Retailers like Macy’s and Kohl’s may be burning the midnight oil this year to lure consumers into their stores on Black Friday, but Amazon.com isn’t taking that lying down.Not to be outdone by its brick-and-mortar competitors, the mega e-retailer has launched its own Black Friday deals department, according to a company press release. Amazon is offering steep discounts on everything from electronics to jewels now through Nov. 25.
There’s no telling how great these deals are compared to the regular savings Amazon shoppers see on a daily basis, but it’s a nice marketing tool to take advantage of all the Black Friday buzz leading up to Thanksgiving.
Among its offerings, you can nab sweet deals on EA video games (buy two, get one free) and pick up the complete series DVD collection of “Arrested Development,” which the site has marked down from $90 to $28.99. Couch potatoes, rejoice!
Black Friday deal previews aren’t anything new to consumers. There are whole sites dedicated to tracking down sales ads in advance of the “holiday,” and it looks like no one is waiting till Nov. 25 to roll out their best offerings.
