LIVE – Updated at 14:47
Black Friday has finally arrived, and we’re now into the second day of the shopping event. The likes of Currys, Amazon, Argos and John Lewis are continuing to drop stellar savings across this entire weekend, and this will all culminate in Cyber Monday deals.
There are currently thousands of discounts to be had across everything from TVs, Apple, laptops, gaming consoles and tech to fashion, beauty, home appliances and mattresses, and even more savings will be rolling in thick and fast.
To save you from endlessly scrolling, our team of IndyBest deal-hunters are on hand to guide you through the discounts and find the sales that really are worth your time and money. We won’t be sharing deals that we don’t think are genuinely good. So, whether you’re in the market for a dehumidifier, a Dyson vacuum cleaner or a Ninja air fryer, we’re here to help.
But remember, it’s only a saving if it’s on something you really need or have wanted for a long time – there are no bargains to be had on a product that will sit at the back of the kitchen cupboard, never to see the light of day. Happy shopping!

14:45 , Alex Lee
It’s getting real cold now, and we’re still refusing to turn on our heating. Thankfully for us, the Oodie is currently on sale, so we might just survive the winter.
The Oodie, grey: Was £89, now £59, Theoodie.co.uk
Securing a spot in our round-up of the best blanket hoodies, we found the oversized hoodie to be “very oversized, cocooning our 6ft tester down to the knees.” Complete with a hood, sleeves and practical front pouch, the hoodie is finished in a plush soft-to-touch flannel fleece with sherpa fleece lining the inside.
“Large enough to curl beneath it on the sofa but still sufficiently fitted and lightweight to move around the house while working from home, the Oodie will be a saviour when temperatures plummet,” said our tester. Our only gripe was its not-so pocket-friendly price, but now you can save 35 per cent for Black Friday.

Dash cam Black Friday deals

You only have to spend a few minutes looking at YouTube to know there are some dreadful drivers on our roads.

There’s a rare deal on the Xbox series X console, and it might not last long
14:00 , Alex Lee
While other popular gaming consoles have risen in price owing to inflation (we’re looking at you, PlayStation 5), the Xbox series X price has remained the same.
This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen the next-gen console fall to, and it might not last long. Xbox’s boss has hinted that it could go up in price after Christmas, so this might be the last time you can get it with a discount. Savings next year might bring the price down to its current RRP (£449.99) instead of the low price it’s at now. Snap it up while you can.
Phil Spencer hints at future Xbox Game Pass or console price increases at WSJ Live
“I do think at some point we’ll have to raise the prices on certain things, but going into this holiday we thought it was important to maintain the prices.”

For the console gamers out there, you’ll know how difficult it has been to get your hands on a next-generation console in recent years. The PlayStation 5 still sells out in a snap, and the Xbox series X was the same until earlier this year.

At the start of the week, a couple of retailers discounted the AirPods pro 2 by £10. It was an exciting time, considering the AirPods pro 2 were only released in September and have never gone on sale before.

The brand claims you can do both of your legs in just five minutes thanks to its speedy 0.5 seconds IPL flashes, and it comes with two settings. There are four attachment caps included, which should help you cover everything from legs, arms, chest and back to the face, armpit and bikini areas.

Tuck into a sweet treat with this Hotel Chocolat velvetiser saving
04:00 , Helen Wilson-Beevers
‘Tis the season to sip hot chocolate, and preferably while watching a Christmas film too. So, we were happy to see an almost 30 per cent saving on Hotel Chocolat’s ever-popular velvetiser hot chocolate machine.
Hotel Chocolat 472756 velvetiser hot chocolate machine: Was £109.95, now £79, Amazon.co.uk
First thing’s first – and to answer the questions that’s probably on your lips – a velvetiser is similar to a milk frother. It works by simultaneously beating and whisking the milk and hot chocolate together to create a silky smooth mixture with a frothy top.
We got our hands on this particular model last year and our reviewer is obsessed. “We loved the resulting hot chocolate from the velvetiser. It was rich and frothy and felt really luxurious.” They said. “The best bit could have been that it was an even combination throughout, without those little sticky powder bits at the bottom which you usually get. You definitely take things up a notch from your standard mix of milk and powder.”
This Amazon Black Friday deal sees the machine’s price reduced by 28 per cent, or a little over £30. The machine comes bundled with 10 single servings of hot chocolate (with milky, salted caramel, classic and hazelnut options), and two ceramic mugs.

For Black Friday, the hair tool has been slashed to just £188.99 (that’s a whopping 30 per cent saving) at Dyson’s official eBay certified refurbished hub – a marketplace where you can find like-new products sold at discounted prices. It’s not only cheaper but you’re also covered with a year’s warranty. There is no denying the appeal of the coveted hair dryer, which our reviewer described as “powerful and versatile”. It “drastically decreases the amount of time spent drying your hair and leaves it far shinier and healthier than the majority of hair dryers”.

Save 45% on a Simba mattress
Friday 25 November 2022 21:46 , Steve Hogarty
Mattresses in a box are so popular that it’s hard to believe there are still people out there who haven’t bought one yet. If that’s you, then get ready to rest easy: you can save hundreds of pounds on a wide range of them in the early Black Friday sales. One such deal is from Simba, whose king-size hybrid pro mattress has been reduced by a massive £450. Other sizes have been discounted by the same percentage.
Simba hybrid pro mattress, king size: Was £999, now £549.45, Simbasleep.com
“We were thoroughly impressed with this hybrid mattress,” noted our reviewer. With “edge-to-edge support and no trail-off towards the sides”, the “multi-zoned foam layer at the base adjusts to movements and body shape to ensure you’re held in all the right places”. This is “Simba’s second-thickest mattress, so it’s definitely at the more luxurious end of the spectrum”, so benefiting from the discount will be more than worth it.
There’s £50 off the Nothing Phone (1)
Friday 25 November 2022 20:44 , Steve Hogarty
The Nothing Phone (1) is on sale at its lower ever price for Black Friday. The achingly cool designer Android phone, the name of which makes us feel like we have an unread notification, is down from £399 to £349.
Nothing Phone (1): Was £399, now £349, Amazon.co.uk
Launched earlier this year, the Nothing Phone (1) is a genuinely unique looking device. It has a pattern of LED lights on the back, which illuminate and flash depending on the kinds of notifications you’re getting. It runs on a modified version of Android that’s designed to be streamlined and fast, and feels a little bit like it’s come from the future.
On top of all the flashing lights, it’s also a great phone. In our Nothing Phone (1) review, we called it a “a perfectly decent mid-range Android phone with a great design and a premium finish. Proof that affordable needn’t mean boring, it’s perhaps the most exciting cheap phone we’ve ever tested.”
Get £20 off the most advanced Xbox ever
Friday 25 November 2022 20:29 , Steve Hogarty
This would have been unthinkable earlier in the year when the console was in such short supply it would sell out almost instantly, but right now the Xbox series X has £20 off at Very.
Xbox series X console: Was £449.99, now £429.99, Very.co.uk
The popular console has seen stock shortages earlier this year, but luckily those have long since been resolved and you can now save £20 on what Xbox says is its fastest, most powerful console ever at Very. Thousands of titles from the brand’s four generations of consoles can be played on the series X. Our tech writer Steve Hogarty said in his review: “ If you’re invested in your back catalogue of Xbox games and want to see them at their absolute finest, and to be primed for what comes next, the Xbox Series X is the best way to play”. You can purchase the console alone or add in the wireless controller, a GamePass Ultimate for three months and other extras.
Black Friday electric toothbrush deals
Friday 25 November 2022 17:16 , Steve Hogarty
You have to stay on your toes when shopping for toothbrushes. There are some absolutely wild prices out there, and a little bit of chicanery too. The Oral-B io10 (£349.99, Very.co.uk) appears to have a whopping £450 off this Black Friday, but it’s almost always on sale at half-price and is hardly ever seen at the full £800 RRP. As if anyone would ever pay that much.
Our advice? Shop toward the lower end of the market. More expensive brushes have nice features, but an electric toothbrush is an electric toothbrush. They’ll all get your teeth clean. We’ve got more in our Black Friday toothbrush deals guide.
Oral-B vitality plus cross action blue electric toothbrush: Was £39.99, now £19.99, Very.co.uk
At less than £20 for Black Friday, this toothbrush by Oral-B is worth snapping up soon. With more than 800 five-star reviews, this brush features an oscillating head to deliver a super clean feel and promises to remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush.
How to get more than £100 off the Dyson airwrap complete
Friday 25 November 2022 14:55 , Daisy Lester
Dyson airwrap complete: Was £349.99, now £244.99, Ebay.co.uk
Naturally, the styler landed a spot in our review of the best hot brushes, with our writer noting that it’s “arguably one of the most popular hair tools on the market since its launch in 2018”. There are six attachments to choose from, with our tester’s favourite being the original barrels as they provide a “soft, voluminous, light curl”.
The tool is “very lightweight, with a slim barrel that doesn’t leave your arm feeling tired, while customisable heat and power settings work extremely quickly to deliver your desired style”, added our writer. Achieving a “bouncy blow-dry look took just 15 minutes”, and better still, it’s very quiet, so “you can use it without disturbing anyone”. It sounds like a no-brainer for anyone who’s looking to achieve a salon-quality finish at home.
Sold directly from Dyson on eBay, it’s been certified refurbished and not only can you benefit from the impressive £105 saving, and you’re covered by a one-year guarantee.
