For mega savings across some of your favourite brands, look no further

Black Friday is just around the corner and, lucky for you, we've been scouting out the best John Lewis deals early so you don't miss any bargains.

What was originally an American tradition now happens across the globe, with most major retailers discounting a whole range of their best-selling products just in time for Christmas.

Add it to your diary: Black Friday is always the day after Thanksgiving ends. That means Black Friday this year will fall on Friday 27 November. Not free? Cyber Monday (that's Monday 30th this year) will also boast a whole range of purse-friendly savings.

As you've probably guessed, most of the sales will be held online this year thanks to coronavirus and government restrictions constantly changing.

Why John Lewis, you ask? It's one of the most reliable retailers on the block, and rarely holds mega sales, which means the discounts on household names are even more sought-after come Black Friday. Plus, fun fact: it'll keep it's price match pledge across the weekend.
