Amazon will officially launch its Black Friday sale at midnight Pacific Time on Thanksgiving Day. If you’re an Amazon Prime member and you have an Alexa-enabled device, you’ll have early access to these deals starting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22. Prime members will also have access to Prime exclusive deals and Prime free 2-day shipping.

The online retailer plans to offer deals in over 30 categories this year as well as 30 or more Deals of the Day â€“ in addition to thousands of Lightning Deals. The best deals so far are on Amazon’s own devices. However, if you’re looking for the very best price on items like TVs and laptops, you may want shop other retailers like Walmart and Best Buy.

For example, Amazon’s Black Friday deal on a 55-inch Sony smart TV is $1,000. That’s $700 more than Walmart’s Black Friday deal on a 55″ smart TV!  Additionally, Amazon does not reveal the brand of its Black Friday TV deals until they go live, and they tend to sell out in the blink of an eye.

Deals will become available at different times November 17 through November 24. If you see a deal you like, you can use the Amazon app to set a deal alert to notify you when a specific item goes on sale.
