When is Black Friday 2021?
The annual shopping bonanza Black Friday falls on 26 November this year, with the digital Cyber Monday following on 29 November.
Imported from the US, these feasts of consumerism have become some of Britain’s biggest shopping days, with retailers luring gift-givers and savvy savers to stores and websites with slashed prices, special offers, and incentives.
Broadband providers have got in on the festivities, making Black Friday and its cyber twin the best days of the year to switch internet providers. Sign up for a broadband contract during the sales and you’ll lock in lower bills for the next year and maybe net some bonuses like cashback, gift cards and freebies.
Will NOW offer any Black Friday deals this year?
Streaming giant NOW hasn’t unveiled its 2021 Black Friday deals yet. But it’s a reliable participant in the fun, often offering steeper discounts than parent company Sky.
Last year, NOW Broadband’s Black Friday smorgasbord included its “lowest ever price” on its faster 63Mbps fibre optic connections—£24 per month, discounted from £28.
Previous steals included a nine-month Sky Sports subscription for £120 off and two months of the Entertainment streaming pass for the price of one.
If this year plays out as expected, look out for discounts of up to 60% TV packages.
Does NOW offer any extras or free gifts?
Some broadband providers sweeten the deal by offering gift cards, freebies other incentives to new joiners on Black Friday. NOW isn’t usually among them, but its prices on faster fibre broadband plans are a reward in and of themselves.
Does NOW charge any set-up costs?
NOW doesn’t charge an activation fee but you do have to pay £5 to have a router delivered. Even customers who sign up during a Black Friday promotion usually must pay that fee.
