Looking for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals? You're in the right place

What’s your inbox looking like right now? Chances are it’s wall-to-wall emails from every brand you’ve ever signed up to, sharing their Black Friday deals.

Yep, it’s that time of year again, when you can save some serious dollar on that air fryer you’ve had your eye on, the new Apple laptop you need since you spilt coffee (RIP) on your last one – or, in less sexy news, that robot hoover you just know is going to transform your mess of a flat (and life) for the better.

Black Friday sees retailers offer up some of their biggest discounts of the year, and followed by Cyber Monday, many brands now give us up to a week or more of savings.

While it’s a great change to bag some bits from your wishlist, it can feel, well, A LOT – which is why HuffPost Shopping is here to guide you through things.

What is Black Friday and when is it this year?

Black Friday is the last Friday in November, which is the day after Thanksgiving in the US. The proximity to Christmas of this rare four-day weekend for most Americans has traditionally made it the busiest shopping day of the year.

And now Black Friday is international. Retailers and brands save some of their biggest deals and discounts for this day – especially in-store – in a bid to lure shoppers back to IRL browsing and spending. And this can mean making great savings for you on the stuff you already know you want and need.This year Black Friday falls on Friday, November 25.

Black Friday is traditionally known as a good time to nab big ticket tech for less – think TVs, computers and laptops, household white goods, and phones. In reality, almost all retailers now hold a Black Friday sale, so you could be saving big on everything from fashion and beauty brands to those boring but useful home and parenting essentials, as well as big brand tech.

Cyber Monday, which falls three days later, started life as the online equivalent of Black Friday – with even more deals, but available online only. Now, it’s just another great day for saving. Cyber Monday is on Monday, November 28.

How do I find the best Black Friday discounts?

Retailers want to make their deals as easy as possible to find – Amazon has its own microsite, for example – but it can feel overwhelming, especially as some Black Friday discounts are revealed to be not quite as shiny as they seem.

That’s why HuffPost Shopping is scouring the internet for the best genuine Black Friday discounts we can find across tech, beauty and homeware as well as any fantastic spot deals – think air fryers! – we spot on the day. And we’ll be doing the very same on Cyber Monday right until the end of the sale.

We’ll also keep this page updated with all our round-ups.
