Online Retailing giant Amazon has launched its first Black Friday Deals week outside the UK in the run up to the Thanksgiving week, with more than 300 deals on offer.
Amongst deals that will matter to us include 50 per cent off Sony TVs and Blu-ray players, over 60 per cent off Microsoft Xbox consoles, Flip Mino HD camcorders and Nintendo Wii consoles.
We will be following closely the Sony discounts since users could potentially add another 17.5 per cent discount thanks to Sony's VAT cashback scheme currently on offer. At the time of writing, deals are trickling through with tech related ones coming later during the day.
This first Black Friday from Amazon will also provide with the perfec opportunity to test price match promises from a number of vendors like Bestbuy or DSGi. Expect some of them to follow suit with their own cut-throat sales over that same period.
