Amazon Prime Day might still be fresh in your memory, but next week, Black Friday will be here. Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) are the best days of the year to shop for TVs, kitchen appliances, smart home devices, and fashion, and Amazon is one of the most convenient places to shop, especially for Prime subscribers.

Although Black Friday officially starts the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon's already releasing several deals during its Holiday Dash sales event which updates every day with new, limited-time deals. 

When will Amazon have its Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale?

Black Friday is an annual sales event that traditionally happens at the end of November, after Thanksgiving, and followed closely by Cyber Monday. This year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday land November 27 and November 30, respectively.

After the on-going Holiday Dash event, Amazon will officially kick off their Black Friday sale on November 20 with discounts on tons of products including Amazon-branded goods, Echo devices, Ring smart home products, and more. Just like during Prime Day, Amazon is highlighting several small businesses during their Small Business Holiday Deals sale, with up to 20% off select products. 

Are there any early Amazon Black Friday deals?

Shoppers can expect thousands of deals to crop up on the days leading up to and following the big sales event. For instance, Amazon launched its Holiday Dash event mere days after Prime Day, which promises "Black Friday-worthy deals" through Thursday, November 19. Amazon refreshes its offers, which run the gamut of categories including tech, clothing, and kitchen appliances, daily.

That said, many retailers, including Amazon, often wait until the big day to drop the very best deals.

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

However, shopping on Amazon costs more and takes longer without a Prime membership. That said, if you're like most Americans and plan to do most of your holiday shopping during Black Friday, we strongly suggest you become a Prime member.

A Prime membership costs $13 per month, or $119 for a full year, which may seem steep, but it's still completely worth it. Of course, you could sign up for a 30-day trial, or just pay for a month-long membership. (You're in the window where you can start now, shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and not have to pay for the subscription.) Amazon also offers discounted Prime memberships for a few select groups.

No matter how you spin it, subscribing to Prime is the best way to make the most out of Amazon during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Can I order online and pickup in a store?

Unlike Target, Best Buy, and Walmart, Amazon shoppers are unable to shop at a store.

However, Amazon offers a few ways to ship your orders in addition to the standard two-day shipping, including free same-day shipping (which may be hard to come by during Black Friday), Amazon Day scheduled deliveries, and Amazon Hub Locker pickup, which offers a self-service delivery location, or locker, to pick up and return your orders.
