Amazon Dash button

Was £4.99, now £1.99 (from midnight tonight)

This product-reordering device is even cheaper than usual, with a 60 per cent discount for the Black Friday sales - meaning if you want to try out the new technology then this is the ideal time to buy. The Wi-Fi-connected device reorders products with the press of a button.

What to expect from Amazon this Black Friday

Amazon is releasing the rest of its deals this Friday so keep your eyes peeled, your phone charged and your credit card handy if you're planning on buying.

The online retailer has become well-known for its 'lightning deals', which give shoppers limited windows to access deals on specific products. This means some deals might only be available for an hour, while others will last the entire Black Friday sales period.
