First things first: to really take advantage of all of Amazon’s holiday sales, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. But guess what — you don’t need to pay a dime to subscribe to Prime right now. Simply head to this special page on Amazon’s website and you’ll be able to sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. All of your eligible purchases will ship for free in two days and then if you don’t like it, you can always cancel after the holidays without being charged.

With that out of the way, let’s get to the deals.

Amazon’s 8 Days to Black Friday sale is exactly what you think it would be. For eight days beginning today, the retailer is offering new sales each day and there are plenty of crazy deals to enjoy. Here’s the kicker: Amazon isn’t just posting a static set of sales every day, it will launch new Lightning sales as frequently as every five minutes!

Here’s the page you need to visit to check out all of Amazon’s current sales.

Also of note, if you look at all of Amazon’s Lightning Deals you’ll see a new button labeled “Watch this deal” beneath sales that aren’t yet live. This button will let you add the item to your watch list and you’ll be notified as soon as the sale goes live. There’s nothing worse than missing out on a great Lightning Deal, so this will help ensure that doesn’t happen.
