It’s that time of the season over at Amazon!

Since November 1, Amazon has been featuring thousands of deals in their Black Friday deals store, which was supposed to act as the countdown to Black Friday week. Basically, it just turned into Black Friday-type deals and savings all month long.

In a press release on Wednesday, Nov. 18, Amazon announced their plan for their eight days of Black Friday week deals, according to a report from Yahoo and BGR.

Beginning on Friday, Nov. 20, Amazon will kick off their official Black Friday sales. Those sales will last through Black Friday, Nov. 27.

The crazy part of the announcement is that Amazon will be offering deals every five minutes leading into Black Friday. While it’s convenient, it does take some research to find out when the best deals will be offered and how long they will be available.

Some of Amazon’s Black Friday deals will only be offered through the Amazon app. And, as always, Amazon Prime subscribers will get access to “lightning deals,” which gives them the opportunity to access select deals 30 minutes before the rest of Amazon’s customers, according to Yahoo.

To help out customers, on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, Amazon will publish their “Top 10 Most Coveted Deals,” according to the report.
