If you're anything like us, you love Black Friday for its sales, but could do without the Hunger Games–like mall environment. After a Thanksgiving feast—followed by late night leftovers, natch—camping outside the mall in the wee hours of the morning just so your holiday gifts don't break the bank is hardly ideal. Which is why digital-age perks like Amazon Black Friday are more our speed—and may be yours after you get a glimpse at the exclusive deals you can bag from the comfort of your stretchy pants and couch.
Amazon just released a sneak peek at its Black Friday deals, and this year it's featuring more than 30 Deals of the Day and thousands of Lightning Deals throughout the duration of what the retailer is calling the "Turkey 5"—five days of deals starting at midnight (Pacific Time) on Thanksgiving and continuing through Cyber Monday.
Amazon is also promoting alternative ways to shop come Black Friday: On the Amazon App, you will receive the Watch a Deal alerts on all hot holiday products. You can also shop from your Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot. "Voice Shoppers" can ask Alexa—the electronic personal assistant—to shop select Black Friday deals, starting as early as 5pm PT, Wednesday, Nov. 22.
Plus: All Amazon customers can choose from more than one hundred million items that are eligible for free shipping this holiday season.
Here's a list of some of the goodies you can find on various dates and times between Nov. 17 and Nov. 24 (Black Friday), while supplies last:
Music, TV, Movies & Books
Sports & Outdoors
Here's to mashed potatoes and couch potatoes, because Thanksgiving wouldn't be one without the other—even on Black Friday.
