Black Friday 2017: Argos will host a 14-day Black Friday sale

A simple Google search for "best Black Friday deals" provides plenty of great information from sources that know what they're talking about.

"This year we have hundreds of small businesses from our Marketplace offering great deals on their unique and creative products, making it even easier to find flawless gifts with our Black Friday sale".

The Thanksgiving holiday is normally a time for comfort with the family but Black Friday has quickly become more of a black hole, sucking in everyone's gratitude and spitting out corporate greed. The $69.99 32-inch 720p TV is the cheapest TV advertised for Black Friday 2017 and the $159.99 49-inch 4k TV is the lowest priced 4K TV we have seen on Black Friday. With prices this good it'll be hard to resist. Black Friday advertising will be abundant, and the BBB urges consumers to watch for red flags. But the Connecticut Better Business Bureau said consumers need to comparison shop to make sure they aren't getting a raw deal.

"With so much attention focused on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, many retailers may overlook Sofa Sunday-an influential shopping day", said Curtis Tingle, chief marketing officer, Valassis, in the release. For instance, large retailers might apply their deepest discounts to TVs with a specific model number, which makes it hard to be sure you're doing an apples-to-apples comparison. "EBay's Deals program connects consumer demand with quality supply-with limited-time offers". That can mean the only way to benefit from the discount is if you are at the front of the lineup outside the store.

The new deals include discounts on tablets, HD TV/DVD combos, Dyson vacuum cleaners, Amazon Dot devices, Xbox One S consoles and many more besides.

"Sites like call out online and in-store event timing for every single store", Shelton told TODAY.

Everything starts a little earlier than you may expect too, as the Black Friday offers actually begin on Wednesday 15th November and will last a fortnight, finally coming to an end on Wednesday 29th November, which is in the middle of Cyber Monday week incidentally.

The PwC analysis has shown that although Black Friday is still the most important day of buying this week for vacation, the number of people who bought this day fell by 16 percent compared to the previous year and 24 percent since 2015.

So you're going to want to make sure you save some money over the weekend to take advantage of some of the best deals of the year online, from retailers like Amazon, ASOS, eBay, GAME and more. However, deals are likely to improve in quality and quantity as Black Friday approaches. Be aware that many retailers offer only "store credits" for returns.
