When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday will fall on 26 November 2021 and be followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November. Cyber Monday is often associated with tech deals online, but in truth, the discounts all start much earlier.
In previous years we’ve seen sales events starting in early November, giving laptop hunters a couple of weeks to see the deals and grab the device they’re after. Some savings will be limited to the Black Friday weekend, but the smart shoppers will know what they want to buy and keep an eye on the action from the middle of November onwards.
