Just one more day until the official start of Black Friday. But, which will come as no surprise to seasoned buyers, there are already plenty of bargains up for grabs.
From air fryers to TVs, laptops and vacuum cleaners, stores like Currys, Amazon, Argos and a whole host of other retailers started adding products to their virtual bargain bins in early November, and the savings are growing every day.
So far we’ve seen Lego sets, mattresses, home appliances, beauty, fashion and toys all hit the sale, and the closer we get to the official Black Friday date, which falls on November 25th this year, the more discounts there are begin to roll in thick and fast.
To save you endless scrolling and stressing about what a bargain buy actually is, our team of IndyBest bargain hunters are ready to guide you through the discounts and find the deals that are out there Yes, really worth your time. We won’t share offers that we don’t think are really good. Whether you’re in the market looking for Dyson vacuums or Ninja air fryers, we’re here to help.
But remember that it’s only a saving if it’s something you really need or have wanted for a long time – there are no bargains on a product that sits in the back of the kitchen cupboard and never sees the light of day.
Where are the Black Friday deals for Nintendo Switch lite?
That’s a tricky question to answer. The Nintendo Switch lite hasn’t gone on sale since Amazon Prime Day 2021 – a year and a half ago. We’re not sure why, but that means it might not go on sale this year either. Thankfully, there are still some premium OG Switch and Nintendo Switch OLED deals to play on.

This GoPro Hero 10 Black is reduced by £130
GoPro Hero 10 Black: Was £479.99 Now £349.99, Very.co.uk
Very took a massive chunk of £130 off the GoPro Hero 10 action camera in this Black Friday deal. If it sounds familiar, that’s probably because the Snapper took the top spot in our roundup of the best action cameras.
“The latest in the line of GoPros is undoubtedly the most powerful yet. The all-new processor coupled with the new HyperSmooth 4.0 stabilization system means you’re guaranteed to get GoPro’s most effective footage yet,” our author said in his review. “Quiet across all framerates and with a fast UI, helped by the new processor, which makes a surprisingly big difference. Design wise there are very few changes, but the changes under the hood make it a worthwhile addition and upgrade for many GoPro fans.”

Save £50 on these premium Sony headphones at John Lewis
Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones: £349, now £299, Johnlewis.com
Like many retailers, Sony kicked off Black Friday earlier this year, shaving a whopping £50 off its latest wireless over-ear headphones, which have earned them the top spot in our round-up of the best noise-cancelling cans. “The WH-1000XM5 are Sony’s latest and greatest headphones, and quite frankly they blow the previous WH-1000XM4 (our best buy yet) out of the water in terms of sound quality, with some nice additions and refinements to boot.” They said.
Our author added that “The active noise cancellation is incredible and works great on both low and higher frequencies. But more importantly, these sound absolutely divine. Whether it’s orchestral music, rap, podcasts or your favorite pop tracks, the WH-1000XM5 handles it all with aplomb and grace, never missing a beat.”
