Good news! There is now a pattern of early deals emerging before annual sales like Prime Day and Black Friday. This translates to more savings opportunities with increased time to strategize purchases.
Previously, all of the saving happened on a single day, but now there are often deals leading up to, and for as long as a week after – this is particularly true for Cyber Monday. Whether you use Amazon’s early deals to get ahead on gift buying or everyday essentials, they are a great arrow in your money-saving quiver.
Get Ahead on Gift Purchases
Le Creuset Enameled Dutch Oven (5.25 qt.)
Anyone who knows Le Cruset knows that they NEVER go on sale. Yet, here we are with the perfect enameled Dutch oven showing a drastic price drop. Let cozy soup and fresh bread season begin.
An affordable Vita-Mix?! We thought the day would never come. Vitamix is the apogee of blender technology: it’s tough as nails, cuts preparation time, has a handier-than-handy tamper tool, uses vortex technology, and is easy to clean. This is a great gift for the entire household, friends, and family.
We are lucky that Cyber Monday deals also include audio gear. When JBL released the Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker, it was a game changer. This clippable JBL is half the size without giving up too much fidelity, and it’s half the price. Try clipping it up on the porch to get a party vibe going, or on your handlebars while biking around; you can even bring it into the shower.
These are the end-all headphones for music lovers and audiophiles. Protip: replace the ear pads with a personalized color to stand out.
Frame TVs are the future. They add a feeling of uncluttered balance to any room and enhance aesthetics according to the type of art featured. The right art can even make small rooms look bigger, and with a digital frame TV, you don’t have to commit to a single piece of art.
Do you have grandparents with shelves packed beyond their capacity with framed pictures? To add a poignant touch, pre-load the digital frame with images of their grandkids, fond memories of yesterdecade, and pleasant scenery. Then, set it to auto-rotate. With 16 GB of storage, you don’t have to worry about running out of space.
Fuzzy winter slippers are a home essential and also make a great gift. The ULTRAIDEAS are sturdy, built with memory foam and anti-skid soles, and come in many different colors. If you don’t quite like this style, the Landeers are a bit more ubiquitous without looking old-fashioned or skimping on the fuzziness or memory foam. Decadent fuzzy slippers also make a great side gift for kids or an office gift for a co-worker.
Comfy cardigans are back in fashion for adults and teens alike. The Zesica cardigan is the perfect balance of light, warm, and chunky. Letting it hang open allows for fashionable layering as well. With 35 different color and pattern options, it is easy to find one to suit the taste of the most picky dresser in your life.
Deals on Essential Items
Sleep Hack Items
Sleep is essential to feeling good during the shorter days of winter. Bedding is one of those items that does not seem essential –perhaps this is because we tend ignore worn-out sheets and flat pillows except when we’re in bed. Eventually, the time will come when you have to buy new bedding, and rather than spending an arm and a leg when money is tight, take advantage of these early deals now. Good sleep equals good mental health.

Again, when lightbulbs burn out, there is no choice but buy more immediately. That’s why it is essential to buy them ahead of time when they are on sale. It’s best to pay slightly more during a sale for increased durability and smart capabilities too. If you want to add color to your life, try these Wi-Fi-enabled, multi-color bulbs for the same price.
Another great way to enhance sleep is to set up a charging station away from your bed. This wall charger has nine outlets in total including USB, USB-C, and 3-prong. It is also highly affordable.
Ring doorbells welcome a sense of safety whether you are home or away. They allow you to track package drop-offs and communicate with your friends when you are gone or just getting out of the shower. They are super easy to install and can also double as a pet cam.
Strategize to Save
One of the best money-saving strategies is to go to the Black Friday Early Deals section and use the filters on the left side of the browsing window to fine-tune your search for gifts and essentials. It’s even possible to order all your gifts and household items in a single order which can trigger consolidated shipping benefits. Or, if you have a bit more time, check back for the entire week to catch all the new deals added daily. Happy saving!
