Black Friday is the day that comes after the American holiday, Thanksgiving, which always falls on the third Thursday of November. This year, Black Friday is on November 25, and the one-day markdown to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas shopping season is now taking off, big time, in the UK. The most lucrative price drops tend to be found on tech items, and these are the items to look out for in the bargain bin.
E-Readers Going For a Song
If you’re looking to surprise someone with an e-reader this festive season or have finally decided to take the plunge and swap your paperbacks for an online library, then Black Friday is the day to make the purchase.
Games Console Prices Plummet
Flash Sales On Cameras
If you’re ready to take photography and movie-making to the next level, look out for great deals on entry level DSLR cameras and versatile video cameras, such as the GoPro. Camera accessories such as tripods, lenses and programming software are also likely to be on offer.
TVs Take a Price Tumble
Televisions have always traditionally been the ‘must buy’ on Black Friday and this year is expected to be no different. If you’re in the market for a large 4K Ultra High Definition TV or a curved screen TV, your best bet is to wait until Black Friday.
Pick Up a Phone
The iPhone 7 is probably the most hyped mobile product rumoured to be on offer on Black Friday, both as a stand-alone sale and on contract. This, in itself, will spark competitor discounts; so if you need to upgrade this is the day to do it.
