It is again that time of year when the nights get colder, the days get shorter and many catch a feverish shopping blunder advantage until Black Friday.
American Deal Day is firmly cemented in the UK calendar, largely thanks to pre-Christmas sales being one of the best times to get an early gift as online and high street stores are lowering their prices.
Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving, but instead of being limited to one day, the event is now much longer, with deals starting this month. The main event on Black Friday starts the week before and runs exactly through the weekend to Monday, now known as Cyber Monday.
There is also a growing list of retailers, with all Argos, John Lewis and Curry participating with offers on everything from technology to toys, fashion and holidays.
We've rounded up what to expect from the big brands below.
As soon as the first batch of Black Friday deals is released, we'll update this page, so make sure you're checking for updates.
The high street store is always guaranteed to offer discounts on a range of products. Argos lowers almost everything from TVs to laptops, toys to home. Get up early and sign up for an email list to find out about bargains as they go down (or check here!). Argos also has a Black Friday page dedicated to current offers.

Amazon wants to boost its Black Friday deals and this year will be no different. Warm the heels on Amazon Prime Day, the online retailer will have more discounts over the weekend on Black Friday at Cyber Monday on everything from technology to TVs, laptops to books and toys. We have already made predictions for our deals on Amazon Black Friday.
Last year, Cyber Monday was, in fact, the biggest day of buying the company in all of Amazon's history, according to its own press release.
If you are wondering what to keep our pages for, here is the Amazon Echo Dot. Last year, there were discounts on many of Amazon's own products, such as the Echo range, with over 30 pounds off Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) and 10 pounds on Echo Dota (3rd General). ) and "Echo Plus". The latest products are unlikely to be discounted, but if you are happy with the older genes, then it is worth signing up for Black Friday.
Kindles are also a safe bet with Paperwhite (currently £ 89.99) – last year it had £ 50 or five monthly payments of £ 18, which is a huge savings. AirPods also always sell well, the Wireless Case Kit is currently 169 pounds, which is 30 less than RRP already, but expect more on Black Friday.
The iPhone 11 has just made its way onto the scene, so there are no offers there, but check out previous models like the iPhone XR and iPhone XS for discounts on the day. Samsung will also launch the action – Samsung S10 and S9. Amazon Refurbished, recycled phones also have cheaper cell phones with a one year warranty.

Curry is a great Black Friday check-in spot if you're looking for the latest gaming consoles, whether it's the Nintendo Switch or the PS4 Pro.

Watch the price drop of the X Box One X, also the most powerful gaming console. If you are wondering how to get the best price for the day, Curry is a safe bet.

Deals on iPhone, iPads, Macbooks and Apple Watch will be some of the biggest deals for this Black Friday. We already know what to expect based on previous years. While Apple itself cannot put pressure on Black Friday retailers, they rejoice that they have reduced the price of the tech giant's products. AirPods sold well last year, and Amazon had several deals for Apple products such as the Watch. There is little caution here, the Apple Watch Series 5 is brand new to deal with, and Apple has now stopped selling the Series 4.
If we can give you some advice, the Apple Store tends to have a one-day event on November 29th this Black Friday, but it's best to wait for other retailers. In previous years, Apple has offered gift cards instead of lowering prices, while online retailers and retailers have been making deals and offers.

British Airways is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year so it can have good offers to reflect on. The airline made headlines last year with two business class offerings for 2018 pounds. It was a really good price but the deal was restrictive. If you're looking for a bit of a luxury flight, it might be worth a look at this year's British Airways cover offer, just remember to check out the Terms and Conditions before you do. There is nothing worse than realizing that you cannot fly on the dates for which the deal was concluded. If you're ready to hunt around the site, there will be some good deals and offers, maybe more for short flights and upgrades.
Christmas Holidays also offers Black Friday deals on its dedicated page, TUI and First choice bundle options and easyJet bring their bids to Cyber Monday. Ryanair faced industrial action this year, but expect to see a few more sales. Norwegian Airlines it also has a stable year, so if you are looking for a low-cost long-haul it is a good idea to check it out. Just remember to check the flight prices before Black Friday for a fair comparison.
This year, deals are a little more unpredictable in the wake of Thomas Cook's collapse. Hotels and resorts will have empty spaces that they want to fill so they can have deals from those brands. Chase Travel bought most of Thomas Cook's stores, so it's worth checking them out. Destination wise, watch out for Spain, which was particularly affected by the collapse of Thomas Cook.
There's also always Booking.com and Expedia, if you're open to looking at different locations.

Can I return items that I buy on Black Friday?
Most of us will buy impulses during the Black Friday period, but before those packages arrive, it turns out that the customer's regret is worth reading the retail refund policy from which you buy. Legally, you have the same rights to refund defective items purchased for sale as you do when you buy them at full price. If you want to return an item for another reason then different rules may apply. The retailer may also ask to see proof of purchase, so keep your accounts if you shop. If you need repair or replacement, take your warranty and guaranteed with you, you do not need to be legal, but it is always good to have one.
If you shop online, "distance selling" applies, which basically means you can cancel your order if the product is defective. You only need to contact the retailer within 14 days of product arrival. You should not give a reason when it comes to "distance selling". Send the product within 14 days, and the payment must be with you within 14 days of arrival on retail.
If you no longer want an item, say it is the wrong size or wrong size, then you may be refused a refund.
