Argos was one of the big winners last Black Friday and it looks set to rake in the big bucks again in 2019.
More than 1 million customers visited the brand’s stores in person and 71% visited its website.
Will Argos be able to keep the momentum from last year’s sales? Well, with plenty of tech, homeware, TVs and laptops on the expected sales list it looks like it.
We’ve looked back at Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year to work out what you can expect as well as trends to see what you should keep your eye out for to get that bargain.
When will Argos’ Black Friday deals start?
Shops usually start announcing, and offering, Black Friday deals a little early about two weeks before the main event. The deals and offers continue through to Cyber Monday and the week after too.
Argos Crazy Code toy deals
Argos has already launched its Crazy Code toy deals. Every Wednesday for ten weeks Argos reveals a new voucher code that customers can apply at the checkout to get a discount on selected toys. Each code lasts for a week. The online retailer has already had LEGO sets discounted, PlayDoh and toys. The current code is PAW15 offering 15% off PAW Patrol, Hatchimals and Meccano Toys. The offer runs from Wednesday, 13th November to Tuesday, 19th November, then a new code will take its place.
The promotion is running on a range of toys including the PAW Patrol Mighty Lookout Tower, which is now £68 down from £80, the Meccano Space Model Set, now £25.50 and Hatchimals New Fall HatchiBabies which is now £42.49.

Argos Black Friday deals 2019
There were plenty of offers on laptops last year, the general rule of thumb is a 20% discount from it’s RRP. For higher discounts we recommend you check the spec of the laptop. The Lenovo IdeaPad was one of Argos’ best selling deals last year, and we expect to see the Lenovo IdeaPad 330s, which already has 20% off at £399.99.
Apple could also be in the Black Friday sales, especially since Apple’s Black Friday deals at the Apple Store don’t offer discounts on products but offer giftcards instead.
The 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro could be on offer and the 13-inch MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro is already at a pretty good price at £949 – Argos’ lowest price ever. Buy it here.
PS4 Pro bundles
PS4 with FIFA 20 bundle Argos
Argos said itself “Black Friday was [its] biggest day ever for video gaming,” so it’s likely to push the games console packages again this year, with a variety of bundles. Last year, the PS4 with Red Dead Redemption bundle dropped from £299 to £219. Games dropped in price too, with Tomb Raider down to £11.99 and FIFA from £52 to £38.99
With Fortnite still flying high the PS4 500GB and the PS4 Pro 1TB consoles are worth looking at, both come with Fortnite Neo Versa in bundles already.
PS4 500 GB and FIFA 20 bundle is currently £249.99 and the 1TB is £349.99 which we’d expect to see come down a bit.
PlayStation VR PS4 Camera VR Worlds
PS VR with VR Worlds Mega Starter Bundle Argos
The VR headset on launch was £350 by itself, but last year Argos sold the PSVR PS4 Camera with VR Worlds bundle for £179.99. The package includes the PS4 Camera, which you need for the PSVR function, as well as a copy of VR Worlds. There’s plenty of minigames to keep you busy too.
The bundle is currently £259.99, but we expect the price to go down for Black Friday again.
XBox One S 1TB Argos
You’ll see a pretty good XBox One deal this year judging from previous deals. The 1TB XBox One S with Minecraft and Forza Horizon came down from £249 to £179.99 and Battlefield V and Fortnite XBox One S bundles were also £179.
Controllers dropped in price too from £249 to £179.99 for the 1TB XBox One S and XBox One games were on offer, with Call of Duty: WWII cut from £49.99 to £22.99, Forza Horizon 4 went from £40.99 to £26.99. We may see price drops again as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available to pre-order.
iPad (2018) Argos
While the latest iPad isn’t likely to be on offer the older versions will be. Argos has even flagged up the iPad as a possible Christmas gift.
The store has the iPad 2018 6th Gen 9.7 inch, which was in the sale last year, with £20 off it came to £299.
but it has a range of storage options and colours on iPads and tablets.
Bose headphones Argos
The Bose Quiet Comfort 25 was in the Black Friday sale last year, this time around the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 stands a chance of being on offer. Currently at £299.95 you could see a saving of up to £100 if last year is anything to go by. The Quiet Comfort 25 went on sale for £129.95 a saving of £103.05. You can buy them here.

Argos Black Friday bestsellers
Last year there were big discounts on TVs, games consoles and headphones, but there were also a few standout offers on LEGO and toys. Expect more of the same this year.
Argos has revealed its best selling products from last year too:
PS4s were also flying off the shelves, and with the PS5 set for release you can expect to see price drops on the older console. Look for the PS4 Pro and check the store for bundles. Last year the PS4 came with Red Dead Redemption. The Nintendo Switch Lite is also on sale now, so the Nintendo Switch will be a Black Friday deal.
