Amazon, Argos, Currys, Tesco and John Lewis have already started to offer money-saving deals.
Many deals will appear online as soon as the clock strikes midnight, while the majority of UK’s high street retailers will open at 6am.
The shopping bonanza will last all weekend, and is followed by Black Friday’s online equivalent Cyber Monday on November 27th.
Home Mini is now cheaper than Echo Dot
The Google Home and Home Mini discount comes as Amazon dropped the price of its own award-winning Amazon Echo and Echo Dot speakers.
Amazon released this refreshed gadget last month with it featuring a new compact design, interchangeable covers and a lower £89 price tag.
The all-new Echo is currently on-sale for £69.99, while the Echo Dot has been reduced to £34.99.
Express.co.uk has been very impressed with both smart speakers, but for our money, the Google Home boasts a slightly better AI assistant.
