The holiday season is coming earlier this year. Mark your calendars for Black Friday on November 24, and Cyber Monday on November 27.
Respectively, all the deals that are going to be revealed before the Black Friday, will come earlier as well.
The first set of interesting deals and offers will hit online stores this weekend – November 4-5. Amazon is always first with revealing the Black Friday news. The company has just opened a special section with 2017 Black Friday deals and offers.
In a press release, we read that more than one hundred million items will be eligible for free shipping this holiday season. Amazon has prepared deals for over 50 days, and these deals will be “better than ever before.”
Some of the most popular starting points for holiday shoppers are our Black Friday Deals Store, Amazon’s curated Home and Electronics Gift Guides, the Holiday Toy List, the newly redesigned Gift Finder, our Handmade Gift Shop, and Interesting Finds.
Amazon was working hard to offer customers more ways to discover and shop great deals. Besides online store, you can use Amazon application on mobile platforms, Voice Shopping, AR View, or Treasure Truck. You can also shop in one of Amazon’s physical bookstores.
Besides the Black Friday Deals Store, Amazon offers other ways to find relevant products. Make sure to try curated lists in the most popular categories, extended gift guides, or the gift finder. The last option will help you find gifts based on a few simple options you select.
Let’s go back to 2017 Black Friday Deals Store. At first, you’ll see a list of deals very similar to what Gold Box home page looks like.
Indeed, currently offered deals are the ones from Gold Box, but we can expect exclusive deals coming any minute. They will be listed under several special sections of the Black Friday 2017 Store. The ones we are most intrerested to see are:
For the time being, there is nothing huge to explore. You can see offers on certified refurbished Amazon devices. Kindle Paperwhite ($99), previous-generation Amazon Fire HD 10, Kindle Voyage ($149.99), or 1st-generation Amazon Echo ($89.99), are among the offered devices.
What can we expect this Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
I think a deal bigger than ever before will arrive on Kindle devices. On November 19th, we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Kindle. Having in mind Amazon was already running a special 10th-anniversary promotion on Kindle and Fire devices, we can see even bigger discounts this November.
Which devices will get the biggest price cuts? Be ready to save huge on the Fire tablets. The range of Amazon’s multimedia devices has been completely refreshed this year. From Fire 7 to Fire HD 8, to HD 10, the tablets are updated with better screens, bigger memory, and new colors.
Although the newest-generation Fire tablets are new in town, you can be sure you’ll get at least the same discounts as last year.
Amazon Fire 7 for 33-35 dollars? Very probably, if not on Black Friday, then on Cyber Monday 2017. Getting Fire HD 8 (the regular price is $79.99) for less than $50 is less probable, but still possible.
Subscription-based services offered by Amazon are getting bigger and better, and we can expect the deals on them as well. We will be spotting for you the deals on Kindle Unlimited (40% price cut on the 24-month plan is a reference point). A price cut of the Audible subscription is also possible – it was already one of the 10th-anniversary deals.
Don’t expect to save on the newest waterproof Kindle Oasis 2. The 1st-generation of the top-shelf e-reader was rarely included in any deal. It happened twice, and it was not during Black Friday or Cyber Monday 2016.
As usual, we will follow the offers and put the most interesting ones into the overview of the best ebook-related deals offered for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017 (the link will appear here).
We’ll include offers on Kindle ebooks, devices, and services; deals and offers on Amazon Fire devices and accessories; deals on iPad cases and accessories; deals for book lovers from Amazon Handmade; Kindle Unlimited and Audible deals on pre-paid plans; and everything that will catch our attention.
Stay tuned and get ready for the holiday shopping thrill!
