More than any other year before it the best Black Friday deals have arrived extra early, with major brands and retailers in on the action. The Argos sale is now live in the UK and there are stacks of deals to sift through – except you needn't, as the T3 team has done the hard work for you.
Our expert team has been in the tech game for decades of combined experience, so we know good products when we see them – indeed we review hundreds each year, as per our How We Test page – and below we've picked out a top five from Argos' Black Friday sales that are the best of best.
- Up to 50%+ off vacuum cleaners incl Shark, Bosch & Henry at Argos
- Up to 50% off air fryers from Tefal, Ninja, Tower & more at Argos
- Big savings on top Lego sets: Star Wars, Spider-Man & more at Argos
Beats Studio 3:
was £229.99, now £99.99 at Argos
The T3 team has an affinity for Beats headphones – and if you're looking for affordable noise-cancelling cans then Argos has the biggest discount of any retailer on the Studio 3 over-ears. With so many other headphones manufacturers charging four times that, this sale price is a steal.
Sony PS5 Spider-Man 2 bundle:
was £499, now £399 at Argos
The PS5 is a generation-defining console that has changed the game. T3's Tech Staff Writer loves its unique features, such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. This bundle also comes with the brand new Spider-Man 2 game, which makes this bundle extra great as you needn't fork out an extra £60 for this ace new title! Elsewhere you can find the console only for £10 or £20 less, if that appeals more.
Horizon Forbidden West (PS5):
was £69.99, now £19.99 at Argos
If you like the PS5 deal above and want to add another epic game – it's T3 Tech Editor's fave release of 2022 – then the PlayStation-exclusive Horizon sequel is a stunning title at an even more stunning price. Playing as Aloy, you'll traverse a futuristic world filled with robotic dinosaurs and try to solve a potentially apocalyptic issue. No other retailer is selling for as little as this.
was £129.99, now £59.99 at Argos
Here's an exclusive AV deal you won't find as cheap at any other retailer right now (at the time of writing): Roku's miniature soundbar – which we described as "ideal for a small setup" in our T3 expert review – is heavily discounted. So if you've got a small TV but need bigger sound this is an ideal and affordable bargain to bag!
Philips Hue colour bulb:
was £54.99, now £34.99 at Argos
Many of the T3 team have Philips Hue smart bulbs, which can be easily controlled through a smart home setup. The coloured ones, such as this B22 bayonet (screw fit is also available) are typically expensive, so it's great to see the price down to a considerably more affordable level.
Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Gen):
was £99, now £49.99 at Argos
T3's Tech Editor has been using Ring for years, having even hard-wired the product in to avert any battery-changing needs, and finds it a game-changer for deliveries to the front door (there's a lot of tech parcels coming and going in this job). This half-price deal is a no-brainer that's at a gift-level price point ahead of the holiday period.
Meta Quest 2:
was £399, now £249 at Argos
Fancy yourself a slice of virtual reality? Meta's previous-generation headset – it can't do the more advanced augmented reality of the Quest 3 that launched more recently (a long-time T3 freelancer compares Quest 2 to Quest 3 here) – is a great route into classic VR. It doesn't need a PC or other setup stations for calibration either, which makes it great value for the whole family.
Google Pixel 7a:
was £449, now £379 at Argos
"Affordable Android doesn't get better than this" exclaimed T3's review of the Pixel 7a. It's got the power, the cameras and the looks to impress. T3's Staff Writer went on to write about why the Pixel 7a was his 'obsession', so it's a much-loved mid-level Android handset among the team here. Especially in one of the brighter colourways.
LG OLED A2 48-inch:
was £999, now £799 at Argos
There's no doubt that LG makes among the best OLED TVs that money can buy – which is why the T3 team selected the brand as number one in that expert guide. While the C2 OLED was a fan-favourite last year, if you're looking for a more affordable bargain then the step-down LG A2 OLED delivers similar picture quality and is an easy recommendation in the sales.
While the T3 team has hand-picked these Argos deals, you may find their prices are matched by other retailers. Check out the shopping widgets below to see if there are preferable prices or retailer preferences for your needs.
And let's not forget: during the Black Friday sales we'll likely see flash deals on various products and price fluctuations based on stock too.
