1. Dyson Black Friday Sale

T3's Home Editor, Bethan, has recommended Dyson's Black Friday sale as the one to keep an eye on this year. Dyson rarely have sales throughout the year, so Black Friday is the one event where it goes all out. This year, the brand has discounted some of their best-selling vacuum cleaners, from the Dyson V8 to the Dyson Gen5detect. The savings range from £80 all the way through to £180, so there's going to be bargain on whatever model you're looking for. 

If you're hoping to grab a hair tool, the only product in the sale is the
Dyson Corrale straightener. However, we're keeping an eye on this and will let you know if the Airwrap or Supersonic become discounted as well.

2. Grind Black Friday Sale

As a huge coffee lover, my personal recommendation would have to be Grind's Black Friday sale. You may have seen Grind before, or recognise its aesthetically pleasing packaging, but you probably haven't heard about its incredible discounts. 

Grind make home-compostable coffee pods for Nespresso machines, which break down extremely fast in a compost or food waste bin. All of the coffee in them is ethically sourced from sustainable farms around the world. They're a much better alternative to the original Nespresso pods, who only recently began offering a recycling service to its users. 

Not only have Grind reduced some of its best-sellers, including the Bulk Box (100 altogether) and the Christmas 60 Coffee Pods, but its applied a whopping 25% off on every single order. All you have to do is pop in the code BLACK25 when checking out, and the bargain is yours!

3. Bose Black Friday Sale

As Tech Staff Writer, Andy's recommendation has to be Bose's Black Friday sale. Bose produces some of the best headphones, Bluetooth speakers and soundbars on the market, and you can find some great deals on the top picks right now in its Black Friday sale. There are some particularly great deals on refurbished tech, meaning you'd be buying direct from the manufacturer with the same guarantee and warranty, just with a lower price tag.

Worth a particular mention is a chunky £90 discount on the Bose QuietComfort II earbuds. These five-star buds feature truly astounding noise-cancellation technology that can help you lose yourself in your music, podcast or audiobook easier than ever. While if you’re after an all-in-one solution to your living room’s audio setup, the Bose Soundbar 600 is another easy recommendation with £150 off!
