Amazon Black Friday 2022: what to expect

If Amazon’s second Prime Day is any indication, expect a little something for everyone on your Black Friday list. Some of the best deals from the Prime Early Access sale included 10% off the just-released second-generation Apple AirPods Pro, 13% off the 2022 iPad Air, and record prices on other Apple products. We’ve also seen great deals on Amazon devices to give away, like the Kindle Paperwhite and Amazon Echo Show 8.

Other popular items on Prime Day 2 were Casper pillows, cult beauty products from Laniege, the original Peloton bike, and LG’s 65-inch C1 OLED TV.

Of course, Amazon’s Black Friday sale is a great opportunity to pick up Amazon devices, and you’ll find great deals on smart TVs of all sizes and prices. When it comes to home and kitchen, expect deals on vacuum cleaners from popular manufacturers like Dyson, Shark and Bissell, as well as kitchen appliances from Ninja, Instant Pot and KitchenAid.

Last year, Amazon announced a record Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday. The retailer says toys, homewares and apparel were its top-selling categories, with top gifts including the Revlon One-Step Hairdryer, Beats Solo3 Headphones and Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote.

When is Amazon’s Black Friday?

This year, Black Friday 2022 lands on Friday, November 25, the day after Thanksgiving. Cyber ​​Monday 2022 falls on November 28. While Amazon will certainly be participating in Black Friday, it’s clear that there are plenty of Black Friday deals available right now.

Is Prime Day better than Black Friday?

Prime Day brings the lowest prices of the year on Amazon’s own products. Prices for Amazon devices like Kindles, Fire TVs, and Echo devices are typically lowest on Prime Day. It’s worth noting that Amazon also owns Ring and Blink, both of which offer home security systems.

That said, Prime Day is only for people who have a Prime subscription. Black Friday, on the other hand, is open to everyone.

Generally speaking, the discounts are more or less the same between Black Friday and Prime Day. We typically see Prime Day-like pricing on Amazon devices on Black Friday. The biggest difference is that Amazon’s Black Friday sale offers price reductions on a wider range of products and categories. Amazon Black Friday deals include competitive pricing on big ticket categories from smart TVs to mattresses.

To understand the true value of any deal, we recommend using the free CamelCamelCamel tool, which lets you track the price history of everything on Amazon. We’re also big fans of Keepa, which has a browser extension that actually offers a price history chart right on every Amazon product page.

Do you have to be a Prime member to shop on Black Friday on Amazon?

Unlike Prime Day, which requires a Prime subscription, Amazon’s Black Friday sale is open to everyone.

However, Prime memberships come with some great perks. If you’re like most Americans and plan to do most of your holiday shopping during Black Friday, we highly suggest getting a Prime membership.

What are the most popular Amazon devices to give away this year?

Knowing that Amazon tends to give its own devices the biggest discounts, here’s a quick rundown of this year’s most popular devices.

  • Kindle: This year, Amazon revamped its base Kindle model and introduced the all-new Kindle Scribe, an e-reader you can write on. These models are unlikely to see sales since they are new releases, but you can expect to see older models like the Kindle Oasis and Paperwhite down to historic lows. We also expect to see some great bundles, including Amazon’s e-readers and accessories like cases and Kindle Unlimited.
  • Echo Speakers: We’re seeing deep discounts on Amazon’s all-new 5th Gen Echo Dot. We also often see deals with Echo speakers of all price points bundled with other smart gear, like smart bulbs, Ring doorbells, and more.
  • Fire TV devices: Amazon also announced a new Fire TV Omni QLED this fall, and it’s currently on sale. If you’re looking for even better deals, keep an eye out for Amazon’s older TV models and Fire TV streaming devices — they’ll likely drop to their best prices of the year.
  • Ring and Blink security cameras: Amazon’s new lineup of 2022 devices includes the new Ring Spotlight Cam Pro, Blink Mini Cam Tilt, and Blink Wired Floodlight Camera to keep tabs on your home, inside and out. They might drop in price this Black Friday, but if you’re looking for a safe bet, keep an eye out for Ring doorbells and older Blink camera models. They often fall to historic lows both individually and in aggregate.
