Amazon has launched its Black Friday bargain deals five days ahead of time.

More than 7,000 deals will be featured on the website from midnight on Monday November 23, with new offers going live every ten minutes, according to Amazon.

Discounts will be divided between “lightning deals”, which available in limited quantities for a short period of time, and “deals of the day” on selected products for one day only. Prime members get access to lightning deals 30 minutes ahead of regular shoppers.

Hundreds of British businesses, selling on Amazon Marketplaces, are also participating in Black Friday Deals Week for the first time this year, which means that there will be more items to chose from.

“This year, we have more than 20 times the number of deals we had in 2010 when we first introduced Black Friday to the UK and we’re expecting record numbers of customers to take advantage,” said Christopher North, managing director.
