When is Black Friday 2023 in the UK?
Every year, Black Friday kicks off the day after US holiday Thanksgiving, which means, in 2023, the shopping bonanza started on Friday 24 November. Deals will continue to drop over the weekend, culminating in Cyber Monday – the final day of the sale – which will fall on Monday 27 November.
When will the best Black Friday deals be available?
Despite the event officially taking place over a single weekend, Black Friday deals could be found as early as four weeks in advance. However, it is still worth keeping an eye out for bargains on 24 November, as some major retailers could reserve the very best discounts for Black Friday itself.
It’s also a good idea to follow your favourite brands on social media and sign up to newsletters, so you’ll be aware of any new offers or lightning deals.
What were the best Black Friday microwave deals from last year?
Black Friday offers the chance to bag all kinds of deals, and last year was no exception, particularly across top microwave brands.
During last year’s sale, big-name brands such as Kenwood reduced appliances, with shoppers bagging themselves a bargain on the K20MS21 microwave (£79.99, Currys.co.uk). Currys was on a roll when it came to slashing prices, with the Panasonic NN-CT55JWBPQ microwave also being discounted (£219, Currys.co.uk).
Argos was another online retailer that participated in Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year, with discounts across all kinds of home appliances, including a Panasonic 800W microwave (£80, Argos.co.uk), while Lakeland reduced the Sage combi wave three-in-one microwave (£349.95, Lakeland.co.uk) by £50.
