Amazon Black Friday deals 2021 — sales to expect

Shoppers are getting a preview of 2021’s Amazon Black Friday deals this week. The online giant is kicking the week off with a series of deals called the Amazon Epic Daily Deals event. These holiday-themed deals are made for consumers who want to get a jump start on their holiday shopping. 

Keep in mind, these aren’t Black Friday deals per se, but they’re a small window into what we can expect from Amazon Black Friday deals later next month. While not all of this week’s deals are truly “epic,” there are some deals worth noting. So we’re taking a look at last year’s best Amazon Black Friday deals along with some of the best Amazon deals you can get now.
