It may have been Thanksgiving only yesterday, but Amazon's Black Friday deals are making today feel like Christmas! Yes, we're squarely in Black Friday now, which means it's the best deal day of the year — and true to form, Amazon has dropped an epic Black Friday sale on its biggest sellers in tech, home, beauty and more, so you can get started on holiday shopping...and maybe treat yourself to a little something, too!
We present Amazon's best early Black Friday deals: no need to spend your precious time scouring the internet for the deepest discounts when they're all right here. What should you be on the lookout for? Our experts say to check out bigger-ticket items such as technology products, including laptops, TVs, and more, and that personal-tech items are the bread and butter of Black Friday 2022. Amazon Prime members are specially poised to dig in: “Prime members have the advantage as their membership can provide early access to select Lightning Deals,” Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com, shared with Yahoo Life. “These are difficult to grab, as the very best ones sell out in an instant, so Prime members having an extra window of opportunity to shop is invaluable.”Insignia 24-inch Class F20 Series Smart HD Fire TV

In case you haven’t met this modern wonder, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter enables you to make just about any type of water drinkable. The straw contains a microfiltration membrane that removes 99.999999 percent of waterborne bacteria (including E. coli and salmonella), and 99.999 percent of waterborne parasites (including giardia and cryptosporidium). The filter also removes the smallest microplastics found in the environment and reduces turbidity down to 0.2 microns.
You use this like any other straw. Simply remove the cap, place one end into water you come across in nature, and suck. Said this globetrotter: “I've used these both in Iraq and Afghanistan. Works as advertised. Extremely reliable and genuinely safe-to-use filtration system.”

This lifelike Tannenbaum arrives with a stand and is easy to put together. Just fluff and voila, you have a tree little birds and squirrels would mistake for the real thing. This one stands at 7.5 feet tall, but it's available in alternate sizes (see below).
"Usually being a person who buys cut live trees (as most fake trees don't have the same realistic appeal), I spent a lot of time searching around for a good-looking tree," shared an Amazon reviewer. "Once the tree came, I was highly impressed with the overall look and appeal...[and it] won over the hearts of my family and extended family too!"This Pura D'or formula consists of 17 active herbal ingredients, including nettle extract, saw palmetto and argan oil, to name a few. It also includes biotin, an essential nutrient that helps promote thickness, and niacin, which helps to improve scalp health.
“This shampoo has changed my life,” raved a happy customer. “My hair was falling out at a rate of 100-plus hairs in the shower, and after about a month or two of use (it's been about four months now), I only lose 10–30-ish in the shower. Yay! My hairdresser said my hair looked thick. Also smells amazing and makes your hair soft.”

Amazon’s Halo View fitness trackers essentially take on the role of doctor, nurse, personal trainer, chef, life coach and spiritual guru, monitoring everything from your heart rate to your weight fluctuations to your sleep patterns. With a Halo View, you get a 360-degree, um, survey of your health, including real-time personal stats along with expert guidance for improving your well-being in every area of your life.
The handy gizmo tracks your physical activity, sleep quantity and quality, blood oxygen levels, BMI (the tracker scans your body to measure it!) and much more to record priceless data. It all appears in a health summary you can review at any time on a full-color OLED display — the real selling point — on the face of the band, which comes in lavender, green or black. Personally, I'm feeling the lavender!
