Amazon and Walmart starts Black Friday deals
The Black Friday 2015 sales have started as of the first day of November.
On November 1, 2015, Amazon launches the Black Friday deals store. It promises thousands of deals on technology, toys and clothes between now until December 22. TVs, digital cameras, projectors and connected products for the home are all included in a list of products to give customers a taste of what to find there.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, has always promised consumers killer deals. Retailers like Amazon already started their big holiday sales. Amazon has kicked off its 2015 Black Friday deals the day after Halloween.
For this year, Amazon will give shoppers with Prime membership early access to more than 30,000 lightning deals. Prime Early Access will give subscribers a 30-minute head start to buy items before non-members arrive. That could be a big advantage, as the best-value items tend to sell out very fast.
Here are some of the deals that Amazon has to offer this year:
30 percent off Sony XBR55X900C 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD TV with a Blu-ray Player
$170 off the Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens
47 percent off Jaybird X Sport Bluetooth Headphones
Optima HD37 Full 3D 1,080p 2600 Lumens DLP Home Cinema Projector for less than $800
Up to 50 percent off select Home Automation products
On Nov. 1, CNET.com reported that among the early deals from Walmart will be an iPad Mini 2 for just $199 as part of their early rollback deals. It offers a savings of $70 over the regular price. It's also half of what a customer would pay to buy the brand new iPads available from Apple. Shoppers will be able to avail this deal either in stores or online via the Walmart website. The deal will be a part of the rollbacks offered for the next eight weeks of the holiday shopping season.
Black Friday 2015 falls on the day after Thanksgiving which will be November 27th this year. Many retailers will have their in-store sales on Thanksgiving Day or night, with some deciding to open early the next morning, and some, including REI and Costco, choosing to remain closed to give employees some time off for the holiday. There are still more deals to come so shopaholics out there should better be prepared.
