The Black Friday deals are in full force, giving customers a chance to grab some incredible deals on popular and best selling products. Searching through all the deals, retailers and percentage cuts can be very confusing. It confused me too when I first started Black Friday shopping.

My job as a Deals Writer is to find the best deals and discounts available, to save T3 readers huge amounts of money on quality brands and items. Reporting on Black Friday means I now know Amazon, Argos, Currys, John Lewis, ASOS and more like the back of my hand and I know how to find a good deal.

If you want some extra guidance this Black Friday on what is a good deal or what you should be shopping, below are some of my favourite deals that I’ll definitely be taking advantage of in the Black Friday sales.
