Forget what you thought you knew: Black Friday isn’t just the time to shop fashion with up to 75% off at ASOS or Urban Decay palettes with a 40% price reduction.
Cyber Weekend is also prime time for investing in home, fitness and Black Friday tech deals – from hair dryers and electric toothbrushes to LED face masks and laser hair removal devices. Whether it’s the latest Fitbit, Apple Watch or Nespresso coffee machine you’re hankering after, tech and gadgets are most often the things that appear on our Christmas self-gifting lists – but get strewn to the bottom of the pile due to their hefty price tags. So when you can purchase them at a fraction of their normal prices, like right now, you’d be silly not to strike.
If you’re hoping to elevate your fitness, beauty, gifting and general life game this Black Friday, you’re in luck: a whole host of the best Black Friday tech deals are already in full swing. Here’s everything you need to know, plus the best early Black Friday tech deals to shop now (ahead of the end-of-week stampede).
Most big-name tech retailers – from Apple and GHD to Amazon and John Lewis – all take part in Black Friday, offering flash sales, discounts and deals on their best products throughout Cyber Weekend.
