Here's How to Shop Amazon's Cyber Monday Deals Early
Amazon doesn’t kid around when it comes to Black Friday deals. The online retail giant kicked off their version of the super sales event weeks before actual Black Friday starts on Nov. 23 (and yes, those early Black Friday deals are happening right now). And from the looks of it, Amazon Cyber Monday 2018 will be following suit with its own early start date and a multitude of can’t-miss deals.
Scroll through for all the details on when Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals Week 2018 is starting, what deals will most likely be offered, and how being a Prime member gets you access to the best deals first.
Amazon Cyber Monday Deals 2018: What to Expect
We’re still waiting on the official word from Amazon about when Cyber Monday will start this year. But we can make an educated guess by looking at what happened last year.
Shoppers had access to Amazon’s Cyber Monday page starting as early as Saturday, Nov. 25 and going through the following week. Yes, you read that right. Cyber Monday wasn’t a 24-hour event. It was a week-long sales extravaganza.
Check back here for an update on when Amazon Cyber Monday Deals Week is starting. And in the meantime, be sure to get in on those pre-Black Friday deals.
Do I Need to be an Amazon Prime Member to Shop Cyber Monday Deals?
Short answer: No. Long answer: Still no, but you’d get exclusive perks that are well worth the subscription. In addition to Amazon’s everyday offering of free two-day shipping on millions of items on Amazon, a discount at Whole Foods, access to popular movies and TV shows with Prime Video, and so much more, Prime members will also get early access to exclusive deals this Cyber Monday Deals Week event.
Last year, Prime members could shop early discounts with their Alexa-enabled devices by just simply asking, “Alexa, what are your deals?” Plus, they got to shop Lightning Deals 30 minutes before everyone else. So if you’ve been thinking about joining Amazon’s Prime subscription (or just want to try it out for this holiday shopping season — you can start a 30-day free trial), now is the perfect time.
What Are the Amazon Cyber Monday Deals?
We can say with confidence that some Cyber Monday deals will likely be repeats from Black Friday — including steep discounts on popular Amazon products, such as the Echo, Kindle Paperwhite, and Fire HD tablet — but with even lower prices.
Amazon, unfortunately, doesn’t have an official Cyber Monday ad, but we’re keeping an eye on what’s to come, so be sure to check back here for the best Amazon Cyber Monday deals.
