Here are the links to the on-line stores:
Amazon – The online giant’s 10 day Black Friday sale begins at midnight from 16 November and runs until 25 November. The online retailer makes a big deal of Black Friday, promising to launch “Lightening Deals” of discounted products available for short periods of time. This year, we expect that Amazon’s sale will include major discounts on everything from electronics to this year’s must-have toys, games, fashion, jewellery and beauty products.
Ebay – eBay’s Black Friday has even more amazing Deals in 2018. Get Huge Discounts on Electronics (TVs, Laptops & Consoles), Smart Home and Designer Fashion.

Optional additional steps
To truly shop like the local here, we recommend using VPN (Virtual Private Network), it’s free and easy to use. Basically, you can connect to a UK server through VPN and you will be treated extra special like the locals when shopping. With VPN, when you click on any UK stores it will always take you to the local website instead of international version. Some merchants by default reject orders from outside United Kingdom, hence by pretending you’re in the UK, then you are good to shop till your drop.
