Black Friday Deals 2021
It's Black Friday, which means you'll see deals from almost every retailer - both good and bad.
On this page, you'll see a roundup of some of the best deals you can find, as well as what your favourite retailers are offering. You can find some analysis too as to how good each deal is.
Of course, make sure you don't get sucked into the hype of the day, and stick to a list if you wanted to buy something.
Prices may change throughout the day too, so do your own checks and price comparisons to make sure it's the cheapest price.
Whether it's a Nintendo Switch, an iPad or an Amazon Echo, here are some of the most searched for products and the cheapest place to find them:
Amazon Products (Eg, Echo Dot, Fire TV etc)
If you're looking for any Amazon products like smart speakers, Black Friday should be one of the cheapest times to get them.
Don't automatically assume that the cheapest place to go is Amazon however. In years past retailers like John Lewis have undercut its rivals on price.
Without further ado, here are the cheapest places for your Amazon items:
Echo Dot (3rd Generation) - £18.99 (Norm: £39.99)
Also includes 6 months free Amazon Music subscription - Found on Amazon here

Amazon Fire TV Stick - £19.99 (Norm: £39.99)
The newest version of the Amazon Fire TV Stick is currently the cheapest it has been since release.
You can also get it as part of a bundle with an Echo Dot 3rd Gen, with both costing £29.98 on Amazon.
Nintendo Switch Consoles & Bundles
The Nintendo Switch looks to be the hottest console this year, with many retailers offering discounts on it.
There will be several offers for the console only or part of a bundle deal with included games. Here are the best deals so far:
Nintendo Switch Lite Console Bundles - £160 (Norm £199)
The prices of the Nintendo Switch Lite have just dropped at Asda to £160 (Norm £199). This is currently the cheapest price it's ever dropped to.
This bundle includes Animal Crossing New Horizons & 3 month online membership.
Nintendo Switch (Console Only) - £230 (Norm £279.99)
You can find a Nintendo Switch for £230 at most Morrisons stores nationwide. Stock may be limited.

The cheapest place to buy online is currently at Argos for the same bundle at £259.99
Apple Products (Eg, AirTags, Macbooks etc)
Apple items very rarely have discounts, but Black Friday is one of the times of the year you can find them.
You won't see any amazing deals, but any discount on these items is a bonus. Here are the best ones so far:
- Apple AirTag 4 pack - £84.99 at Appliances Direct (Norm £99)

You can also find an offer from Apple themselves on Black Friday - getting you gift cards when you purchase a product. See below for full details.
Dyson Products (Eg, Vacuum Cleaners, Hair Straighteners etc)
There are many different products in the Dyson range, and Black Friday is usually a good time to find them discounted.
From everything seen so far, there is only one product matching the cheapest price they've ever been. Everything else has not moved on price. We'll update with more if deals start to pop up.
- Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum - £199 at Curry's (Norm £299)
Xbox & Playstation Consoles & Bundles
Usually games console bundles are usually a big hitter on Black Friday, but for Xbox and Playstation bundles there are very few deals.
The next generation consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), are still not in stock. It's not out of the question that stock may be released, however discounts will be unlikely.
Here are the Xbox & Playstation console deals we've spotted so far:
Xbox One Console Bundles - £249.99 (norm £249.99)
There has currently been no change on Xbox One Console bundle prices.
Most bundles include an Xbox One S including Rocket League & Fortnite for £249.99 (though both of those games are free to download on the Xbox store anyway).
Xbox One Games & Accessories
You can find a sale on the Microsoft store for a variety of games. This includes Fifa 22 for £35.99 (digital only).
If you wanted physical games - Tesco have a sale on a number of new released, including Fifa 22 for £35 (in store only).
Playstation 4 Console Bundles - £249.99 (norm £249.99)
There has currently been no change on Playstation Consoles or bundle prices.
Most places are selling the Playstation Slim console only for £249.99.
Playstation Games & Accessories
You can get a slight discount on a 12 month Playstation Plus subscription - £29.85 at ShopTo when you use the code EXTRATEN.
There are also physical games in store at Tesco including Fifa 22 for £35.
Playstation 5 & Xbox Series X Stock Update
There are currently no consoles in stock. We'll update this page if any are released.
Ring Doorbell & Other Smart Home Devices
Ring Doorbells always discounted on Black Friday, and you can find some good deals on your smart home tech.
Indoor security cameras are also discounted, as home security is becoming more popular. Here are the best deals:
- Ring Video Doorbell 1080p - £34 at Amazon & Argos
- Ring Video Doorbell 2nd Generation (including free Echo Dot 3rd Gen) - £67 at Amazon
- Ring Alarm 2nd Generation 5 Piece Security Set - £129 at Curry's
Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset
The Oculus Quest 2 headset has seen no reduction in price since its release - so we've been keeping an eye out for deals as Damien wants one!
There is an offer on the Oculus this Black Friday however, where you can get a £50 gift card when you buy one for £299. Effectively this drops the price to £249.
This is a deal at a number of retailers, and depending where you buy it from, depends on the gift card you get back. For example buying through Amazon gets you an Amazon Gift Card, John Lewis gift card for John Lewis etc.
Here are the retailers doing this deal. Be sure to check the T&Cs of each one, as some are different.
If you wanted to check out the offers at a specific shop, here are some of the round ups of the best deals they have.
Amazon - 20% Off Amazon Warehouse & Lightning Deals
Amazon is one of the first retailers you think of when it comes to Black Friday - often matching or bettering prices from Prime Day.
All of the Amazon own brand devices are reduced to some of the lowest prices seen (see the Amazon Products above for a full run down).
Aside from that, you'll be seeing a few other deals on the retail giant's website:
- 'Lightning Deals' - Limited time offers on random items, with new ones released every 15 minutes.
- 20% Extra Off Amazon Warehouse - Amazon's returns section, where you can get a discount on returned items. Save even more with 20% off.

Apple - Up To £160 In Gift Cards With Purchase
If you're buying an Apple product, you can get an Apple gift card worth up to £160 along with your order.
This is a very similar offer to Black Friday deals in past years. Obviously the more you spend, the higher the gift card value you'll receive.
Here's a run down of what value gift card you'll receive for each item, when buying through Apple:
£40 Gift Card:
- iPhone 12
- iPhone SE
- Apple Watches
- Apple TV
- Beats Headphones
- Accessories (e.g Apple Pencil)
£80 Gift Card:
- iPad Pro 11"
- iPad Pro 12.9"
- Mac Notebook
- Mac Mini
£160 Gift Card:

Argos - Toys 50% Off + 20% Off Code Stack, Price Matching Other Brands
Argos for Black Friday seem to be price matching other retailers on a variety of items including Echo Dots, Ring Doorbells and more. It's a shame, as Argos used to be one of the places that had exclusive deals.
One thing that does stand out this year however is its toy sale. Currently they have up to 50% selected toys, and a 20% off code which can be used on top.
It means that toys like Lego, Play-Doh and Chad Valley are all even cheaper. Use the code TOYS20 to get the bonus 20% off.
Asos - Up to 80% Off Clothes
This year, Asos is offering up to 80% off everything - which is the best offer that they have released on a Black Friday sale. Last year - it only went up to 70%.
This doesn't mean that everything is 80% off, and there are likely only few items that are - but it still makes it a good time to shop there if you needed a new wardrobe.
See what's included in the Asos sale here.
Boots - Discounts On Skincare, Perfume & More
Boots have never been a huge player on Black Friday, and this year is much of the same.
Some of the 'top deals' listed on the top of their website are a bit underwhelming, with promotions on Fitbits and electric toothbrushes which are still at similar pricing to before.
There are some good deals to be had however on skincare and perfume.
For the Boots brands No7 and Soap & Glory, it's the cheapest time to pick up a gift set as a Christmas present right now. Here are a few of the stronger deals:
- No7 Beauty Gifting Bundle - £50 (Norm £195.40)
- Soap & Glory Advent Calendar - £31.50 (Norm £42)
- Mugler 'Angel' fragrance (50ml) - £36 (Norm £60)
The Boots Black Friday offers will last until Monday 29th November - with the majority both in store and online.
Halfords - £10 Voucher On £50 Spend + Black Friday Deals
There's a double deal at Halfords this Black Friday - with money off items now and later.
On top of its deals, if you spend £50 or more, you'll get a £10 E-voucher to use at Halfords with no minimum spend. You'll receive this voucher through email on 9th December and have until 24th December to use it.
The deals themselves at Halfords aren't wowing - but if you need things for your car, it might be a good time to get it. Here's a few deals of note:

Morrisons - Cheap Nintendo Switch, 75p Chocolate Orange & Half Price Breakfast
One of the surprises this year for a range of decent offers is Morrisons. There's a nice mixture of deals and most are quite strong.
It also includes probably the best one I've seen this whole Black Friday season that I'm sure everyone can get behind... 75p Terry's Chocolate Orange!

Nike - Up To 50% Off + 25% Off Code
For clothes and shoes at Nike - you can get money off both its sale and non sale items. This is usually one of the best times of the year to shop at Nike.
There are items in its sale which is up to around 50% off - plus there's a code for 25% off on top if you use the code GAME21.
You'll need to have a Nike Membership account in order to get the 25% off code - but it's free to sign up.
As an example, you can get a pair of Nike Air Max 2090 for £77.97 (was £129.95 before discounts).
Lego - Free Holiday Lego Christmas Tree & 20% off
Lego have an offer on for Black Friday which is a nice bonus if you were going to shop there anyway.

myLIMITLESS gets you access to as many films as you like throughout the year - and has been reduced to £115 (was £150).
This works out to about £9.60 a month - which could be the price of just one cinema ticket for a blockbuster movie.

Asda - £160 Nintendo Switch Lite & Other Dud Black Friday Deals
Asda was the place back in the day where there would be a tussle over TVs. Nowadays, more subdued Black Friday sales are what the leading supermarket is used to.
This year - quite a few of the 'deals' advertised can be found cheaper elsewhere. This includes:
- Echo Dot 3rd Gen for £19.99 (cheaper at Amazon - £18.99)
- Google Nest Hub Smart Speaker With Screen for £59.99 (cheaper at Curry's - £54.99)
That being said - there are a few deals which I found that looked good... but it's not for the things you might expect:
- Asda Cheese Meltdown Detroit Style Pizza (662g) - £2.25 (was £4.50)
- Brita Maxtra+ Water Filter cartridges (6 pack) - £15 (was £30)
Maybe not your idea of a Black Friday bargain!
A+ for your pizza and Brita filter cartridges Asda... not for much else. See their full sale here.
Aldi - Not Offering Deals This Black Friday
Last year, Aldi were a good option for deals, but Aldi has confirmed this year that it will not be taking part.
There are deals at rival discount supermarket Lidl however.
Game - £5 Voucher On £50 Spend... But Dud Deals
In years past, the best console bundle deals on Black Friday have been from Game. Its website used to crash over the high volumes of traffic.
This year it's a different story. It could be due to the shortage of consoles - but there are barely any 'deals' being offered.
Today you can get yourself a £5 voucher emailed to you next week if you spend £50+ & can also get a Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle for £259.99 (cheaper at Tesco in store).
Other deals are not marking leading, including its consoles and games - all can be found cheaper elsewhere.

This includes flights from London Gatwick, 10 nights hotel at a 5 star resort and all food and drink paid for.
