Black Friday soundbar deals: FAQs

When did the best Black Friday soundbar deals start in 2021?

Black Friday falls on November 26, 2021 - that's today! But there have already been plenty of great discounts that started in advance of the big day of deals.

Most of last year's Black Friday soundbar deals began from early November. But the biggest and most surprising discounts were found on Black Friday itself, which is why today is the best day to shop. However, prices remained low into the beginning of December – usually prices rise pretty quickly after Cyber Monday, so last year's shoppers had even longer to find the perfect discount. 

The longer deals period may have been down to the pandemic, which forced many physical shops to close. There was a huge 50% increase in online shopping compared to the previous year. Unable to sell products in person, many retailers opted to keep their deals going for longer.

How can I get the best Black Friday soundbar deals?

There are a few things you can do to make the most of Black Friday 2021. For starters, sign up for an Amazon account if you don't already have one and create a wishlist of soundbars you have your eye on.

Make sure you do the same for other big electronics retailers – Best Buy and Currys, for example, are likely to make some hefty reductions across their home audio ranges over the day.

It's also worth reading the reviews of a few different soundbars so you know which will suit you and can answer questions like: are you looking for a soundbar that supports Dolby Atmos? Does it need to have Bluetooth built in? Black Friday is notoriously hectic and you wouldn't want to make an impulsive purchase that isn't really what you were looking for.
