The best pre-Black Friday sales to beat the rush

Black Friday used to be a busy, stress-fuelled shopping trip but this year it will probably feel like any other shopping day. Now that we’re in lockdown and only the essential shops can open it means none of our favourite highstreet go-to’s are available. 

This year Black Friday falls on 27th November and the following Monday is Cyber Monday which is when the online sales would usually kick in. With most sales being online this year, the Friday and Monday will be similar.  

According to Finder’s research: “Brits plan to spend an estimated £6 billion on Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases this year”.  

We’re here to give you a roundup of all the best Black Friday deals that are available to you now because lets face it, we’ve all been taking advantage of the ease of online shopping since March anyway.  

Boots is classed as an essential shop which means we can still buy our favourite perfumes and make-up to keep us sane throughout lockdown 2.0. Boots are offering 50% off YSL fragrances, the Best of MAC Star Gift set which is worth £87.50 and has all your everyday essentials, lipstick, mascara, strobe cream, eyeshadow and prime and prep spray is now £35. The colder months means a change in our skincare routine and Boots have us covered with Liz Earle’s Daily Revival Collection previously at £68 and now at £40. Boots are also offering £200+ off selected Oral-B products, all of which make great gift ideas for you or someone else!  

Holland and Barrett are offering up to 50% off on certain vitamins and some amazing gift sets including one full of vegan goodies. They are offering a further 15% off everything using their code PLUS15 for today only.  

Dyson have jumped on the Pre-Black Friday deal’s bandwagon this year but don’t worry we’re not recommending you buy a hoover. Their £299.99 Supersonic Hairdryer now comes with a free stand worth £65.

According to Finder “Fewer Brits are planning to take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2020 compared to 2019. Last year, 42% of adults planned to do so, whereas this year the number has gone down to 39%.”  

JD Sports are offering up to 50% off on selected items and with gyms shut we are looking for other ways to keep fit and exercise so why not treat yourself to those new trainers. Gym Shark are also catering for all your fitness needs with up to 30% off selected lines.
