Best Black Friday deals: homeware
When it comes to homeware and interiors, there are always great bargains to be found on Black Friday. And there are some great ones live already.
The White Company Black Friday deals are already being teased for this year, with the company renaming the event their 'White Weekend' instead of just 'Black Friday'. Expect at least three days full of deals that will at least match the 20% off offered last year.
Le Creuset put on an incredible 50 per cent off sale last year, with savings to be made across their whole range. And it seems the same is true this year! The kitchenware brand have already started some of their amazing savings - shop them now.
Made.com also offered wide ranging discounts across furniture on their site last year. This included £50 off their cosy looking double beds and discounts on their chic corner sofas. Loaf also had up to 20% off their sofas last year, but check in on their 'bag a bargain' on site deals first before rushing into a Black Friday sale. Not On The High Street also normally partake in Black Friday - and we're predicting some brilliant deals again this year!
See some of the best homeware deals live already below:
Best Black Friday deals: personal tech
When it comes to tech deals, Amazon is one of the best places to shop on Black Friday. Last year, Amazon reduced their entry-level Kindle to under £55. See our take on Black Friday Kindle deals for 2020 here.
If you're in the market for a new set of headphones this year or thinking of buying some as a gift, then Currys and Argos will also be offering competitive prices again this year.
When it comes to smart watches - such as Fitbits - it's a pretty safe bet that these will be reduced too. If shopping for smart watches, keep in mind that you should be looking for savings of over £30 - as otherwise, it may not be worth it.
When is Black Friday 2020 and have the deals begun already?
Black Friday was originally an American tradition, with the date always falling on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
These days, Black Friday is a global event with retailers in countries around the world all hosting huge Black Friday sales. However, the date still always falls on the first Friday after Thanksgiving – as is tradition.
Black Friday 2020 is taking place on Friday 27 November. However, many retailers will begin launching deals ahead of this date - and many already have.
There are some great deals to be had already, a week away from Black Friday itself. The Boots Black Friday deals are well underway (view the sale here), as are some brilliant homeware and tech Black Friday deals at Very.co.uk, and many more! See below for our pick of the best deals so far.
