Don’t assume Amazon’s “Black Friday deals” will last beyond until tomorrow. Some deals will last several days, but others will end faster. For example, Amazon’s Daily Deals often have 24-hour countdown clocks, and Lightning Deals may last for only a few hours. Amazon doesn’t want shoppers to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to start their holiday shopping. The quantity and pace of new Amazon deals began picking up in the first week of November, and the pace has continued to speed up all month. Now that Amazon is calling it Black Friday already, 24-hours before other retailers, we’ll update this page multiple times a day right on through Cyber Monday to bring you the best deals for 2019.
