Even though the official Black Friday 2019 sales date is tomorrow, November 29, Amazon started releasing its deals last Friday. Brand-new deals have been announced every day and, so far, Amazon has been offering some of the best Black Friday deals on televisions, laptops, headphones and smart devices. We have listed the best of today's deals below.
As the retailer that brought the November sales to the UK from the States, Amazon goes all-out on Black Friday. Last year alone, customers saved over £40 million in Amazon's Black Friday sales, and this year should be no different.
Amazon is not alone in starting its Black Friday sales before the official sales date, however. John Lewis and Currys PC World also launched their offers last Friday. Yet Amazon has a slight advantage because, on top of selling electricals and gadgets at a discounted price, the retailer also has Amazon-branded products (Echo Dots, Fire tablets, etc) in its sales.
