Holidays Come Early – Amazon’s One Day Sales

Sears got into the holiday spirit months ago with Sears Layaway and Kmart Layaway.

Driving into Palo Alto this morning at 6am, I noticed the holiday lights wrapping the trees on University Avenue.

Since getting into retail, I’ve always thought of the holiday shopping season starting November 1st, the day after Halloween. But as everyone has been reporting, the holidays arrived early this year.

Now Amazon is getting into the game with ‘Countdown to Black Friday’ sales. Not sure how many categories are running this promotion, but the first I’ve been notified of is in the Electronics category. This splash page should work for everyone. Today’s inaugural deal is the Toshiba 55-Inch 1080p LED HDTV with Net TV for $1199.99, a 50% markdown.

From Amazon:

We’re counting down the weeks until Black Friday with spectacular deals every Friday, starting October 29 and running weekly through November 19. Check back every Friday to find fantastic prices on select electronics, video games, and more. And all of these hot deals relate to a theme, including the Deal of the Day and Lightning Deals. Bookmark this page and come back each week to see how you’ll save on items that help you “Connect,” “Play,” “Watch,” and “Listen.” All deals are good while supplies last, so don’t delay!
