While the 2023 Black Friday deals event might seem like eons away, there's no time like the present to prepare yourself for the shopping extravaganza. Our Black Friday deals guide is taking a look back at last year's event, plus we're covering everything you need to know about the 2023 sale, such as the date, when deals will kick off, and what bargains you can expect.

Analyzing what happened last year can give us a good indicator of what might happen at the 2023 Black Friday sale. While retailers braced for sluggish sales due to inflation, according to Forbes, online sales were actually up 2.3% compared to 2021, with $9.12 billion spent over the holiday weekend. That could be due to retailers offering steep discounts to clear out excess inventory, which wasn't an issue in previous years' sales.

So what were consumers buying? Amazon reports that the most popular sale categories included Home, Fashion, Toys, Beauty, and Amazon devices and stand-out items were the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, Apple AirPods, and the Nintendo Switch.

This year's Black Friday deals event lands on November 24, which means there's plenty of time to prepare, but if you're interested in doing your homework now, our guide is covering what deals you can expect, what retailers offer the best Black Friday sales, and when you can expect offers to launch. We'll update this guide with all the latest Black Friday news as soon as it drops, so make sure to bookmark this page as your one-stop Black Friday 2023 shop.

When is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday 2023 falls on November 24. The actual date shifts, but the day of the week stays the same: it's always the Friday after Thanksgiving.

While Black Friday deals will officially kick off on November 23, based on years past, we can predict that retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will launch early sales. At this year's sale, we saw Black Friday deals popping up as early as October, thanks to Amazon's 2nd Prime Day sale, which launched earlier that month.

What Black Friday deals do we expect to see in 2023?

We can predict what Black Friday deals we'll see at the 2023 sale by looking back at last year's event. Last year's bestselling categories, according to Amazon, included Home, Fashion, Toys, Beauty, and Amazon devices. This matched up with Amazon's top-selling items, like the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, and Apple AirPods. Other popular offers were the Nintendo Switch, LG's C2 OLED TV, Fullstar's vegetable chopper, and the Revlon one-step volumizer hair dryer.

We expect to see the same mix of items on sale during the 2023 Black Friday Deals event, such as Amazon devices, as well as Apple's latest and greatest devices which are revealed in October.

How to get the best Black Friday deals in 2023?

Homework really helps. Some retailers up prices from August through to October so they can offer supposedly amazing discounts on Black Friday, so don’t be fooled by such moves. 

They’re particularly prevalent in expensive consumer electronics such as TVs or laptops with product numbers rather than names, with products that were dropped down to a great bargain price suddenly being pushed back to their MSRP again. 

It’s also a very good idea to be flexible: for example, if you're interested in a Samsung 4K TV it’s best to think about the features you want rather than a specific model number: the BRV553ABD34-82C-9218-X may not be discounted on Black Friday 2023, but an almost identical set with the specification you want probably will be.

So do your research on what matters, and we’ll do our best to give you the right comparison needed.

However, don’t be fooled into thinking that something that looks like a five-star set is the same but cheaper - certain elements (often with regards to screen quality or image processing) won’t be as high quality to achieve that lower price point.

When to shop for the best Black Friday deals?

Early holiday shopping was a smart move for Black Friday 2022, as we saw the best deals were launched in the weeks leading up to the day itself once again this year. When it came to the big day, we were disappointed as there weren't many new offers.

Last year, we noticed best-selling items like the AirPods Pro, the Apple Watch, MacBooks, and Amazon's own devices were out of stock in the run-up to Black Friday proper as folks took advantage of the early low prices. That wasn't entirely the case this time around. Some items sold out, sure, but there were fewer out of stock messages throughout Black Friday overall.

Ultimately, if there was a good offer even in the weeks leading up to Black Friday then you should feel confident that you can take advantage of early Black Friday deals at the big-name online retailers.

Why is it called Black Friday?

Let’s take a history lesson to find how why they call it Black Friday: the first known mention of Black Friday related to this shopping experience was in November 1951, when the journal Factory Management and Maintenance (opens in new tab) used it to describe people calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving so they could have an extra day off work. 

At the same time, US police were using the phrases “Black Friday” and “Black Saturday” to describe the horrendous traffic that occurred at the beginning of the pre-Christmas shopping season. 

In 1961, the local government moved to change the shopping season to “Big Friday” and “Big Saturday,” but it never caught on. The notion that it was the time when retailers moved 'back into the black' was seen far later and clearly an attempt to bring positivity to the term.

Acer Chromebook 315: was $279 now $149 at Walmart
Consider upgrading to this Acer Chromebook 315 if you'd prefer a laptop with a larger screen at a low price.

It's still tough and reasonably light, plus it has a battery life of around 12 hours, so a good choice if you're carrying it around with you all day. (opens in new tab)

The best Black Friday deals: mattresses

Nectar memory foam model (opens in new tab)

Saatva Classic mattress: from $935 at Saatva
Editor's pick -
The Saatva Classic is a luxurious innerspring hybrid mattress that's available in three different sleep feels and two sizes, and it's our favorite mattress overall right now. Our exclusive discount knocks $400 off all orders over $1,000, which means a queen costs $1,395. Our deal runs through November and undercuts the general Saatva Black Friday mattress deal quite considerably on almost all models and sizes. If you're on a smaller budget, enjoy the body-hugging feel of memory foam, or share a bed with a particularly restless partner, check out the Nectar memory foam model (opens in new tab) below instead. Otherwise, we'd confidently recommend the Saatva to pretty much everyone.

Nectar mattress review (opens in new tab)

Nectar Memory Foam mattress: was $544 now from $359 at Nectar
Best memory foam mattress -
The Nectar is a great all-rounder memory foam mattress that will suit plenty of tastes and sleep styles. The Black Friday sale knocks 33% off everything, which takes the price of a queen down to $669. In our Nectar mattress review, we found it delivered good pressure relief and motion isolation, making it a good choice for anyone with achy joints, or who shares a bed with a partner. It comes with a lifetime warranty and a year's risk-free trial, so you'll have plenty of time to make sure it suits you.

Helix Midnight mattress review (opens in new tab)

Helix Midnight mattress: was $849 now from $699 at Helix
Best for side sleepers -
The Helix Midnight is a softer memory foam mattress that's especially geared toward side sleepers. Right now, there's between $150 and $250 off all sizes for Black Friday, with two pillows thrown in for free. That drops the cost of a queen size down to $999. In our Helix Midnight mattress review, our testing panel was especially impressed with this mattress' temperature-regulating properties and found the softer sleep feel provided welcome cushioning around the shoulders and hips in a side sleeping position, as well as effectively absorbing motion from anyone you're sharing the bed with. You'll get free US shipping and a 100-night trial to make sure it suits you.
