Black Friday doesn't officially start until tomorrow - November 29 - but try telling that to the retailers. Argos joined the ranks early this year, launching new Black Friday deals daily in the countdown to the big day.
Particularly renowned for home devices, Argos is selling everything from vacuum cleaners to laptops, as well as smart home gadgets (Amazon Echo and Google Home models). Fridges are also in the sales, although we anticipate more significant deals towards the end of the week. Toys are not yet in the sales, although there are some discounts already being applied (more details below.)
We anticipate that the retailer will continue to add more deals as we get closer to Black Friday. For now, however, this is our round-up of the best Argos Black Friday 2019 deals available today.
1. Bush MSBSNFWTDW American Fridge Freezer - White
Black Friday is the perfect time to splash out on those big money items, including investing in a new fridge. This offering from Bush is an American-style fridge freezer that has enough storage to hold 19 shopping bags in the fridge and 10 in the freezer: more than enough to hold your weekly shop.
2. Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
The third generation of the hugely popular Amazon Echo incorporates voice command, with the Amazon Alexa function. Now, you can use your voice to check the weather, set alarms, keep up to date with the news and have any questions answered immediately. You can also make hands-free calls and listen to music. To improve the sound quality, you can pair your Echo with an Echo Plus (now £99.99, down from £139.99) to create a stereo-like sound.
3. Amazon Echo Dot
The compact smart speaker is currently being sold at its lowest ever price at Argos. Like the Amazon Echo, you can ask Alexa to play music, set alarms, read the news, and also control any compatible smart devices. As smart devices continue to be a trend, Argos has also reduced the Google Home to its lowest ever price, at £49.
4. Echo Show 8
The Echo Show 8 is a good companion for your Amazon Echo devices. The 8-inch HD Smart Display connects to Alexa and can play music, set alarms, tell you the news, display photos and more. The previous model, the Echo 5, is also in the sales - at £49.99, down from £79.99.
5. KitchenAid 5KSM125BCU Artisan Stand Mixer - Silver
The KitchenAid stand mixer frequently sells out throughout the year. It's hardly surprising that it is in such high demand, given that it is one of the best stand mixers on the market. Now, the silver edition is in the Argos sales, with an incredible £220 discount. If you're not a fan of silver, the KitchenAid White Classic Stand Mixer currently has a 20 per cent discount (now £319.99). We anticipate that the iconic red stand mixer might be in the Black Friday sales, so it's worth keeping tabs on Friday.
6. Oral-B Genius 9000 Electric Toothbrush
Argos is selling this toothbrush at its lowest ever price, at £78.99. To put this in perspective, Amazon is selling a remarkably similar model (albeit 'limited edition') for £159.59 — more than double the price. The round head can help you to reach those nooks and crannies between your teeth, and the pressure control technology protects your gums. There are six brushing modes, and this model comes in white, black, lilac or rose gold.
7. Dyson V7 Motorhead Extra Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
The Dyson V7 Motorhead Extra is built to tackle both carpets and hard floors with ease. It is cordless and lightweight and, better yet, the Dyson dirt ejector means you can remove trapped dust and dirt without getting your hands dirty. The newer V8 Animal Complete Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is also in the Argos sale, at £299.99, down from £399.99
8. Shark DuoClean 2 Battery HEPA Cordless Pet Vacuum Cleaner
Beloved by cleaning influencer Mrs Hinch, this lightweight, cordless vacuum cleaner has an impressive 60 minute run time before it needs charging. It is particularly adept to picking up pet hair and engrained dirt, and it has an Anti-Allergen Complete Seal which traps 99.9 per cent of dirt, so you won't have to breathe it in.
9. Marvel Titan Hero Series Mega Collection 11-pack
While Argos is yet to include toys in its Black Friday sales, it is running a discount on this collection of Marvel characters. Now, children can make up their own scenarios with Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and Black Widow. An ideal gift for Christmas this year.
10. Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Chime Bundle
Keep a watchful eye over who's at your door, with the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Chime Bundle. This smart device allows you to watch over your phone from your phone, laptop or tablet, to give you peace of mind when you're away. The Chime works as an intercom and announcer, so you can talk to the guests on your doorstep.
11. Samsung 55 Inch UE55RU7020 Smart 4K HDR LED TV
This 55-inch smart TV incorporates Apple TV, BT Sport and NOW TV apps, which is unique to Samsung. You can watch your favourite shows and movies in 4K, a premium high quality picture setting. Better yet, this is a smart TV, so it is compatible with compatible smart home devices, meaning you can turn up the volume and change the channel using your voice — you'll never have to hunt for the remote control again.
12. NOW TV Smart Stick with 6 month Entertainment Pass
Turn your TV into a smart TV with this smart stick, which gives you access to over 300 box sets for six months. With the stick, you'll have access to Netflix, BBC iPlayer, All 4 and YouTube. Now, therefore, is your chance to get up to date with Succession or binge-watch The Handmaids Tale. The NOT TV smart stick also comes with a remote, and can be controlled using voice command.
13. NOW TV Smart Stick with 3 month Sky Cinema Pass
Argos is offering this smart stick at half price. This Now TV Smart Stick will give you access to over 1000 movies on Sky Cinema, and you can also browse the selection on Netflix and catch up on TV on BBC iPlayer.
14. Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
Using the Alexa Voice Remote, you can direct your TV to play your favourite shows, turn up the volume, or even dim the lights. The Fire TV Stick, on the other hand, allows you to access shows from Prime Video, Netflix, BBC, ITV, Disney, Curzon and more.
15. Lenovo IdeaPad S145 15.6 Inch Pentium 4GB 128GB Laptop -Grey
Save £100 on this offering from Lenovo. This laptop is particularly useful for students or adults who are on-the-go, as it weighs just 1.85 kg. It has a 15.6-inch screen, which is useful if you're watching a film or catching up on a TV programme, and the Dolby Audio sound system creates a cinematic experience.
16. Amazon Fire 7 with Alexa
This tablet from Amazon may have since been replaced by the Fire 8 and, now, Fire 10, but the older model is still excellent value - especially at its current price of just £29.99. The 7-inch screen allows you to comfortably watch TV on catchup, or scroll down your social media feed.
17. Samsung Galaxy Cellular 42mm Smart Watch - Rose Gold
This subtle smart watch allows you to take calls, receive messages and get notifications - so you can leave your phone at home the next time you go on a jog. You can leave your wallet at home, too, as you can pay for your coffee stop with a tap of your watch, using Samsung Pay. As with other fitness trackers, you can also listen to music as you exercise and track your heart rate and fitness levels. In the evening, you can even track your sleep. If you're not a fan of this design, the silver Samsung Galaxy 46mm watch is also in the sales, at £199, down from £299.
