Deal of the week: Grab a Black Friday bargain – a guide to today’s best offers

24 November 2017

Black Friday is here, so Moneywise has rounded-up the best bargains and deals.

What’s the deal?

This deal doesn’t need much introduction. Since arriving in the UK, Black Friday has quickly become one of the most popular shopping days of the year.

Retailers across the country have slashed prices, both in their physical shops and online.

Moneywise has picked out some top offers that are worth a look:

Remember these are just 10 of the best offers we’ve picked out. Most major retailers are running a Black Friday event of some kind, so shop around if none of these choices are up your street.

It is also worth noting that John Lewis will price match any competitor’s promotions in store and online while TopCashback is offering extra cashback rewards to shoppers today.

Why should I care?

Black Friday is now one of the key retail events of the year and credit card provider MBNA says that Brits will spend about £5.5 billion over the 2017 Black Friday weekend.

Many retailers started their sales earlier than this, such as Amazon, and the total sales between Tuesday 21 November and Monday 27 November is expected to reach £8.9 billion.

What are my other options?

While it is always good to grab a bargain, on Black Friday many people find themselves taken in by the hype and spending more than they want to. Ensure you use a comparison website to price check deals before buying to ensure you really are getting a deal.

Consumers are also bombarded with advertisements and constantly encouraged to spend at this time of year. So, ultimately, if you’re struggling with debt and unable to cope, don’t panic buy and do seek support.  

Talk to a debt charity such as Debt Advice Foundation, National Debtline, and StepChange for free and impartial money and debt advice.
