Amazon is once again expected to match other retailer's advertised Black Friday deals on short notice during the Black Friday 2011 season.
If I was responsible for creating Black Friday deals at Walmart and Best Buy I would hate Amazon. In the past years I have observed many times how Amazon would match or beat advertised Black Friday deals from other retailers. For instance check out our Black Friday report from November 4, 2010. Amazon matched deals from Walmart and Best Buy in the Amazon Black Friday Countdown sales promotion. I expect Amazon to do this again. This practice is great for shoppers as you got another source for the same product at the same low price. Usually the best deals are sold out extremely fast and therefore its great to have another source.
So keep in mind when you see an awesome Black Friday TV deal for instance on Best Buy this year that Amazon is likely offering the same deal.
I expect Amazon to run the Amazon Black Friday 2011 Countdown sales in the weeks ahead of the actual Black Friday. There should also be special Black Friday sales in product categories like video games, toys and electronics. Last year Amazon launched the Black Friday Countdown sale on October 29th. This means that Amazon could launch the Amazon Black Friday 2011 Countdown this Friday, October 28th.
Amazon will offer again Black Friday deals in all categories. As said above they like to match what other large retailers are putting out as Black Friday deals. You can read up on our Walmart Black Friday 2011 and Best Buy Black Friday 2011 deal predictions.
Amazon has already updated their Black Friday 2011 homepage. Right now Amazon lists several options on how you can stay up to date with the latest deals by subscribing to Facebook, Twitter and daily emails.
