For the first time ever, my dad has started online shopping for the holidays. Years prior, he poked fun at us for taking care of all of our shopping through Amazon.
In his eyes, some of the holiday magic was missing. He had a point. But having boxes arrive at your door is a lot easier than fighting for a parking space, waiting in line, and throwing a bunch of spontaneous purchases in your cart at the last minute that you don’t really need. Online shopping makes holidays less stressful. Plus, if it’s a store like Amazon, you have everything you need on one site.
Amazon is your one-stop shop for all of your holiday essentials.
Plenty of us remember when the site carried only books. Slowly but surely, it widened its web to include makeup, groceries, clothing, and even toys. The latter is extremely important, as big-box stores like Toys R Us — which used to be essential around the holiday season — are currently no more.
Since the site is so expansive, it’s key to know what types of deals will be offered for Black Friday ahead of time. With Amazon, it’s essential to keep a watchful eye on items you want. The online retailer has been known to pull out surprise sales at the last minute and often extend its deals so that everyone can partake. Amazon is also very sneaky, meaning that sometimes you might not know how long a deal will last.
Here are a few of the must-shop Amazon Black Friday deals that have been revealed in advance. Some are at their price point right now, meaning you may want to get an early start.
