Black Friday 2020 may still be two days away but Amazon has already launched hundreds of deals for customers.

This year, the online retailer is hosting a 'Black Friday week' with a range of offers including its time-limited lightning deals as well as money off Amazon devices.

Last year, we rounded-up a long list of tips and tricks all shoppers could use for their next Amazon shop which could help save them money or get a better understanding if a deal is really just that.

With so many Black Friday deals available already this year and the pandemic leaving us all watching our money more closely, we've decided to republish our tips in the hope they may help anyone who missed them last time.

You can visit Amazon's website here.

1. Earn free Amazon vouchers

A website called Swagbucks allows users to complete simple tasks like watching videos and answering polls to win 'SB' points.

SB points can then be cashed in for Amazon vouchers.

If you earn 700 SB in the first 30 days of your free membership Swagbucks will reward you with a £10 bonus.

2. Don't be had - become a price tracking expert

Camelcamelcamel is free Amazon price tracker.

The site monitors millions of Amazon products and sends you an alert when the price drops.

The website also has a page dedicated to the biggest price drops in Amazon's history including price drops for LG televisions, iPhones and camera lenses.

3. Spot potential refunds

An annoying aspect of online shopping is the possibility of late deliveries.

But when your parcel arrives a day or two after it was expected - if Amazon is alerted - you could be compensated for the inconvenience.

Make sure you always email the company when you experience late deliveries or are unhappy with the service provided.

You could also use Paribus.

Paribus is a site that scans your confirmation emails and lets you know when you are owed a refund.

The company also tracks return windows and like Camelcamelcamel, will also monitors product prices.

4. Visit the Amazon Outlet first

If you're after a particular product - have a look for it in the Amazon Outlet section before you consider purchasing a full price product.

The outlet features overstocked items in their original conditions.

Deals have included 78% off computer accessories and 58% off baby products.

5. Check out Amazon Warehouse deals for a second-hand bargain

If you don't mind buying a used product - have a look at Amazon Warehouse.

Computing and electronic products are often advertised for at least £100 cheaper than their brand new equivalents.

6. Subscribe & Save - and then cancel if you want to

Regular Amazon shoppers can save up to 15% when receiving five or more subscriptions in a single delivery.

Prime members can get up to 20% off nappies and baby food when receiving five or more subscriptions in a single delivery.

7. Avoid shopping on your phone if you want a discount
