Amazon Black Friday Deals: When it comes to Black Friday deals, no one does it bigger or better than Amazon.
There are two major dates on the online retailer giant’s calendar. The first of those has already passed in Prime Day. Now we’re eagerly counting down to the second: Black Friday 2019.
For many in the UK, Black Friday is virtually synonymous with Amazon. Divorced from the Thanksgiving customs that spawned this great day of sweeping deals in the US, we’ve come to associate Black Friday with the retailer that did more than most to drag it across the Atlantic.
In the unlikely event that you haven’t experienced it before, Black Friday on Amazon is a grand old affair. On this day each year, the entire website seems to be given over to countless deals of various stripes.
Why choose Amazon this Black Friday?
There are the featured Lightning Deals that appear in limited windows, and that tend to sell out in super-quick time. Then there are the deals that last the entirety of the extended Black Friday period – including the following Cyber Monday.
And of course, there are the headline deals on Amazon-branded devices – Kindles, Fire TV Sticks and Echo speakers – that will be as cheap as they’re ever likely to be. Or at least until Prime Day 2020, at any rate.
Amazon likes to build up to its Black Friday extravaganza with a couple of weeks of solid discounts. We’d recommend a note of caution here though, as the big stuff tends to be saved for the day itself. Still, you’ll find the odd cracker of a deal in these early days, and we’ll be bringing the best of them to you on this very page.
Being the e-commerce behemoth that it is, shopping with Amazon on Black Friday has its perks. Beyond an unmatched inventory of stuff, most of these advantages are related to having a Prime membership.
If you’re not yet a member of Amazon’s subscription service, we’d recommend preparing to join. The benefits of a Prime membership including free next-day delivery and a handful of exclusive deals.
Here’s a tip if you don’t want to pay the full Prime price: wait until early November to sign-up. That way you’ll be able to get the full benefits of Amazon’s 30-day free trial on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and will still be able to cancel before the first payment becomes due.
With that said, let’s run through a few pre-Black Friday deals that are already doing the rounds. Be sure to check back as we near the big day, as we predict that this is going to be the most active page on our website.

What is Amazon’s Returns Policy?
It’s important to note that whilst many of the items you can order through Amazon are fulfilled by the retailer giant itself, there are plenty of secondary sellers out there with differing policies for their goods. When making a purchase it’s worth taking a second to see exactly who you’re buying from and whether there are differing returns requirements and periods.
As for Amazon itself, all new, unopened goods still in a resalable condition can be sent back within 30 days of receipt of delivery. If you have purchased a used item, it must be returned in the condition it was received in, with no additional signs of wear and tear.
In terms of payment for sending your return, if you received an item that was faulty, you won’t have to pay an extra pennies to send your items back. For any products you wish to return that you have simply changed your mind about, you will have to pay, though any postage and packaging charge paid on the original order will be refunded alongside the cost of the product itself.
Amazon offers a number of methods for returning your items, including pre-paid Royal Mail labels, as well as local Collect+ stores, Amazon Lockers and more. It goes without saying, if you’re a Prime member, just like your delivery, returns are free.
Does Amazon offer a Student Discount?
The short answer is, yes. When it comes to Amazon’s Prime Membership scheme, students can benefit from 50% off its subscription charge and make the most of a ton of benefits on top of the ones available for the average Prime member.
Usually costing £79 a year or £7.99 a month, Prime Student comes to a monthly charge of just £3.99, or you can make an annual payment of £39 (an equivalent of £3.25 per month, so a far better deal). With this you’ll benefit from free one-day delivery, access to Prime Video and its somewhat limited Prime Music service (in comparison to the fully-fledged Amazon Music Unlimited).
Students can also enjoy Prime Reading, giving you lots of reading material for free across eBooks and magazines. On top of that, students exclusively get 10% off books like textbooks and other educational material. They can also save on clothing, as well as Amazon’s basic product range, stationery and gadgets like laptops to assist you with your studies.
Does Amazon offer a trade-in scheme?
Do you fancy trading in some old items to go towards your brand new purchase at Amazon? I’m afraid to say that you’re a couple of years too late to the party. Once upon a time, Amazon did have a trade-in scheme but the service was shut down in 2015. We can’t say for sure why the Amazon’s trade-in offer was ended, but it means you’ll have to go to the likes of eBay or John Lewis if you want to get some cash off your previously loved devices.
Does Amazon offer click and collect?
For those of us with jam-packed schedules, having a click and collect option for your Amazon order is an absolute Godsend, which is why I’m happy to report that Amazon does provide a click and collect service. More so than any other retailer out there however, Amazon’s click and collect scheme goes above and beyond by offering more options that anyone knows what to do with.
To kick things off, you’ve got the Amazon Lockers, arguably Amazon’s most popular form of click and collect. These lockers are simply giant Amazon-branded containers that can be found anywhere from inside local supermarkets to outside the nearest multiplex. All you need to do is approach the locker, input your unique collection code (which will be sent to you in an email) and voila, that eagerly awaited order is all yours.
If the nearest Amazon Locker is still a bit of trek for you then you’re in luck, Amazon has another trick up its sleeve with Amazon Counter. Through the Amazon Counter scheme, you can have your package delivered to a local post office or even a newsagent, which can be quite handy if you’re already planning to visit these establishments for other errands.
Amazon delivery options for Black Friday 2019
We may have well and truly exhausted all mentions of Amazon Prime, but it’s worth noting again that with an Amazon Prime subscription you can benefit from its One-Day Delivery service for free – receiving your goods the following day you ordered them. It’s ideal if you don’t want to wait around, or are in need of your purchases ASAP – for instance, if you forgot it was your mum’s birthday, just saying…
Of course, non-Prime members can benefit from the wonders of One-Day Delivery, but it will come at a cost.

Amazon Prime – What You Need to Know
As with any sale, quick delivery is still very much welcome when purchasing goods. You can get unlimited one-day delivery across millions of items, and in certain areas you can even get same day delivery and 1 or 2-hour delivery through Prime, for absolutely nothing for the first 30 days.
If you order a lot and are in a hurry, this alone can make Prime membership worthwhile. We’ve lost count the number of times we’ve had to rely on speedy delivery to get us out of a bind.
Then there’s Prime Video, which features streaming movies like John Wick 2 and Wonder Woman, alongside plenty of Amazon Originals exclusives including Jack Ryan, Good Omens and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. There’s something for everyone.
