Walmart Black Friday Ad Nov 11 – 15, 2020

Ok so here is the 2nd Walmart Black Friday Ad. Again, you can see it doesn’t actually encompass the real Black Friday so I can only guess or assume there will be, yet another, Walmart Black Friday ad for the actual Black Friday week.

Amazon Offering Holiday Gift Guides Ahead of Prime Day

Are you planning on checking out Prime Day? I’m an early shopper so I’m hoping to find a few deals on some holiday gifts. I guess I’m not the only one thinking about it. This year Amazon is offering holiday gift guides ahead of Prime Day.

Small Business Gift Guide
This Prime Day and holiday season, connect with local small businesses through Amazon’s Small Business Gift Guide, featuring unique items from toys, home decor, jewelry, and more from U.S.-based small businesses. New this year, customers can shop a selection of gifts from small businesses hand-picked by Jessica Alba, Ayesha Curry, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Chriselle Lim, Arianna Huffington, and Whitney Wolfe Herd. Until October 12, when Prime members spend $10 on items from select small businesses, they will receive a $10 credit to spend on Prime Day.

Did you know that you can donate to Toys for Tots easily with Alexa? To donate to a child in need, just say “Alexa, donate to Toys for Tots.” Customers can choose whether they would like to donate money or an item. If customers choose to donate a toy, Alexa will then offer a reasonably priced item appropriate for kids from the Toys for Tots Charity List. After a customer confirms the order, Amazon ships the toy directly to Toys for Tots. Customers can donate now through January 11, 2021. Plus, Amazon will match all toy donations with a toy for toy match. For more information, visit amazon.com/toysfortotsdonate.

When

Amazon realizes that small businesses got hit the hardest with the COVID-19 pandemic. So, they’re trying to help. Amazon is increasing their commitment to help small businesses in several ways.

“In the midst of an unprecedented year, we’re committed to making this the most successful Prime Day ever for our small businesses and excited for Prime members worldwide to discover new ways to support local entrepreneurs and save big on everything they need and love,” said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer. “This year’s Prime Day is the perfect opportunity for Prime members to get their holiday shopping done early from the comfort of their homes – and to have more time to spend with their families and friends throughout the season.”
