Create a Black Friday wish-list

The best thing about Black Friday is that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to fantastic deals. But, on the other hand, the sheer number of options can stir confusion about what to buy.

The best way to prepare for the big day is to create a wish-list with all the items you hope to get your hands on (you can do this via the Currys PC World app). This way, you’ll know exactly what to make a beeline for when the Black Friday deals start rolling in. It needn’t mean you can’t be impulsive once you’ve ticked off the items on your list though!

Keep calm with the ultimate Black Friday playlist

Snapping up the best deals can feel like a joyride, but also leave you feeling flustered. So, whether you’re heading in store or browsing the Black Friday sales online, pop your headphones on and listen to some calming music. For the most Zen shopping experience possible, choose from some of the below options:


  • Beautiful piano music
  • Tranquil sounds of nature
  • Peaceful instrumental tracks
  • Chilled electronic beats
  • The soothing tones of David Attenborough’s voice
Kickstart your Christmas shopping

If you’re someone who leaves your Christmas shopping until the last minute, the thought of buying presents in November might sound absurd, but it’s a brilliant opportunity to make some savings.

It pays to be organised, so think ahead while you’re browsing the Black Friday sales. While you might be hoping to nab a new laptop for yourself, perhaps your partner would love a smartwatch for Christmas, or your parents a new coffee machine?

Use these handy excuses for shopping

If you’re having trouble convincing your loved ones – or boss – of the importance of nabbing a half-price dishwasher or discounted games console this Black Friday, here are some handy excuses to keep them at bay while you shop the sales:

  • Tell your boss: “I’m just doing some research on consumer behaviour.”
  • Tell your partner: “I won’t shop for the rest of the year, I swear!”
  • Tell your parents: “Look how much money we’ve just saved!”
  • Tell yourself: “Just one more item and then I’ll stop…”

Not only can you expect to find the best TV deals in the Currys TV sale, but we’ll have Black Tag discounts running in the lead up to the big day, which will see prices reduced across many major television brands.

Browse our QLED/OLED deals, and 8k/4k deals for great prices on top-end technology that takes your viewing experience to the next level with picture quality that exhibits realistic detail and vibrant, contrasting colour. "4K" denotes the nearly 4,000 pixels – or dots – that make up the horizontal plane on the TV display - an innovation that leads to a clearer, crisper image. Naturally, “8k” is an amplified version – with a resolution of 8,000 pixels.

The PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X are specifically designed with 4K viewing in mind, while the brand-new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X both support 8k graphics. What’s more, the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime have been bumping their shows from HD (1080p) to Ultra-HD (4K).  

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a TV with app compatibility and a smart assistant, take a look at the Currys smart TV deals. Experience the future of television with the capability to connect to online content and even use voice command to control your TV via Google Home, Bixby or Alexa.
