Provides start shortly after the success of Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day may be over, but other sales are just beginning.
Following the success of Prime Day, “Black Friday deals arrive earlier, last longer and hopefully save us a lot of money,” said Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst at DealNews.com.
Usually prices don’t bottom out until Thanksgiving, Black Friday or Cyber Monday. This year, however, retailers are banking on holiday discounts and are even offering price guarantees throughout the season.

To accommodate low inventory levels and possible shipping delays, Ramhold recommends that buyers start shopping early during the holidays and make purchases as soon as prices drop.
“Make a list of everything you’re looking for,” she said. “If you see rock bottom prices, get them.”
Here’s a look at some of the deals out there already:
- Walmart Black Friday starts on November 4th online and in-store with a three-part event called Black Friday Deals. Discounts include a 55 “Roku Smart TV for $ 148 and a Lenovo IdeaPad for $ 149.
- Amazon The Holiday Dash Deals event is already underway. The savings include a 30% discount on Lego sets, Pokemon and Hot Wheels as well as 40% discount on Levi’s and up to half off on Bissell vacuum cleaners.
- Best buy also posted some Black Friday prices for televisions, laptops, headphones, and home theater devices. In addition, the electronics retailer offers a price guarantee. If the price goes down before November 28th, you can refund the difference.
- target is expanding its Black Friday to a month-long sale with both in-store and online deals in November for home, electronics and clothing. And similar to Best Buy, buyers can get a price adjustment if the sale price continues to drop through December 24th. The goal is even a lower price at another retailer if it falls within a 14 day period.
“This is a great way to get people shopping now,” said Ramhold. “It’s going to be such a strange year – if I see something for a good price on November 1st, I’ll grab it right away.”
