The Black Friday tradition started across the pond in the United States as an exciting shopping event where big-name brands dropped the prices of big-ticket items dramatically across the board.
It was an Amazon Black Friday sale in 2010 that brought the tradition to the attention of UK shoppers, and year-by-year the sales have grown in both size and popularity. Today, Black Friday UK offers incredible discounts on a huge range of items from some of the nation’s biggest brands.

When does Black Friday start in 2021?
Black Friday officially starts on 26 November 2021, but loads of top retailers start dropping discounts earlier. Last year, top retailers like Samsung, Tesco and Boots all started Black Friday sales two weeks early—so it's worth keeping your eyes peeled throughout November.
What about Cyber Monday?
Black Friday officially starts and ends on 26 November 2021, but most brands will have deals all weekend long, through ‘til the end of Cyber Monday on 29 November. Cyber Monday is the best time for deals on tech, with even further reductions for the deals that didn't sell out on Black Friday.
Are there any Black Friday food delivery deals?
Yes! Last year, we bagged 25% off Deliveroo orders and 50% off at Domino's over Black Friday weekend. Make sure you have app notifications turned on so you'll be alerted about flash discounts and free delivery deals.
Does Amazon do Black Friday?
Yes! Amazon has its own savings extravaganza, Amazon Prime Day, but that doesn’t stop the tech giant participating in Black Friday. Amazon’s Black Friday sales usually start much earlier than the official sale date—the Amazon 2021 Black Friday deals started on 4 October.
Does Apple do Black Friday sales?
Yes! Apple has taken part in Black Friday every year since 2016—but it’s a little different to other Black Friday offers. Instead of money-off discounts, you’ll get free gifts and free Apple Store gift cards with purchase. Other retailers like Currys, Amazon and JD Williams have all offered discounts on Apple products in previous Black Friday sales, too.
