Halfway to Black Friday - Only 6 Months To Go!


Today marks the halfway point of the countdown to Black Friday 2024. We're exactly 6 months away from November 29th which is the date Black Friday falls on this year (which also happens to be the latest possible date).

Of course Black Friday itself has become much less important in recent years as sales are starting earlier and are spread over a longer period. While you wait, here's an article with some general tips for scoring holiday shopping deals.

We'll be be "officially" starting our Black Friday and holiday shopping coverage in the fall but we'll continue to post any relevant updates here in the meantime.

History of Black Friday, Cyber Monday & More


While you have a few months to pass the time until the sales start, why not do some reading about the history of these big days? First, check out the history of Black Friday and learn about the birth of Black Friday as a term in Philadelphia.

Next, the history of Cyber Monday is more recent with early years being known for lackluster sales. The history of Amazon's Prime Day is also more contemporary and after a few early rocky years it has become a big sale period each year.

Finally, as this is GottaDEAL's 20th year of existence, check out a brief history of GottaDEAL and join us as we celebrate two decades of deals over the next year. We're proud to be the oldest independent deal site still around.

Save on Amazon Holiday Deals with Credit Card Offers


Amazon partners with several credit card providers to offer discounts when you use a minimum number of reward points to pay for (at least part of) your purchase. Note that these offers are targeted, so not everyone will be eligible, but it's worth checking to see if you have the offer on your account.
  • American Express: Check this page to see if you're targeted. Offers can vary from 10% to 50% off. Common offers are 10% off up to $10 and 15% off up to $15.
  • Chase: Check this page to see if you're targeted. Again, current offers vary. Several reports of 50% off, up to $15 in savings but your offer may be different.
  • Discover: Check this page to see if you're targeted. The offers vary. Some reported offers are $10 off $50, 30% off up to $30 and 40% off up to $30.
  • U.S. Bank: Check this page to see if you're targeted. Once again, the offers for those targeted will vary. Maximum discount seems to be 40% for this one.
To be eligible for these offers, you need to link your credit card rewards account to your Amazon account for each card. You can do that on the Shop with Points page. If you've just linked your account, wait 1-2 days and try the links again to see if you get an offer.
