  • Combine Amazon’s Massive Black Friday Sale Event with AR View This Month

Online department store Takealot, which is notorious for bulking under the heavy weight of traffic on Black Friday every year, says it's beefing up its servers so shoppers don't miss out on the thousands of deals it has with discounts of up to 60%.

But when will this year's Black Friday take place in the United Kingdom, and which retailers will be putting on special deals.

Exciting offers we're set to see include the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th gen, which is now $1,809.00, down to $899.99 (that's really a mega saving), and the 17-inch Ideapad 330 gaming laptop, with GTX 1050 graphics card, to $599 from $729.99.

From tech and electrical appliances to beauty and fashion, Black Friday offers bargain prices on a range of sought after goods. If you want to skip the hassle of the store, the sales will also be available online starting Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 9 p.m.


We'll be sure to track the Walmart Black Friday deals as they come online, so stay tuned for TechRadar for alerts on the best deals as they happen.

On Monday, Amazon said it would offer free shipping with no purchase minimum for the first time this holiday season.

Noteworthy, upcoming promotions include a PS4 Slim 1TB Spiderman bundle for $199, an Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft bundle for $199, and a Google Home Mini for $25 (from $49).

Black Friday is a few weeks away and while shoppers prepare their pockets for the multitude of sales, big retailers have already left the starting block in their preparations. Wallmart says it will be handing out hot drinks and cookies two hours before the event kicks off on November 22, too.
