The biggest shopping days of the year are right around the corner, so now is a great time to start drafting your list of things you’d like to purchase at a deep discount.

And if home security cameras are on that list, you’ll want to check out Blink. We have an in-depth Blink review that goes into all the specifics, but suffice it to say, they’re one of our favorite affordable security camera choices. And since they’re owned by Amazon, Blink prices are always slashed during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

FYI: Black Friday’s history is a little darker than you’d expect. Back in the 1950s, police in Philadelphia used it to describe the chaotic wave of suburban shoppers that flooded the city in advance of the Army-Navy football game. Retailers saw huge booms, though, and the name and tradition stuck.

We’re going to get into what Blink deals we’ve seen in the past and what we think this year might look like, but first, let’s clear something up. When exactly will these deals be taking place?

When Are Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023?

Black Friday is always the day after Thanksgiving, and Cyber Monday follows immediately after. So that means this year’s Black Friday will be on Nov. 25, and Cyber Monday will fall on the 28th. That doesn’t mean, though, that sales will be occurring only on those specific days.

We usually see retailers start slashing prices the week of Thanksgiving, and deeply discounting items on the actual days themselves. So pay attention starting around the 22nd or so; you don’t want to miss out on some great deals on Blink security cameras. And if last year is any indication, this year’s event is not going to be one to miss.

Past Blink Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

Last year, Amazon went all out on Blink mini cameras — they were practically giving them away. Individual cameras were just $19.99 apiece, and you could save even more by bundling two or three together. When you bought packages, we saw the cameras going for as little as $16.99 a pop. Normally, they run about $35 apiece.

Pro Tip: Cameras are an important part of your home security posture, but you might want to add a layer of protection. Maybe consider checking out our roundup of the best home security systems of 2023. That’ll help you get a solid foundation.

On top of that, Blink Indoor Cameras — one of their more sophisticated pieces of equipment — went on sale for $44.99, down from $69.99. So will we see a repeat of last year? All signs point to yes.

But if you’re looking to save on a Blink camera right now, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

When Will Blink Announce Its Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales?

It’s tough to determine exactly when retailers will announce their sales, and Blink is no different. Since the boundaries around Black Friday and Cyber Monday tend to be a little hazy, it’s not unrealistic to expect to start seeing discounts in the week leading up to Black Friday, and then on the day itself some pretty major marquee sales to be announced.

We recommend setting up Google alerts for the products you’re looking for, or check Amazon regularly during the week leading up to the 25th.
