Amazon Just Released Tons of Early Black Friday Deals—These Are the Best Ones
The year’s biggest shopping holiday came early. Don’t miss your chance to score big savings on products from Le Creuset, Apple, Kindle, and more.
Just ahead of the holidays, Amazon has just released tons of early Black Friday deals, meaning eagle-eyed shoppers can get a head start on holiday shopping. While this is great for those looking to save a few dollars on big purchases, there’s also a practical aspect: shipping delays. Amazon is actively encouraging consumers to shop early so that they can get the items they want and their packages on time—and they’re not wrong. Retailers and package carriers always struggle to meet higher demand and shipping volumes during the holiday season, and many may remember the weeks-long delays in 2020 amid the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Experts anticipate that we’ll be facing similar delays this year.
Shopping online may be more expensive, too: The United States Postal Service is implementing higher shipping fees during the peak holiday season, and FedEx is adding a fuel surcharge on certain shipments starting November 1. This isn’t great news for last-minute shoppers—and supply issues could make for low stock in stores, meaning that shopping in person won’t be a reliable option, either. So this is a great time to make your shopping list and take advantage of these early deals. There’s no knowing how long these deals will last or for how long products will be in stock, so it’s wise to pick something up as soon as you see it. Whether you’re shopping for your kitchen or yard, yourself or someone else, we’ve got you covered with some can’t-miss items.
