And if you’re struggling to decide between two different laptop models or TVs that seem similar, the retailer has launched an online service called ShopLive, a 24/7 video shopping resource allowing customers to chat to staff on the website and get advice.

The best Currys PC World Black Friday deals
Fitbit Versa 2 with Amazon Alexa – Petal & Copper Rose: Was £199, now £129
Our technology critic, David Phelan, rated this model highly in his IndyBest review of the best smartwatches of 2020, for its versatility and accuracy when tracking activity.
“Its operating software is straightforward and easy to use and there are lots of advanced fitness features, such as sophisticated sleep tracking which helps you understand how you’re sleeping thanks to a nightly sleep rating. It can do this because the battery life is enough to last up to five days so there’s time to recharge it.” He particularly recommends it for Android users, adding: “This Versa has Alexa built-in: press and hold the side button to ask it questions, set a timer or start a workout. This is a very effective tracker, especially for monitoring.”

Nintendo Switch Lite, Animal Crossing and Minecraft bundle: Was £263.98, now £239

The Independent’s technology editor and avid gamer, Andrew Griffin, explains what makes the Switch such a great choice, whether you’re looking to update your gaming kit or shop for a loved one’s Christmas present.
“To get this out the way: the Switch is an entirely different proposition, but one that’s not worth ruling out,” he says. “The games are incredible, the console is packed with fun, and Nintendo have pulled out a stroke of genius all around. It has its downsides – the graphics and performance are nowhere near as futuristic and powerful as the other bigger consoles – but that’s what you get for it all fitting in a box you can throw in your bag and play on the move.”
