Congratulations, you've found your way to the gateway to great deals – this is the ultimate guide to the best Black Friday 2018 deals from Argos. That means whatever your tech tastebuds are hankering for, you should be able to find a fantastic fix with some money knocked off.
Of course, Argos being Argos, you're not limited to tech. There's everything from children's toys to furniture, all at bargain prices. So no matter what you're buying for there should be a deal that can help.
Argos goes beyond the offering of a lot of other retailers these days and actually has physical shops. That means you have the option to pop in and collect your item as early as the same day. With some Argos shops now tied in with supermarkets, this is easier than ever. Of course same day delivery is also an option in some cases too.
The Black Friday deals for 2018 are set to be huge, with deals traditionally appearing ahead of the main event on Friday 23 November. So how do you find the best Black Friday deals without having to wade through all the chaff? With a deals page like this, of course. We'll be updating you with all the best Argos Black Friday deals as they come in so you can get the best price on the perfect kit.
How to get the best deals at Argos on Black Friday 2018
The first thing you can do right now, if you've not already done so, is to get over to Argos' website and sign-up for an account. That way you can get access to all the deals immediately as they become available.
You can also sign-up to the Argos mailing list if you want to get alerts sent to your email account as new deals crop up.
Another way to prepare ahead of time is to go for a little virtual shop. If you create a wish list then any items in that crop which get a Black Friday discount will be ready for you to buy. It's also an easy way to check into your account to have a glance to see if discounts have appeared on what you want.
If spending isn't as simply as shelling out, then an Argos Card might help, which lets you spread the cost from three to twelve months.
If you've got a Nectar Card already then have this handy for orders so you can cash in on points too. If not then head over to the Nectar website to sign-up.
Once all the Argos deals go live at midnight, you can expect the site to be very busy. Last year saw 78.5 million visits to the site on Black Friday. If you don't want to risk the site slowing down, then the best time to get shopping is between 3 and 4am. Yup, if you're really committed and don't need sleep then getting up at this time could prove helpful.
If you prefer the physical shop then fret not, there's a whopping 10,000 extra staff helping out this year so you should be served quickly.
What about Cyber Monday 2018 Argos deals?
Cyber Monday, the overflow from Black Friday, is fast becoming a more important mega deals occasion in itself year after year. This year that falls on Monday 26 November so expect more deals to crop up then.
Many of the deals will be repeats from Black Friday, so don't worry too much if you miss something first time. In some cases it's worth holding off for this day as discounts can be even greater. But then you risk sell outs, so it's your gamble to take.

Argos Black Friday deals predictions for 2018
Each year there is a general trend of what goes on sale during Black Friday. That allows us to work out and predict future sales so you know what to plan for ahead of time. It might even give you some early Christmas gift ideas.
Last year Argos launched its Christmas hub which showed off tending gift ideas. This is another nice way to discover presents that you can grab at a bargain price if they crop up on Black Friday deals.
Here are some of the deals you can expect from Argos on Black Friday 2018.
1. Smart speakers
The world of artificially intelligent speakers, which you can control with your voice, is growing. As a result there are now more options with lower prices than ever. If you're not part of the smart speaker revolution yet, now could be the time to join.
2. 4K TVs
This year the number of 4K UHD TVs sold has been huge. Sure 8K launched but it's still too expensive and early for even early adopters. That push forward in tech is helping lower 4K TV prices so expect them to be lower than ever for Black Friday deals with the likes of Samsung, Sony, LG, Hisense and Philips all expected to feature.
3. Acer laptops
If you're a fan of Windows machines and want to get a new laptop then Acer is a great option as it builds powerful machines at low prices. That means this year should see Windows 10 laptops for less on Black Friday if Argos follows on with the Acer deals as it did last year.
4. Wireless headphones
Thanks to the likes of aptX Bluetooth connectivity and battery life enhancements, wireless headphones are better quality and more appealing than ever. They're also cheaper than ever and drop even more in deals which will more than likely happen this Black Friday.
5. Console bundles
Expect the Sony PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch all to get some great bundle offerings this year on Black Friday.

Reasons to choose or avoid Argos
For a physical purchase Argos is a winner as it offers Fast Track which allows you get to get your purchase, skipping the queue, in a shop. It also offers delivery if that's more convenient.
What could be a downside is the popularity of these deals which may be enough to crash the Argos site. That in mind, it is a good idea to get on there at night when it will, potentially, be quieter.
Another positive is the ability to buy on credit, if you need to, so costs can be spread out a bit. Of course this is also bad as you'll need to pay APR.
