Amazon’s early Black Friday savings are officially here. Following the retailer’s Prime Early Access Sale last month — a second Prime Day-like event that gave Prime members special deals ahead of the holiday shopping season — Amazon now joins other major retailers like Walmart, Target and Best Buy in releasing early Black Friday deals.
