How Amazon games the system (and how you might be able to game Amazon)
Way back in 2015, Amazon dropped an ad for Black Friday deals two days prior to the shopping frenzy. In 2016, it gave consumers a heads up on cyber deals a whole week early.
In 2017, we got a preview on the first day of Turkey Month: November 1st. Amazon kicked off Black Friday with crazy announcements that included:
- Free shipping on more than 100 million items. That’s not a typo: Literally millions of fun and functional thing, shipped to you at no additional cost.
- Amazon Key available to Prime members. Prime members could be among the first to use Amazon’s new service that delivers packages inside your home while you’re out.
- Voice shopping with Alexa. Say “yes” to beam an item to your doorstep. And no worries if Alexa doesn’t get it quite right: Products you order through Alexa are eligible for free returns.
- Harness a Lightning Deal. Priced to sell out fast, these time-sensitive discounts would pop up once every five minutes — and Prime members got 30-minute early access in 2017.
- Tune in to the Amazon App. Set updates and reminders for items you’re particularly interested in to get a nudge when a sale goes live. The app even includes a feature that lets you see thousands of items in specific spaces before you buy.
