Surprise! Amazon’s official Black Friday sale starts today, with new deals dropping on both Thursday and Friday — did someone say Beats headphones for nearly 60% off? — so keep checking back here for the latest. What should you be on the lookout for? Our experts say big-ticket items such as TVs and laptops will be the bread and butter of Black Friday 2022. Prime members will be specially poised to dig in: “Prime members have the advantage as their membership can provide early access to select Lightning Deals,” Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com, shared with Yahoo Life. “These are difficult to grab, as the very best ones sell out in an instant, so having an extra window of opportunity to shop is invaluable.” Speaking of which…time to get shopping!

In case you haven’t met this modern wonder, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter enables you to make just about any type of water drinkable. The straw contains a microfiltration membrane that removes 99.999999 percent of waterborne bacteria (including E. coli and salmonella), and 99.999 percent of waterborne parasites (including giardia and cryptosporidium). The filter also removes the smallest microplastics found in the environment and reduces turbidity down to 0.2 microns.
You use this like any other straw. Simply remove the cap, place one end into water you come across in nature, and suck. Said this globetrotter: “I’ve used these both in Iraq and Afghanistan. Works as advertised. Extremely reliable and genuinely safe-to-use filtration system.”

This one stands at 7.5 feet tall, but it’s available in alternate sizes (see below). “Usually being a person who buys cut live trees (as most fake trees don’t have the same realistic appeal), I spent a lot of time searching around for a good-looking tree,” shared an Amazon reviewer. “Once the tree came, I was highly impressed with the overall look and appeal…[and it] won over the hearts of my family and extended family too!”

Amazon’s Halo View fitness trackers — massively on sale for Black Friday — essentially take on the role of doctor, nurse, personal trainer, chef, life coach and spiritual guru, monitoring everything from your heart rate to your weight fluctuations to your sleep patterns. With a Halo View, you get a 360-degree, um, survey of your health, including real-time personal stats along with expert guidance for improving your well-being in every area of your life.
The handy gizmo tracks your physical activity, sleep quantity and quality, blood oxygen levels, BMI (the tracker scans your body to measure it!) and much more to record priceless data. It all appears in a health summary you can review at any time on a full-color OLED display — the real selling point — on the face of the band, which comes in lavender (shown), green or black. Personally, I’m feeling the lavender!

Are we still at risk of supply chain delays?
Any supply chain issues we’re seeing this year aren’t at the same level as those in 2021, but that doesn’t mean they’re totally gone. Retailers have had a year to plan to avoid the massive delivery delays we saw last year, so shopping Black Friday should leave time for stuff to arrive before the holidays. But that’s assuming no big surprises or snags.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and is historically a great time to get next-level deals on a range of must-have items.
When do Black Friday deals end?
Some deals will end at midnight on Friday, November 25th, but many will stretch through the weekend to Cyber Monday.
Does Black Friday have deals on everything?
Not everything is on sale for Black Friday, but a lot is. You’ll see impressive discounts on items such as air fryers, TVs, vacuums, furniture, sneakers, clothes, electric toothbrushes, makeup and so much more. If there’s an item you’ve been waiting to go on sale, it’s most likely to be marked down during Black Friday season.
