It’s actually a little hard to believe that Black Friday is nearly here again. What started out as a single day of insanely priced gadgets, is now a week-long sales event for online retailers. Noone does both Black Friday and the days preceding it like Amazon.co.uk.
When is Black Friday 2017?
Officially, Black Friday 2017 falls on Friday 24 November. However, retailers love them a bit of Black Friday so the week preceding that date now also boasts plenty of largely discounted offerings, so Black Friday for many starts on Friday 17 November.
Don’t forget, you also have Cyber Monday. Black Friday, the week before and Cyber Monday are generally available in-store and online with the exception of Cyber Monday being largely limited to online retailers.
Why Shop on Amazon.co.uk?
Nearly every retailer goes bonkers for Black Friday but few go as big as Amazon. You might not think of Amazon as a great place for Irish shoppers to venture towards because they don’t officially service Ireland. Thanks to services like Parcel Motel and their virtual UK address, it’s really easy to order items to Ireland from Amazon.co.uk, even if they only ship to the UK. You might even get fast and free UK delivery if you’re an Amazon Prime customer.
The Best Black Friday Deals on Amazon.co.uk
If you’re more than a little tempted to pick up some discount gadgets from Amazon, here are the top three we’d be going for.
Amazon Echo Dot
Amazon loves nothing more than pushing their own produce throughout Black Friday. You can pick up both the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot for a great price right now. For most, we believe the Echo Dor is more than enough for most people and you can pick that up with a 30% discount right now.

You might have spotted our article in the Independent recently which celebrated how amazing the WeMo Insight Smart-plug is. Well, that plug is a second generation model with the model that came before it is a little larger and doesn’t track power usage. While this means you’re losing some great benefits, you can pick up this first generation smart-plug with a 49% discount.
If you’re also picking up that Echo Dot, this WeMo device is fully compatible with Amazon’s voice-controlled assistant. While a slightly different model, here’s what we thought of the WeMo Insight smart-plug:
Logitech K400 Wireless Keyboard and Touchpad

Actually, the need to have these things in the house these days is higher than ever as they connect to Android boxes, laptops and all sorts.
If that all sounds like you, the Logitech K400 is a must have gadget and now you can pick it up along with a 40% discount from Amazon. Still on the fence? Check out Jon’s look at some of Logitech’s best wireless accessories.
