Black Friday 2022 deals: the best early live deals

Best Black Friday Deals

At the time of writing (5th October 2022), Black Friday deals haven’t been fully released yet. However, there are signals from brands that things are about to switch up fast, so we’ll keep this page updated on the latest Black Friday deals.

There is, however, a Prime Early Access Sale planned for October 11th-12th, meaning this is the start of the  Black Friday Amazon sales. So it’s very likely that other stores will likely see this as the starting point for Black Friday 2022.

What date is Black Friday 2022 in the UK?

So when does Black Friday start? Black Friday 2022 has been officially confirmed for the 25th of November. Traditionally a big shopping day in America, before arriving in the UK, the date always falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

When is Cyber Monday 2022?

Cyber Monday will follow on from Black Friday deals on the 28th November. This means a full weekend of low-prices to enjoy just in time for gifting season.

Traditionally, Cyber Monday deals were geared towards discounts across small electronic items like phones, laptops and the like. However, these days, they extend to other departments to keep the competition going.

When do Black Friday 2022 deals start?

Black Friday deal start dates vary per retail. As we mentioned previously, there’s a Prime Early Access sale planned for the 11th-12th October. Amazon Black Friday is ahead of the game when it comes to the best Black Friday 2022 deals, so keep your finger on the pulse for the latest deals.

We should mention that in previous years, Boots, Amazon and John Lewis, along with a number of other retailers, launched their deals a fortnight earlier than the official date. We anticipate that they might do the same this year, if not sooner than we think.

We currently don’t have information on all the Black Friday deals, as other retailers are yet to announce them. However, a lot can change from now until the big day. For now, you can claim some seriously good student discounts by signing up to Student Beans for free, on things like:

Until Black Friday deals are confirmed, we’ll leave you with our general advice on how Black Friday generally plays out, how to find the best deals and our best tips and tricks to make the most of the big shopping event.

How long does Black Friday last?

The best Black Friday deals last for a limited amount of time only. However, some brands are released their Black Friday discounts well in advance. Sometimes up to a month!

Typically, though, Black Friday sales from brands usually last around 24 hours. They may extend to Cyber Monday with the same or different offer.

So all in all, it really depends on the retailer and how long they want to run their offers for.

What are the best Black Friday deals 2022?

We expect many retailers to run Black Friday sales across all of their departments, especially as times are tougher (financially) than they were a year ago. This includes fashion, tech, beauty and home deals.

The retailers we exclusively work with may even stack our student discount on top of their sales (subject to their T&Cs), so keep an eye out for those if you want the best Black Friday deals.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the retailers offering Black Friday deals. Just be mindful that the majority are yet to update their pages with Black Friday deals relevant to 2022:

Nintendo Switch Black Friday

The Nintendo Switch is on many minds for the gifting season ahead, especially if you or your loved ones have Animal Crossing New Horizons Island ideas in mind!

If you’re wondering where to get Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals, keep an eye out for the following retailers:

  1. Amazon Nintendo Switch — £250.64 down from £299
  2. GAME Nintendo Switch — Switch Light from £199
  3. John Lewis Nintendo Switch — Switch Light from £199 (with Joy-Con currently unavailable).

Correct as of Wednesday 5th October 2022.

Dyson Airwrap Black Friday

The Dyson Airwrap is another huge gifting idea for many, and we can imagine many retailers will be competing for the best Black Friday deals title. The best places to look for Dyson Airwrap Black Friday deals are Amazon, Boots and John Lewis.

If they sell out, or you can’t find the right deal, we’ve got a ton of Dyson Airwrap alternatives & where to buy them. Including:

  1. Revlon Pro Collection One Step Dryer & Volumiser
  2. Elle Magic Hot Air Styler
  3. BaByliss Flawless Volume Hot Air Styler
  4. Revamp Progloss Airstyle – 6 in 1 Air Styler

Is Black Friday the best time to buy?

The best Black Friday deals land on the week of the sale itself, with the biggest products seeing discounts during the main event. So yes, Black Friday is one of the best times to buy.

 However, you’ll be seeing discounts landing as early as the start of the month, which we anticipate will be the case with a lot of retailers.

Is Black Friday cheaper than Amazon Prime Day?

Both Prime Day and Black Friday are great times to bag yourself some serious discounts. 

According to Digital Trends, the discounts are more or less the same, if not cheaper on Black Friday. Obviously, to celebrate and buy from Prime Day deals, you’ll need an Amazon Prime account.

If your current laptop is failing you and you want the best student laptops, it’s worth shopping the deals that are coming up. That means, don’t just wait for Black Friday to roll around if Prime Day is happening sooner (and vice versa).

Black Friday versus Cyber Monday

Black Friday consists of sales across all departments, whereas Cyber Monday, traditionally, offers more discounts on electronic-based items. Nowadays, this extends to other products too, especially as retailers are more competitive than ever before.

Cyber Monday is typically also an online-exclusive event, but again, this may change as retailers battle it out for the best Black Friday deals over the long weekend and beyond.

Keep an eye out on this page for the best Black Friday deals. We’ll update it regularly as soon as we know more, including the best Black Friday deals on specific products too. Don’t forget to sign up to Student Beans to stay in the know and get access to exclusive UK student discounts.
