Everyone sound the alarm! This is not a drill — Amazon has officially announced that their special Black Friday deals will be starting on Monday.

Despite Black Friday not being for another 53 days, Amazon has decided to treat their customers a little early this year. The company announced on Monday that they have begun to roll out “Black-Friday-worthy deals” in an effort to jumpstart the holiday season.

That is especially great news for online shoppers. Experts have predicted that shipping and supply chain issues could be very prevalent during the end of this year and the holiday season. With that said, it may be best to get your shopping done sooner rather than later. That’s always been a good rule to live by but that goes even more so this year.

So if you are an Amazon shopper then get ready. They have announced that “deep discounts across every category” will be available to everyone beginning on Monday. Some of those categories include things like fashion, home goods, toys, and electronics, just to name a few. And for all of you Outsiders out there, make sure to check out their outdoor deals. If you need any ideas about what you might need (or want), check out this comprehensive list we put together last year.

Whenever you are ready to get started, you just have to visit a special webpage dedicated to Amazon’s Black Friday deals.

Apple Among Other Companies Who Will Discount Its Products for Black Friday

Have you been waiting for the newest iPhone or iPad to go on sale? Then you might just be in luck. It sounds like popular brands like Apple, KitchenAid, and Hasbro will also discount their products on certain days in the near future. Like Amazon, they will also be adding new deals every day throughout the next couple of months.

Speaking of other companies, fan-favorite retailer Target will be getting a headstart on the shopping season as well. Like their competitors, Target will be bringing back its “Deal Days” starting on October 10 for three days. You’ll be able to save on thousands of items at Target whether you’re shopping in-store or online.

As we mentioned above, this year really is not the year to wait until the last minute to get your holiday shopping done. Customers will likely be facing one of the most stressful shopping seasons in recent memory. The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed things down — and in some cases halted them altogether — in various parts of the world. For example, there have been factory closures in Vietnam that have forced brands like PacSun and Nike to send warnings about their limited supplies.

We’ll have more updates on some of the best deals that we come across. Make sure to stay tuned in right here on Outsider. Happy shopping!
