Black Friday is finally here, and the biggest shopping event of the year has reached new heights for 2020. It’s the primetime to bag a bargain on the bigger items you’ve been lusting after all year.

Perhaps you’re after a new velvet sofa, or need new white goods, as no one wants to spend a large amount of money on a washing machine. Whatever it is that you’re after, today’s the day to make use of the discounts and low prices.

To help you navigate the swathes of offers currently available, we’ll be searching high and low for the hottest discounts, regularly updating our main Black Friday guide with the best offers in the sale. 

Our IndyBest team hand-picks every deal we feature. We may earn some commission from the links in this article, but our selections have been made independently and without bias. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.

It comes with a towel rail and shelf to hold your skincare routine, make-up essentials or jewellery.

How to get the best Black Friday furniture deals

We think the key to making the most of this annual event is not getting sucked into discounts that look too good to be true.

Instead, come up with a list of products you’re actually interested in. That way, you won’t buy things you don’t actually want, but look a good deal.

Shop around for the best price, and make sure you know the actual RRP of the product, so you’ll know a good deal when you see one.

When shopping for bulkier items, keep in mind too that delivery times will often be longer so keep your eyes peeled for details on whether or not your new sofa will arrive by Christmas.

Here at IndyBest, our team will also be handpicking the biggest savings to shop throughout Black Friday, so make sure you check back here regularly.

How long will the Black Friday discounts last?

The deals will continue over the weekend and for the majority of retailers and homewares brands, Cyber Monday (30 November) is typically the last day to bag a bargain, but some do extend their offers into early December, as Habitat did in 2019.
