Currys' Cyber Monday 2020 deals will no doubt be a huge deal. At the start of the sales period last year, Currys says it was processing two orders a second. That's a hell of a lot of electronics shifted in a short space of time.
Currys revealed that the biggest-selling products at the start of its sales event were the AirPods, Xbox One S and Galaxy Tab A 10.1, which is no surprise. AirPods took a big discount across UK retailers, and sold out in a lot of places as demand spiked for the true wireless earbuds.
Last year, we saw an absolute payload of deals on 4K TVs at Currys, with big discounts on OLED and QLEDs to be had. Consumers after more of a bargain could grab an LED TV on the cheap, too, with savings across various sizes of TV. Expect similar deals on TVs on Cyber Monday 2020.
In truth, we didn't notice loads more amazing deals during the Cyber Monday period than we saw during Black Friday. Indeed, Currys kicked off the savings earlier with its own Black Tag event, which then rolled in to Black Friday, and finally into Cyber Monday.
It was a pretty good time to pick up a Nintendo Switch or Switch games, with deals on then newly-released titles like Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword and Shield. Given how rarely they take a dive in price, this was great news for fans of the Nintendo console. You can expect that with the PS5 coming later in 2020, we'll see big discounts on the PS4 and Xbox to shift older stock.
Currys, of course, is also a supplier of both small and large appliances. So we saw plenty of deals on high-end appliances, like kettles, toasters, vacuum cleaners, fridges and washing machines. Expect to see more of those in Currys' Cyber Monday 2020 sales.
Working in Currys' favour, it offers a price match promise (see how that works here), which applies up to seven days after your purchase if you're able to find the product cheaper elsewhere. That's a super handy thing to keep in mind if you're waiting until Cyber Monday to make your purchase.
Here, then, are some ways to make sure you're set for Currys' Cyber Monday 2020 sales, including last year's best deals.
The top Currys Cyber Monday deals we saw last year
Ninja Foodi OP300UK Multi Pressure Cooker & Air Fryer:
£199 £129 at Currys
Crisp your potatoes and vegetables up real good with this pressure cooker, which represented a big £70 off the previous price (although it's regularly discounted).
Pokemon Shield: £36.99 at Currys
Released just two weeks before the sales period and usually selling for over £40 as standard, the newest Pokemon game sold out fast for Nintendo Switch. Companion game Sword was also discounted, and sold even faster.
Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote:
£39.99 £19.95 at Currys
Currys beat the Amazon price of the Fire stick by 4p on Cyber Monday. The Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is the perfect way to make your TV smart.
Tefal Actifry Original Air Fryer:
£99.99 £79 at Currys
One of Currys' Cyber Monday-only deals took 20% off this handy air fryer, which makes terrific chips (we've tried it before) and has a capacity for 1KG of food.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019) with microSD card and cover bundle | 32GB | 64GB memory card:
£249 £149 at Currys
This discount and its bundled in extras created a massive amount of interest. This 10.1-inch tablet came with a microSD card, giving you a more substantial amount of storage space, essential for any tablet.
AirPods (2019) with Charging Case
£159 £138 at Currys
This wasn't the lowest price of AirPods over Cyber Monday last year (they were £129 on retailers like Amazon), but it didn't matter. AirPods were in such high demand that Currys sold out, too.
£179.99 £75 at Currys
Coffee machines took deep discounts throughout the sales period, including a big saving for this excellent pod coffee machine, which comes with 100 free coffee capsules and has centrifusion tech to help produce a lovely, frothy crema.
Fitbit Inspire HR Fitness and Google Nest Mini Bundle:
£139 £74.99 at Currys
This was a fine deal to get both a device to track your heart rate and a Google smart speaker complete with Google Assistant. Currys had this combination in a variety of colours, too.
2 Google Home Minis for £34
Currys likes doing interesting bundle deals, and this was a good one. The Google Home Mini is the predecessor to the new Google Nest Mini – small smart speaker hubs for your home that offer Google Assistant voice control. It represented a nice saving on buying them individually for £19.
Shark IF200UK Cordless Vacuum Cleaner with DuoClean:
£349 £199 at Currys
Currys had a few vacuum cleaners discounted, including this one from Shark. It's got two brush heads, which operate across different surfaces to give you the best clean possible. The retailer also offered discounts on Dyson goods.
£29.99 £4.97 at Currys
BioWare's Anthem was far from 2019's best game, but it cost less than a pint to have it delivered to your house over the sales period. That's well worth it for a couple of hours of Iron Man-esque stompy robot shooting, and now they're working on rebooting Anthem, so it might be worth it in the long run.
Save hundreds on OLED and QLED 4K TVs at Currys
The TV sales started during the Black Tag sale, with price cuts as high as £800, and sizes varying from 42 inches and upwards. Through to Cyber Monday, we saw a lot of discounts on LG, Samsung and Sony from Currys.
Nintendo Switch Lite | Pokemon Sword |
£244 £219 at Currys
You didn't exactly get Pokemon for free with this bundle, but considering the Switch Lite had just launched, this was a decent saving that sold out online fast, but was still available in store if you could get it. It was also available for the same price in yellow, grey or the special Pokemon edition.
JBL Flip 4 Portable Speaker:
£99.99 £64 at Currys
Our review praised the JBL Flip 4 for its depth of bass and "decent, rugged design". Considering the original asking price, this was a nice big drop over the sales period.
Breville Impressions Toaster:
£50 £25 at Currys
This half-price toaster allowed anyone who bought it to toast up to four slices of bread at once, with different controls for two slices at a time. It's basically two toasters combined, and this was a nice discount that ran throughout Cyber Monday.
When are the Currys Cyber Monday 2020 sales?
Cyber Monday 2020 is on November 30, 2020. That's because Black Friday always falls on the Friday immediately after the US Thanksgiving holiday and Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after that.
But the great thing about Currys sales is that it doesn’t just limit its sales to Black Friday itself. In the last two years, its Black Tag Event started at the beginning of the Black Friday week and ran into the following week through to Cyber Monday too – with some deals carrying across, and new ones being added in each period.

Does the Currys price promise apply to Cyber Monday deals?
It did last year, and is a standing offer the retailer has. The full terms of the price promise can be found here. It requires a little work on your part, but it allows you to feel more comfortable about your Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 purchases. Currys will match prices for up to seven days after your purchases, too. Check out our guide from last year on how to use the Currys Price Match on Black Friday. It's worth noting that Currys even matches prices that involve the use of discount codes.
