As of Dec. 13, Amazon is repackaging a ton of Black Friday and Cyber Week deals (plus adding a few new ones) for its first Very Merry Deals event.

Naturally, Amazon has been in holiday mode since mid-October, kicking off holiday savings with its first Prime Early Access Sale. Black Friday and Cyber Monday came and went, and are now being followed up with one last pre-holiday savings extravaganza. Best Buy had the same idea.

The Very Merry Deals event runs through Dec. 21, with sale items marked with a green “arrives before Christmas” label. This might be your last chance to avoid a frantic last-minute gift idea brainstorm or expedited shipping chaos — so shop as early as you can.

Some deals will likely see a more permanent residency throughout the event’s duration (Echo devices, Fire tablets, and Kindles). Others may stick around for a few days at a time (select Nespresso machines have been 25% off for days now), while Deals of the Day will pop up and be gone within 24 hours. To keep track of sale prices during the event, look back at this post for updates, peep the “upcoming” tab on the Very Merry Deals event page, or add an item to your watchlist for a head’s up if it goes on sale.
