The Country Caller shares an insight into some of the best deals on Amazon
With online sales on a surge across the globe, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) plans to kick-off its Black Friday deals from today, November 14. The sales day officially commences on November 25, but the e-commerce giant is slashing the prices on numerous products from today and plans a 13-day sales event.
As the Halloween hangover ends, shoppers around the world have set their sights on the biggest retail day of the year—Black Friday. Although, many people still rely on brick and mortar retailers, such as Wal-Mart Stores, Target Corporation, and Macy’s Inc., to receive substantial discounts on a huge array of products, the e-commerce companies now offer a cut-throat competition. Online sales are growing on a global level, and the e-commerce sales turned out to be higher than physical store sales in 2015. This year, a hike in Internet sales is expected as well.
Being the number one retailer in the world, Jeff Bezos’ company is considered to be the possible leader in the Black Friday sales. The Country Caller shares a few of the top-of-the-line sales discounts offered by Amazon on its products.
Buyers can avail a discount of $40 on Amazon Echo. This is a cloud based 360-degree smart speaker, which comes with 7 built-in microphones and can be controlled through voice commands. It is offered at $139.99 at the company’s website.
The Echo Dot is now priced at $39.99, after Amazon slashed $10 from the product’s regular price. Echo Dot is referred to as Echo’s mini-me, and is capable of doing everything a standard iteration of Echo does, but has just one small speaker.
The amazing Amazon Fire TV Stick is available at $29.99 and comes with the Alexa Voice Remote. The TV stick can be plugged into any HDTV to use world’s best streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora. The product is priced at $10 lesser than its regular retail price.
In order to compete with the online giant, the brick and mortar dominant, Wal-Mart and Target, have beefed up their e-commerce inventory to avoid running out of stock. The companies have also planned to announce and commence sales deals before the planned date. At their physical stores, the sales would commence at 6:00 PM on the Thanksgiving Day.
