Here Are Amazon's Cheap Black Friday Video Game Deals

However, it was £50 cheaper on at least 62 occasions after the event and dropped a further £150 for at least four days at the end of December and beginning of January.

John Lewis and Argos both said that their customers benefited from the sales during Black Friday.

One of the most widely accepted - and positive - versions is that traditionally, retailers would operate at a loss for the majority of the year (being "in the red"), but earned a profit (go "into the black") on the day after Thanksgiving, a reference to the actual colors that retailers would use to denote profits and losses when doing their accounting, according to History.

Which? researchers tracked the prices of 94 popular products six months before and six months after Black Friday 2017, and compared the year-round prices to the Black Friday deals on those products. Is anyone surprised to hear that something might be available cheaper in the January sales than it is before Christmas has happened?

Currys PC World customers were told they could save £10 on a Sony compact camera advertised as £189 on Black Friday.

Amazon pricing is accurate as of the time of writing. This does not exclude these products from other promotions'.

And remember, prices fluctuate all year round, so don't feel rushed into buying straight away.

So what's the secret?

You can create an Argos Black Friday shopping list by clicking the heart button next to your desired products online.

Sign up to your favourite retailers' newsletters for inside tips, or check their social media pages ahead of the sales for any clues or hints to what will be on offer. But on Black Friday this could leave you with a product you weren't planning to buy, bought at a higher price than it would have been at other times during the year.

Most of us have been tempted into buying a product we don't actually need by claims of a significant discount.

Don't panic - Don't worry about missing out on a good offer as the research has revealed that you could be better off waiting until after Black Friday anyway. Again, it typically doesn't do much for Black Friday - let alone Cyber Monday - so it'll be interesting to see what it has planned this year.

Argos said products in Black Friday deals are also included in other promotions.

Meanwhile, Xbox One S bundles were reduced to £169.99, the Zing Smart X Hoverboard was reduced by £50, Acer laptops were reduced by £110, GoPros came with free accessories (worth over £100), and - cheekily - rival Amazon's own-brand products were price matched.
