Svart fredag 2021 is almost here – we’ve found the best early deals to shop now, including TVs, vacuums and laptops from Currys, Veldig, Amazon, AO og mer
The countdown to Black Friday is on and with just two days to go until the main event we’ve already seen hundreds of early deals from keen-bean retailers such as Amazon, Currys, Veldig, John Lewis og Argos. There are thousands of discounts to be had across a range of categories – from teknisk til hvitevarer og skjønnhet – and thankfully we at IndyBest are here to bring you the best offers as they drop.
While the sales event originated in the US as a way to kick-start the jul shopping season the day after Thanksgiving, it has since made its way across the pond and is no longer just a one-day bonanza. Samtidig som Boots became the first major retailer to kick off its Black Friday event til 2021 på 1 november, plenty more have since followed suit, gjelder også Amazon, which is in the midst of 20 whole days of wallet-friendly offers in the run-up to the big day.
Some of the top offers we’ve seen so far include discounts on a range of products from tech juggernaut Apple, such as the iPhone 13 pro (was £71 per month, now £35.50 per month, Three.co.uk), Apple AirPods pro (was £239, nå £199, Amazon.co.uk) and the Apple Watch series 6 (was £409, now £309, Amazon.co.uk). Andre steder, gamers can already snap up the Nintendo Switch (was £329.98, now £298.99, Amazon.co.uk) for £30 less than usual, while fitness fans can save a huge £300 on the popular Peloton bike plus (was £2,295, now £1,995, Onepeloton.co.uk).
Despite all the action, there are still plenty of deals to come and we think bargain hunters can expect offers on a whole host of big-ticket items including bærbare datamaskiner, TVer, smartphones og ereaders as we approach the 26 november.
To help you stay up to date with all the very latest information on the event, we’ve created this comprehensive guide as your go-to resource for Black Friday 2021. Here are the best deals available to shop right now, and the answers to all your questions about the event.

As with any sales event, we’d also suggest making a shopping list beforehand, checking the RRP of any products you’re looking for, so you know it’s a real deal, and reading the retailer’s returns policy if you’ve not shopped there before.
