Updated to include new deals from Amazon and Best Buy
The holiday shopping season is primed for a strong start with many retailers not waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to offer great deals. Amazon and Walmart have already started offering discounts on thousands of items online, including electronics, toys, clothing, jewelry and kitchen items.
These stores may have taken their cue from a recent Nielsen holiday sales survey of more than 25,000 U.S. households, which found that nearly a quarter of consumers have already started their holiday shopping in September. The same survey reported that 75% of consumers who are holiday shopping this year plan on shopping online.
Amazon launched its Black Friday Deals store on Nov. 1, with new deals announced every day until December 22. Amazon Prime members get the first crack at heavily discounted items through Lightning Deals that get offered to them 30 minutes before they become available to non-Prime members.
Here are some of the great deals to look out for on Amazon's Black Friday Deals store:
