Last year, people were shocked when they learned that some stores were starting their Black Friday sales around the same time many families would be sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner. This year, things have gotten even crazier. Some of the Black Friday sales have already begun! Here is a quick look at some of the Black Friday sales that you can shop today.
Amazon started their “Countdown to Black Friday” sales on Saturday, November 1, 2014. Part of the sales include not one, but two “Deals of the Day” every day, through December 22, 2014.
People who use Twitter can now add the items they see on Twitter to their Amazon.com shopping cart by clicking on the product link in the Tweet. Amazon Prime members will get early access to several deals.
