Black Friday UK online deals: Looking forward to some top deals

If you're reading this, you're either very early or very late for Black Friday. It isn't due until November 25 in 2016, you see.

You can rest assured that as the date gets near we'll be updating this page with all of the best tech deals. These days the deals tend to start in the week leading up to Black Friday itself, so get here early.

We'll also cover Black Friday's younger, nerdier sister, Cyber Monday, which is growing in stature.

For now, check out precisely what Black Friday is, and take a look at some of the top deals that were on offer in 2015 by way of an appetite whetter.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is one of the most significant shopping days of the year. It has become so popular that it now takes over a whole week. But it comes down to one day, and that is traditionally the day after the Thanksgiving in the US.

Since the early 1930s, this has been viewed as the start of the Christmas shopping season for our American cousins, kicking off extensive promotional sales.

These days, it's when retailers price-drop many of their goods, causing a pre-Christmas rush of epic proportions. Like fast food and dodgy grammar, Black Friday has now bled into the UK from the US. Several UK retailers – online and on the high street – now offer sales worth checking out.

So, drop everything you're doing and bookmark this page for all the best deals. Loads of UK retailers are taking part, you're bound to pick up a bargain.

We've highlighted the cream of the crop just below, while the rest of the deals are listed by store further down.

Here are the retailers to check out in the UK. It's a little early for specific deals right now, but we'll be updating these listings with the best deals as Black Friday approaches.

Amazon Black Friday Deals

Today's Best Deals:

We'll add more deals as they become available

More awesome Amazon deals

Those who have signed up to the company’s premium service, Amazon Prime, will get early access to 30,000 Lightning deals before they are made available to other shoppers.

Amazon offers new deals every hour throughout the Black Friday week, starting on Monday. These offers cover the full spectrum of what Amazon has to offer, which is pretty much everything.

In the past you’ve been able to get great deals on electronic goods such as laptops, consoles, cameras, smartphones, and the like.

You’ll need to be quick though, as all the best deals sell out very quickly. As always, we recommend that you stick around at least 15 minutes after the deal starts. Many people who put products in their basket as soon as the deal starts then leave them to time out after 15 minutes, making deals that previously appeared ‘sold out’ available once more.

John Lewis Black Friday Deals

Today's best deals:

Purveyors of a slightly higher class of UK retail experience, you get the feeling that John Lewis finds this whole Black Friday nonsense rather wearisome. Still, it's gamely joined the fray in recent years, seeing through its price-match promise to include such deals.

"At John Lewis our commitment to being Never Knowingly Undersold means that we match our competitors' prices all year round – so on this day, we'll have even more deals to enjoy," it says.

Apple Black Friday Deals

Here's how big a deal Black Friday is - even Apple gets involved. Yes, that's the Apple that doesn't usually drop the price of any of its gear unless it's clearing old stock or selling to students.

We don’t know what Apple will be offering just yet - it never publicises its BF offers much in advance - but in previous years we've seen modest savings of between £15 and £81 on many of its iPad, Mac, and iPod touch models. Pretty stingy then, but at least it's something.

Your best bet is to head to Apple's web page on the day.

Apple website

But Apple isn't the only one offering deals. If you’re in the market for an iPhone 6S, you could save an incredible £125 thanks to Vodafone and Mobiles.co.uk.

The retailers have partnered up on a deal that heavily discounts the iPhone 6S 64GB model.

Instead of paying the full £225 for Vodafone’s contract, you’ll instead pay just £100 – that ties you into a 24-month contract at £31-per-month, with unlimited minutes, texts, and 6GB of data.

To bag the offer, all you need to do is enter the voucher code BLACKFRI6S at checkout.

The deal also works across a range of colour options, which includes gold, rose gold, and space grey, and comes with free delivery.

Your link to the Trusted Review for the 50" TV is for the model LTDN50K321UWTSEU which is different from the Amazon discounted one HE50KEC315UWTS. Are they otherwise similar?


November 26, 2015, 12:25 pm

We're pretty confident they're the same models. You sometimes see this where companies sell through similar models to different retailers. So far as I can tell, one has a silver frame and the other is black. The specs look the same otherwise.

Thank you. It looks like you're right. And it's just dropped to under £400 on Amazon!
