The Black Friday deals (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), Argos (opens in new tab), Currys (opens in new tab), John Lewis (opens in new tab), ASOS (opens in new tab) 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.
