When is Black Friday?
Black Friday will take place on the 25 November, however some retailers like Amazon have chosen to extend the sale into a two week event.
Most of the UK retailers however like Currys, Game and John Lewis have confirmed that they will be holding a one day event that will take place both in store and online.
Black Friday 2015 might have felt subdued compared to the chaos that was 2014 but don’t be under any illusions, it was still the largest sales event of the year.
Currys reported an astonishing 30 TVs being sold every single minute, while orders were up 2900 per cent compared to the same time last week.
Which shops are taking part in Black Friday?
Amazon’s Black Friday event has already started. With a mixture of long term deals and Lightning Deals which expire at the end of the day the company is celebrating Black Friday for two whole weeks.
Research is key though, some deals will only last for an hour or so and then return to their original pre-sale price. If you’re a Prime member you’ll also get access to some of these deals early.
If you don’t mind buying something that has already been opened, Amazon Warehouse might be the second stop for you. With literally thousands of products from TVs to blenders there’s an immediate 10 per cent discount and potentially more as well.
Here’s just a few of the deals we’ve found so far:
4K HDR Televisions
Amazon Black Friday Deals On Xbox One Bundles, Games
The Xbox One S is quite simply one of our favourite consoles ever made. It’s better looking than the PS4 Slim and can play games in HDR straight out of the box. Also, unlike the PS4 Slim it’s a 4K console boasting 4K resolution menus, Netflix and 4K Blu-ray compatibility.
Amazon Black Friday Deals On PS4 Bundles, Games
The PS4 Slim is tiny, powerful and HDR compatible. That means that if you’ve got a 4K TV with HDR your games will look sharper, brighter and more beautiful. It’s also one of the best deals of the century as for just £250 you can get your hands on Sony’s enviable games lineup.
No official word yet on whether Game are holding their own Black Friday event yet.
Based on last year it seems entirely certain that the company will do at the very least a Black Friday sale and then potentially an additional sale on Cyber Monday.
Expect some incredibly low bundle prices on both the original Xbox One and PS4. Although if you’re really lucky you might be able to get some great deals on both the new PS4 Slim and the Xbox One S.
Both Currys and PC World will be holding Black Friday and Cyber Monday events online and in store.
Orders online will go live at 6AM while physical stores will open at 9AM. If they are planning to open early we will of course update this piece.
Argos are once again taking full advantage of Black Friday both online and in-store.
Black Friday deals and discounts will actually start on Friday 18 November and continue through to Friday 25 November.
To avoid any confusion or the general chaos that usually ensues Argos recommend that you order online and then ‘click and collect’.
Black Friday opening times for John Lewis will be the same as normal in-store however its deals and discounts will go live on the site at midnight on Thursday 24 November.
John Lewis have said they’ll adapt their deals to their rivals so it will definitely pay to do some research if you’re looking to get a product in particular.
