Amazon’s Black Friday Sale Starts This Friday: Here’s What to Expect | IGN

Amazon’s Black Friday deals officially begin November 20 and run through November 27, and as is the case every year, Amazon has given us a sneak peak at some of the many product categories and proposed savings we can expect.

Now, this is my fourth year (or is it the fifth?) in a row covering Black Friday for Amazon, and I know for a fact every previous year, Amazon would tease a whole list of sales, and then its actual, most-notable deals would basically just appear without warning. I don’t have any reason not to think this year will be the same.

Amazon Black Friday

Instead of a proper, single-day event, this year Amazon is having Black Friday Week, kicking off this Friday, November 20. The first round of deals, as has been the case in years past, will almost certainly be on Amazon’s own devices. My personal pick for best Black Friday deal on Amazon’s devices is the $59.99 Kindle, but I’m a big-time Kindle supporter and use mine all the time.

Amazon gave us all the details on its Black Friday sales for Amazon devices, so those won’t be a surprise.

Here are the Amazon devices and their sale prices. Note: these prices aren’t live YET, but will be beginning Friday. I’d even recommend checking them earlier, because sometimes Amazon just flips the “sale price” switch to the “ON” position ahead of schedule.

Amazon 4KTV Black Friday Deals

Amazon’s Black Friday TV deals are always solid, and this year looks to be no exception. Amazon is promising savings on┬áSamsung 4KTVs, Sony Bravia 4KTVs, “TVs under $1000″ and 25% off 4KTVs 75” and larger. And those are just the 4KTV Black Friday deals its letting us know about beforehand. Expect to see big time savings on 4KTVs, just in time for your Xbox Series X or PS5… if you got one.

Amazon Video Game Black Friday Deals

We already know one of the best Black Friday video game deals comes by way of the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 bundle. Unlike last year, this time the Switch is the latest model with the improved battery life, and Nintendo’s threw in a 3-month membership to Nintendo Online.

Black Friday PS5 or Xbox Series X Availability at Amazon

It’s just impossible to know at this point whether or not Amazon will have either of the new consoles available for order during its Black Friday week. I’d say it’s likely, but who knows at this point? Walmart said it will have PS5 and Xbox available for order beginning at 7PM ET on Wednesday, November 25, and GameStop also said it will have consoles available, although only in stores. It’s a roll of the dice.
