Amazon has started its legendary Black Friday sales, declaring it ‘Black Friday week’ in anticipation of the Day itself on Friday 26 November 2021.
There will be daily ‘lightning deals’ - heavy discounts on specific items for a brief period of time.
Amazon, as one of the world’s largest consumer conglomerates, has the ability to offer huge discounts on the most popular brands, but also offers sale deals on their very popular own-branded goods, such as the Echo Dot and Fire tablets.
