Amazon is our go-to for everyday shopping and holiday gifting, and the best Amazon Black Friday deals of 2022 have already started ahead of the sales event. We know it feels early, but many retailers, including Amazon, are rolling out Black Friday deals throughout November, with sales that expire within days and hours. If you’re someone who’s easily stressed out by the barrage of Black Friday sales, shipping delays, or products running out, now’s an excellent time to make moves on markdowns—especially since we’re curating Amazon’s best early Black Friday deals right here.
Psst—if you’re not, by chance, an Amazon Prime member and are missing out on its speedy shipping options and discounts, consider either signing up for Prime membership or giving a 30-day free trial a go.
When is Black Friday?
Not to be confused with Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale (aka“Prime Day 2.0”) which took place in October, this year, Black Friday falls on Friday, November 25, 2022 (the day after Thanksgiving). Cyber Monday is a few days later, on Monday, November 28. Despite its technical calendar date, Amazon (and Target, Walmart, Nordstrom, and other big-name retailers) is releasing all manner of must-shop deals on tech, kitchen, home, beauty, and fashion products every day that are comparable to Black Friday itself.
What were the best Amazon Black Friday deals last year?
Last year we saw great deals across all categories you can think of, from tech to kitchen to skin care to sex toys (really). If you’re budgeting this year—and who could blame you, given this economy?—Amazon’s price drops are a smart way to save on major appliances, necessities, and gifts for your family, friends, and coworkers.
Some of the sweetest savings we saw last year included rare discounts on beauty products (such as Crest Whitestrips, which were 25% off), clothing and accessories (Ray-Ban, Levi’s, Astr the Label), wellness goods (diffusers, PJs, bidets, massagers), kitchen appliances (Instant Pots, Vitamix blenders, Ninja air fryers, coffee pots), and bedding (Casper mattresses, Tuft & Needle sheet sets). Oh, and tech? Who could forget tech? Samsung Galaxy phones, smart homes, QLED TVs, Kindle e-readers, soundbars, and on and on.
The Best Early Amazon Black Friday Deals of 2022
Glad you asked! We’re already seeing great deals on a multitude of products. For instance: The best-selling Bose headphones are currently at their lowest price in a year (better than last Black Friday, even), while the Roomba 694 is at its best price ever—comparable to Cyber week 2021. The Instant Vortex is 25% off (its lowest price since December), and the Fitbit is 38% off, which is the best deal we’ve ever seen. And you thought you had to wait until the end of November to get a robot vac.
