Black Friday actually falls on a different day each year, but it’s always on the day after the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA.
This year, the famous event will take place on November 27, and it’s now an important date in the UK retail calendar too.
As well as on Black Friday itself, there are amazing deals to be found in the two weeks before the main event.

Which retailers will have the best Kindle deals in 2020?
Since it makes the e-readers, Amazon is set to lead the way again on Black Friday Kindle deals.
But it’s worth keeping an eye out on the stores below as they’ve also been known to cut the prices of Kindles in the past.
We’ll be updating this article with great new deals as they roll out, so be sure to check back.
Is Black Friday a good time to buy a Kindle?
It’s a safe bet that every Kindle model will be discounted at some point during the Black Friday sales, so it’s an excellent time to be shopping for one.
The key to getting a good deal on a Kindle is to identify the model you want early and keep an eye out for when the price drops.
You can also check out sites such as CamelCamelCamel which keeps a record of the price changes on Amazon and can help make sure you can spot a good deal.
It’s also worth saying that while Amazon will likely have the bulk of the discounts on most models, it pays to shop around.
Remember that you might be able to find the very same Kindle cheaper elsewhere.
What is the best Kindle you can buy in 2020?
There are a few types of Kindle – decide which one is the right one for you before you hit the sales.
Standard Kindle, with a built-in front light
The standard Kindle e-reader is the most affordable option.
The standard e-reader is the most basic model Kindle offers.
It allows users to pick from thousands of titles, as well as sync their device to Bluetooth headphones and speakers to listen to audiobooks.
It has a long battery and a special no-glare screen which can be read even in direct sunlight.
While the adjustable front light lets you read comfortably for hours, indoors and outdoors, day and night.
The Paperwhite feels more like reading a real book than a standard e-reader.
The Paperwhite is pretty close to reading an actual book, with a screen that replicates the look of paper and can be read in all lights, including in the dark.
The screen includes a backlight for those night-time insomniac readers and for those who simply can’t put books down when they get exciting.
The Kindle Oasis is waterproof.
The Oasis is effectively an upgraded Paperwhite with a fresh design and the added bonus of being waterproof making it perfect for reading in the bath or by the pool.
It starts with double the amount of memory of the two cheaper models (8GB) and can also be upgraded to have a 32 or even 64GB hard drive to store the maximum amount of content.
Kindle Oasis with adjustable warm light
You can shift the screen light from white to amber for maximum comfort.
The latest 8GB Kindle Oasis now comes with adjustable warm light allows you to shift screen shade from white to amber.
Like its previous version it is waterproof meaning you can read it in the bath or by the pool.
Kindle for Kids
The kids’ Kindle comes with a worry-free two-year guarantee.
Kindle Kids Edition is perfect if you want to get your little ones into reading.
Unlike a tablet, it’s geared for reading books – it has no games, ads or videos which means zero distractions.
It also has glare-free black and white display and weeks of battery life for hassle-free reading.
