Online giants Amazon have soared ahead of competitors by releasing their Black Friday goods 12 days early. Over a thousand Amazon Marketplace sellers are due to take part in the sale by slashing the prices on everything from HD TVs, GoPro accessories, Apple products and more.

Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager at Amazon said: “In response to positive customer feedback for Black Friday deals, we are introducing The Black Friday Sale – 12 days of fantastic deals on must-have gifts and products, saving our customers millions of pounds.”

EBay and Argos are also due to be major players in the tech sales with up to 50% off expected throughout. EBay are offering the Sony CMTS20BMK Sound System for just £99.99, while Argos have revealed a £60 saving on the Apple iPhone 6s.

To make your Christmas spending that little bit easier, many fashion retailers are offering four days of deals from Friday, right through to Cyber Monday.

Customers can expect price-crashing deals with the likes of high street leaders Topshop and French Connection offering up to 50% off clothing goods.

Boots and The Body Shop are also getting on board by offering half price cuts on hundreds of selected beauty items.

Thinking of jetting off during the dreary British winter? Airlines and travel agents are set to release staggering price drops with major flight operators previously offering £2 one way flights to Europe.

With Thomson, Thomson Cruises and First Choice being likely to offer promotional codes over the weekend, some firms, however, will simply cut prices across the board. Last year British Airways Holidays offered £100 off all standard bookings.

Virgin Trains will also be offering 200,000 discounted tickets, with standard tickets on offer from £5, £10 and £15.
