It’s the biggest event in the shopping calendar. Here’s where (and how) to nab the best bargains

Tapping your credit card impatiently? Us too, for the countdown to Black Friday 2017 has begun.

Some of your favourite brands will be slashing their prices in-store and online this November, to make festive shopping a little more affordable.

With origins in – where else – the US, the annual day of discounts has become an international phenomenon in recent years. It now extends to almost a month of major sales, peaking with Black Friday itself (which falls this year on 24 November) and Cyber Monday (27 November). 

Cyber Monday focuses specifically on cut-price tech gadgets, and in 2017 some brands are offering deals right up until 1 December. 

If you’re exhausted by the mere thought of fighting off other shoppers for a bargain during the festive period, never fear. For those who prefer to get a gift-buying high from behind the comfort of a computer screen, Black Friday is very much geared towards the online shopper – meaning you can stay on the sofa while you snag the best discounts.

Below is a rundown of the best Black Friday deals on offer so far. We’ll be updating this list with new reductions in fashion, beauty, home, travel and more as they happen, so stay tuned.
