As part of its annual Black Friday event, Currys PC World is slashing its prices, promising big discounts on everything from laptops and TVs to washing machines and stand mixers.
The retailer has also announced a Black Friday price guarantee – so if you see any product on the website cheaper on Black Friday than it is now, Currys promises to refund the price difference.
But it’s important to remember that some Black Friday bargains aren’t always as good as they seem, with items often found cheaper at other times of the year.
To save you time and money, our experts have rounded up a few of the best Currys Black Friday deals for 2019. You can also check whether these products are right for you by taking a look at our rigorous and independent reviews to find out how each product performed in our lab tests.
We’ll update this page as new offers are announced in the run-up to Black Friday.
Currys PC World Black Friday TV deals
LG OLED55C9MLB – was £1,799, now £1,299 (28% off)
We liked: precise picture, dynamic sound
We didn’t like: the slow electronic programme guide (EPG)
Like most TVs, the cost of the LG OLED55C9MLB has dropped gradually since it launched earlier this year. But this Currys Black Friday deal price is the lowest we’ve seen it, making it a great option if you’re looking for an OLED TV that won’t break the bank. But is it a nightmare to use?
Samsung QE43Q60R – was £699, now £529 (24% off)
We liked: easy to use, balanced contrast
We didn’t like: popping bass
If you’re after some top-tier tech without a massive screen, this 43-inch Samsung could be for you. It cost £899 when it launched in the spring , but the price has been dropping slowly since. We’ve spotted it for £599 before, but you’re still £20 better off with this Currys Black Friday deal. Is the picture quality good enough for you, though?

- LG 49SM8200PLA – was £649, now £499 (23% off)
- LG 55SM8200PLA– was £799, now £599 (25% off)
- LG 65SM8200PLA – was £1,149, now £799 (30% off)
Currys PC World Black Friday internet TV box deals
Sky NowTV Smart Box with 4K – was £49, now £24.99 (49% off)
We liked: flawless sound, excellent colours
We didn’t like: creating a NowTV account can be tedious
At £25, this Currys Black Friday deal is notable but not mind-blowing. If you’ve had your eye on a NOW TV box anyway, it’s worth snapping up. But don’t panic buy – it will probably drop to this price again later in the year.
Sky’s NowTV smart box comes with 4K support and voice search, but does it have the right suite of apps for you?
Currys PC World Black Friday laptop deals
HP Pavilion x360 14-dh (14-dh0516sa) – was £549, now £449 (18% off)
We liked: Versatile design
We didn’t like: Poor speakers
Whether you’re using it as a tablet or as a do-it-all laptop, a 2-in-1 offers versatility that other computers just can’t match. Currys is selling this one at £449, giving you a saving of £100. This is a reasonable price – but only if the laptop has everything you need. Take a look at our review to find out how it fared in our lab tests.
HP 14-ce – was £649, now £499 (22% off)
We liked: Its fast performance and portable design
We didn’t like: The screen and speakers
We tested a previous version of the HP 14-ce, and it performed reasonably in our tests. This latest model is essentially identical except that it has been upgraded with Intel’s latest 10th-generation processors and has a larger solid-state drive (SSD). While we haven’t tested it, improve specs point to faster performance, although whether the firm has also built on the things we weren’t so keen on is unclear.
Apple Macbook Air 2019 – was £1,099, now £985 (10% off)
We like: Beautifully designed, surprisingly impressive speakers
We didn’t like: Lack of ports makes adding devices an annoyance
Though the 2019 edition Air wasn’t a significant upgrade from 2018, it does benefit from an upgraded display and a cheaper price. Subtle touches betray Apple’s eye for quality – such as the surprisingly powerful speakers, which are among the best we’ve heard on any laptop.
Our full review reveals our verdict on other aspects, like the battery life and that shiny new display.
MacBook Pro 13 Core i5 128GB – was £1299 at Apple, now £1146 (12% off)
We like: Lightning fast performance, and a stunning design
We didn’t like: Lack of ports, plus very expensive to upgrade
As the cheapest Touch Bar Macbook Pro you can buy, it’s no surprise this has proven a popular laptop for Apple users. With silky smooth operation and a gorgeous design, it won’t take long to capture your heart once you’ve seen it in the flesh. Pop into Currys just to be on the safe side, where you can pick it up for over 10% off in the Black Friday sales.

Currys PC World Black Friday washing machine deals
Samsung QuickDrive WW90M645OPW – was £729, now £599 (17% off)
We liked: good cottons wash, easy to use
We didn’t like: uses a lot of water
A reasonable chunk of money has been knocked off the typical price for this Samsung washing machine. It’s still by no means cheap, but if it can clean your clothes fantastically then it’s a tempting offer. It also comes with AddWash – a handy hatch that you can chuck stray socks into once you’ve started the wash cycle.

Currys PC World Black Friday stand mixer deals
KitchenAid Artisan 5KSM125BAC – was £499, now £279 (44% off)
We liked: great at kneading, very quiet
We didn’t like: can cause a bit of a mess when adding flour
This is the updated version of KitchenAid’s iconic – and very similar-looking – KSM150 stand mixer. Known for being one of the priciest kitchen accessories around, you can pay anywhere up to £500 for one of these, so this is a good deal.
Can it beat, whip and whisk brilliantly, though?
Currys PC World Black Friday tablet deals
Apple 10.2 iPad (2019) – was £349, now £299 (14% off)
We liked: Fantastic screen and great speakers
We didn’t like: Battery life isn’t quite as good as some others in the range
This is the latest iPad from Apple and is a good big screen choice. It’s fast and smooth to use but we found it heavy and were disappointed with the battery life.
Currys PC World Black Friday vacuum cleaner deals
Dyson V8 Absolute – now £299
We liked: easy to use
We didn’t like: short battery life on the most powerful setting.
This is about as cheap as it gets for this model, though it is often on sale for around £330-£350. Opt for the Absolute or Absolute Pro at Currys if you want the ‘fluffy’ soft roller floorhead (designed for hard floors).

Currys PC World Black Friday fridge freezer deals
Samsung Family Hub RS68N8941SL/EU – was £2,699, now £1,799 (33% off)
We liked: chills and freezes rapidly, very efficient
We didn’t like: storage features could be more user-friendly
Currys has dropped the price of this popular – and rather expensive – fridge freezer from Samsung by quite a bit for Black Friday. So if you’ve had your eye on it but couldn’t quite stretch your budget it might be the time to grab it.
But before you do, check our review to see how it fared in our lab tests.

Currys PC World Black Friday oven deals
Samsung Dual Cook NV66M3531BS electric oven – was £410, now £349 (14% off)
We liked: very quick to preheat
We didn’t like: the lower half of the oven can be dark when cooking with the divider
This Samsung oven offers the best of both worlds – it’s a single oven hat can be divided into two cooking zones when required. That way you can cook two dishes at different temperatures and there’s no flavour transfer.
This is a fair deal, but only if the oven does it job well. Check our review to find out more.

Bosch SMS25E100G/01 dishwasher – was £399, now £349 (12% off)
We liked: super energy and water efficient
We didn’t like: noisy, not many programs to choose from
Bosch’s freestanding, A++ energy rated dishwasher has just been added to Currys Black Friday tag event. Dropping from £399 to £349, it’s a notable discount.
