I know this should technically go in Deal Talk but posting here because tons of us have Prime and few of us go to Deal Talk. Mods can move if they like. Hope the nuts won't TD just because it's in the wrong forum.

I suspect this has already been posted. I searched and couldn't find it, but if this is a repost please merge threads.

For everyone who's been asking about Black Friday, based on Amazon's press release I think this will be happening for Black Friday. The release makes many mentions to "holiday" shopping. There are also some upcoming deals included in the release. Here it is:

Yes it is. Amazon has been chipping away at our benefits lately so it's nice to get a new solid perk like this one.

You share the benefit with family members. The main account has all prime rights but "shared" accounts have only shipping benefit.

I'm assuming they are an authorized user for a family account or whatever. They get free shipping but no extra perks like video.

This should help out during the crazy two weeks or so of lightning black friday sales. Unless they don't make them eligible. Maybe I'll actually get some of their deals for once.

But if the Lightning deal is good, seems it could easily sell out with just prime members alone! Amazon will have a lot of angry non-prime customers then.... doesn't make sense to me! Confused
