The best part of Black Friday shopping with Amazon is that you can browse from the comfort of your own home—no need to brave the crowds or step away from those Thanksgiving leftovers. But you don’t have to wait until Black Friday 2021 to save big on Amazon’s fleet of devices, including a Kindle e-reader, Echo Show 8, and Ring Video Doorbell, as the online retailer has announced its annual Prime Day 2021 sale will be June 21 and 22. The Prime Day savings are a good indicator of the discounts you can expect to find on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In the past we’ve seen deals like $40 off the Echo Spot and $60 off the Ring Video Doorbell.
In the past, Amazon has hosted a countdown to Black Friday that started about a week before. In 2020, Amazon kicked off a Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week that started November 1. Then the Amazon Black Friday Deals Week itself started on Monday, November 23.
Whenever Amazon does decide to drop its best deals, shoppers have to be ready because some of the most popular items will only be available for mere minutes before selling out. Check back here for updates about Amazon's holiday shopping deals.
Black Friday shopping tips: Prime members will more than make up for the cost of membership with exclusive discounts and free 2-day shipping, as well as free 1- and same-day shipping on eligible items. Not a Prime member? Then sign up for a free 30-day trial before Black Friday to take advantage of the perks. And for those with Alexa-enabled devices, including smartphones and tablets, be on the lookout for ways to get early access to these deals (we’ll post about it here should it happen, so check back often!).
Every year Amazon releases a list of 100 toys that are sure to show up on many kids' Christmas lists. Amazon makes it easy to find the perfect gift, you can shop the list by age or activity, but make sure you shop early, as these toys will definitely be hard to find come December. The 2021 Amazon Toy List hasn't been released yet, but we'll update it here when it's ready. Until then look back on the most popular toys from last year:
