There’s cordless power for ‘up to 44 minutes’ (realistically more like 10-15 minutes on the higher power settings that you’ll actually use), and the option of adding a second battery, and/or a ‘Pet Power Brush’ attachment for your dog, cat or other domesticated animal.View Deal

Le Creuset 3-Ply Stainless Steel Saucepans and Frying Pan Set | £290 | Was £459 | Save £169

So here we have a set of 2 saucepans (18cm and 20cm, with lids), a 14cm milk pan and 24cm frying pan. The latter two are lined with Le Creuset’s brilliant non-stick, which is, at least according to John Lewis, ‘tough enough for metal utensils’ (we’d recommend wood or silicone, and will stand there wincing if we see you using metal).View Deal

Amazon Black Friday deals: when does Amazon’s Black Friday sale begin?

Black Friday deals Amazon

Amazon always offers an amazing, top-tier selection of Black Friday deals, and 2018 has been confirmed as its biggest ever sale, with deals already dropping every day.

Amazon’s Black Friday 2018 UK deals event, dubbed the “Amazon Black Friday Sale”, begins at 00:00AM on Friday 16th of November, and lasts right the way through to Sunday the 25th of November at 23:59pm.

In this time window Amazon’s Black Friday Deals Store will be open, with products across every category receiving crazy Black Friday discounts.

A steady stream of Amazon “Deals of the Day” will also drop every 24 hours and, excitingly, Amazon has confirmed that there will also be thousands upon thousands of “Lightning Deals” dropping every day, too.

Lightning deals are special limited time and stock deals that, as you would expect from the name, sell out very, very quickly indeed. New Lightning Deals will land every 5 minutes, though, meaning that providing you are prepared and ready to strike, you’re almost guaranteed to land the tech you want.

And talking of Lightning Deals, as well as many of the best products in the Amazon Black Friday Deals Store, there’s one sure fire way to guarantee you’re among the first in line to score them… Amazon Prime.

Amazon Black Friday deals: how to get a free Amazon Prime account for Black Friday 2018

Amazon Prime Black Friday deals Lightning deals

Getting a free Amazon Prime account is a crucial step in getting many of the best Black Friday deals.

The truth of the matter is that if you want to be in on the ground floor for many of Amazon’s best Black Friday deals then you need to be an Amazon Prime member.

Amazon Prime members get an exclusive 30-minute early access window to ALL Lightning Deals, which is normally the only way to grab one of the hot products before they all sell out. As such, becoming a member of Amazon Prime is essential for scoring many of the best Black Friday UK deals.

Luckily, Amazon Prime is available on a 30-day free trial, so our advice to you if you don’t have a membership is sign up before Amazon’s Black Friday Deals Store opens, bag the deals you want with preferential access, and then, if you don’t want to continue with the benefits Prime membership delivers, then simply cancel the trial. You won’t have spent a penny, but will have bagged Amazon’s best Black Friday deals.

This year, though, Amazon has already confirmed that it is launching its try before you buy service, dubbed “Prime Wardrobe”. This new service allows Prime members to have Black Friday deal fashion products delivered for no extra cost, where they can then try them on at home, and only actually pay for the items they decide to keep. 

So if you’re looking for Black Friday fashion deals, Prime once more will be an essential weapon in the deal-bagging armoury.

What is the difference between Black Friday 2018 and Cyber Monday 2018?

Black Friday 2018 Cyber Monday 2018 deals

Cyber Monday saw some insane deals last year in gaming, computing, clothing, jewellery, and more.

When Black Friday first started, which was termed thus as it statistically is the day where online sales for Christmas gifts really spikes, there was a clear distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Black Friday tended to see consumer electronics receive huge discounts and sales, while Cyber Monday’s focus was more on clothes and jewellery.

Now, however, the distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is basically non-existent, with crazy deals and discounts on all product categories taking place not just on both days, but also either side of them, too.

Grey Thursday, for example, is the Thursday before Black Friday, and tends to see some top deals drop, while the Saturday and Sunday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is now referred to as the Black Weekend, as many top deals are typically dropped then as well.

In the UK some big retailers like Amazon and Currys PC World also tend to extend their Black Friday deal offerings to the weeks leading up to Black Friday and after Cyber Monday, so to score the absolute best deals you need be switched on both during and around the Black event.

What UK deals to expect on Black Friday 2018

You should expect Black Friday deals to drop in the weeks running up to and after the big event, too.

We’re already hearing plenty of whispers about the hot deal trends for UK shoppers on Black Friday 2018, and the good news is that there is going to be serious discounts on top tech categories. 

These are but a few of the types of deals to expect:

  • Roku has already confirmed it is going BIG this year on Black Friday deals across its products, and across all major UK retailers as well, with Amazon, Argos and Curry’s PC World taking part. Items like the Roku Express and Roku Streaming Stick will be discounted down to half their current price points. As such we’d hold off buying anything Roku for a few more weeks.
  • 4K TVs are going to get monstrous price drops this year, and across top makers like Samsung, Sony and LG, too. We’re already seeing 4K TVs with 40-inch plus screens going for under £500, and during Black Friday 2018 we’re hearing talk of Philips, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba HDR, 4K panels retailing for under £250. These crazy prices are being partly driven by the recent emergence of 8K TV sets.
  • Amazon is, as you would expect, going to heavily discount technology across all its categories, as well as offer incredible discounts on Amazon Prime membership. This year the retailer is going to discount extra hard, though, so the rumours go, mainly because it supposedly had a disappointing Amazon Prime Day event. We’d have T3’s best Amazon deals page on lock.
  • Laptops, which didn’t have a great year deals-wise last year, are going to be discounted like mad, with Curry’s PC World, AO.com, and even John Lewis getting in on the action. The original Surface Book, for example, has been tipped as a product that will have its price slashed.
  • DSLR camera bodies and lenses are set for crazy reductions, as too compact cameras.
  • The PS4 Pro is going to be cheaper than it ever had before, we some outrageous bundle deals incoming, too.
  • Xbox One X, while not slated to be discounted as cheap as the PS4 Pro, is also set to retail for well under £400, even beneath £349 in some rare deals.
  • Mobile phones, bought outright, will see hundreds of pounds knocked off the handsets, while you should expect data-stacked 4G contracts to be available for up 50 per cent less.
  • And, while we’re on phones, the Samsung Galaxy S9, in particular, it is rumoured is going to see some astonishing discount deals for Black Friday 2018. Samsung is reportedly having a bad time of it at the moment shifting its Galaxy Note 9 handset, so the industry expects its summer flagship, the Galaxy S9, to get some insane price drops.
  • Power tools and home appliances are set for a big Black event, too, with whispers indicating that fridges, kettles, lawnmowers, coffee machines, microwaves, ovens, BBQs, sprinklers, hedge trimmers, and more will see weeks of deals landing.
  • Clothing manufactures, including major names like Nike and Adidas, are also set to join the deal-a-thon, with trainers, exercise wear, and style garments heavily discounted.

Black Friday 2018 tips and tricks: how to be prepared

It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the avalanche of deals and offers during the Black event, so being properly prepared and heading into the deal-a-thon with a clear head and a firm idea of what you want to pick up is crucial.

To help you in this we’ve put together this small selection of tips and tricks, which will almost certainly help you have a successful Grey Thursday, Black Friday, Black Weekend, and Cyber Monday 2018.

1. SET UP ALERTS AND SWITCH ON NOTIFICATIONS

You should consider setting up tailored alerts to help you keep on top of the items that are most important to you. Amazon offers notifications that allow you to track price drops on relevant products, while Google Alerts and Twitter Notifications both help you keep an eye on offers across a wider range of retailers.   

It’s also worth following key brands on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as many will promote their best offers across these platforms. Make sure you have push notifications turned on so you can snap these deals up as soon as they are published.

2. CHECK PREVIOUS PRICES

Some Black Friday deals might look fantastic at face value – particularly when listed alongside the RRP or the price the product was first listed at. However, prices can fluctuate and a higher-than-usual pre-sale price can make a deal look better than it really is.

Price tracking websites such as CamelCamelCamel allow users to track a product’s price history on Amazon and will show its most recent price ahead of Black Friday – revealing how good those deals really are.

3. ASSESS STOCK LEVELS

Many online stores offer the ability to check stock levels. Keep a close eye on this and prioritise the items on your list that have lower stock availability so you can lockdown those in-demand products.

4. READ THE SMALL PRINT

As tempting as it might be to speed through to the checkout, do spend a couple of minutes checking the small print before paying. You should look out for specific information on returns policies, as some retailers may offer refunds in a shorter window than usual or refuse refunds entirely, instead offering store credit – which isn’t ideal for those big ticket items like smartphones, laptops and TVs.

5. USE SECURE PAYMENT METHODS

Different payment methods offer different levels of consumer protection. Credit card payments typically give buyers more protection than those made by debit card. It’s worth noting that if you use PayPal or another third party payment service you may lose the protections you might have if you were paying with your credit card.

Once you’ve decided that a deal is legitimate and you’re ready to pay, you’ll want to get through to the checkout as quickly as possible so as not to miss out. You can avoid any delays by registering with retailers you anticipate buying from in advance and setting up a user account – including card details and your billing and delivery addresses – as this will help guarantee a speedy checkout.
