Amazon has revealed a Santa’s sleigh full of promotionally-priced products on the eve of its week-long Black Friday sales event.

The tech-heavy deals, teased on a Sneak Peek web page, include deep discounts on Echo speakers, Fire TV devices and other proprietary Amazon gear, plus price cuts on Sony XBR 4K Ultra HD TVs.

The catch, as in past years, is that the various offers will only be available at random dates and times between Nov. 16 and Black Friday (Nov. 23). But in an effort to encourage mobile, and ostensibly, on-the-spot shopping, customers can receive alerts just before the deals go live through Amazon’s mobile app.

Other m-commerce inducements include a $5 discount on select items by using the app’s barcode scanner, camera search or augmented reality (AR) features. Desktop-bound customers can access the sale starting tomorrow at amazon.com/blackfriday.

In addition, Prime members will be incentivized to shop by voice by receiving early access to discounted Amazon devices by asking Alexa “What are my deals?” or visiting Amazon.com/voiceshopping between Nov. 17 and Nov. 21.

As part of Amazon’s holiday game plan, many of the Black Friday items, in addition to hundreds of millions of others, will be available with free shipping with no minimum purchase until the Christmas ship-date cutoff.
