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. Last year, it gave consumers a heads up on cyber deals a whole week early.
This year, we’re getting a preview on the first day of Turkey Month: November 1st. Amazon kicks off Black Friday with bonkers announcements that include:
- Free shipping on more than 100 million items. That’s not a typo: Literally millions of fun and functional things can be shipped to you at no additional cost.
- Amazon Key available to Prime 11/8. If you’re a Prime member, 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 don’t get it quite right: Products you order through Alexa are eligible for free returns.
- Take up orders at a Treasure Truck. In select cities, you can order exclusive items through the app for pickup truckside all season long.
- Harness a Lightning Deal. Priced to sell out fast, these time-sensitive discounts pop up once every five minutes — and Prime members get 30-minute early access this year.
- 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. This year, the app includes an AR feature for you to see thousands of items in specific spaces before you buy.
Amazon has the upper hand over in-store retailers because it’s literally open year-round — even as you stuff yourself silly on Thanksgiving.
