Just because a product is in a Black Friday sale, doesn’t mean you can’t find it, or something similar, cheaper elsewhere. Always shop around before you spend your money.

Black Friday falls the day after the American holiday, Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is always on the fourth Thursday of November, so Black Friday is the fourth Friday of the month.

That means that Black Friday 2020 will be on Frriday November 27, although some retailers release deals earlier.

Currys launches its own version of Black Friday during deals, the Black Tag event, both online and in-store.
