We’re now a month and a half away from Black Friday. Before you ask when it is – it’s on the 26th of November, 2021. 

Black Friday is known for the fantastic sales and discounts that are announced nationwide. In the UK, Black Friday is the precursor to the crazy Christmas shopping bonanza. Most people start saving early to buy gifts for loved ones and friends in advance and at much lower prices than usual.

Black Friday 2021 will be doubly important since the Covid-19 pandemic put a halt to all the fun things like shopping, gatherings, going out, and meeting up in 2020. 

Most people feel they can get great deals only on Black Friday. However, Black Friday discounts, offers, cashback, points, and more start as early as October end.

Last year, there were online discounts, free deliveries, and cashback coupons to be used during virtual checkouts as against brick and mortar stores, malls, and more announcing their Black Friday deals and enticing shoppers with great sales. 

In 2020, discounts were announced as early as mid-October, with Amazon, Currys, and Argos kicking off huge sales ahead of schedule.

Experts believe one of the reasons for jumping the announcement game and extending the Black Friday deals could be due to the overall pandemic situation. However, this year also retailers seem to be geared up for large purchases.

How To Get The Best Deals For Black Friday?

Most online retailers run huge discounts and offers. Many times the products are usually clubbed with others. If this interests you, then getting an overall deal might be in your best interest. 

If you’re only shopping online and are getting everything home-delivered, it is best to take time, check the same product on two-three different black Friday deal sites, and then place an order for the lowest one. 

Another way to shop efficiently is to add the items in the wish list or product basket, note the total, and then check the price drop in the products with the discount.

Most people do not have enough time to sit and do a comparative analysis of all prices. It is best to add everything you need and just check if there is a substantial discount added to the basket.
