When it comes to Black Friday events John Lewis’s deals are among the best in the UK as they push everything from TVs to laptops, to toys and tech. Black Friday is on 29th November this year, followed swiftly by Cyber Monday on 2nd December. The department store’s Never Knowingly Undersold policy means it checks its prices constantly comparing them to its competitors – which is great on Black Friday when there are so many deals to sift through.


There’s also a two-year guarantee on most products at John Lewis and five years on TVs, which adds value when you match up the price to other brands.

Last year, John Lewis broke its sales record over the Black Friday period with a 7.7% increase year on year, and we’re sure it’s aiming to beat that this year so expect more offers heading your way for John Lewis’ Black Friday deals (that’s before we even get to John Lewis’ Cyber Monday deals).

This was one of the most popular deals last year. The A+++ energy rated washing machine with 8kg load, and 1400 rpm spin from Bosch is a greener option. Last year, John Lewis cut £100 from its price over Black Friday and that’s likely to happen again.

While John Lewis has the ‘Never Knowingly Undersold’ policy it doesn’t include delivery so remember to check competitors’ prices if they include delivery as you may be able to match the price.
