The highly anticipated Black Friday sale is less than two weeks away. With some of the best deals of the year up for grabs, here are our top picks for 2018:


Amazon is starting early, with their sale beginning on the 16th November and running until the 25th. Many of their tech products will be largely discounted. However, these offers are expected to change and update every 5 minutes, so you must know what you want so you can bag that bargain!

Look out for:

  • Nintendo Switch (and games)
  • Echo Plus 1st generation Bundle (includes: Woox Smart Plug, Echo Buttons and Philips Hue White Bulb.)
  • Other Amazon own brand electronics, including, but not limited to, Echo Smart Speaker, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Firestick and Fire Tablets

Google is also getting involved with their new release smartphones, with their unrivalled lens quality and camera software:

  • Pixel 3
  • Pixel 3 XL is a major online retailer offering some earlier deals before the official Black Friday national event begins:

  • Sony Wireless headphones
  • Google Home mini
  • Plantronics Backbeat Fit
  • HP Chromebook

Argos is one of the more physically accessible shops if you don’t want to rely on your temperamental WiFi network! This year, the things to watch are:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A and AKG Headphone bundle
  • LA Noire (for Nintendo Switch)
  • Apple MacBook Air 2017

Finally, Currys PC World have launched their Black Friday sale early, and have the following deals to snap up:

  • Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart bundle
  • HP Intel Core i3/i5 laptops
  • HP Envy All-in-One Wireless Printer


With Christmas just around the corner, it may be worth purchasing early and keeping that student debt to a minimum! Happy shopping!
