What’s the difference between Amazon Black Friday deals and Amazon Cyber Monday deals?
With Amazon Black Friday deals already here, the early holiday sales double as both Black Friday discounts and pre-Cyber Monday deals. While, technically, Amazon Cyber Monday deals roll out as soon as Black Friday ends on November 26, we expect to see significant overlap in Amazon’s roundup of Black Friday and Cyber Monday markdowns. Both waves of holiday deals will be exclusively available online, so be sure to secure your Amazon Prime membership ahead of time to enjoy fast and free shipping.

Yes. During the holiday shopping season, Amazon Prime members have early access to select holiday deals and can even earn up to 25% back on select Amazon purchases with an Amazon Prime Card and an eligible Prime membership. Meanwhile, Prime members can get their holiday gifts quicker with access to free and fast shipping, with millions of must-have items available for same-day delivery. If you aren’t already an Amazon Prime member, don’t worry—there’s still plenty of time to sign up.
When does the Amazon Black Friday sale end?
The Amazon Black Friday sale ends on November 26, with Amazon Cyber Monday deals rolling out the following day, on November 27. Keep in mind, however, that many of the markdowns included in the Amazon Black Friday sale are one-day deals.
Following the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend of sales, we expect to see discounts on select items throughout the holiday season—however, with shipping delays and stock shortages expected, we recommend shopping early to ensure you get all the holiday gifts on your list this year.
