With just days to until Black Friday 2020, the pre-sales are ramping up.
While the day itself falls on 27 November, running across the weekend until Cyber Monday, brands and retailers tend to start their pre-sale deals two weeks ahead of the event.
However, Amazon has smashed that precedent this year by starting its early bird sale a whole month before Black Friday itself.
Apple is notoriously reluctant in joining any sales. Typically, it only offers gift cards with qualifying purchases on Black Friday instead of discounts on products.
Amazon has kicked off its Black Friday Week sale off with a bang, offering a discount on the Apple AirPods that is hard to pass by. Read our expert review of the earbuds below, along with everything you need to know about the deal itself.

Apple AirPods with charging case: Was £159, now £124.49 – Buy now
David Phelan, our technology critic, rated these highly in his IndyBest review of the best wireless earbuds, saying: “Apple’s distinctive earbuds have been massively successful since they first launched and they remain even now some of the very lightest in-ears you can find.
“The design is unchanged since day one, but improved electronics inside mean that you can say, ‘Hey, Siri’ to invoke the virtual assistant without even touching the earbuds,” he added.
He also rated the pro version of the AirPods which are on sale too, down from £249 to £199, but still commended the standard AirPods for their sound quality: “The fit is slightly different from the pro – there’s no silicone ear tip – and there’s no noise-cancelling. Even so, audio quality is very good, as is call quality, which works even if you only use one earbud.”
