It would surprise absolutely no one if November was renamed the month of discounts.
Arriving just before the festive season gets underway, November has, for some, become synonymous with mega bargains and sales. It’s solely down to US-imported shopping holiday known as Black Friday.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
Every year there is slight confusion over these key dates but the easiest way to remember is that it all kicks off on the fourth Friday in the month.
In 2021, this means Black Friday will happen on November 26. Cyber Monday closes a weekend of sales on November 29.
What are the best Black Friday bargains?
Whether you have a fantasy wish list or a very real shopping list crammed with essentials, chances are there will be some sort of Black Friday discount on them. Find the ES home of Black Friday deals here.
Over the years the deals have expanded to cover services as well as goods - think gym memberships, phone contracts and even broadband packages.
With so many of us WFH either full or part-time and using multiple devices including smart home tech, it’s never been more vital to keep an eye out for the best home Wi-Fi deals your money can buy.
