Black Friday vinyl deals: When is Black Friday?

This year’s Black Friday will land on November 26, while the Cyber Monday deals will follow hot on its heels on November 29. It’s going to be four full days of dedicated sales, although we expect some deals to start coming in well before the big day. So alongside all the Black Friday vinyl deals, you'll also be able to grab new vinyl releases, some of the best Bluetooth turntables and best portable turntables around and vinyl storage solutions.

Not only can you pick up a treat for yourself, but Black Friday is an ideal time to buy a few early Christmas presents. 

Black Friday vinyl deals: What to expect

With Black Friday 2021 arriving on November 26, vinyl collectors will be in musical heaven if last year is anything to go by. November last year saw massive savings right across the board on everything from vinyl box set, picture discs, gatefold albums to live records and more, so we fully expect to see similar Black Friday vinyl deals across the whole weekend and into Cyber Monday.

We're hoping to see discounts on Metallica's recently released Black album 30th anniversary reissue, Rush's Hemisphere's anniversary set and perhaps even something off the new Tattoo You releases from the Stones. No matter what, there's guaranteed to be some great Black Friday vinyl deals kicking around – and we'll have everything right here so you don't miss out.

How to spot killer Black Friday vinyl deals

With so much going on when it comes to Black Friday vinyl record deals, what should you be looking for? We'd first suggest scouting out the RRP of the vinyl package you're looking for. That way, you'll be able to see at a glance how much of a deal you're actually getting. Some Black Friday vinyl releases will be reduced by a small amount, while many others will have their list price slashed dramatically.

We'll do our bit by highlighting the best online Black Friday vinyl deals to help steer you in the right direction.

Black Friday vinyl deals: Where to find them

So your looking for a some shiny new vinyl this Black Friday, but aside from keeping your eyes pinned to Louder, there are a variety of online retailers who will be offering discounts on everything from deluxe box sets to single LPs. We recommend Amazon, Townsend Music, Rough Trade, EMP and Base.com if you’re in the UK for Black Friday vinyl deals. And if you’re based in the US, then Walmart and Best Buy regularly carry records and are well worth keeping an eye on.

Black Friday vinyl deals: How to prepare

There's going to be loads of Black Friday vinyl deals coming in November, so it’s best to be prepared before you dive into the sales. Make a list of the vinyl you're looking for and keep checking back here to see if your must-have vinyl has gone on sale. We'll be highlighting our favourite picks over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales weekend, so you might also see something that appeals that was previously off your radar.

And if you’re on the hunt for something that’s not vinyl related, it’s worth checking out our guides to the Loudest bluetooth speakers, the best budget wireless headphones, the best phones for music and best budget noise cancelling headphones if you're looking  at nabbing a bargain across Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Black Friday vinyl deals: Will there be stock issues?

The headlines recently have suggested that some products could well be harder to get hold of this year due to stock shortages and the ongoing issue regarding a general lack of HGV drivers.

While it’s worth keeping in mind that some items could be held up in as a result of these situations, we would still advise jumping on a great deal if you see it – after all, a certain price drop may not be repeated and some online retailers may also be limited in stock.

We’d also recommend grabbing a bargain earlier rather than later if you spot one to avoid any disappointment before Christmas. Here at Louder, we're keeping our eye on things – and if previous Black Friday music deals are anything to go by, we expect to see some early offers land before the big sales weekend.
