This year's Argos Black Friday deals are nearly here, and we're expecting to see great savings on TVs, phones, smart home devices, and toys. Argos itself is already teasing shoppers with hints of what to expect this year, but we have some predictions of our own based on last year's deals.
Some of the best Black Friday deals at Argos last year included £160 off Simba mattresses, £50 off the iPhone 8, and £40 off Garmin Vivosport fitness trackers. There were also huge discounts on smart home tech, TVs, and piles upon piles of Lego.
Low prices aren't the only reason to shop at Argos on Black Friday though. This year the store is offering a few extras to tempt deal-hunters, including the ability to snag some great deals on Black Friday and pay for them gradually over time with its own Argos card.
Argos also offers free returns in-store for 30 days (no messing around with return postage), and you can pick up your Argos Black Friday bargains in person rather than waiting around for a courier. That's a huge advantage when delivery services are stretched to breaking point.
We'll be rounding up all the best Argos Black Friday deals, so bookmark this page and check back regularly to make sure you don't miss out.
When will the Argos Black Friday deals start?
Black Friday itself takes place on November 29, but we expect Argos to start its Black Friday deals well before then.
Last year it released its first deals on November 18 and kept the discounts going well past Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
However, it pays to move fast – the very best deals may only be available for a brief period, and some might sell out quickly. We'll be updating this page every day with the best deals, so come back and check frequently.

The best Argos Black Friday TV deals from 2018
Argos’s TV range tends to focus on the most mainstream sizes, so if you’re looking for a big discount on an eleventy billion-inch OLED it’s probably not the Black Friday destination for you. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t big discounts on big sets last year.
Argos chopped £150 off Philips’ 58PUS6203 58-inch smart TV, taking it down to £449, and it dropped the price of LG’s 65-inch LED HDR by £170, down to £629.
Argos offered some nice deals on audio-visual components and accessories too, and it also discounted the Now TV Stick, which with two months of Sky Cinema, and a one-day sports pass was half price at just £14.99.
Hitachi 43-inch Smart Ultra HD 4K
£369.99 £279.99 at Argos
You could get nearly £100 off this 43-inch 4K TV from Hitachi at Argos on Black Friday 2018 - so far we haven't been able to find it cheaper elsewhere.
The best Argos Black Friday PS4 deals from 2018
Expect some big savings on PS4s at Argos this Black Friday: we’re coming to the end of this particular console generation and that means significant reductions.
We saw that last year, with deals such as the VR Worlds bundle dropping from £350 to £179 and the PS4 Red Dead Redemption bundle dropping from £299 to £219.
There were some nice deals on PS4 games too, so for example you could pick up the brilliantly weird Nier: Automata for just £15.99. Rise of the Tomb Raider was down to just £11.99, and even the latest FIFA was discounted, down from £52 to £38.99.
PlayStation VR PS4 camera VR Worlds
£350 £179.99 at Argos
Considering the VR headset was £350 at launch, this bundle has come a long way as it includes the PS4 camera (which is required for PSVR to function in the first place) and a copy of VR Worlds, it was a fine selection of minigames to get you going on Black Friday 2018.
The best Argos Black Friday Xbox One deals from 2018
We reckon you’ll see some sweet Xbox One deals at Argos this Black Friday too. Last year the 1TB Xbox One S with Minecraft and Forza Horizon was down from £249 to £179.99, and the Battlefield V and Fortnite Xbox One S bundles were both £179 too.
The 1TB Xbox One S with two controllers dropped from £249 to £179.99, and there were hefty discounts on Xbox One games: Call of Duty: WWII dropped from £49.99 to £22.99, the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy from £29.99 to £22.99, and Forza Horizon 4 from £40.99 to £26.99.
Argos Black Friday gaming discounts weren’t just on the big-name consoles. Sega’s Mega Drive Flashback was down from £49.99 to £44.99, while the Oculus Go dropped from £199.99 to £169.99.
Keep an eye out for peripherals, too: Black Friday at Argos often means discounts on controllers and gaming headphones.

The best Argos Black Friday laptop deals from 2018
Argos is particularly good for family-friendly laptops, and you can expect to see some decent discounting on laptops from household names such as HP and Lenovo.
Last year the HP 15.6-inch E2 laptop dropped from an already decent £279.99 to a super-cheap £229.99, and there were discounts across the Lenovo IdeaPad range: the 330S Core i5 dropped from £579.99 to £449.99 and the supremely portable IdeaPad 130S 11.6-inch laptop dropped from £179.99 to just £119.99.
There were some nice discounts on Chromebooks and gaming laptops too: the cool Acer Chromebook R11 fell to just £209.99 from the usual £279.99.
Lenovo Ideapad 130s laptop
£179.99 £119.99 at Argos
The Ideapad 130s is designed for life on the go, with a slim, lightweight build and eight hours of battery life. It features an HD LED screen, dual core processor, and runs Microsoft Windows 10s. Argos cut £60 off the price for Black Friday 2018
The best Argos Black Friday tablet deals from 2018
You don’t need to go to Amazon to get money off a Kindle Fire tablet on Black Friday. Last year Argos offered deep discounting on Amazon devices including £20 off the Fire 7, bringing it down to £29.99.
It discounted iPads too, although not by massive amounts: the iPad 9.7 (2018) was £20 off, bringing the price down to £299. We’d expect to see similar discounting on Amazon and Apple devices for Black Friday 2019 too.
Acer’s Iconia One was down too – from £179.99 to £129.99 – and with Argos currently showcasing a wide range of Android tablets we think we’ll see some decently discounted models this Black Friday.
Apple iPad 9.7 (2018):
£319 now £299 at Argos
It's rare to see any sort of discount on Apple products, so £20 off the latest iPad is somewhat of a coup. The same deal was available at John Lewis with an added two-year guarantee, but JL raised its price again, making Argos the best value on Black Friday 2018.
