Everything you need to know about the Aldi Black Friday 2021 verkoop, insluitend wanneer dit begin, die beste aanbiedings en ons wenke vir kundige inkopies
The countdown to Swart Vrydag – the sale which is undoubtedly the biggest shopping event of the year – is officially on. Just like last year, we’re hoping to see prices slashed across tegnologie, skoonheid, huis toestelle and more at some of our favourite stores.
Though the event may have got its start as a one-day sale in the US to mark the beginning of the festive shopping season, it has since spread worldwide where many retailers joined in on the weekend-long event, concluding on Kuber Maandag.
Year-on-year increasingly more retailers are taking part in the sale but, while the likes of Amazon, John Lewis en Argos are veterans to the event, this is only the second year that Aldi has taken part. Egter, just because the budget supermarket is still relatively new to it all, don’t rule it out.
During 2020’s event Aldi gave shoppers some amazing deals and discounts, slashing the prices of big-ticket items such as the Nintendo Switch en Apple AirPods, along with a collection of own-brand favourites. So, it’s fair to say, we’re expecting big things from the retailer this year, ook.
To make sure you don’t miss a deal or discount, we’ll be bringing you all the details throughout the 2021 verkoop. For now though, here’s everything you need to know ahead of the mammoth event, as well as what you could be looking forward to from Aldi.
Wat is Black Friday?
Tradisioneel, Black Friday is a one-day, in-store shopping event to mark the start of the Christmas season after Thanksgiving in the US. Egter, in 2010, Amazon first brought the sale to our shores.
The event really gained traction in 2013 wanneer Asda introduced its first Black Friday sale. En nou, many UK retailers have followed suit, offering huge discounts on big-name brands such as appel, Dyson, en Samsung as well own-brand products both in-store and online.
For our extensive list of retailers that took part in Black Friday 2020, you can read our guide hier – make sure to bookmark it too, because once brands start talking about the sales later in the year, we will be updating it regularly with all the latest discounts.
Wat is die geskiedenis van Black Friday?
The concept of Black Friday dates back to the Fifties when shops in Philadelphia decided to discount products to mark the beginning of the festive shopping season.
Egter, the term itself is believed to have been first coined in the Sixties when police officers described the traffic congestion after Thanksgiving as “Black Friday”.
It was only in the Noughties though – as the internet and social media took off and videos of American shoppers raiding shelves for discounted TV's, speelgoed en tegnologie went viral – that the sale became more well known. Now the sale is just as much of a major fixture in the UK with more and more retailers joining the event every year, both in-store and online.
Wanneer is Black Friday 2021?
Hierdie jaar, the event falls on 26 November with deals dropping throughout the whole weekend, afsluit op Cyber Monday op 29 November.
That being said, in 2020 Amazon launched its early-bird deals more than a month before Black Friday itself. Discounts began on 15 Oktober, and we’re expecting the retailer to follow a similar timeline for this year’s event.
Wat is Cyber Monday?
Traditionally the online day of the event, wanneer, historically, online sales peak. As it’s very much all an online event now, Cyber Monday is the final day of the sale.
It’s also worth noting too, that it is the last mass sale event before the Christmas period and January sales, so you won’t want to miss out.

What were the best Aldi Black Friday deals last year?
In 2020, Aldi offered some of the most competitive Black Friday prices we’ve ever seen. Considering it was the brand’s first time getting involved, that’s a pretty impressive feat indeed.
The retailer had an impressive range of products up for grabs, with discounts on everything from tech and homeware to health and beauty, and toys. Not only this, but it had deals across a range of its own-brand items and big household names too – Nintendo, appel, Samsung, en Lego, were just some of those featured in 2020.
We’ve been keeping a close eye on the Nintendo Switch during 2021, and it featured heavily throughout our Amazon Prime Day coverage. In last year’s Black Friday sale, you could save just shy of £50 on the original Nintendo Switch (£279.99, Argos.co.uk) at Aldi – the lowest and most competitive price we saw on the console during the event – and we expect to see similar discounts on it this November.
You may not expect it, but Aldi is pretty up to speed with other tech offerings too. In 2020, Aldi’s sale featured Apple AirPods (£119, Johnlewis.com) at their lowest ever price, as one of the supermarket’s “special buys”. Slashing their cost by a huge £110, you could bag a pair of the popular earbuds for just £89.99. This was the cheapest price we saw on Airpods over the entire weekend – until then, the lowest price we had found was on Amazon for £124.49.
Laas jaar, shoppers could bag a smart fitness watch (£19.99, Aldi.co.uk) that came complete with a heart rate monitor, pedometer, sleep tracking and was dust and waterproof. Basies, it could do everything a more expensive smartwatch could but without the steep price tag. There were also offers on speakers, including the Reka portable Bluetooth speaker (£ 24,99, Aldi.co.uk) which could easily rival pricier models.
We also saw great deals across spel gear, including this Ture RGB gaming mouse (£9.99, Aldi.co.uk), which our reviewer said makes “your gaming experience as smooth as possible”. “It’s designed with a metal bottom, so you’ll always be ahead of your competitors,” they explained. And there was a matching headset (£ 14,99, Aldi.co.uk) to go alongside it too.
Intussen, in health and beauty, Aldi offered this Philips beard and stubble trimmer (£ 49,99, Amazon.co.uk) for £29.99 which was 40 per cent off its regular retail price.
If you can’t wait until the big day, there are a bunch of great offers in Aldi’s clearance sale right now – including a nearly 30 per cent saving on this dog harness (was £8.99, now £6.49, Aldi.co.uk) for your furry friend, or an Xplora smart fitness watch (was £39.99, now £27.99, Aldi.co.uk) for a fraction of the usual cost.
