Amazon has already started lots of lightning deals for the holidays. Many of their prices will match or be better than the Black Friday prices in store.
I suggest that you check out and bookmark the Lightning Deals Page now and check it out each morning to see if any items are on your holiday gift lists. You can select the category on the top right hand of the lightning deals. Some of the most popular deals will sell out in under a minute. My suggestion is to be at your computer right when the Lightning Deal starts and immediately put it in your cart. You then have 15 minutes to check out. During that time, you can do some price checking to see if you really want to buy the deal.
DO NOT complete that price checking price first because when you come back you might not be able to add the item to your cart. If you add it to your cart and find out the price is not that great just don’t check out. Last year many people lost out on great lightning deals because they did not immediately add the deal to their cart.
If you are not a member of Amazon Prime, this is a great time to sign up for Amazon Prime for FREE! You can try it out for FREE for 30 days which will enable you to get FREE Two-Day Shipping with no minimum order size on millions of items. This is great because otherwise you would have to pay for shipping or get to the $35 minimum for FREE super saver shipping. This free offer is only good for 30 days and after that you either need to cancel or pay for the yearly membership. I personal love it and think it is well worth the cost.
Here are a few links that show deals that will show you specific sales. Once the calendars come out for the the movie and books deals I will add these here too! These links are hard to find on Amazon so you may want to bookmark them.
