Black Friday is November 26 this year – the day after the American holiday of Thanksgiving, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. But Black Friday sales are rarely kept to one day, and some brands and retailers start to drop prices a fortnight in advance. GoPro's own Black Friday deals usually mean a big saving on the company's Hero8 Black bundle, and they're likely to have more great bundle deals on the Hero8 and Hero9 cameras this year. That's not to say other retailers won't offer the brand's devices at a discount though, and it will certainly be worth comparing prices.
Is GoPro taking part in Black Friday this year?
GoPro usually does Black Friday deals, and they tend to start slightly before the end of November. They don't disappoint: last year, you could get your hands on a GoPro Hero7 (which is no longer sold through the GoPro website) for its cheapest price ever, as well as a GoPro Hero8 for under £280, and a Hero9 for under £330. Other stockists will also have sales on GoPro cameras so it's worth shopping around for the best deals.
