You don’t need an Amazon Prime subscription to shop but the free 30-day trial gives access to exclusive deals.

Amazon will officially launch Black Friday Deal Week in just a few hours. From midnight (EST) Friday November 17 the online retailer will offer huge savings on sales items storewide, plus free shipping for Prime members.

A range of different items will be discounted each day in the lead up to Black Friday, which means not all your stocking stuffers will be on sale at the same time, so you’ll just have to keep checking back for daily deals.

These deals will be filtered into one location, making it easy to search by department, deal type, discount, price, availability, customer review, or see what Amazon Prime offers its members.

It might be handy to download Amazon’s mobile app, so you don’t need to sit in front of the computer all day.

You don’t need an Amazon Prime subscription to shop the Black Friday sales, however, members often receive early or exclusive access to deals and discounts. Sign up for a free 30-day trial before adding items to your cart.

Business owners can now take advantage of Amazon Business Prime Shipping, as the global e-commerce company offers free unlimited two-day shipping for customers with an Amazon Business account.

Over 100 Whole Food Market stores across the United States now sell Amazon devices, such as the Amazon Echo, Fire TV, Kindle e-readers and more, which will be on sale during the week leading up to Black Friday.

Amazon Fresh users in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia learned last week that the grocery delivery service would be suspended in their area.

Amazon is a multi-million dollar business, employing over 40,000 people at its Seattle headquarters. Earlier this year, the retailer announced it would build a second headquarters somewhere in North America.
