The biggest deals this year include a massive 2kg Cadbury chocolate box that's cheaper than Sainsbury's, and Ugg slippers, which have been slashed to as little as £30. Amazon's hero deal is the 55" Fire TV, which is now its cheapest price ever, having been reduced down from £550 to £150.

The best coffee machine deal
Amazon has dropped a huge £70 off a popular De'Longhi machine which drinkers say makes a great at-home brew with some going as far to say it's just as good as Starbucks.
It's all part fo Amazon's whirlwind Black Friday discounts, which it propelled to eager shoppers early today (November 17) a week ahead of the official date next Friday, November 24. And as Nespresso, Salter, Tassimo and Breville coffee machines prove popular this year the Prime retailer has gone with an affordable De'Longhi model.
It's now £70 cheaper as the price is reduced from an original £109.99 to just £39.99, making it one of the cheapest pod-style coffee makers on the market. Usually, it's recommended for shoppers to spend time comparing the prices on a deal before heading straight to a checkout but this £39.99 is expected to fly off the shelves, as John Lewis and Nescafe are already out of stock.
Dyson Airwrap is now half price
Our flagged by our fashion and beauty team have been busy checking on Dyson Airwrap deals. They are difficult to find because Dyson rarely discounts but there is a way to get the price down to £239.99 from its usual price of £479.99.
The trick is to take a look on eBay and pick a refurbished model. These renewed devices are usually £399.99, saving £80 off a new styler year round, but this Black FridayeBay is offering shoppers a further 40 per cent off top refurbished Dyson products with the code DYSONBF40.
Live from today until December 1, assuming stocks last this go around, savvy shoppers can save 50 per cent off the full price of the Airwrap, coming in at £239.99 with the code.
The code is also valid on other hair styling products from the premium brand, taking the price of the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer to £167.99 (down by 49%) and offering a saving of £256 on the Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener down to just £143.99.
Get £20 off the price of the PS5 Slim preorder - but only if you're quick
Gamers assemble, while this isn't technically a Black Friday deal, Currys has just announced a cracking PS5 Slim pre-order deal which drops the price of Sony's new console down to just £459. Shoppers need to use the Slim20 at checkout to take £20 off the £479 price we've seen elsewhere.
The new version of the PS5 will be on many a Christmas list this year, with pre-orders going live on Thursday for an expected launch on Wednesday, November 29. This Currys discount is the best pre-order deal we've seen for those in the UK so far.

The best iPhone 15 deal
Spotted by tech experts on Mobiles.co.uk, The Express and The Mirror the deal from iD Mobile is just £50 more than Apple's handset-only price despite including 250GB of data each month for a whole two years. It costs £29.99 a month and includes the iPhone 15 (most importantly), 250GB of data, unlimited calls and texts.
One which has certainly caught our eye, especially as Apple usually shies away from dropping prices during Black Friday and instead only offers vouchers to use on separate purchases. It also works out £737 cheaper than a similar iPhone 15 deal over at EE, that only has 100GB of data too.

Top headphone deals
The Sony WF-C500 have been dubbed the 'best cheap wireless headphones on the market' by reviewers and usually cost £90 on Amazon. They very briefly dropped to below £43 last year for a couple of days only and now Amazon has cut the price to its lowest level in a year.
The headphones are £45 in the Amazon Black Friday sale after initially being reduced to £55 in the last few weeks. The headphones are the most cost-effective in the Sony wireless range, sitting below the WF-C700N, Linkbuds S and the range-topping WF-1000XMS. With a 20 hour battery life and fast charging, they are one of a number of headphone deals in the new Amazon sale.
