Black Friday 2022: The biggest tech retailers to keep your eye on

Last Updated 9 Jun, 2022

Although Black Friday sale events have massively diversified in recent years, tech deals are still at the forefront of the biggest sales event of the year. It goes without saying we all love the fabulous fashion deals and tantalising travel offers at the end of November, but it seems we’re all still a sucker for the latest tech - especially when it’s discounted. This year, we’ve rounded up our favourite tech retailers so you know where to look for the biggest and best deals.

Argos

As one of the UK’s best-loved catalogue stores, Argos is one of the key players when it comes to awesome Black Friday offers. In past years, they’ve reported upwards of 75 million hits to their website on Friday alone. This year, we’re expecting their deals to go live around 9pm on the Thursday night, and with big brands like Bose, Apple, and Samsung in the mix we’re certain you won’t want to miss out this year.

In 2021, the top picks included an extra 10% off selected 4K Smart TVs including big brands like Samsung and Toshiba. Apple airpods and Galaxy buds all had massive discounts, and tech fanatics were loving the £50 discount on the X Rocker eSports Pro 2.1 audio gaming chair. So whether you’re in the market for a new television, laptop or innovative vacuum, you can bet you’ll get your hands on it for a cracking price at Argos this Black Friday 2022.

Top Argos tip:

Head over to the Argos Black Friday page or register for the mailing list ahead of time to be the first to hear about their plans for the big day. Whether it’s outstanding deals on consoles or a flash sale on desktop PCs, this is the easiest way to make sure you don’t miss out on the best discounts.


Amazon

It goes without saying that epic deals will be flowing fast and heavy over at Amazon throughout the Black Friday period. Known for their infamous lightning deals and daily deals, Black Friday is set to be even bigger and better with eye-watering discounts across Amazon’s own Alexa smart home devices, as well as top brand tech and electricals.

Amazon’s Black Friday bonanza usually kicks off around a week in advance, and the best-sellers in 2021 were their more home-grown products including the Kindle, Fire and Echo devices - all with discounts of around 20% to 40% throughout the week. As well as an awesome discount on their own devices, Amazon also slashed the price of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G (reduced by more than £250), the Acer Swift 1 SF114-33 14-inch laptop (reduced by £70) and the LG 50UP77006LB 50-inch 4K TV (reduced by £160).

There’s plenty of great reasons to head over to Currys PC World this Black Friday. Their Black Tag event is expected to be bigger and better than ever, with mammoth discounts promised across top brand laptops, kitchen gadgets, televisions, tablets and more. This year’s hottest deals are likely to include the latest consoles from Xbox and Playstaion, 4K ultra HD televisions and innovative vacuum cleaners.

Top early deals last year included up to £50 off the Apple iPhone 12, £60 off Beats Solo 3 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, which was reduced to £129, and the lowest price ever for the Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen) - slashed to just £18. While the biggest deals were saved for the Friday, the early deals certainly knocked our socks off - so keep your eyes peeled for a similar trend this year.

Top Currys PC World tip:

In previous years, the electronics megastore has processed around 14 orders a second during their peak shopping period at around 9.15am. Set your alarms and get online early to make the most of the best deals and quickest shopping experience. Bookmark their Black Friday page ahead of the day so you can get right to it as soon as deals go live.


GAME

If you’re a fiend for the latest releases and consoles, you won’t want to miss GAME’s Black Friday offering this year. Last year they put a sharp end to all confusion, promising gaming geeks the best deals from the get go. From fantastic value console bundles to dramatic price cuts on best-selling games, get set for awesome deals across Nintendo, Playstaion and Xbox devices.

Last year’s Black Friday sale included savings of up to 50%, with deals like £10 off Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered on the PS4, Demon’s Souls on PS5 for £39.99 and Alan Wake Remastered on Xbox One for just £17.99. Plus, the Nintendo Switch was reduced to £259.99 with lots more discounted game bundles too. While in previous years GAME stores up and down the country stayed open until late, we reckon the best deals will be kept for online shoppers this year.

Top GAME tip:

Register for the GAME newsletter before the big day to find out everything you need to know about their Black Friday deals. Whether you’re team PlayStation or Xbox, one thing that’s certain is you seriously won’t want to miss out on these epic discounts.


John Lewis

The iconic high street department store seriously didn’t hold back on last years event. With staggering discounts across electricals, furniture, fashion, and beauty, it comes as no surprise that 2021 was a record-breaking year for John Lewis with Black Friday helping towards record annual sales of £4.9bn.

Last year’s top discounts included £400 off the Sony Bravia XR TV, the Ring Smart Video Doorbell and Echo Dot (3rd Gen) for only £34 and a £40 saving on the Lavazza Jolie Coffee Machine. A whole host of other big brand tech was also reduced, with even more discounts expected this year.

Top John Lewis tip:

While John Lewis are retiring their Never Knowingly Undersold policy in the Summer of 2022, they are replacing it with Everyday Quality & Value. It means that all John Lewis customers will benefit from great prices everyday, without having to shop around. With a more proactive approach to leading on great value, you should find that their prices remain ultra competitive during Black Friday. You’ll also enjoy the added bonus of an extended warranty on selected electricals too!
