Last year, there was an entire week of Black Friday deals, but it seems that in 2012 there will be nearly a month of them.
Starting today (11/5), there are daily lightning deal sales in several categories: home, electronics, toys, clothing, shoes and more.
Today, for example, there will be lightning deals on everything from Stretch Island Fruit Leather to the Schleich Knight’s Castle and Megabloks Build’n Go Wagon Classic to Brooklyn Beans Variety Pack of k-Cups.
Remember, lightning deals are good for two hours, or while supplies last. The “hotter” the deal, the faster these go.
I will try to post about the best deals, but as I’m not chained to my computer, I’ll miss out on a few. (And yes, my kids might argue with whether or not I’m chained ;-))
If you want to stay up on the latest lightning deals, I recommend that you bookmark this page – and at least check it out in the morning, to know if there’s something that you will want or need going on sale throughout the day.
The final price only gets listed once the deal goes live, but at least then you’ll know if it’s worth checking back in.
Finally, if you don’t yet have an Amazon Prime Membership, but have been strongly considering it, this is a great time to start. We adore our membership and definitely get our money’s worth – as I’ve posted about before. We renewed last month without hesitation (even though I know $79 sounds like a lot.)
If you’re still on the fence, , you can register for a free trial to Amazon Mom right now – which gives you access to the free two-day shipping benefits of Prime. Note that you can’t register again if you’ve already taken advantage of a free trial offer.
