The 12 best deals from Amazon’s early Black Friday event


Amazon has created another mini tentpole event to get ahead of the holiday rush. This time, the company may be more justified than usual, as retailers and shippers across the country are warning of COVID-related shipping delays for the holiday season.

This isn’t a massive event like Amazon Prime Day, but there are still a few good deals. Some offers will change daily, but savings are live now for core items like Amazon devices, data storage accessories, and Apple and Beats headphones.

You can also snag $100 off one of our favorite home office items, Flexispot’s V9 Desk Bike, or go the more traditional route with a solid standing desk for just $220. Last on our list is the TRX Go Suspension Trainer, a versatile piece of exercise equipment for any home gym. It’s a great piece, whether you’re a beginner starting with mostly bodyweight exercises or an advanced trainer wanting to level-up your workouts with more dynamic activity.
