With just hours to go until the big event, Amazon’s Black Friday sale is full swing.

We’ve already seen great offers from the retailer on products inlcuding Apple Airpods and the Nintendo Switch, to name a few.

It has also rolled out deals on some of its own products, including the Echo Dot and Fire tablet and stick devices, and now impressive discounts on other sought after items, like the Apple Watch Series 5 which we’ve listed here.

Follow live: Latest early Black Friday deals

The retailer truly set the precedent for the annual event this year, as it kicked off its early bird deals a whole month ahead of the main event.

In previous years, retailers often started their early deals the week before Black Friday, but some have followed Amazon’s lead and begun sales far earlier this year, including Debenhams, John Lewis & Partners, Very, Currys PC World, AO, and Boots.

Rather than you spending hours trawling through products, we’ll be listing the best discounts on offer from now and up to the main event, so you can easily and quickly find the best deals.

Read on for our top pick of the best Amazon Black Friday Week deals, from Apple AirPods to Shark vacuum cleaners.

Our IndyBest team hand-picks every deal we feature. We may earn some commission from the links in this article, but our selections have been made independently and without bias. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.

The best Amazon Black Friday deals

Apple AirPods with charging case: Was £159, now £124.49

Apple
Apple

Enjoy an impressive 22 per cent off the second generation AirPods in Amazon’s early Black Friday sale. David Phelan, our technology critic, rated these highly in his IndyBest review of the best wireless earbuds, saying: “Apple’s distinctive earbuds have been massively successful since they first launched and they remain even now some of the very lightest in-ears you can find. The design is unchanged since day one, but improved electronics inside mean that you can say, ‘Hey, Siri’ to invoke the virtual assistant without even touching the earbuds."

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 12.3in Tablet: Was £899, now £659

Microsoft
Microsoft

Save a huge £240 on this Surface tablet in Amazon’s sale. Landing a spot in our review of the best tablets of 2020, our technology critic, David Phelan, said: Although this is a tablet, it becomes a full-on laptop if you attach an optional keyboard cover. One design trademark of the surface series is the kickstand which folds out of the back and adjusts to hold the tablet in the various positions, near-upright for viewing video or almost flat to write on with the optional stylus.”

“The display looks great and the range of apps is dizzyingly large. With the keyboard attached it becomes a lightweight, powerful laptop that’s easy to carry and use,” he added. At this price, we imagine it will sell out fast.

We could all do with a bit of noise-cancelling technology, especially while working from home, and this pair of headphones is said to rival Apple’s AirPods Pro. These are the sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, which we put head to head with Apple’s latest pair. In the review, our technology critic said they had the edge on their competitor “in terms of a secure but comfortable fit” and the “battery life is much better for the earbuds alone and this could easily be a deal-breaker for many”. We think these would make a great gift this Christmas, and with 40 per cent off now’s the time to tick it off you list.

Apple
Apple

Apple products don’t come cheap and the brand is notorious for not participating in many sales, so although this isn’t a huge saving, it’s a worthy inclusion for the latest 2020 Pro model. Our technology critic, David Phelan, explained in his review the difference between the 2020 iPad Pro and the previous version: “The biggest changes are the new LiDAR scanner and the improved cameras which are designed to turn the iPad Pro into a portable movie studio, say, rather than a better way to take photographs.” With a two-year guarantee, you can also claim up to £150 when trading in an old iPad with John Lewis. The larger 12.9in model is also on sale, reduced from £1069 to £990.

We loved it too, in our round-up of the best new gins where No.3 London Dry Gin was crowned our Best Buy, our reviewer said: “The new hexagonal design reflects each of the six botanicals in the recipe – upfront juniper, sweet Spanish orange peel, zingy grapefruit peel, earthy angelica root, spicy coriander and warming cardamom seeds. Created by Berry Bros & Rudd – (aka, the UK’s oldest wine and spirits merchant), No.3 is quite simply the perfect example of a London dry gin – try it in a dry martini or a classic G&T.”

They said: “It can do all the Alexa-related stuff of the most advanced speakers such as answering questions, turning smart home gadgets on or off, and so on. Radio, podcasts and audio books all sound good, with clear vocals. Echo devices can make audio calls to one another and these work well, too.” The latest fourth generation Echo Dot is also on sale, reduced from £49.99 to £28.99.

The 5.5in smart display allows you to manage your calendar, listen to the radio, check the news or even watch films. Phelan added: “It is also superbly sized for use as a bedroom alarm clock and Amazon has installed a physical switch that slides a cover in front of the lens for absolute certainty of privacy.

When is Black Friday 2020?

This year, Black Friday will fall on Friday 27 November, and the event will run over the weekend until 30 November, which is Cyber Monday.

We’re expecting the sale to last far longer than a few days though. Last year’s event ran for a whopping two weeks, and we’re expecting other retailers to follow Amazon and begin deals earlier than ever before, to try and make up for some lost revenue earlier in the year.

How to get the best Black Friday deals at Amazon?

Here at IndyBest, we’ll be rounding up the best deals ahead of the sale, to save you a mammoth task of scrolling through every page on-site. Just make soiree to check back here regularly for updates and details on all the bargains.

To avoid getting overwhelmed, we’d suggest making a shopping list before Black Friday kicks off, to ensure you shop for what you need and avoid making last-minute impulse buys you may later regret.

If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, we’d recommend subscribing too, which costs £7.99 a month or £79 a year, as the perks include same-day delivery and access to Amazon Video, Amazon Music and 800,000 free ebooks.

When signing up, you can enjoy a 30-day free trial to get to grips with it, and is ideal if you’re ordering items you don’t want to wait weeks to be delivered.

How long will the discounts last?

Last year was Amazon’s biggest Black Friday sale in its history, spanning 15 days, as it ran its pre-sale in the run up to the weekend. Of course, Amazon upped the ante again this year by beginning its sale a whole month early.

Typically the event runs until Cyber Monday so customers will have plenty of time to bag the best deals possible.

It’s not just fashion that’s getting involved however, read our round-up of all the brands participating in this year’s Black Friday sale, whether you’re on the lookout for kitchen gadgets, a new TV or a spot of early Christmas shopping.
