It’s that time of year again—rampant consumerism overtakes us before we’ve even finished with Thanksgiving dinner. Just in time, Amazon wants to make sure everyone knows that the site will feature good deals on everything from electronics to fashion.

Once again, Amazon is starting sales early. The company is offering new deals every five minutes starting Nov. 20 through Black Friday, Nov. 27. Then, beginning at midnight on Thanksgiving, people will be able to shop 10 “Deals of the Day” and up to 10 more on Black Friday. The company is also featuring their popular “Lightning Deals,” the entire week on “thousands of sought-after products per day.” You can find them on 

Amazon Prime members get a little bit of a head start on the rest of the shoppers—they’ll have access to Lightning Deals 30 minutes before anyone else. The company also wants to amp up its mobile shopping, so 150 Lightning Deals will only be available on the Amazon Mobile Shopping App, released daily from Thanksgiving through Dec. 9. 

So what are the goods Amazon is offering this year? You’ll be able to snag a good deal in pretty much every department. The company published a list of some of the things you’ll be able to save on.
