Stay tuned for the best deals in Black Friday 2022



Laptops and tablets are always hot items during major shopping events, and that’s because you can find big discounts on popular products like MacBooks, iPads, Fire tablets and many more. If you’re in the market for a new device, you’re in luck, because Black Friday is the best time to invest in something new.

Black Friday (and Cyber ​​Monday) is pretty well known for laptop and tablet deals, so if you’re looking to upgrade, these sales are a good place to start.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday started in the US but seems to take on greater significance in the UK every year.

Since the 1950s, stores across the US have offered impressive deals the day after Thanksgiving to kick-start the holiday shopping season. In 2013 Asda had a Black Friday sale this side of the pond offering deals on a wide variety of goods. Other retailers jumped on the Black Friday bandwagon the following year, and the rest is history.

We spent £435 million together in 2013 when the concept was still in its infancy in the UK. Today we spend billions – the highest total in Europe. Black Friday is clearly a very different beast than it was a few years ago, and this trend will continue into 2022.

When is Black Friday in 2022?

While Black Friday falls on November 25 this year, retailers will start trickling out their deals much sooner. Black Friday really lasts from mid-October to December.

Black Friday vs. Cyber ​​Monday – what’s the difference?

Scoring a great deal on Black Friday once meant camping out at a retailer in the middle of the night, right when the store opened. But as online shopping became mainstream, online retailers wanted a piece of the Black Friday pie. Cyber ​​Monday was born thanks to people from the early 2000s who wanted the best internet connection possible to do their shopping. At the time, computers in the office had a better broadband connection than at home, so people had to wait until Monday to make all their online purchases. In 2005, the NRF debuted the term Cyber ​​Monday and we’ve been shopping online ever since.

Last year’s Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales effectively merged, as in-person shopping wasn’t really a thing. We will almost certainly see that repeat this year.

What laptop and tablet deals will we see in 2022?

We know everyone is totally obsessed with MacBooks and iPads, but there’s life outside the Apple bubble. We expect deals on laptops and tablets from the likes of Dell, Microsoft, Acer, Huawei and yes, Apple. So whatever you’re looking for, there’s bound to be something for you this Black Friday.

All the leading tech retailers will start dropping deals from early November (or sooner), with deals on everything from gaming laptops to kids’ tablets. Companies like Amazon, Currys and Argos have a history of posting impressive deals on laptops and tablets, but it’s not just these retailers. Virtually every site offers great savings during this busy shopping season, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for at one retailer, keep calm and move on to the next. Patience is key in this stressful time.

MacBooks and iPads are likely to feature in plenty of deals during Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, and we’ve seen plenty of discounted tablets on Amazon already. Apple deals are always popular during this period and we don’t expect anything to change in 2022.

Where can you find the best laptop and tablet deals in 2022?

The best retailers to consider if you’re looking to invest in a laptop or tablet are the names you’d expect. There are no big surprises here, but these are the retailers you should visit for the best deals this Black Friday:

  • Amazon(opens in a new tab) – This huge online store is always a hit on Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, and it should probably be your first option when it comes to laptop and tablet deals. You can find absolutely everything on the site, including popular models like the Microsoft Surface and Apple MacBook Pro.

  • Argos(opens in a new tab) — Won’t have the range of deals that Amazon and Currys will offer, but you can often find little gems on Argos. We recommend keeping a close eye on Argos if you’re looking for deals on Chromebooks.

  • Curries(opens in a new tab) – Currys PC World offers real competition to Amazon when it comes to laptop deals, and we’re expecting another battle in 2022. You should be able to find plenty of deals for all the biggest laptop brands, including Apple, Microsoft, HP and more.

  • Dell(opens in a new tab) — You will definitely find tons of laptop deals at Dell during Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday. Dell has a reputation for producing high-quality devices, but they usually don’t come cheap. That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of Black Friday.

  • John Lewis(opens in a new tab) — This may not seem like the most obvious place to find laptop deals, but there are always plenty of offers from top brands to consider. In addition, John Lewis is normally one of the best retailers when it comes to warranties.

There will definitely be tons of deals elsewhere, but you’ll save yourself a lot of time and energy by prioritizing these sites.

What were the best laptop and tablet deals in 2021?

Last year, we saw deals on the most popular laptops and tablets during Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, with no incredible offers. We’re still hoping for something big in 2022, and Apple deals are sure to get everyone excited.

Something we saw a lot last year was deals on Amazon’s range of tablets, and we expect to see more of the same in 2022. You will once again be able to buy heavily discounted Fire tablets for you and your family. There were also plenty of decent discounts on Kindle e-readers in 2021, so you should be ready for that again. We know Kindles aren’t quite tablets, but they’re close. Just like last year, Amazon is also offering deals on accessories such as protective cases, pens and stands.

We can’t exactly predict what’s going to happen this year, but if you want to stay up to date with the best laptop and tablet deals, you’ll need to bookmark this page. We’ll be bringing you the best deals during Black Friday so you can walk away with the biggest discounts on everything on your wish list.
