Stay tuned and we'll be cherry picking the very best Black Friday deals for self builders and home improvers to help you create your dream home.

When is Black Friday 2020?

This year, the official date of Black Friday is 27 November, followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November. But if the event is anything like last year, many retailers are quick out the gate, releasing early Black Friday deals days before the official date, and continuing Cyber Monday deals throughout the following week. 

Not all deals will be available throughout the whole Black Friday period, so it pays to plan ahead, make a note of specific items you are looking to buy, and keep watch. You'll also need to be prepared to act quickly, so it's a good idea to create online accounts with your preferred retailers (if you haven't already), sign up to their newsletters and follow them on social media.

Which Retailers Release Black Friday Deals?

The question is, who doesn't? 

Historically, Black Friday was a US-only event, falling on the Friday after Thanksgiving, but now, it is more of a global extravaganza and a great opportunity to get significant discounts. 

Amazon always does great deals across an impressively wide range of product areas, with the convenience of next day delivery for Prime members (although during times of peak trading, such as Black Friday, this might not always be possible). 

AO.com, B&Q, Wickes, CurrysPCWorld and Screwfix also got in on the Black Friday action last year so it's worthwhile keeping your eyes peeled in the days leading up to the main event.

What Black Friday Deals are Worth Looking Out For?

While we won't know which products are due to be discounted until Black Friday rolls around, we can look at what was a top seller last year and make some educated predictions. 

Power tools for the home and garden are well worth searching for around Black Friday - with prices slashed across major brands like Bosch, Makita, Flymo and Kärcher.

Smart home gadgets like smart speakers, video doorbells and wireless security cameras are usually a safe bet, while large kitchen appliances such as fridge-freezers, washing machines and dishwashers also tend to see some significant discounts. 

Black Friday is also a create opportunity for deals on TVs, vacuum cleaners and other smaller home electronics.
