Posted 8th Oct
Hi all, as many of you know Black Friday 2019 is creeping up on us pretty fast, so I've pulled together everything we know - who's expected to take part, how to get alerts for the deals YOU want and so on.

I'll also be listing the BEST deals as/when live so bookmark this thread to keep up!

  • When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019? Black Friday 2019 is 29th November and Cyber Monday is the 2nd December 2019.

  • What is Black Friday? It's the name traditionally given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving in the US, which has long been regarded as the first day of the Christmas shopping season, when retailers release many special offers.


    It exploded in popularity as online shopping took off in the 2000s - Black Friday UK soon followed and now is a MASSIVE yearly event for many.

  • What is Cyber Monday? The Monday following the US holiday of Thanksgiving also started being promoted by online retailers as a day for exceptional bargains in the 2000s. Cyber Monday followed suit and is usually one the busiest online days of the year, usually falling just after the last pay day for most before Christmas.

More ways to get Black Friday ready!

There is plenty that you can do ahead of time to make sure you are in tip-top shape for the big day

First, read these 10 pro tips and tricks to prepare for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which include setting a budget, tracking retailer offers and how to pay safely. Then...

  • Decide what you want, and try to stick to it...

    There will be so many offers around, that it is best to decide in advance what you actually want to buy, to avoid getting too caught up in the excitement and ending up with something that wasn't really on your wishlist. It's not a great deal if you don't actually want it!
  • Do your research

    Just because a price drops during Black Friday sale, this doesn't always make something a great deal. Some may not be a bargain they're made out to be...

    Take your list of targets and search on hotukdeals to see what the best prices have been over the last few months. You can also try using funky website CamelCamelCamel which lets you search for price history on Amazon as a decent benchmark.



Our predictions of Black Friday and Cyber Monday bargains

It is really difficult to accurately predict the deals we will see - we talk with retailers to get an idea about whether they'll be getting involved or not, but the details of specific products and prices aren't revealed until much closer to the time though.

However, based on what we have seen in previous years, we are happy to share the sort of areas we'd expect to see offers in, and some benchmarks for what good would look like

What Black Friday 2019 deals do we think will be popular?

Games consoles - PS4, Xbox One S, Xbox One X and the Nintendo Switch & Switch

Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be released around Christmas 2020, expect some big discounts on the PlayStation 4 console & games this year, as it heads towards the end of its lifecycle (although don't worry, it'll be supported for quite some time yet)

Here are some we saw on Black Friday 2018, so this year they could be even stronger:- PS4 Slim 500GB Red Dead Redemption 2 or Black Ops 4 or Fifa 19 console + Doom + Hidden Agenda £199.85- PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 controllers under £30

Microsoft and Nintendo won't want to miss out on the action, especially as new models of both the Xbox One (the All-Digital Edition) and Switch (the Lite version) have just launched. So we expect to see- Xbox One Consoles to drop under £150,For the All Digital Edition Xbox to be heavily discounted Offers on the Nintendo Switch Lite following its launch, we reckon it could drop to £150 with one game


Deals on the popular new release games, with Call of duty: Modern Warfare and FIFA 20 likely to hit the sub £32 mark

Currys made a promise on a lot of their items on Black Friday last year, if the price goes lower on Black Friday they'd refund the difference - hopefully they'll do the same this year. Currys also had some strong offers like TASSIMO by Bosch Happy Coffee Machine - Various Colours for £29

eBayusually joins in the Black Friday fun with a cracker - my prediction is a code with 15-20% off either selected sellers or sitewid

Tescousually has an in-store Black Friday promotion - deals we saw last year were TV's, Consoles, Clothing, Home & Living & more

Boots.com usually has big discounts on their Star gifts and the super popular Soap & Glory gift sets e.g Soap and Glory Bath-Time Black Friday Bundle for £40. Superdrug also had some crazy offers, expect more of the same like offer stacks, codes and bundles.

Super strong Sim only deals and some super strong contract phone offers like last year when Fonehouse launched this beauty and the Xiaomi Redmi 6A and Mi Band 3 from Three.

Expect big toy offers from the likes of Argos like 3 for 2 toys and Smyths Toys like £5 off £50 and £10 off £100 spends like last year

adidas likely to have around the same discount as last year with an extra 30% off sale and non sale with free delivery, expect Reebok & Nike will do similar

Costco expected to do another XX off a XX spend - e.g on Black Friday 2018 had £15 off £100 spend

Amazon is likely to have 20% off various warehouse deals, offers on Amazon Prime membership, discounted Amazon Music offers, the usual tech stuff & more

The Amazon Black Friday sale will run for eight days from 00:01 on Friday 22 November until 23:59 on Friday 29 November.

Debenhamsusually get in on the Black Friday week fun and expect heavy discounts on clothing and usually have offers like VAT FREE savings on all fragrances.

Morrisons tends to have in-store offers - on Black Friday 2018 had a 1.5 Litre Magnum of Prosecco for £10

Gearbestwill likely take part again with offers on Xiaomi Electric Scooters, Phones, Mi Bands, Earbuds and so on.

John Lewis & Partnersoften takes part with the usual discounts on gaming, home, electricals - and all with its famous extended warranties.

Halfords usually has something up tts sleeve with discounts ride-on toys, reduced bikes, money off XX spends with vouchers and so on.

Expect discounts on Aukey and Ravpower items including Powerbanks, Car Chargers, Dash cams.

I quite like him
Very informative, thanks. I do find that better deals can be had away from BF though generally (depending on what you are after)

Having had my old phone broke now for over a week, I am looking at buying the new iPhone 11 but was originally planning on waiting until Black Friday to get it as i knew there would be some good deals about. However after seeing the post regarding the iPhone 11 for £29.99 a month on the Apple website I thought this may be the best option for me being that financing would definately be my only option for getting this phone. My question is for whether it would be better for me to try and find another solution for a phone for a couple of weeks, or bite the bullet and get the contract as to me it seems a good enough deal already and I already have a SIM which I am more than happy with. Any advice?

What a douche, its personal preference, they both do the same thing....


That’s like saying a Ford Fiesta does the same thing as a Ferrari ?! I’m pretty sure you don’t see anyone queuing up for the new LG or HTC ! Shame you sound poor and never used an iPhone don’t worry you stick with your basic phone or ask Santa Claus for an iPhone and you’ll see how much easier they are to use

No, don't kill the dream


It’s true. Best deals are the ones that are not too common or advertised. Bit like best places to visit are not the crowded tourist spots but the small beautiful towns surrounding them You get more out of those

That’s all of them isn’t it ? Lol
Can't wait for some GOOD bargains.

I need a Switch, new laptop and hopefully some clothes and grocery related bargains for Christmas and the new year.

I feel people should only buy what you absolutely need to buy, don't buy stuff just because its cheap and it looks good. Make a list of the things you really want to get and just target those items over the sale periods. If you absolutely have to use credit cards try get a 0% interest one for 6/12 months and pay it off as quickly as you can and don't forget to go through services like topcashback and quidco for money back.

Worked my bum off this year to put a nice £2,000 away specifically for BF that I fully intend to spoil myself with. That's my budget and I won't be silly enough to go beyond it.
Notice how all the PS4 bundle deals have gone back to to £349 again!

I’m comparing the prices now to what they were last week (£299) ps4 pro with the latest cod. Now £349. Was £299 for a few good weeks as well. Fifa20 was the another bundle at the same price.
I’m looking at cot beds for my twins nursery as they are on the verge of growing out if their cribs but with the Mothercare/Mamas n Papas situation there may be nothing left by then 😩

Yes.
I didn’t take part in Black Friday last year, but would be interested to hear from those who did. Specific to travel, what were the discounts like on hotel booking websites (i.e. Expedia & Hotels.com) from 2018’s event?

I’m looking to go away, have already found some reasonable prices at the moment, but wondered if it was best to hold off for a couple of weeks. Depended really upon whether last year’s offerings were really special!
Any sneak previews for black Friday broadband bundle deals?
Does anyone know if Dunelm take part in Black Friday?
Hi, I need to get a dehumidifier. I was thinking of meaco, I've had one before and it was amazing. Do you think it's worth it waiting for black friday ? Are they likely to go cheaper? Does anyone knows ??

You’re probably a bit late to find any stock but if you have a tesco nearby they’re doing 2 switch games for £60 doubt they’ll get cheaper than that. Ends Wednesday
