The Black Friday sales season is here! The best deals are often not on Amazon. The prices shown below are the best available now, though you may need to buy quickly as some deals will sell out.

Black Friday deals are here. Amazon kicked off its Early Black Friday deals in late-October, followed closely by Currys PC World which launched its own early Black Friday sale earlier this month. The retailer's prices in many cases are even putting Amazon's deals to shame

Currys' early Black Friday sale ends 19 November but it promises its prices won't drop further when Black Friday does arrive. 

The retailer calls its Black Friday sale the Currys Black Tag event. You can register your interest here.

As one of the UK’s leading electrical retailers, you’ll find offers on everything from TVs, laptops, cameras, smart home, vacuum cleaners and kitchen appliances at Currys. Below, we've rounded up the best Currys deals, along with expert buying advice on finding the best price.

From: Currys PC World

Was: £259

Now: £219  (£40 off)

Currys is so confident in its pricing that it offers a price matching promise through the year. If you find the product is cheaper on, Argos, Asda, John Lewis, Tesco or any other UK retailer store or website you can get in touch to get a price match, even up to seven days after you’ve purchased the item. For more details, read the price-match terms.

If you’re looking for something specific over the holiday season our advice is clear: make sure you’ve checked other retailers and the manufacturer itself to be sure you’re getting the best price. 

Don’t be overly concerned about the size of the discount or the percentage; ensure that the price your paying is actually a good value for money. This is why we'd recommend looking up a product review before you buy, as you might be better off with a lower price on a previous model on certain products, like a Fitbit or iPhone, for example.

You’ll find deals in stores at Currys as well as online, but we prefer to grab a cuppa and use the website instead. Currys features its strongest deals on the Home page, but there’s a Clearance section as well where you can often find other deals.

You won’t have to pay for delivery at Currys as it’s free if you’re happy to wait three to five days for your item. If you’re in a hurry, you can click and collect for free from your local shop.

When is Black Friday 2020 - should you wait for a better deal?

Black Friday itself will take place on Friday 27 November, immediately followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November.

Traditionally the biggest sales event of the year, it may yet throw up some even greater tech deals, but sales have started earlier than ever in 2020 and many retailers have shared the messaging that prices won't go lower on Black Friday itself.

Plus, with so much uncertainty around finance and retail, and no guarantees regarding what discounts we will see, we advise you not to wait: if you see a deal you like, on a product you need, and you can afford the outlay, buy it today.
