Does IKEA have a Black Friday sale in the UK?

Ikea stores in the UK  and online don't officially take part in Black Friday or run a 'Black Friday sale', however, as you can see from offer the bargains above, there are still plenty of savings to be had in IKEA during this major shopping weekend. If you've heard otherwise, that might be because IKEA in the US, where the origin of Black Friday comes from, does offer some amazing Black Friday-specific discounts on everything from kitchens to beds, sofas, tables and chairs. But we have some good news in all this, the retailer offers some reductions prior to November anyway, and started to do so from August in 2020 with their summer sale.

So don't feel too down, as there's still plenty of money to be saved on your next IKEA haul. Whether it's a shop for university or a renovation of the garage for the holidays, IKEA has you covered even though they don't offer any Black Friday offers.

Plus, there are plenty of other stores taking part in Black Friday this year. We’ve already heard about the amazing deals set to feature in the Tesco Black Friday sale and ASDA Black Friday deals and how major sports equipment, like bikes and turbo trainers, will be reduced in the Wiggle Black Friday (opens in new tab) sale. 

Does IKEA do Cyber Monday sales in the UK?

As the retailer doesn't offer any particular deals for Black Friday either in-store or online, we're pretty convinced that they'll be staying away from Cyber Monday too. So there's no point in getting into the Black Friday vs Cyber Monday debate where IKEA is concerned, as they won't be opting in to offer any deals on either of the days.

But don't worry! As we've said, IKEA offer some amazing deals all year round and in the lead up to the winter months, we've already seen the furniture store make reductions on everything from garden decorations to beds and wardrobes, so there's no doubt you'll be able to score some bargains online or in-store during your next IKEA shopping trip.
