Amazon is our go-to for everyday shopping and holiday gifting, and the best Amazon Black Friday deals of 2022 have started ahead of the sales event (which is next Friday). We know that it’s technically early, but many retailers, including Amazon, are already rolling out Black Friday deals with sales that expire within days and hours. If you’re someone who’s easily stressed out by the barrage of Black Friday sales, shipping delays, products running out, or who just doesn’t want to wake up early post-Thanksgiving, now’s an excellent time to make moves on markdowns—especially since we’re curating Amazon’s best Black Friday deals right here.
Psst—if you’re not, by chance, an Amazon Prime member and are missing out on its speedy shipping options and discounts, consider either signing up for Prime membership or giving a 30-day free trial a go.
When is Black Friday?
Not to be confused with Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale (a.k.a.Prime Day 2.0), which took place in October this year. Black Friday falls on November 25, 2022 (the day after Thanksgiving). Cyber Monday is a few days later, on November 28. Despite its technical calendar date, Amazon (and Target, Walmart, Nordstrom, Best Buy, and other big-name retailers) is releasing all manner of must-shop deals on tech, kitchen, home, beauty, and fashion products every single day that are comparable to Black Friday itself.
What were the best Amazon Black Friday deals last year?
Last year, we saw great deals across all categories you can think of, from tech to kitchen to skin care to sex toys (really). If you’re budgeting—and who could blame you, given this economy?—Amazon’s price drops are a smart way to save on major appliances, necessities, and gifts for your family, friends, and coworkers.
Some of the sweetest savings we saw last year include rare discounts on beauty products (such as Crest Whitestrips, which were 25% off), clothing and accessories (Ray-Ban, Levi's, Astr the Label), wellness goods (diffusers, PJs, bidets, massagers), kitchen appliances (Instant Pots, Vitamix blenders, Ninja air fryers, coffee pots), and bedding (Casper mattresses, Tuft & Needle sheet sets). Oh, and tech! Who could forget tech? Samsung Galaxy phones, iPhones, iPads, smart homes, QLED TVs, Kindle e-readers, soundbars, and on and on.
The best Amazon Black Friday deals of 2022
We're already seeing great deals on a multitude of products. For instance: The Fitbit Charge 5 fitness tracker is the lowest price it’s ever been, at $100. The Revlon is about at its lowest price ever too (it was briefly $45 in March, and is now $48). Meanwhile, this classic Levi’s jean jacket is inexplicably 70% off (and, we might add, sold out at Nordstrom). And why wait on upgrading your TV for Thanksgiving Day football when there are such steep price drops on Amazon Fire TVs and Samsung Frames to boot?
