When is Black Friday 2021?

This year, Black Friday will be on November 26 2021, but we’ve got a sneaky feeling that sales are going to start early again this time around. In 2020, Black Friday deals started much earlier than before, in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that retailers were keen to attract more custom online than ever before.

It’s been a hard year for retailers and consumers alike. Retailers are keen to keep their income flowing while consumers want to treat themselves. Combined, that’s likely to be good news for you. There should be some great deals coming up. We’re thinking pre-Black Friday sales will begin in early November and maybe even as soon as October.

One key indicator is likely to be when Memorial Day sales begin. Memorial Day is May 31 but again, it’s very likely we’ll see sales begin much earlier than that to keep you keen on snapping up some bargains.

With the continuing Coronavirus pandemic not yet leaving our lives, and restrictions carrying on in some capacity for the foreseeable future, there’s a chance that Black Friday sales may be very different this year. After a hugely successful mostly online-only Black Friday 2020, retailers may continue to keep things online so that you can snag a great deal from the comfort of your own home, rather than need to queue up for hours. It’s certainly a far more convenient method which means you’re probably more likely to get buying, right?

Whatever does happen, we’re expecting to see Black Friday 2021 be so much more than just the big day itself. Last year, retailers like Walmart and Target offered great sales throughout November, and that seems likely to continue in 2021 so that retailers can make the most profit and you can enjoy a plethora of great deals.

While sales are very likely to begin earlier, they’re going to extend until at least Cyber Monday a few days later too. Don’t be surprised if Black Friday deals reach into most of the following week as well with retailers keen to sell plenty of stock in the run up to Christmas.

Start saving now — Black Friday 2021 is going to be something special.

Get this 75-inch QLED TV for under $1,000 for Cyber Monday
TCL's 5-Series 4K QLED Google TV.

It is now officially Cyber Monday and the time to take advantage of all the excellent Cyber Monday deals on TVs. Luckily, if you're in the market for a massive 75-incher, Best Buy has got your back with this excellent TCL 5-series with a great discount from $1,100 down to $800.

Why you should buy the TCL 5-Series 4K QLED Roku TV
The TCL S555 is the new 5-Series model for 2022 which the brand just recently released. For its new 5-Series TVs, TCL went back to the Roku streaming platform, which should be a welcome change for many who were not fans of the Google TV OS found on the 2021 TCL S546 models. Although most of the bugs and kinks seem to have been fixed now with Google TV, the Roku software interface is still favored by many streamers thanks to its simplicity and user-friendliness. The Roku home screen puts all of your most-used streaming apps and input devices right there, letting you easily switch between your cable box, gaming console, media player, or streaming platforms without having to navigate input menus.
