Black Friday, the biggest shopping event of the year, is finally here. From now until the final day of the sale, 30 November – otherwise known as Cyber Monday – the IndyBest team will be bringing you the very best deals, as they launch here.
Originally a one day event hailing from America and taking place the day after Thanksgiving, this year it has expanded into a huge month-long sale with many brands and retailers slashing prices across tech, toys, home appliances, fashion, beauty and more.
Although Cyber Monday is traditionally the online-only day of the event, this year the entire event will be online as shops in England remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning online sales are predicted to surge by 35 to 45 per cent during the event.
So whether you are looking to get Christmas presents sorted or are after a laptop or TV upgrade, a coffee machine, a discount on a pair of AirPods or to stock up on your favourite perfume, you’ll be sure to find an unmissable deal here this Black Friday.
Our IndyBest team hand-picks every deal we feature. We may earn some commission from the links in this article, but our selections have been made independently and without bias. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
There are Dyson savings to be had
The Black Friday sales are the best time to bag a bargain from Dyson since its products don’t come cheap.
There’s £100 to save on this V8 absolute extra cordless vacuum cleaner, which can deep clean carpets and hard floors, offering 40 minutes of use on a full charge.
It has a soft roller cleaner too, which claims to pick up large debris and fine dust in one go, and comes with four cleaning tools for cleaning stairs, upholstery and cars, so you’ll be sure to get enough use out of it.
Race you to the checkout.
Save on your next microwave
