Amazon hasn't stated exactly when these sales will happen, but we're betting that they'll probably occur either Thanksgiving Day or Black Friday. Either way, if you weren't too excited about fighting the in-store crowds over some of the hottest door-busters this year, it looks like Amazon will have you more than covered.
Even if you only place two orders through Christmas, you'll still only effectively be paying $8 per order for 2-day shipping - a rate that you'll be hard to find matched anywhere else this holiday season.
Supposedly the monthly subscription offer may not be available for everyone, but for anyone not seeing the $7.99/mo offer, we've heard of various degrees of success by using this method:
Open a Private Browsing window in FireFox or an Incognito Window in Google Chrome
Click on the "Start Your One Month Free Trial" button
The $7.99/mo rate should be offered
Let us know if this works for you or if you figured out another way to get the rate to appear. I've noticed that the rate does not show up in Internet Explorer for me, but shows up in the Google Incognito window.

Bass Pro Shops 5-Day Sale starts Wednesday, November 21, however the 6-hour doorbuster items are only valid from 5am to 11am on Black Friday. All of the Friday doorbusters are on pages 1-6, while the 5-Day sales items start on page 7.
Navy Exchange, along with all other base exchange, is open to all active members of the military, retired military and their dependents. This year Navy Exchange will be starting up their Black Friday sales on at 6am on Black Friday with the doorbusters sales lasting all day Friday.
Online shoppers can shop the Navy Exchange online Black Friday sale as early as 12:01am on Black Friday. If there is a computer mouse icon next to the item in the ad, that item will be available in their online Black Friday sale.
The guarantee states that those three items will remain in-stock and available for purchase from 10pm to 11pm on Thanksgiving Day. If any of the items sells out, you can purchase a "Guarantee Card" which will ensure that you will get the item before Christmas at the advertised Black Friday price.
What's most interesting is that the release of this ad came completely out of left-field. There was no hints or lead-up to the release of the ad and it's not even being promoted on the Walmart.com homepage, instead it's buried behind the "Local Ad" page. It's been an interestingly quiet season for Walmart thus far, luckily for them, their Black Friday ad is able to make enough noise on its own.
We just posted a trifecta of new Sears-branded Black Friday ads:
Sears Outlet's Black Friday sale starts Thanksgiving night at 8pm with door-busters lasting until Midnight. Sears Outlet will then have another round of Black Friday door-busters starting at 6am on Black Friday.
Sears Home Appliance Stores and Sears Hometown Stores look to be having very similar door-buster specials as many of the items and prices are repeated on both ads. The Appliance Store ad looks to only be door-busters only, while the Hometown Store is the full advertisement with sales from all the door-buster sales along with their weekend sales.
UPDATE - Sears has extended the sale until 7am CT tomorrow! A full extra day of savings with many new products added (e.g. LG Washer / Dryer pair, Kenmore Refrigerator and Docker's Dress Shoes)!
The sale has just begun and lasts until 7am CT on Tuesday, November 13. Sears is claiming that appliances will not go on sale until 5pm CT tonight (Sunday), but we think Sears may have jumped the gun a bit because the discounts appear to be live site-wide.
Some of the best deals we're seeing is among the appliances, including a GE Washing Machine on sale for $70 less than Home Depot's Black Friday sale price! We've highlighted some of the best deals we saw below:
