Black Friday 2017: all the best UK deals in one place.
Where to find the UK’s best Black Friday sale offers, from Amazon and Argos to John Lewis and Tesco.
Shoppers will splash out more than £2.5bn on Black Friday deals, as the UK continues its affair with the US-inspired discount day.
Sales will continue over the weekend with £7.3bn expected to be spent between Friday morning and Monday night according to the Centre for Retail Research and the Vouchercodes website.
A fifth more people are expected to hit the high street than on a normal Friday, according to ShopperTrak, but most of the action takes place online in this country, with shoppers choosing to bargain hunt from under the duvet using their phone or laptop rather than queueing up outside stores in the early hours.
The best travel deals and discounts for Cyber Monday and Black Friday
Spending is expected to be up this year as more stores join the event, but experts say bargains may be harder to find as stores battle rising costs and inflation.Moneysavingexpert.com advises shopping around and researching the items you want to buy rather than relying on discount promises from retailers. They may be offering “70% off” their own price, but it doesn’t mean the same item isn’t cheaper elsewhere.
Sticking to a shopping list of items you actually want, using price tracker tools such as Camelcamelcamel and watching out for discount codes are also a good idea.
Finally, be wary of “too good to be true” prices – quite possibly they are – so carefully check terms and conditions and buyer reviews for sites you’ve not used before offering very cheap prices.
