A Head Start on Black Friday Deals

kindle_fireIf you like to shop online and are ready to get a head start on your holiday shopping, Amazon has already started their Black Friday deals¬†sales. New lightning deals are now appearing every 10 minutes. You never know what you are going to see in these sales- last year I saw a trolling motor for a boat as a lightning deal! ūüôā

There are also some very good deals in electronics, including a Kindle Fire HDX 7″, HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 64 GB – Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation – 3rd)¬†for only $219 and a Certified Refurbished Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 4G LTE Wireless, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 64 GB – Includes Special Offers¬†for only $199. (That one is pretty tempting!) The 32 GB version is only $179.

There are also deals on tablets, desktops, musical equipment, audio and fitness gear, so there’s a lot to choose from.

This year, the Brick and Mortar stores will be starting deals as early as Thanksgiving night for the Black Friday sales. What do you think of the idea?
