The best Black Friday deals 2017: all of the best remaining deals

Update: Black Friday is now over - but there's still one last day of deals! Check out all the best Cyber Monday 2017 deals before they're all gone.

Black Friday 2017 may technically be over now but many of the best deals are still available as we roll into the weekend, so it's still well worth having a look through our list of the best remaining offers.

We've seen loads of truly tempting phone deals on products including the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone 7, 8 and X as well as 100GB for £20 SIM only deal from Three and some SIM free options too - most of these you can still get.

PlayStation VR, PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch were three of the most popular products all day with many of the best bundles being snapped up in just a few seconds.

Black Friday 2017 itself was expected to be the biggest day of spending the country has ever seen with UK shoppers expected to buy £10.1bn worth of goods by the time Monday ends. That would be about enough to buy a new PS4 for every man, woman and child in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

TechRadar has received record traffic all day so we can confirm there's been more interest in Black Friday than ever before. So take a look at the best of the remaining Black Friday deals as we head towards Cyber Monday 2017.

Amazon Echo Dot: down to £34.99 (normally £49.99)
The Echo Dot also gained a highly favourable report card from our experts - it's a smaller speaker compared to the Echo but it's brilliant if you want to 'Alexafy' an existing speaker/hi-fi system. The Echo Dot has never been cheaper.

Black Friday is always the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving in the US - this year that falls this coming Friday - the 22nd November - and is the day when most retailers put on a spectacular day of bargainous deals in all categories from phones, tablets and laptops to shoes, fridges and clothes.

Black Friday is now so big that instead of lasting one day, it's a 'deals season' which tends to span from roughly the middle of November until at least the end of Cyber Monday - the Monday after the day itself. In the US, Cyber Monday is the bigger day with sales this year expected to top last year's $3.45bn.

Amazon's Black Friday campaign kicked off this morning with a range of deals across many categories including tech. It's running ten days of deals in total, ending on Sunday 26th before Cyber Monday takes over.

Currys has also launched a batch of 'Why Wait?' early Black Friday deals for you to have a browse. Argos has launched a Black Friday deals page but in truth there are very few deals to get excited about at Argos so far. John Lewis is just quietly price matching in the background but we're expecting both of those sites to come to the party from this weekend onwards.

We've looked through thousands of deals and chosen what we think are the best Black Friday deals so far. We'll keep the page up to date with all the latest offers so stick with TechRadar and we'll navigate Black Friday together!

As a sales event, Black Friday is bettered only by Singles Day (11th November annually), the day on which young people in China celebrate singledom through the medium of copious spending at Alibaba.com.

For Black Friday, and indeed Black November, this year we will be keeping our fingers on the pulse of the UK market throughout the month, bringing you all of the best deals on the best products from the best retailers. We're expecting to see the big sites like Amazon, Currys and Argos launch deals earlier than ever before - so don't be surprised if Currys' Blag Tag deals start in hte next week or so!

On Black Friday weekend last year, adults in the UK specifically spent an average of £117 each. That's a total spend of £6.45 billion – enough to buy every British man, woman and child a Fire TV Stick, a pair of glasses that make your eyes think you're on magic mushrooms and 16 of those awesome twangy things that also act as door stops. 

It’s actually ironic that Black Friday drives so much traffic to websites like TechRadar, because the term used to refer to more traditional types of traffic – the name was first used by US police to describe the traffic gridlock that occurred when everybody hit the shops at the same time before the holidays.

Black Friday still happens on the high street, but increasingly the best deals – and the most shoppers – are online. And that's why every year TechRadar rounds up all of the best deals, so you can find the best-value offers on the nicest stuff and be confident you're getting the best price.

What's more, we'll be bringing you exclusive deals on top mobiles phones like the iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel with prices cheaper than at any other point of the year - these deals will be exclusively available to TechRadar readers so stay with us if you're looking for a new mobile phone this November and December!

When is Black Friday and what is it exactly?

Black Friday is always the Friday that immediately follows the Thanksgiving holiday in the US – so Black Friday 2017 will take place on November 24. No matter that the UK doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, Black Friday is now a global phenomenon.

Black Friday – and increasingly by the year, Black November – is now the starting gun for the Christmas shopping season, and it’s famous for what retailers call 'doorbusters' – deals so good that shoppers will try and break down the front doors of stores to get at them.

Inevitably that means it’s also slightly infamous, with each year delivering a new selection of YouTube delights depicting keen shoppers slugging it out for the right to claim a limited number of probably-awful but definitely super-cheap 4K TVs.

Things got so bad on Black Friday three years ago that ASDA, Walmart’s UK brand and the firm largely responsible for bringing Black Friday to the UK, made the decision to not 'do' Black Friday at all. That proved to be an expensive decision.

By comparison, that same year John Lewis UK reported that its Black Friday performance returned the highest weekly sales in the company’s 150-year history. Check out our best John Lewis Black Friday deals 2017 hub for more information on that.

So this November, expect all the main retailers like Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Currys and ASOS to be running deals across every range of products. Black Friday is traditionally the home of deals on electricals, clothing and shoes, but you can also expect hot promotions on everything else from mobile phone contracts to VPN services and broadband subscriptions.

The impact of Black Friday in the UK

Black Friday has transformed the Christmas shopping season, for better and for worse.

James Miller, senior retail consultant at Experian Marketing Services, told the BBC that “there is little doubt Black Friday has dramatically changed the way people shop in the run-up to Christmas and has created an expectation of deep discounts that arguably did not exist before,” while a report by LCP Consulting found that nearly one-third of UK and US retailers believe that Black Friday is “unprofitable and unsustainable."

Before Black Friday became a big deal, the run-up to Christmas was a great period for retailers: we’d buy loads of presents for others and for ourselves, and retailers would make huge piles of money. Then Black Friday happened, and all of a sudden many of us were browsing the bargains for the presents to put in Santa’s sack. Money spent on deeply discounted products in November is money that won’t be spent on more profitable products in December.

According to research by Verdict Retail, there is “no evidence” that Black Friday “stimulated demand”: Black Friday is essentially a black hole that sucks in a big part of people’s pre-Christmas shopping. We buy more but pay less for it.

According to Mike Watkins of Nielsen UK, “Whilst Nielsen analysis shows that Black Friday in November 2014 did not deliver incremental food sales it did serve to kick start what was the slowest start to Christmas trading in over 10 years. Perhaps that’s the primary objective in these changing times.”

Gary Booker, CMO at Dixons Retail, told Marketing Week that Black Friday negatively affects purchases in the following weeks: “It takes sales out of what would have been key early weeks in December,” he said, and multiple reports show that since Black Friday has taken off in the UK we’re spending less money on Boxing Day, our previous favourite for bargain hunting.

That means retailers need to think very carefully about Black Friday: they can discount in the hope they’ll make up for the lower margins with higher volumes, or they can decide not to take part in Black Friday and potentially lose sales to rivals who do.

The deals on Black Friday 2017 won't be so crazy

Black Friday 2014 was particularly silly in the UK: while grown men and women knocked each other over to try and get cheap Polaroid TVs in supermarkets, men and women knocked over loads of websites too. Many retailers weren’t prepared for the volume of online traffic and their servers couldn’t cope.

Other firms that hadn’t thought Black Friday was a particularly big deal tried to get in on the action. The result felt rather like some firms were running around with a pricing gun, discounting whatever they spotted.

Black Friday 2015 was very different. Websites coped just fine - although some raised eyebrows with “oh! We’re so busy you’ll have to queue!” warnings that seemed more about marketing than reflecting actual demand - and retailers had a strategy in place. Where previous Black Fridays were crazy, Black Friday 2015 was calm. The difference? Planning.

Retailers knew what to expect, had struck deals with suppliers well in advance and approached Black Friday like any other shopping event. There were still bargains to be had, but it certainly didn’t feel like bargain-conscious customers were getting one over on panicking retailers.

Black Friday 2016 was different again: for many big-name retailers, instead of everything happening on one day, their sales were spread over an entire week from the Monday before Black Friday to Cyber Monday, the Monday immediately after. Cyber Monday used to be a separate event, the day everybody panicked and thought “oh no! It’s nearly Christmas and I haven’t bought any presents!” before visiting Amazon on their work PCs. But in 2016 it was just another part of Black Friday Deals Week.

As Experian’s Richard Jenkings told the BBC, “The Black Friday promotions at the end of November are the start of a longer, more drawn-out peak season, which begins with most of the activity online and then moves in-store as we get closer and closer to Christmas day.”

What to expect from Black Friday 2017:

The last few Black Friday deals periods saw many retailers taking baby steps, but in 2017 they’re all grown up. That means they’ve been poring over their spreadsheet models since the last Black Friday, and they know exactly what they’ll be doing this year. And the first thing they’ll be doing is trying to beat Black Friday by starting their deals early. What started as Black Friday weekend became Black Friday week, and this year we expect some big-name retailers to start discounting long before that.

Early discounting makes sense for many reasons: it spreads the load on their websites and shops, and more importantly it means the news of their deals won’t be buried amid the avalanche of Black Friday announcements. So keep your eyes peeled - and keep visiting our deals homepage - from early November, and maybe even earlier than that.

Something we saw a lot of in 2016 and expect to see even more of in 2017 is a sliding scale of discounting: we noticed deals got bigger and better as the month progressed. That’s likely to recur in 2017, with reasonable deals at the beginning of the Black Friday period and more exciting but limited quantity deals on Black Friday itself. The emphasis will be on the more expensive products where retailers can cut prices but still make a decent profit.

Black Friday 2017 FAQ: what it is, when it happens and where to get the best deals

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving. It’s a day when retailers offer big discounts to kick-start the holiday shopping season so it's a great time to buy phones, consoles, shoes and clothes.

When is Black Friday 2017?

Black Friday 2017 will be on Friday, 24 November.

When is Cyber Monday 2017?

Cyber Monday 2017 will be on Monday, 27 November. It's another day of deals - specifically online - though it's bigger in America.

What is Black Friday deals week?

It’s the week that includes Black Friday. Retailers are increasingly offering deals before and after Black Friday itself so they stand out from the crowd.  

Are Black Friday deals real?

Yes, although in some cases the discounts have been negotiated well in advance with suppliers. As with any sales you’ll see a mix of genuine bargains, discounted end-of-line stock and mysterious things found in the back of a warehouse somewhere. In 2016, consumer magazine Which? accused retailers of some pretty dodgy behaviour. 

Where can I find the best Black Friday deals?

Right here on TechRadar of course! We scour all the top retailers’ Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals so that you don’t have to - and we tell you whether the deals are worth getting excited about too. Whether it’s a 4K HDR OLED TV or an Xbox One controller, if it’s discounted we’ll have the details here. 

How do I get the best Black Friday 2017 deals?

Know what you want, know what you can afford to spend and know the market: you’ll often spot retailers charging higher than usual prices in October so they can offer amazing discounts on Black Friday. Pay particular attention to real prices, not RRPs: TVs are particularly bad for this, with sets whose RRP is eleventy billion pounds routinely selling for five hundred quid. Sites such as CamelCamelCamel and PriceSpy enable you to tell if you’re looking at a legitimate bargain or some timed tomfoolery.

It’s also a very good idea to be flexible: for example, if you fancy a Sony 4K TV then think about the features you want rather than a specific model number: the BRV123ABD54-88C-9218-B may not be discounted on Black Friday, but an almost identical set with the specification you want probably will be.

Can I get cashback on Black Friday deals?

Sometimes, yes. Your debit card or credit card may offer cashback on purchases, and sites such as Quidco often offer cashback for new customers of big-name online shops. It’s definitely worth looking into, not just for Black Friday but for any online shopping. 

Am I protected when I buy on Black Friday?

Yes. In the UK, anything you buy from a company online is covered by a wealth of consumer protection legislation including the Consumer Contracts regulations, which give you the same rights as with any other online purchasing. 

How can I stay safe on Black Friday?

Black Friday brings out the scammers as well as the sellers, so be wary of unsolicited emails or links to deals on social media no matter how legitimate they look: anything asking for card details or login details is a scam. Phishing sites do big business on Black Friday, so be extra suspicious - and if you’re on a PC, make sure your security software is up to date. Many suites automatically block known scam sites.
