Deals season is upon us. In recent years, Black Friday has gone from being a single day to a long weekend, then a week, then the whole of November, so it's about to begin again.
The benefit of having such a long sales period is that there’s less pressure to buy. You can take more time to research and prepare for the moment a product you’re looking for drops in price, ensuring you’re getting the best deal that suits you. The downside is that it’s difficult to know when to buy and whether it’s worth waiting, and there’s a risk that if you wait too long the best deals will sell out.
The good news is, here at Tech Advisor we’re dedicated to scouring the web for the very best deals on all things electronic. Not only do we know when a deal is truly a bargain, we have the tech expertise to back that up. We will only recommend the best deals on the best products, to make sure you’re getting the most value for your money.
We test, review and rate hundreds of phones, laptops, tablets, headphones, speakers, wearables, software, appliances and other gadgets every year, creating Best Buy articles that rank our favourite products in every category.
These rankings help shape our deals content, particularly around Black Friday, to cut out the noise and focus on the products we would genuinely recommend buying.
Many people assume Amazon always has the best deals, but that’s not always true. In previous years, Argos has had some of the best deals on games consoles, while many of Currys' laptop offerings were cheaper than its rivals. Plus, it’s easy to forget to check the manufacturers themselves. Microsoft, Dell, Samsung and Fitbit often have incredible discounts, for example.
It’s this breadth of retailers and abundance of deals possibilities that can be overwhelming, but we can help.
You can sign up to our Tech Advisor Deals newsletter for deals straight to your inbox, and to our Deals Push Notifications (you should see a pop up appear on this page) to get notified as soon as a deal becomes available. Follow us on Twitter for even more deals as they happen.
It’s also worth bookmarking the pages that suit what you're looking for and checking them regularly. We’ve got round-ups of the best deals across many categories, which will be updated continuously throughout the rest of 2021. All our Black Friday content can be found in our Black Friday hub, in order of most recently published or updated.
