Black Friday 2020 has started early this year with Amazon already launching some amazing deals online.

The online retail giant kickstarted the spending frenzy a month early today with their Black Friday deals.

The move by Amazon comes just a couple of weeks after Prime Day, which was delayed until mid-October from July due to Covid-19.

Shoppers can also take advantage of "Lightning Deals" which are available for a limited time. However, if you're a Prime member you will gain access to these 30 minutes early.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is one of the busiest days in the retail calendar and sees stores launch huge sales to encourage customer spending.

It originally started in the United States, but it has now become an annual event here in Scotland.

Black Friday also ties in perfectly for the start of the Christmas shopping season, meaning that customers have an opportunity to grab some early bargains.

When is Black Friday? 

Depsite Amazon's early sales, Black Friday will officially take place on Friday, November 27.

However, many major retailers tend to start their sales a few days beforehand.

Are you looking to start your Christmas shopping early? Then head here to see some of the great deals on offer.
