With Black Friday and Cyber Monday right around corner you may be surprised to learn that some of the best deals actually happen before Black Friday. In fact, many of the deals you find may be cheap and will also feel that way as well. Our partners at TechBargains have seen a trend where Black Friday Deals start earlier and earlier each year. It's not even November and yet there are Black Friday quality deals already leaking out. Don't wait for Black Friday when you can get the deals you want now and start playing with your gadgets on Thanksgiving instead of waiting in line for them.
Use code: DELLBIZ579. Get one of the best top selling deals on a desktop PC we've seen all year before it sells out. For under $600 you will find no better value than this redesigned sleek desktop with a powerful current gen Intel i7 processor, massive 16GB of RAM and a generous 2TB hard drive. You won't need to upgrade this at all and it even comes pre-installed with the Pro version of Windows 7 (and includes a Windows 10 Pro upgrade license). Act quickly as this always sells out every time we see it.
For $900 you are getting a 2016 Samsung with the three newest innovations in TVs: ultra sharp 4K resolution, vibrant colors from HDR support, and an immersive curved design display. The bonus $300 Dell gift card is enough for you purchase an PS4 or Xbox One S which is an incredible deal. You are essentially paying $600 for the TV which is a deal we don't think Black Friday will beat on a 2016 Samsung at the 55" size. This is a very popular deal and we don't expect this to last more than a few days.
Get one of the best value bundles we've seen on the Xbox One S. It includes two of the most popular current releases, a bonus controller which you would buy anyway and a $50 Dell gift card you can use towards more games. The new Xbox One S can play 4K Games, make use of vibrant HDR color support and has a sleek new slim & modern redesign.
Use code: SAVE35. Get more done with this ultra wide screen monitor. It has the resolution to fit two windows side by side easily and comes in a generous 29" screen size so you won't have to squint to make out the text. It includes a large $100 Dell gift card you can later use on a laptop, computer, or any other electronics Dell sells. This is over $100 less than elsewhere and when you include the gift card you are effectively paying under $200 for this huge monitor. At that price you are actually paying less than two separate full size monitors.
If you love tool and home improvement deals on Black Friday than this deal will be no exception. Basically you can get this portable car jump starter for 50% off. It has two excellent features that put it above others you can buy: a 120psi air compressor for pumping up tires and a USB charger for your smartphones and other devices. Not only will this thing be worth more than you paid for if you ever use it during the winter, you'll also save yourself time and money by conveniently keeping your tires inflated.
Everyone loves a cheap flash drive deal and this is no exception. In fact this is a fantastic deal as it is a name brand flash drive with a huge capacity for under $30. This makes a great little present and it easily has enough capacity to back up the largest iPhones. Best of all it's super compact design means you can leave it in your desktop or laptop without it ever protruding.
Use code: XL9DASD6. If you saw this deal in any store this would be an impulse buy. This product gets great reviews on Amazon and is one of their top selling back support pillows. If you spend any amount of time sitting infront of a computer or have a long daily drive, give your back some support and help prevent repetitive stress condition with this lumbar support pillow. Any good pillow runs over $30-$50 at your local office supply chain store. For half that price you can get an extremely well reviewed pillow and eliminate any uncertainty of getting something that will work at a price you won't regret.

14 Amazon shopping hacks
1. Cash in Those Gift Cards
You probably have Visa or MasterCard gift cards laying around with balances too low to shop with. Instead of leaving them in a drawer, transfer the balances (50 cents or above) to Amazon. It’s a wee bit tricky, but here’s how to do it: Proceed as if you were buying an Amazon gift card (or click on “Reload Your Balance”), choose “enter amount” instead of clicking on one of the set quantity boxes, and enter the gift card account number as the payment method. Bingo — you now have Amazon credit to shop with.

2. Choose No-Rush Shipping
If you’re a Prime member who doesn’t need your order lickety-split, forgo the free two-day shipping to score a credit toward a free digital download. You can rack up those credits and get that album you’ve had your eye on — free.

3. Don’t Ignore Warehouse Deals …
If you turn up your nose at the open-box and pre-owned items in Amazon’s Warehouse Deals section, you may be missing out on a great bargain. The discounts can be substantial, and you have 30 days to decide whether what you’ve received is a keeper.

4. … or Amazon’s Outlet
The Outlet is kind of like the clearance rack in your favorite store. It’s hit or miss, but these are items that Amazon is trying to clear out, so the discounts can be great (from 20% to 80%).
5. Enroll in Prime Student
If you’re in school, enjoy free two-day shipping for six months through the Prime Student program. If you want all the other benefits that come with Prime, you can then snag a Prime membership for 50% off after a six-month trial period.

6. Give to Charity
Why not give back while you shop? Courtesy of AmazonSmile, 0.5% of eligible Amazon Prime purchases can be donated to the participating charity or school of your choice.

7. Fill ‘Er Up
If you are not a Prime member, sometimes it’s a challenge to get your order to that $35 free shipping threshold without going way over. The Filler Item finder provides low-cost suggestions to help you get there.

8. Hold Onto Damaged Merchandise
If something you’ve ordered arrives in less-than-perfect condition, Amazon will replace it through their Online Returns Center and may not require you to send it back, especially if it’s inexpensive. And if the item is salvageable, you’ve scored! Let’s say you receive a bottle of household cleaner with a faulty pump. You can just hang on to it and switch the pump once you’ve finished the replacement.

9. Join Amazon Family
Expecting moms and parents who are also Amazon Prime members can get 20% off Subscribe & Save diapers with the Amazon Family program. There’s also a 15% discount on all baby registry gifts within 60 days of your due date.

10. Take Advantage of Late Deliveries
You usually get your packages on time with your Prime Membership, but if there’s a time that you don’t, let them know. It’s very likely they will offer you something, like a credit to your account or an extension of your Prime membership.

11. Try Subscribe & Save
Subscribe & Save users can receive up to 15% off their items and free shipping. I use Subscribe & Save for my toilet paper, paper towels and a few different vitamins, and the price is definitely right. Before subscribing, do your homework and compare prices with your price club and grocery/drug stores. I like how you can specify when you want items to ship, so your essentials arrive right when you need them. One less thing to think about!

12. Use Promo Codes & Coupons
Amazon does promo codes and coupons too. If you’re shopping for groceries on Amazon, be on the lookout for coupons and codes that can be applied to your purchase. They are typically on the main product page, and once you’ve clicked on them, they will appear in your cart.

13. Save an Extra 5%
You may not feel like you need another credit card — and you may not — but with the Amazon Store Card, Prime Members can get 5% back on all purchases. Like other store cards, the annual percentage rate (APR) is not fabulous, so if you go for this card, plan to pay it off every month. Otherwise, the 5% reward will be meaningless.
You may have noticed that Amazon has pretty fluid pricing. If you see that something you purchased sold by Amazon LLC has dropped in price, Amazon will usually honor the lower price by giving you a credit or gift card. Live chat seems to be a reliable way to get this done. A good way to keep track of Amazon pricing in general is with CamelCamelCamel price tracker.
