When is Black Friday 2022 in the UK?
Technically, we still have a little way to go with Black Friday officially starting November 25, and most brands and retailers continue selling over the weekend until the following Monday, known as Cyber Monday.
But as you might have guessed, plenty of big names are ahead of the game with early Black Friday deals – which seem to be getting earlier and earlier each year.
Case in point – Boots, Currys, Argos and Dyson have already launched their sales with some significant savings and we’re keeping an eye on Amazon, which we expect to follow suit. Read our Black Friday shopping guide for everything you need to know.

Microwaves are a versatile appliance, not only for their ability to reheat leftovers, but they cost just 8p a day, according to Utilita research. So this Black Friday is the perfect time to snag a microwave deal.
Our author, who won Best Solo Microwave in our round-up, said of the Russell Hobbs Scandi compact manual microwave: “If simplicity and style are high on your wish list, this Russell Hobbs microwave is a winner”. It’s great for “easy cooking, reheating, and defrosting” and “has everything you need at a great price.”

Save £90 on a GoPro Hero 9 action camera at Very
Very has knocked off a handsome £90 from the GoPro Hero 9 action camera in this early Black Friday deal. The rugged snapper landed a spot in our roundup of the best action cameras, earning a 9/10 rating.
“The GoPro Hero 9 packs a punch with 5K capture and an extremely useful front screen,” our writer said in his review. “With the new processor included in the 10 Black, the Hero 9’s touchscreen and overall UI responsiveness are a bit lacking in comparison, but for most casual or enthusiast users, we don’t think this will be a deal-breaker.” .”

Save £600 on a Samsung folding phone at Amazon
Remember when phones would fold and flex when we wanted them to and then start flexing when we didn’t? Well, we’re happy to announce that things are coming full circle and bendy phones are cool again.
Which is just as good, as Amazon currently has a cool £600 savings on the Galaxy Z fold3. The Galaxy Z fold3 may have been replaced by the still slightly more advanced fold4, but despite the brand’s upheaval it’s still remained at the top of our list of best foldable phones, and with good reason.
We’re always ready to praise the Fold4, but as mentioned in our review of the latest flagship model, the tiny tweaks make the upgrade a much harder sell than its predecessor, so we wholeheartedly recommend the previous iteration.

Save 10 percent on pre-orders of God of War Ragnarok on Amazon with this offer.
If you’re hoping to find the best gaming deals on Black Friday, Amazon currently has a deal on offer God of War Ragnarok This saves buyers 10 percent of the cost of their pre-order.
It’s fast becoming one of our favorite games of the year. In our 5/5 review, we said, “After the dust settles and the credits roll, God of War Ragnarok is as strong a sequel as one could hope for and a fitting ending to Kratos’ latest chapter. In itself it’s hard to fault, but on 2018 fundamentals God of War, it is nothing short of a masterpiece.”

Save £14 on a pair of Amazon Echo Dots
While not necessarily a Black Friday deal, we did notice that Amazon has a deal where two third-gen Echo Dot speakers can be purchased for £29.98. That’s a saving of £14 on the usual price when buying a pair.
All you have to do is add both to your cart and use the code “2ECHODOT3” at checkout. Set up a home intercom system with a pair of these smart Alexa speakers, or use them to create a stereo pair while listening to music.

Save €50 on a Ninja 3-in-1 Food Processor
If you’re looking for a serious, heavy-duty food processor to meet your blitzing, pulsing, and pureeing needs, you might want to turn to Ninja’s lineup.
“The benefit of this particular appliance is its 3-in-1 USP, serving as a food processor, multi-serve blender, and personal blender,” said our reviewer. They praised the automatic one-touch blending and processing feature, adding, “These programs really took our time when preparing food.”

Save £100 on an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil at John Lewis
John Lewis is one of the UK’s leading retailers when it comes to electronics, appliances and other goods, so we expected to see some good deals popping up there.
This deal sees £100 deducted from a bundle that includes the latest-generation iPad Pro tablet, as well as Apple’s second-generation Pencil stylus and the company’s magic keyboard dock. More specifically, this is the 11-inch version of the tablet with WiFi, 256GB of storage, and the Space Gray color option with a matching keyboard.
