Black Friday deals
Latest updates on Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Black Friday's no longer just one day and this year we're expecting deals to start a week or two before the day itself (26 Nov), and last until Cyber Monday (29 Nov). There's still some uncertainty this year, with some retailers already warning of stock issues, but as ever our aim is to predict the deals to come – plus a few 'duds' – to help you sort Black Friday bargains from bull...
Here are our tips for shopping during Black Friday:
- If you have your eye on something, check prices NOW. Then when it comes to Black Friday, you'll know if the 'discounts' are really cheaper. Check prices at the retailer you were planning to buy from, and do a wider price comparison using the tools mentioned below.
- Do your own research and check prices to make sure you've found the best deal – both before Black Friday and during the sale events. Use free tools such as Google Shopping, PriceSpy and PriceRunner, and the Amazon price-tracking tool, CamelCamelCamel.
- Before you spend, ask yourself, do I need it? Can I afford it? If the answer is no to any of those questions, then DON’T buy. It's not a saving if you weren't going to buy it anyway.
