Black Friday - two words synonymous with a sales extravaganza, and 2019's event is edging closer and closer.
Taking place tomorrow on Friday 29 November 2019, this year's Black Friday is a key date for bargain hunters' calendars, and this year, comes very conveniently right in time for pay day.
Whether you're after big discounts on the latest tech, money off your next ASOS order or just the best bargains out there to do all your Christmas shopping, there will be no shortage of deals come Black Friday 2019, with this year's set to be one of the biggest yet.
While traditionally consisting of just one day of sales, this time round, the deals mayhem that is Black Friday has already begun at most stores, with the likes of Currys, John Lewis and Amazon already running some impressive discounts.
And as well as the big name retailers, plenty of smaller companies are also taking part in Black Friday this 2019, such as Gandys London who have up to 70% off, but also donate 10% of proceeds to setting up kids campuses worldwide.
As per usual, some of the best savings are set to be found on tech, with Amazon devices, TVs, laptops and plenty of SIM-only mobile phone deals some of the most discounted items up for grabs.
If you're after a new phone contract, Martin Lewis himself has raved about Three's 8GB for £8 Black Friday offering, which he claims is the 'cheapest he's ever seen'.
For everyone that misses out, the weekend of sales will then be followed by Cyber Monday, where shoppers get one last chance to bag a bargain.
When is Black Friday 2019?
In the UK, Black Friday will be on Friday 29 November 2019 with Cyber Monday taking place on the following Monday - so Monday 2 December 2019.
Originally a US tradition, the huge sales event has since spread across the pond to the UK, with retailers all across the nation all simultaneously discounting their products.
Therefore, Black Friday always falls immediately after the Thanksgiving holiday - ideally placed for the last pay check before Christmas.
Where will the best Black Friday 2019 deals be?
While Black Friday used to be almost exclusively centred around tech, we're now seeing savings across multiple different categories, from fashion and beauty, to supermarkets and even things like toilet paper!

How long does Black Friday last?
Most retailers like Amazon and Curry's launch deals over a week or so before Black Friday and Cyber Monday (such as Curry's Black Tag event), so you may be able to pick up bargains long before the big day.
We have noticed that prices do tend to fall slightly between the date they first launched and actual Black Friday, so it may be worth waiting it out for an extra discount when the ante gets upped around the Black Friday weekend - if you're not scared of stock running out, that is.
Whilst the majority of deals end on Cyber Monday, some retailers may keep going for a few days after, although nothing has been confirmed yet.
Black Friday might be the best day of the year to bag a bargain, but you can save some serious money throughout the full month of November thanks to Mirror discount codes.
