Where to Buy a DAB Radio on Black Friday 2018

Black Friday 2018 falls on the 23rd of November, and is expected to be one of the biggest shopping days of the year as thousands of retailers offer deals and discounts. Black Friday is followed by Cyber Monday on the 26th of November, when many online retailers will be offering even more deals.

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the US, and has traditionally been a big shopping day in the States. The tradition of Black Friday sales only caught on in the UK recently, largely thanks to online retailers such as Amazon.

Last year’s Black Friday broke records, and 2018’s is expected to be even bigger. While Black Friday itself is the 23rd of November, many retailers will be running sales for longer periods of time, so it’s best to keep an eye out for deals before and after Black Friday rather than just looking on the day itself.

Black Friday

Online vs. High Street

Black Friday in the UK is a bigger deal (pun intended) online than on the high street, but most major high street shops also offer deals. Visiting electronics shops and department stores is a good idea if you want to try a radio out and see exactly what it looks like before you buy it.

Some high street retailers such as Argos and John Lewis offer a click and collect service where you can buy or reserve an item online and then collect it in store, which can be more convenient than having it delivered.

How to Spot a Good Black Friday Deal

Black Friday deals can be deceptive, and deals aren’t always as good as they seem. According to Which?, 60% of 2017’s Black Friday deals could be found at the same price or less at other times of the year.

Since the Black Friday sales only run for a limited amount of time, there’s also the pressure to panic buy before the sale finishes. Here are some tips for getting a good deal:

  • Compare prices – If you see what looks like a great deal it can be tempting just to hit ‘Buy’ before someone else snaps it up. However, it’s always a good idea to compare the price with other retailers before buying. If you’re looking at radios in a physical shop, it’s a good idea to compare their prices with online prices before buying.
  • Check warranties – Like all electronics items, DAB radios can develop faults, so it’s worth buying from a retailer that offers a good warranty even if it’s slightly more expensive.
  • Track prices – It’s a good idea to decide which products you are interested in before Black Friday, and then compare their prices during the sale with historical prices. You could even use a service such as CamelCamelCamel, which lets you track Amazon prices so you can make sure you’re actually getting a good deal.
