Yes, you can get free stuff on Amazon — even without a Prime membership! My most recent Amazon freebie hunt turned up smart deals on how to get free samples, audiobooks, cloud storage, and more goodness. Check it out!

Following the retailer’s Prime Day event in October, Amazon is already rolling out early deals ahead of Black Friday, which lands on November 25. If you’re worried about inflation this year, Amazon Black Friday deals offer some of the best savings, and they’re arriving earlier than ever.

Black Friday is followed directly by Cyber Monday on November 28, 2022. Technically speaking, as soon as Cyber Monday begins, Black Friday ends. The best discounts are usually limited to these two days (and the weekend between them); however, some deals stick around through the end of the following week.
Take advantage of promotions that offer a free product with a qualifying purchase by adding the free product and the qualifying items to your Shopping Cart and entering the claim code. To claim a free product offer: Add the free product and the qualifying items to your Shopping Cart.
“Places like Walmart and Best Buy tend to offer the best deals on Black Friday.” The exception is Amazon, which tends to have better deals on Cyber Monday, as long as you’re a Prime member. If you’re willing to buy products from resellers, Cyber Monday is a great time to shop on eBay.
Amazon Black Friday deals are about the same as what you see on Prime Day, but some big brands like Apple use Black Friday to drop their prices to the absolute lowest of the year. The downside is that Black Friday deals tend to sell out quicker than Prime Day deals.
Some retailers only offer Cyber Monday savings, but Amazon is much more generous. The e-retailer generally offers an entire week dedicated to online savings! While Amazon does have particularly enticing sale items on Cyber Monday itself, the retailer likes to spread out the savings over Cyber Week.
Black Friday is like the Super Bowl of shopping, but an after-Black Friday sale is even better. In fact, there are a few holiday shopping days, like Cyber Monday, between Black Friday and Christmas worth paying attention to — and even more sales on your favorite brands and products into the new year.
Depending on what you’re shopping for, Black Friday can be the cheapest time to buy. But not every deal during November is a good deal, and this sales season will most benefit the smart shoppers who plan in advance.

When is Black Friday 2022? In 2022, Black Friday falls on November 25th.

Every year it takes place the day after Thanksgiving, although many retailers will kick off their sales up to three weeks before the main event. So you may start spotting deals as early as the beginning of November.

What to expect from Amazon’s Black Friday sale 2022

After the impressive deals seen last year, we are expecting yet another year of huge price drops for Black Friday 2022.

You can be sure that Amazon’s own line of devices will see price cuts: so if you’re in the market for smart devices such as Amazon’s Echo, Fire TV, and Fire tablets then Black Friday is the time to pick them up.

Amazon also offers lightning deals that are only available for a few hours on Black Friday, these are often on things like hoovers, grooming devices, and home and garden accessories but see huge discounts.

What were the best deals in last year’s sale?

As we have come to expect from Amazon when it comes to Black Friday, they give away some great price drops on a huge selection of products.

You will see deals on everything from your favorite skincare products and to the latest fashion brands to home appliances and garden tools, you will be spoilt for choice.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the incredible price drops we saw:

Robot Vacuum and Mop, WiFi/App/Alexa, 2-in-1 Mopping Robot Vacuum Cleaner Combo: $549 (save $400.10)

Is Amazon taking part in Black Friday this year?

Amazon has yet to confirm whether it will be taking part in Black Friday in 2022, although we are pretty certain it will.

It’s taken part in the event for the last few years and we wouldn’t expect that to be any different this year. As soon as we have more details on the sale, will update this page, so be sure to pop back.

new amazonWhen do Amazon Black Friday deals start?

Last year Amazon kicked off its Early Black Friday deals on the 8th November, three weeks before the actual shopping bonanza.

Therefore, we’re expecting a similar timeline this year – we’d start looking out for deals from around the 4th of November.

As soon as we have confirmation of dates, we’ll let you know.

When does the Amazon Black Friday sale end?

In previous years, Amazon has ended its Black Friday sale on Cyber Monday, which is when most retailers’ will end their sales.

This year, we would expect Amazon’s Black Friday deals to end at 11.59pm on November 28, aka Cyber Monday.
