INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Amazon is getting a jump on Black Friday deals. They say the savings will start this Friday.

According to Amazon, they will release new deals every five minutes for eight consecutive days on their website. Customers will also be able to shop “Lightning Deals” on thousands of products.

Some of the deals you can look forward to are, TVs, Kindles, fitness trackers, computers, tablets and phones. Amazon will also have deals on toys, clothing for the family, home décor and beauty products.

Amazon is not the first retailer to use this similar strategy. Last month Target and Wal-Mart announced they would offer holiday discounts throughout November.

Best Buy and Sam’s Club have also held “pre-Black Friday” events this month.
