Today, it's morphed from a one-day event to a four- or five-day shopping extravaganza with Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday changing the retail landscape. The Echo Dot, for example, is now just $39, down from $49.
Black Friday is becoming more of a chore for shoppers compared to what it once was.
"That demands significant planning for a very fluid trading environment across hundreds of offers and we are always focused on offering the best price match promise all year and especially around Black Friday".
In the lead up to Black Friday, Amazon hasn't shied away from putting tons of tech on the discount block, including many of its own devices.
"I think it's gross when Americans spend Thanksgiving Day expressing gratitude for what they have and then get up from the table before the gravy is even cold to go buy more stuff", she said.

It's perhaps no surprise that Black Friday - in the United Kingdom at least - isn't all it's purported to be.
So far Amazon has been a bit tight-lipped on what their ultimate deals are going to be, but they have revealed a few of the best so far - including the popular Amazon Echo and Amazon Fire TV. The fact that extends over the weekend and well into the next week (or for two straight weeks in the case of Amazon) makes that point fairly obvious.
Argos said: "We offer customers thousands of great deals over the Black Friday period and work hard to ensure that all of our offers are fully compliant with the full range of regulations and guidance in pricing practice".
Target offers a 50-inch Hisense 4K Smart UHDTV for $249.99, which is one of the best deals out there for Black Friday among the TV selections. All deals are available to check and reserve on www.argos.co.uk/blackfriday with instant collection in over 800 stores nationwide, as well as nearly 30 stores in Sainsbury's supermarkets and another 30 digital collection points in Sainsbury's stores.
Every year around Thanksgiving we see huge savings across a wide array of products. The official website of the online holiday also says that if you use the special code "MINISCENT" with a purchase of $25, you will receive a deluxe fragrance sample.
The mobile retail market is thriving, providing countless ways for retailers to make shopping more efficient and exciting on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and into the new year.
