WH SMITH’S Black Friday sale helped shoppers save a bundle on their Christmas shopping last year.
The book and stationary seller stocks electronics and gifts in its online store, making it a sensible sale to browse again this November.
Just because a product is in a Black Friday sale, doesn’t mean you can find it, or something similar, cheaper elsewhere. Always shop around before you spend your money.
When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday 2020 is November 27 this year, with Cyber Monday folloing on November 30.
Black Friday always falls the day after the American holiday Thankgiving – the fourth Thursdy of the month.
Some retailers will kick off their sales days, a week, or even two weeks early, while WH Smith waited until the day before Black Friday last year.

What to expect from WHSmith’s Black Friday offers
WH Smith has yet to confirm that it will take part in this year’s Black Friday event, but it does have a static page live on its website.
We would expect the retailer to take part, and to offer discounts similar to those of last year.
That could mean savings on seasonal gifting and books, as well as discounts on the retailer’s electronics category.
Buy-one-get one half-price offers were a feature last year, as were vouchers on specific spends.
What was in WHSmith’s Black Friday sale last year?
Last year shoppers at WHSmith could receive a free £5 voucher if they spent £30 online, and a £10 voucher if they spent £50 online over the 2019 Black Friday weekend (November 29 to December 2).
All shoppers had to do to claim the offer was use the code Black19 at checkout.
As well as its voucher offers, Smiths had an up to 80 per cent off sale on Christmas gifting books, as well as buy one get one half price on Christmas gifts and buy one get one free on photo albums and frames.
We even saw electronics being discunted by the retailer, with savings on Apple Airpods.
