Three Black Friday 2020 sale: What to look out for
MOBILE phone shoppers should find plenty of deals available when November arrives, in a big year for discounts.
Networks have been particularly active during 2020, and Three’s Black Friday sale will be one to keep tabs on – which we’ll do right here.
Just because a phone is in the Black Friday sale, doesn’t mean you can’t find it, or something similar, cheaper elsewhere. Always shop around before you spend your money.
When is Black Friday 2020?
This year Black Friday falls on Friday November 27.
It is aways the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving, which falls on the fourth Thursday of November,
Black Friday isn’t the only day for discounts though, as brands and stores usually kick off sales early.
We don’t yet know when Three’s Black Friday offers will start, but last year the network released deals a few days ahead of Black Friday itself.

What to expect from Three’s Black Friday 2020 sale
Three has had an active year of deals so far, as have other networks in responding to changing user needs during the global coronavirus pandemic.
Big SIM-deals continue to prove popular, and we’d expect to see big data 4G and biog value 5G SIMs in Three’s Black Friday sale.
There’s little doubt we’ll also see pay monthly contract deals focused around the iPhone 11 and iPhone SE – with the upcoming launch of the iPhone 12 – as well as Samsung and premium Android phones.
Home and mobile broadband is another area where Three may offer up some deals, but the network is yet to provide any details on its offers.

Whether you were in the market for home broadband, a new mobile device from Apple, Samsung or Huawei or just needed a new SIM, Three had it covered in 2019.
