From gifts to tech, we've analysed the best Black Friday deals today - these are the top offers to check out.

Best Black Friday deals today

You can’t move for Black Friday deals this week. Due to the pandemic, and in a bid to spread out extra strain on delivery logistics, many big retailers have launched their Black Friday 2020 deals early.


We’re not complaining – it’s great to have more time to peruse the Black Friday discounts and find the best saving. That said, with so many retailers getting involved and deals changing so quickly (ahem, Amazon), it’s hard work putting the research in.

Our experts have spent the past few weeks watching prices on popular products, like the Nintendo Switch (a best-seller) and Apple AirPods, so we can bring you the very best savings. In other words, if you only read one Black Friday deals list today, this one will help you find the very best discounts and bargains of the day.

These are the top 10 Black Friday offers you don’t want to miss today whether you’re after an iPhone, Christmas tree or a fun gift.
