Combine Amazon’s Massive Black Friday Sale Event with AR View This Month
10 days of deals are going to try and make you part with cash.
There are just over two weeks to go until the annual Black Friday sales bonanza begins, tempting shoppers with all manner of discounts and deals galore. Global retailer Amazon tends to go all out for the event, offering all sorts of limited time deals, and this year is no different with a full ten days of sales for UK customers.
Prior to last years Black Friday sales Amazon had released augmented reality (AR) app AR View for iOS devices, allowing Apple users to try various products at home using the technology. Since then, not only have more products been added meaning that the likelihood of them being in the sale is increased, Android users will now be able to make use of the feature thanks to ARCore adoption in February.
“We know many of our customers are starting to think about Christmas presents, parties and decorations at this time of year and we’re excited to offer great deals when shoppers need them most,” said Doug Gurr, Country Manager, Amazon.co.uk in a statement. “We focus on making shopping as easy and enjoyable for the customer as possible so we hope customers will enjoy the new AR View feature in the app, which uses augmented reality technology to allow shoppers to see selected products in their own home before they decide to buy, just in time for this year’s biggest ever Black Friday sale and perfect for kitting out the home before Christmas guests start arriving.”
This year, the Amazon.co.uk Black Friday Deals Store will be open from 00:01 on Friday 17th until 23:59 on Sunday 26th November. Amazon will offer new ‘Deals of the Day’ every day throughout the period across the site, with products ranging from must-have electronics, toys and fashion to sports, beauty, home items and more.
And for those in London, Amazon will be hosting a Home of Black Friday pop up event to celebrate the start of the Christmas shopping season. Located at 3-10 Shoreditch High Street in London, the free four-day multi-room experience will be open from Thursday 22nd November until Sunday 25th November showcasing the very best of Black Friday at Amazon alongside prize giveaways, workshops, VIP experiences and product sampling.
