Some quick information on how Black Friday and Cyber Monday came about:


What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is 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.

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

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is a marketing term referring to the first Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, which lasts for 24 hours.

When does Black Friday start?

Officially it's the 26th November but some merchants go early, usually around 3 weeks prior.

When does Cyber Monday start?

Cyber Monday is 29th November, usually lasting one day but over the past few years we have seen some deals extended into the day after but wouldn't count on it.

More Ways to be Black Friday / Cyber Monday ready:

  • Set a budget
  • Make a wishlist
  • Only buy what you need
  • Price comparison
  • Don’t go overboard on gifts
  • Look out for Black Friday voucher codes


Just because a price drops during a 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 CamelCamelCamel, which lets you search for price history on Amazon as a decent benchmark, another is Pricespy.

Weigh up the costs of warranties

For example: Retailer A, may offer a TV for £700 with a 1 year warranty but retailer B may over the same TV for £750 but with a 5 year warranty, £50 extra for an extra 4 years' peace of mind could be totally worth it.

Sort out the best way to pay for items from abroad

Some of the best deals come from websites based overseas, such as Chinese retailers like AliExpress or Amazon Germany.

If you want to take best advantage of these, it pays off to sort out a dedicated payment method which charges less or no fees. You can read all about these in our Buying from abroad: from taxes to returns, how to shop safely guide

Many retailers have a price promise

Many retailers have a price promose i.e you buy say 26th November, if you spot it cheaper wthin say 30 days, you can claim back the difference. This does differ between each retailer. Some retailers don't have a price promise at all, but may do it as a good will gesture so worth bearing in mind.

If buying a mobile phone contract

if taking out a contract, factor in the price rise in April, as this may take you over your budget.

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, and last year being pretty difficult due to COVID, 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 2021 deals do we think will be popular?

Games consoles - PS4, Xbox One S, Xbox One X and the Nintendo Switch & Switch - with PlayStation and Microsoft releasing the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, along with Nintendo releasing the new OLED Switch, i'm hopeful we'll see some stronger bundles on 'last gen' consoles, although still very popular.

Also likely we'll see some strong prices on the likes of Call Of Duty: Vanguard and FIFA 22

Currys (Now rebranded Currys again, rather than Currys PC World) had some strong discounts last year which includes Laptops like the ASUS ZenBook 14 UM433IQ-A5037T 14" Laptop and the Nvidia Shield TV 4K Media Streaming Device

Halfords usually has something up it's sleeve with discounts ride-on toys, reduced bikes, money off XX spends with vouchers, free delivery and so on.

If you're looking for Broadband or Superfast Broadband, likely it's worth holding off until end of November as we saw some strong deals e.g Virgin Media Ultimate Oomph - £77.99pm - £35 setup - M500 Fibre / 2 V6 Boxes + Sky Sports & Cinema / Unlimited Data Sim + Free 4K 43" TV

eBay usually have some sort of code, usually around a week before black Friday itself. Usually around 20% off selected sellers, we may even see a discount sitewide (we can dream!)

Tesco came out with some cracking deals last year including the Nintendo Switch, some dead cheap TV's and even Amazon Fire Sticks

Costco usually have some sort of discount, the last 2 years have been £10 off a £100 spend via a voucher code (see here). Expect the same again but time will tell.

Amazon is likely to have 20% - 30% off various warehouse deals, offers on Amazon Prime membership, discounted Amazon Music offers, the usual tech stuff & more

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

ALDI was a big suprise last year, they had some super strong offers including LEGO and a cracking nintendo Switch offer
