Best Argos Black Friday deals 2021: Offers to expect on appliances, tech products and more

By Abha Shah

The year’s biggest shopping event is almost upon us.

We’re not talking about the January sales or even the end of summer clearances - the Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday sales events eclipse them all.

What is Black Friday?

The shopping holiday began as a US phenomenon, taking place the day after Americans gather and celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s incredibly popular here, thanks to the date’s proximity to Christmas.

In fact, many consider the Black Friday sales to be the firing gun to festive shopping, which makes sense - few would turn down a golden opportunity to stretch their Christmas budget even further.

What date is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

This year Black Friday takes place on Nov 26, with Cyber Monday, a day to pick up electricals and tech, closing the sales on Nov 29.

Big names are all signed up to the Black Friday sales bandwagon and one name we’re most excited about is Argos.

The high street favourite has cemented itself as a leading BF destination thanks to impressive discounts in years past.

What were the best deals from last year?

Anticipating the demand from shoppers who spent the best part of 2020 in lockdown, Argos went big on homeware sales, with discounts across practical items as well as the more frivolous. Brands on offer included Samsung, Dyson, Ninja and Shark.

Tech too, was treated to red hot markdowns with everything from BaByliss hair dryers and GoPro cameras to Amazon’s Echo smart assistants. Sales on gaming and children’s toys also did incredibly well.

What deals to expect this year?

While we haven’t been told Argos’s BF game plan just yet, we can expect bigger and better deals than in the past, with the first discounts trickling through from the start of November.

In the meantime, satisfy your urge for a bargain by checking out Argos’ current sales. Right now, you can get 20 per cent off selected furniture and there are promotions on LEGO too.
