Black Friday furniture deals 2020
Welcome to Black Friday 2020. While this big shopping event used to be a weekend-only thing, it’s likely to stretch across the month of November – and we’re already spotting odd deals appearing on sites such as Amazon and Argos.
Marks & Spencer Black Friday furniture deals
Breaking news! Marks & Spencer are not participating in this year’s Black Friday. It’s a great shame, in previous years, M&S offered 60 per cent off products across all its departments.
But fear not – they still have great seasonal discounts on furniture, including up to 50 per cent off sofas. These are some of our current favourites…
Habitat Black Friday furniture deals
Habitat don’t scrimp when it comes to discounts, and last year offered up to 44 per cent off their stylish lines over Black Friday weekend. This year we will expect similar savings on sofas, dining and storage furniture. There are often also some amazing offers on rugs and lighting.
John Lewis Black Friday furniture deals
John Lewis says that its commitment to being ‘never knowingly undersold’ means that it matches its competitors’ prices all year round, so ‘even when it’s not Black Friday, we’ll have deals you can enjoy’.
However, we’re promised some excellent bargains in this year’s Black Friday sale. And for comparison, last year there was 20 per cent off all big-name brands, including Ercol, Bisley and Loaf over Black Friday week.
There will also be big discounts in beauty and fragrance, sport and leisure, electrical and fashion. All worth checking out to make valuable savings ahead of Christmas!
Amazon Black Friday furniture deals
Amazon’s own shopping holiday Amazon Prime Day took place just weeks ago, but there wasn’t a huge furniture offering. We are hoping all that will change as we build up towards Black Friday and will be paying particular attention to offers on pieces for the study and garden.

Black Friday Furniture deals 2020 – some extra tips
Check in store as well as online
For obvious reasons, 2020 has been THE year of online shopping. That said, some retailers are still tempting in-store customers with deals, and Black Friday shoppers may still find that a mix of online and store shopping will reap the best deals. Shoppers seem to prefer hunting out deals online on the day itself, but visit shops over the weekend when retailers continue to discount.
You may also spot some good ex-display offers from the likes of DFS, Next and so on, as Black Friday offers a first good opportunity to start making way for 2021 stock.
How can I avoid being ripped off on Black Friday?
‘It’s easy to get carried away, so make a list of what you want in advance,’ advises Danny Munday, general manager of HotUKDeals. It also pays to read reviews and compare prices of the models you like, so you know you’re getting a genuine deal. ‘Check the shipping costs before you order, too,’ adds Danny. ‘Some brands charge so much for delivery, it cancels out any savings.’
Will my Black Friday purchases arrive by Christmas?
We are going to be honest here – if you are thinking of investing of a new sofa for Christmas and are looking for a deal on Black Friday, pay close attention to delivery dates. A lead time on a made-to-order sofa is a minimum of six-to-eight weeks, which equates to delivery in January or even February.
If you are keen for an item to be delivered sooner rather than later, you’ll have better luck with items that are off-the-shelf or ‘in the warehouse’. However, even then, you may be looking at a longer-than-usual delivery time given the increased pressure on courier services at this time of year.
It might even be best to go for in-store pick up, if that’s an option and you have a vehicle that can transport larger items.
How should I pay for my Black Friday purchases?
For example – you buy a sofa. When it arrives, it’s faulty. Or perhaps it never arrives because the retailer goes bust (a sad but distinct possibility in these uncertain times). Either way, you’ll be able to claim a refund through your credit card company. This also applies if you pay a proportion on your credit card (say, a deposit) but the rest in cash or on a debit card.
