Switch, plenty of video games to go with it and home appliances such as coffee machines.
So whether you’re after one of their signature smart speakers or want Prime to watch The Boys on the cheap, there’s bound to be something that catches your eye.

- Up to 15% off BOSE headphones

What to expect from Amazon on Black Friday
As with last year, expect Amazon to push their own products heavily – so expect decent discounts on Alexa devices, Echos, Fire Sticks, Fire tablets, and Kindles. This extends to their services also – there will almost certainly be deals on Prime Membership, Amazon Music, Audible, and Kindle Unlimited.
We’ve seen some great discounts already on the Echo Dot, going as low as £29.99 in the run-up to Black Friday – we’d expect this to go even lower on the big day itself.
This being Amazon however there will be deals on almost everything you can think of – from TVs and game consoles all the way down to toothbrushes and mops.
For those unfamiliar with Amazon, the retail giant uses a promotion called lightning deals during Black Friday – deals which only last for a few hours with limited stock. If you’re serious about getting a bargain it would be worth checking the site every few hours and maybe purchasing Amazon Prime or getting a free trial – members get access to deals half an hour early.
Will there be Audible Black Friday deals?
It’s highly likely – Amazon has a track record of pushing its subscription services during sales. Last year during Black Friday new Audible customers could get their first 4 months of Audible for £3.99 per month, 50% off the usual price of £7.99.
Audible has already set up a Black Friday 2020 page promoting a mysterious offer – this may well be a similar deal to last year with a discounted price for new customers, or maybe even a few months free. Earlier this year saw Amazon offer two months of Audible for 99p, an offer they may well repeat.
Can we expect Amazon Prime Black Friday deals?
Prime Day was delayed for the first time this year, taking place in mid-October rather than July, meaning we’ve already had a glimpse at the discounts Amazon were willing to give their subscription services. They were highly generous discounts indeed – six Prime Video Channels deal were available for 99p a month, you could get four months of Amazon Kids+ and Amazon Music Unlimited for just 99p each, and Kindle Unlimited was completely free for 3 months.
However, as Black Friday is not exclusively for Prime members, there will likely also be deals on the Amazon Prime service itself – last year Amazon offered three months of Prime for £11.99, with a similar deal likely again this year. Prime members get several advantages, such as Prime Video, free next day delivery, Prime Music, and more.
