As we march closer and closer to Black Friday, you may have noticed that Amazon has started “early” Black Friday Deals.

If you are like me, you may have become frustrated because it seems like Amazon’s Lightning Deals are 100% claimed SUPER FAST.

Never fear, I have a couple of tips and tricks to make sure you get your Amazon’s Black Friday Lightning Deals each and every time.

Must Do: Join The Waitlist

Even if the item is 100% Claimed or SOLD OUT, choose “Join The Wait List”. In many cases, they actually have more product. Joining the Wait List lets Amazon know that you are serious about buying. Waitlists are also first-come, first served.

Option 1: Purchase Item Now (Instant Success)



Sometimes as soon as you click “Join The Waitlist” you can purchase an item. If this is the case, you have 15 minutes to complete the order before the item given to the next person on the waitlist.

Option 2: Wait For The Item (Will I Get It?)



Or, you may receive this notice after clicking “Join The Waitlist”… “You Joined This Waitlist – Continue Shopping”. The continue shopping is the important part  for this message.



Depending on your place in line, you may have to continue shopping for 30 seconds or 10 minutes.

Regardless, you need to stay on Amazon’s website.

Whenever there is an item available, Amazon will alert you through a pop-up box (on the right hand side of your screen) if you got off the waitlist. So if you aren’t on Amazon, it is hard to know. Once the pop-up box comes up, you will have 15 minutes to make your purchase.

That’s it. It’s that simple and easy to take advantage of Amazon’s Black Friday Lightning Deals even if you are on the waitlist.
