Amazon announced that Deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday are now being accepted through Friday, September 27.
We recommend getting deals submitted as soon as possible given the influx of submissions Amazon will receive over the next two weeks. The approval process can take time so make sure you give yourself a buffer to resolve any issues and resubmit by the 27th. The latest date we recommend submitting your deals is Friday, September 20.
The deadline for deal submissions in Mexico is Friday, October 4. This includes deals for Buen Fin, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Once again, we recommend submitting as soon as possible, but the latest you should submit your deals is Friday, September 27.

Depending on your budget and goals, you may want to opt for Lightning Deals, Best Deals or a combination of the two. To make sure you have a smooth approval process, be sure to check your Vendor Central account and adhere to all of the requirements for each campaign type.
