Black Friday Guide
Today I thought I would do a little bit of a different post as it's Black Friday tomorrow and I thought it would be fun to do a round up of all the best deals that I could find for you, so that you wouldn't have to search for them and you could have your very own handy guide right here!
For anyone who doesn't know, Black Friday is an American tradition that has in the past few years came over to the UK. It is always held on the Friday after Thanksgiving and marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Basically its loads of stores all having a ginormous sale on the one day, which is pretty awesome.
I would say that this year Black Friday has well and truly landed in the UK as I have never seen so many stores and brands take part and offer so many great discounts before. Visa has forecast that £360,000 will be spent per minute on Friday so I think it's fair to say that things will be getting snapped up quick. Most offers will not be getting replenished and stores are working on a 'when it's gone, it's gone' basis so I would recommend getting up early and trying to hit the sites and stores early to try and get the best deal.
I have tried to find you as many deals as I can and hopefully I will have something covered for everyone. I am so excited about Black Friday, I just love a bargain.
I will be updating the post and my twitter with any new deals and updates I find so follow my Twitter HERE to keep track and give me a tweet on Friday to tell me what bargains you got...

Curry's/PC World - This combo of a store will start their deals at 8am online and in store. They haven't released what will be on offer yet but if their deals the past few days have been anything to go by it will be big discounts.
Argos- They are keeping super quiet about what they are going to do but the deals will be online and in store. They have also been taking at least 50% off TVs, headphones and Xbox's the past few days leading up to Black Friday so I suspect that we can expect more of the same tomorrow.
Tesco - Starts at 12.01am so it's one of the first places to start their sales so it's worth staying up late tonight to see what they have on offer. It will be in store and online.
John Lewis- Last year Black Friday was their biggest day of the year, they took in more profit online on that day than any other day of the year, so I expect they will be going big this year with their offers. All that they have said is that they will price match all the other stores and will not be undersold. They have said that a large selection of technology and electronics will be included amongst other things in the sale. Online and in store also.
Asda - 8am is when everything kicks off in store and expect queues as last year people started lining up at 5am. Take a peek at their website to see the exact products on offer. Things include TVs, Xbox's and Tablets.
Amazon - I think this is one of the most hotly anticipated sales as Amazon always do awesome things on Black Friday. They have already started selling Kindle Fire's with £100 off so expect big things on Friday.
Apple - No exact details on this but there isn't thought to be any massive discounts happening, last year there was only about £30 off their ipads but whatever they pull out of the bag it will be both in store and online.
House of Fraser - Starting today rather than tomorrow many things will have 40% off but the real deal seems to be happening on Monday when for 5 hours between 8am and 11pm it will have further discounts on many products including 15% make-up.
Very - The online store will be having a big event on Friday, no details have been released but it's thought to be big offers on their clothes and electronic.
