Black Friday, the biggest shopping event of the year, is very nearly here. From now until the final day of the sale, 30 November – otherwise known as Cyber Monday – the IndyBest team will be bringing you the very best deals, as they launch here.
Originally a one day event hailing from America and taking place the day after Thanksgiving, this year it has expanded into a huge month-long sale with many brands and retailers slashing prices across tech, toys, home appliances, fashion, beauty and more.
Although Cyber Monday is traditionally the online-only day of the event, this year the entire event will be online as shops in England remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning online sales are predicted to surge by 35 to 45 per cent during the event.
So whether you are looking to get Christmas presents sorted or are after a laptop or TV upgrade, a coffee machine, a discount on a pair of AirPods or to stock up on your favourite perfume, you’ll be sure to find an unmissable deal here this Black Friday.
Our IndyBest team hand-picks every deal we feature. We may earn some commission from the links in this article, but our selections have been made independently and without bias. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
If you’ve been after the desirable Le Creuset casserole dish for a while, there’s no better time to cash in than Black Friday. You can purchase a 20cm cast iron round casserole dish and a stoneware 29cm deep rectangular dish for just £141 on John Lewis, reduced from £235.
A similar dish featured in our guide to the best casserole dishes, with our reviewer noting that “it’s a brand you can rely on, with dishes often becoming family heirlooms.” Switch easily from slow-cooking stews to baking bread and invest in these kitchen staples.

Earning a spot in our review of the best smart speakers, our technology critic, said: “Of all Amazon’s echo devices with screens (there are two other echo show models with 8in and 10in displays respectively, plus the baseball-sized echo spot with a tiny screen), this one is the best balance of size and capability.”
Manage the calendar, listen to the radio or even watch films with the Echo. Don’t miss out.
