Remember when Black Friday actually took place on Black Friday? Not this year. Kids across the nation were still deep in the clutches of Halloween-candy-induced sugar comas when Amazon launched its first wave of Black Friday deals, and this is only the beginning.

The online retail giant is running deals, discounts, and other promotions every day in the weeks leading up to the major sale, which is great for those of us who like to stay ahead of the game and get our holiday shopping done early. Amazon has even put together convenient buying guides and even a Gift Finder to help you get the perfect thing for everyone on your list.
