November has just begun and that means Amazon is kicking off its Black Friday Deals Store today as part of its Countdown to Black Friday, just as it did last year.
While there will be tens of thousands of sales throughout the 50 days, the ones our readers are most interested in obviously are the electronics, hardware, software, gadgets and games, and Amazon already has plenty to look at, including a Samsung 65-inch 4K TV for under $990.
All users will be eligible for free shipping on most items, and starting November 8, Amazon Prime members will be eligible to start using its Amazon Key smart lock and cloud cam delivery system (which is still $249.99 and not on sale - yet).
Amazon is pushing shopping ease with all of the ways users can buy, when and how they want. Voice shopping through Echo devices using Alexa, the Amazon app (and the new AR View feature), and an all-new Treasure Truck coming to 25 select cities:
Treasure Truck is a new way for customers to shop this holiday season. Customers can opt-in to receive notifications from the Amazon App for special must-have offers from Treasure Truck, order the item, and pick-up at the truck all season long. Each time the truck rolls, one hand-picked offer will be available including gifts for the adventurer, foodie, hostess, kids and techie, as well as delicious seasonal food items, and more. Look for the truck at various locations this holiday season.
Small business owners and entrepreneurs will also be showcased during the event, mainly though the company's curated gift guides, gift finder, Amazon Lists and its Interesting Finds feature.
As with Amazon Prime Days, there will be regular sales, Lightning sales and daily specials, so you will likely want to check back often. That Samsung TV is only on sale for another 14+ hours.
