WHEN IS BLACK FRIDAY 2018?

This year's Black Friday is on Friday 23rd November, with sales lasting for about a week or so, and some retailers, such as Amazon, often cutting prices well before. In other words, keep your eyes peeled for great deals from the beginning of November onwards.

Yes – lots of deals will last from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and beyond. For more details on other deals to expect as well as tips and tricks, dos and don'ts and how the money-saving event really works, we've got you covered. 

Where should I shop for a washing machine on Black Friday?

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

So, you should be able to buy washing machines via Amazonand  John Lewis among others. And while we can't predict exactly who will be slashing prices on what just yet, why not take a look back in time with us to see what we might expect?

Last year saw John Lewis cut the prices of their washing machines by up to £170, and Currys offered up to £250 off washing machines during the Black Friday week. Appliances Direct saved customers up to £115 on washing machines, and in 2016, Tesco joined in on the action to offer 20 per cent off on Haier washing machines.

However, 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 washing machine 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 sites show you whether a price is likely to re-occur.

What's more, it's also likely that the washing machine you're shopping for will be discounted again soon (think Boxing Day sales). Always check, rather than be distracted by the recommended retail price, especially on big ticket home buys.

Buying guides:

Is my new washing machine the right size?

Before you buy in a rush, desperate to score that brilliant washing machine deal, check you've got the size right and that it will fit in the space you've allotted for it, whether it's freestanding or integrated. 

Is the washing machine right for you?

There are lots of things to consider when buying a washing machine, the most important being whether it's freestanding or integrated. For those who don't like to have large appliances on show, you might want to consider an integrated washing machine as part of your kitchen design or utility room planning. However, a freestanding washing machine can be a cheaper option, if you don't mind looking at it.

Other things to note when searching for your next washing machine are its spin speeds and the capacity it can hold in kilograms. For those who do several washes a day, or want to wash duvets, delicates or anything else you can't put in a normal wash, check for features such as eco cycles, special cycles or anti-allergy options. A time-saving option is also handy to have.

Be sure to check the energy rating and water consumption as well as half loads, timer delay, sensor washing and auto detergent dispensing, which detects how dirty the clothes are and adjusts the programme and detergent accordingly for the most efficient wash.
