That includes the Fire tablet, Kindle, Echo smart display and speakers. Amazon will also showcase a wide variety of affordable Black Friday TV deals as well as video games, gaming console bundles, laptops, tablets, wearable devices and among others.
Amazon’s Pre- and Black Friday 2018 Sales Time and Duration
Amazon is expected to begin its pre-Black Friday sales as early as November 1st.

The actual Black Friday sales will commence on Thanksgiving, and its discounts and deals will be available on the most-sought products throughout the Cyber Monday.
Meanwhile the markdown prices on Amazon-branded electronics and other deals could be rolled out as early as a week ahead of Thanksgiving week. Many of the heavily discounted tech deals will not have definite start times, so customers will have monitor Amazon’s online store throughout Black Friday. Amazon Prime members will be able know the start times of the deals and also get early access on “Lightning Deals.”
