Black Friday Deals for Amazon
You might be wondering what kind of deals you can expect to get on Amazon during the upcoming Black Friday. Well, we can’t say for sure, but you could get some perspective by having a look at the deals of the past years.
For example, in 2017, Amazon offered up to 40% discounts on international brands. You may think that it is a bit low since some retailers can offer 60% and even bigger discounts. However, 40% off of the price of a product is a very good deal – hell, who wouldn’t want to get a product for almost half the price?
When it comes to product categories, discounts and great deals on tech have been quite prominent in recent years on Amazon. Sure, you could buy other products like furniture and whatnot for a good price as well, but tech has been experiencing much more demand.
And we think that the explanation for this is simple. Gadgets like smartphones or computer mice get obsolete in pretty much 1 – 2 years, depending on how demanding you are. This isn’t the case with home appliances, for example, since people tend to use them for several years.
So if you happen to be wanting to get a new smartphone or maybe a PC from Amazon, the upcoming Black Friday could be the right chance for you.
Black Friday Deals for Amazon + Cashbacks
Aside from discounts, some retailers on Amazon have offered cashbacks and discounts for coupons or promo codes during the past Black Fridays. With a coupon or a promo code, people were able to get about 20 – 30% off of the products they bought. Cashbacks have usually been much more modest though: a typical cashback for a product was 5 – 10%.
You might be thinking that you may be able to combine a coupon code with a cashback and a discount and get something for virtually no money, but that isn’t how things go. Retailers themselves decide what kind of deals you will be able to get from them. Most typically, you just get the chance to use one: either a discount, coupon/promo code, or cashback.
In 2017, Amazon also had a quiz on their app with six simple questions. If one answered them correctly, they would get the chance of winning Rs. 10.000 as Amazon Pay balance. This amount could be later used for shopping on Amazon. However, this quiz implied only 20 lucky winners, so you really needed to be fortunate to get those Rs. 10.000.
Still, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t give such a quiz a try. Amazon will most likely set up something like that on this year’s Black Friday, so be on the lookout for it.
What’s so nice about Amazon during Black Friday?
You know what’s particularly great about Amazon during Black Friday? You don’t need to go visit your local store to get the product you have been wishing for during the past year. In the US, Black Friday is a day off in many companies, which isn’t quite the case for India.
The point is that to buy something from Amazon, you just need to visit their website or use their mobile app. And besides, keeping track of the deals would be much easier since you can do that by just a couple of clicks.
Sounds pretty good, right?
Here is what you should do: think what you would want to get on Black Friday. And when the deals come, just keep an eye on it. You might want to make sure not to overshoot the waiting in hopes for a huge discount though: even a 10% discount is a great deal.
