Black Friday isn't for another 25 days, but nobody told Amazon, because it's already started offering up some seriously good deals.
It's all part of Amazon's Countdown to Black Friday event. It looks like every day through November 27th, you'll find new deals through this promotion. If today is any indication of the quality of the products and the savings, we're all in for a treat.
Headlining today's sale is a really good deal on Motorola's second-generation Moto X smartphone. This is the phone that I use myself, and I love it. You can check out the specs on our smartphone comparison chart, and also read this article about the phone.
Today only, you'll be able to pick up an unlocked, off-contract Moto X for $199.99. That's exactly $100 off the full sticker price of the phone. Keep in mind: This phone will only work with GSM carriers or SIM cards. That means T-Mobile and AT&T, but not Verizon, Sprint, Boost or Virgin, which are CDMA carriers.
On today's Deal of the Day, you'll also be able to get half-off on Saucony shoes, Metal Gear Solid V for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, a Schlage keypad deadbolt lock and a non-contact digital infrared thermometer.
There are also a bunch of "Lightning Deals," which last for a couple of hours or until supplies run out. These are for everything from gadgets to toys to vitamins and more. If you scroll further down the page, you'll find more Countdown to Black Friday featured deals.
You're looking at $200 savings on cameras, TVs starting at $99, and much more. These deals don't seem to have an expiration date attached, but you never know when supplies will run out, the price will go back up or the price will drop even further.
Keep checking back at our Happening Now page over the next weeks and months. We'll be highlighting the best deals and pointing out any must-have products that pop up. Also, if you haven't subscribed to our News of the Day Newsletter, you should. It's a great way to stay on top of limited-time deals like these.
