Wait… is it Black Friday today?
With so many retailers kicking off their official Black Friday sales today, you could be forgiven for thinking it’s big day itself today.
Just to clear things up – Black Friday is officially happening Next Friday, November 25. It’s always the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, for the record.
Amazon just launched the first wave of its sale today and it will be added to those lists throughout the next week.
Basically, many retailers tend to offer their sales early these days for a variety of reasons, although it’s mainly because they want to give shoppers and delivery windows more time. Every year it seems to start earlier (much like preparations for Christmas…)

Cameras now. One of our favorite full-frame cameras just dropped to its lowest price ever during Black Friday sales. This Panasonic Lumix S5 price drop is likely to be one of this year’s pre-Christmas sales bargains for video makers.
We rate the Panasonic Lumix S5 as one of the best YouTube cameras you can buy, thanks to its blend of a compact form factor, 10-bit 4K/60p video proficiency, five-point image stabilization axes and an articulated screen. Its 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor also makes it invaluable for stills, and its body is also fully weatherproof.

Do you still use a manual toothbrush? Here’s what you need

That’s where the Oral-B Pro 1 comes in. It’s now just £25 from Amazon and does exactly what you need in an electric toothbrush, without all the faff of Bluetooth connectivity to a application and integrated LED screens. It’s simple, it’s straightforward and it includes a handy pressure sensor to make sure you’re brushing correctly. Bargain.
Electric blankets from €29.99
It’s definitely colder… If, like us, you’re still hesitant to turn on the heating, an electric blanket can be a worthwhile investment.
Amazon is offering plenty of discounts in its selection of electric blankets, with prices starting from just under £30 for a budget double electric blanket from Bedsure, to, uh, over £2,000 for ‘smart’ blankets. with all sorts of smart functionality.
Personally, we’ll stick with the £40-£60 mark – you can get something that does the job well in that range. But it depends on the size of your bed and the luxury you are looking for, of course. Here are some highlights.
6 of the best deals on Amazon this morning

Powerful budget smartphone gets a price cut
The excellent Google Pixel 6a is down to just £299 at Amazon. It’s £100 off the usual price and brings this excellent mid-range device down to its lowest price yet.

The combination of a powerful chip, a unique design and a great camera easily makes it one of the most well-rounded phones at this price.

It is also for sale on the Google Store for the same price.
