Black Friday 2021 is fast approaching, with bargain hunters soon able to take advantage of thousands of brilliant money-saving deals. Ever since Black Friday was first brought to the UK it has grown into the biggest sales period of the year, eclipsing Boxing Day as the best time to grab a bargain in Blighty. Black Friday – which originally was a US phenomenon – takes place each year the day after Thanksgiving, with Cyber Monday launching the Monday after the American national holiday.
This year the Black Friday 2021 sales kick off on Friday November 26, with the Cyber Monday sale on Monday November 29. While that’s the official start date for Black Friday, it’s likely there will be plenty of retailers running early Black Friday deals in the weeks leading up to – judging by the offers run in past years.
One such retailer was Currys who last year launched its ready, set, go promotion weeks before Black Friday started. This introduced the retailer’s Black Friday Price Guarantee, which offered “Black Friday prices now, or we’ll refund the difference”.
Another retailer that launched deals ahead of time was Amazon, who in 2020 made early-bird deals available four weeks prior to the official Black Friday start date. That was two weeks earlier than the retailer did in 2019, and it’s possible Amazon could follow this format again in 2021.
If you’re looking to take advantage of the full Black Friday discounts at Amazon then you’ll want to grab an Amazon Prime membership. That’s because Prime members get access to exclusive Black Friday deals, as well as early access to Lightning Deals.
If you’ve never used the Amazon Prime service before then the good news is you can sign up for a free trial right now. Amazon offers 30 day free Prime trials, which you can easily sign up for by clicking here.
If you time it perfectly you can make sure your free trial runs when Black Friday 2021 is taking place.
After your trial finishes a £7.99 a month fee will kick in, but you can cancel before this so you don’t pay a penny.
When you sign up to the trial you’ll have access to exclusive Prime deals, free premium delivery, as well as access to Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Reading and Prime Gaming.
Besides exclusive deals and free delivery, Amazon Prime Video is one of the best reasons to sign up to the service – which offers unmissable Amazon Original shows such as The Boys and Bosch, plus many more boxsets and blockbuster movies.
