The sale of the year is just weeks away, with Amazon’s Black Friday sale running for an entire eight days in 2019.
Taking place from November 22 to 29, it’s the ideal time to pick up a new suitcase, luggage scale, packing cubes and other essentials for your next trip – or even to gift a globe-trotting loved one this Christmas.
Ahead of new Black Friday suitcase deals and travel accessory offers being released each day during the sale, we thought we’d look back at the must-have travel products featured in previous years and select some of the things we hope to see in Amazon’s 2019 event.
What is Black Friday?
An annual sale that was born in America, Black Friday made its way across the Atlantic a few years ago bringing Brits big discounts on everything, from electronics to toys and beauty to clothing. Hundreds of retailers take part in the event and this year we expect it to grow.
Amazon is one of the biggest retailers that shoppers flock to for Black Friday, with Kindles, travel irons, digital cameras and all sorts of holiday essentials you can find for less.
From four-wheel Samsonite cases to a clever travel pillow that jet-setters love, here’s what we’re looking out for in Amazon’s Black Friday suitcase and travel accessories sale.
Trtl Travel Pillow (current price £24.95) – this best-selling travel pillow is loved by holidaymakers all around for its unique design and scientifically proven neck support. It featured in previous Amazon sales and we expect it to pop up again this Black Friday.
Samsonite suitcases (various prices) – a much-loved luggage brand that Amazon sometimes adds to its sales. It often sells these cheaper than other websites so even if the one you want doesn’t go into the Black Friday, you may still find it cheaper than from other retailers. We like this one.
Kindle Paperwhite (current price £119.99) – we can’t imagine Amazon leaving one of its own devices out of the sale and this one is top of our wish list. It makes the perfect Christmas gift too.
Anker PowerCore Lite Power Bank (current price £24.99) – this appeared in the Prime Day sale over the summer and is something no tech lover wants to be without.
AmazonBasics luggage (various prices) – from underseat suitcases to affordable wheeled hand luggage, we expect to see a few of Amazon’s own-brand cases.
Sony DSC-HX350 Digital Compact Bridge Camera (currently price £279) – we’re hoping Amazon adds this highly-rated travel camera to its Black Friday sale.
Dodocool Clothes Steamer (current price £23.99) – a big hit with Good Housekeeping readers during the Prime Day sale, this steamer is one to pack for every trip.
