Black Friday 2021: When it is and what deals can we expect?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021 are a way off yet, but if you're planning on investing in, well, anything new this year, it's worth knowing when the biggest retail event in the calendar is happening. And what deals might be on the cards this time around. 

If Black Friday 2021 follows in last year's footsteps, we expect to see some incredible offers, including everything from the best Nintendo Switch deals and Apple deals, to huge savings on Adobe software and epic drawing tablet discounts. 

The best way to get all the top offers is to be prepared, which is why we've outlined everything you might need to know about Black Friday 2021 right here. And while we can't say exactly what each retailer has planned this year, we can share a selection of deals from last year, which will hopefully provide a teaser. 

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday traditionally starts the weekend after Thanksgiving, which would mean this year it would fall on 26 November, with Cyber Monday following shortly after on the 29 November. 

That said, for the last couple of years we've seen retailers start Black Friday sales earlier than this, with some using the whole of November to push the epic retail event. This year we don't expect any different, although most retailers tend to save the very best deals for the official Black Friday weekend.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021: What deals can we expect?

The deals we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 were among some of the best we've seen since Creative Bloq started covering the retail event. While usually retailers offer older models at discounted prices, this year we saw amazing offers on some recently released products, including Apple's new M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops. 

We also saw Adobe knock an impressive 20% off it's Creative Cloud suite, and some games console offers, including some unbeatable Nintendo Switch deals, in the both the UK and US, which were hard to argue with. Based on previous years, Black Friday 2021 will see deals on a whole range of items, including top tech, creative software, furniture and home essentials. 

If you're planning on investing in any major tech or large appliances this year but aren't in any major hurry, it may serve you well to hold off until Black Friday 2021 prices have been revealed. There really is something for everyone during this dedicated weekend of sales, so no matter what sort of deal you're looking for, you're sure to find something of interest.
