When do tablet Black Friday deals start?
The earliest Black Friday deals on tablets typically start a couple of weeks before Black Friday. It's worth remembering that as Black Friday has grown in popularity in the UK, the reductions have started earlier, so keep your eyes peeled throughout the whole of November.
Can't wait to find a bargain? Our thrifty Mumsnetters are already hunting down the best deals for their Christmas shopping on our forums.

Whether you're looking for a tablet for work or play (or both!) don't miss out on the best savings on tablets this year. We'll be researching the best deals throughout November and adding them to this page so you can be in the know about the most popular discounts. Bookmark this page and keep checking back to make sure you don't miss out.

Black Friday tablet deals to expect
Black Friday is a big time for tech deals and, although we won't know the exact deals until they are all live, based on previous years you can expect decent savings on tablets. We're expecting to see big discounts on Amazon based on their offerings from previous years - particularly on their own range of Fire tablets, available for both adults and kids.
Shopping around is essential for getting the best savings - particularly if you already have a product in mind. Aside from Amazon, you can also expect discounts from the following retailers: Argos, Currys, AO, John Lewis, Laptops Direct, and it's also worth checking directly with the tablet brands.
Should I wait for the Black Friday tablet deals?
While Black Friday itself is still a good few weeks away, the early deals have already started, so it depends if you're wanting something quickly or are willing to wait to see if better deals come about on the actual day. The early deals leading up to 25 November can be lucrative too, so if you've seen a tablet you love at an excellent price it might be worth snapping it up so you can enjoy it (or finish your Christmas shopping) the following day.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual sale that sees many shops offer discounted prices across a range of products, in store and online. While it started in the USA, its ever-increasing popularity in the UK has made it a prime time for grabbing a bargain, and one of the big two shopping events of the year alongside the Boxing Day sales.
When is Black Friday 2022?
This year Black Friday is on Friday 25th November, as it usually is the day after American Thanksgiving. There will be deals and discounts throughout November though as many retailers start their sales early.
What is Cyber Monday?
Similar to Black Friday, Cyber Monday is another annual sales day. It's always after the weekend following Black Friday so this year it is on Monday 28th November.
The deals will continue over the weekend, so the two days often roll into one event. There's not as much of a difference between them now, but originally Cyber Monday was more about online deals, and Black Friday was more of an in store event. As shopping habits have dramatically changed since Black Friday began in the US though, there's less of a distinction as Black Friday is also focused on online discounts now too.
