WHEN IS BLACK FRIDAY 2018?

This year's Black Friday is on Friday 23rd November, with sales lasting for about a week or so. Some retailers, such as Amazon has already launched their deals, so we suggest you keep your eyes peeled from the beginning of November onwards.

Can you get great Black Friday smart home deals?

Of course – lots of deals will last from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and beyond. Looking to replace TVs, mattresses, sofas, kitchen appliances or smart home gadgets? Find out why it's worth waiting to buy these products until Black Friday. 

Where should I shop for the best Black Friday smart home deals?

Don't miss your chance to subscribe to the best homes magazines in the world. Our titles include Real Homes magazine, Period Living and Homebuilding and Renovating.

With brands ever more attuned to the Black Friday buzz, you can expect big savings from some of our favourite retailers.

So, you should be able to buy smart home tech via Amazonand  John Lewis among other popular retailers. And while we can't predict exactly who will be slashing prices on what just yet, let's take a look back in time to see what could happen. 

Last year saw Amazon slash the prices on several of their own products from Echo to Echo Dot and the Kindle. They also helped customers save a hefty £90 when purchasing a Hive thermostat. Meanwhile, John Lewis knocked £50 off the Google Home smart speaker. Argos lowered prices on several of their smart home items which included the Amazon Echo Plus by £30, and the Dot which went down to an all-time bargain price of £34.99. 

It's worth noting though, that sometimes retailers opt out of Black Friday – which is why it's worth checking back here for updates because we'll be monitoring the best deals for you.

Are Black Friday smart home savings real?

Yes, but... since many products' prices change frequently, checking the price history of what you're planning to buy on CamelCamelCamel.com or PriceSpy will tell you whether the savings are real or not. These helpful sites also show you whether a price is likely to re-occur.

Realistically, it's also likely that the smart home tech you're shopping for will be discounted again soon (think Boxing Day sales). So, always check, rather than be distracted by the recommended retail price, especially when it comes to big ticket home buys.
