Black Friday quick UK retailer links:
Woah, the Apple MacBook has £200 off in this Cyber sale
Apple MacBook air, M1, 2020, 16GB RAM, 256GB storage: Was £1,199, now £1,149, Very.co.uk
Very has slashed the price of the 2020 M1 MacBook air with 16GB of RAM by £50 in its Cyber Monday sale. The laptop featured in our round-up of the best high-end laptops for great performance, with our tester saying that it was “remarkably lightweight and slim, an effect made all the more appealing thanks to a tapered design – at its thinnest point, it’s 0.41cm thick”. And the new version is the first to use Apple’s own M1 chip instead of an Intel processor, meaning it’s breathtakingly fast too.

The discounted Nintendo Switch OLED bundle you need
Nintendo Switch OLED bundle with ‘Paper Mario: The Origami King’: Was £347.98, now £319.99, Game.co.uk
While we haven’t found many deals on the standalone Nintendo Switch OLED, this bundle deal from Game is an excellent Cyber Monday buy if you’re looking to bag Nintendo’s newest console. You’re essentially buying the Nintendo Switch OLED at full price, but then getting Paper Mario: The Origami King for a tenner. That’s a £28 saving off the game’s original price, and you get to play it on that lush new vivid 7in screen. “Its colourful display, better build quality and bigger storage makes buying the Nintendo Switch OLED a no-brainer,” our writer said in their review of the console. “New to Nintendo? Buy the Switch OLED console and never look back.”
Of course that’s not the only deal we’ve got on Nintendo Switch consoles, check out the rest here:

Cook up a storm and save on the Ninja air fryer
Ninja Foodi 7.5l multi pressure cooker air fryer dehydrator: Was £229.99, now £178.99, Argos.co.uk
Steam, saute, grill, bake – is there anything this nifty appliance can’t do? Landing a spot in our best pressure cookers edit, our tester was wowed by its baking function, and appreciated how easy the pressure cooker was to use, adding: “With an easy turn dial control, LED screen and countdown timer, it was a cinch to produce a melt-in-the-mouth beef casserole in half an hour.” They did note that the price was a little steep, but with £51 off right now, the Argos Cyber Monday sale has seen to that.
Will Zara have a Cyber Monday sale?
Sadly, Zara’s Cyber week sale was a fleeting treat. It offered up to 40 per cent off selected items from Thursday 25 November to Friday 26 November as part of its Black Friday event.
But, it’s not all bad news because you can still bag a bargain on high street fashion brands. Urban Outfitters, for example, has added a further 20 per cent off selected lines with the code FLASH20, including on this House Of Sunny reflections blue peggy cardigan (was £98, now £62.40, Urbanoutfitters.com).

The laptop appears in our round-up of the best laptops of 2021, and in our full review our tester was suitably impressed by its performance, describing the device as “as near-to-perfect a Windows experience as you can find”.

When does Black Friday end? When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Black Friday – aka the biggest and best shopping event of the year – was on Friday 26 November, the day after Thanksgiving. Although the sale technically ends at midnight on Black Friday itself, many deals carried on over the course of the weekend into today, which is known as Cyber Monday.
The one-day shopping event was named as such because, historically, online sales peaked on this day, at the start of the Christmas shopping period.
Unlike Black Friday, which sees some retailers launch offers throughout the entire month of November, Cyber Monday lasts for 24 hours only, meaning the sale will come to an end at 11.59pm tonight.
So, to make sure you’re in with a chance of bagging the best bargain possible, read our expert-curated guide of the best Cyber Monday deals:
