How to find the best deals in the Amazon Black Friday sale
Lightning Deals and Top Deals are expected to be some of the best offers during the event and are only available for a limited time and while stocks last.
These products are expected to sell out fast, so the best time to check for Lightning Deals is first thing in the morning. You’ll then have time to research the product and set yourself reminders for when the best Lightning Deals start.
The easiest way to preview, track and shop Lightning Deals is by receiving deal alerts on your smartphone via the Amazon App. Go to the Amazon App menu, tap Settings, and then Notifications to turn on Watched and Waitlisted Deals. You can then add upcoming deals to your watchlist, which will push notifications on your phone when the deal is about to go live. Further information can be found here.
Another quick way to find the best deals is by browsing categories you know you’re interested in and regularly buy from.
And this year, the retailer has handpicked the best deals with an orange badge labelled ‘Top Deal’. These items on sale will be at their lowest price of the year.
