Amazon gets an early start on the holiday shopping season

Deals & Shopping
November 2, 2015

Amazon isn’t waiting until Black Friday to start offering deals for shoppers. The online retailing giant has already unveiled its dedicated Black Friday Deals Store – more than three weeks before the usual start of the holiday shopping frenzy.


Amazon’s Black Friday deal site.

And even now, there are a number of deals sure to catch the eye of any iOS device owner. Some of the best look to include a four-port USB car charger for $10.99, a four-pack of Apple-certified Lightning cables for $11.89, and a 3,000 mAH external battery pack for $9.99.

Anyone who is an Amazon Prime Member can also receive access to certain deals 30 minutes before the general public. A Prime membership costs $99 per year. And while free, two-day shipping is the main draw, there are also a number of great perks for any iOS device user. You can take a look at all those here.

Until the promotion ends on the actual Black Friday, Nov. 27, Amazon is promising “tens of thousands of deals.”

Overall, the deals so far don’t particularly look all that inspiring and similar to Amazon’s well-panned “Prime Day” back in July. But hopefully that will change as we get closer to Thanksgiving.
