Here are our finder.com.au predictions for which stores will go big this Black Friday. Start your shopping lists now.

Black Friday shopping isn't always easy. Things sell out so quickly on the day that it's important to go in with a targeted list to avoid disappointment. But when you're not sure which retailers are participating in the sales, how can you start planning your shopping list?

Well, we're here to help. There are a few key retailers that we're expecting to go BIG with their Black Friday sales this year, and we wanted to clue you in so you can start planning. Here are our top five predictions for stores that will have a huge sale this year.

And if you want to see more, check out our full list of Black Friday predictions or just head straight to the Black Friday deals page to see every Black Friday deal live.

1. Cotton On

Last year's deal: 40% off site-wide.

Last year, the Cotton On sale included all the brands in the Cotton On portfolio, such as Typo and Rubi Shoes. We've got our money on Cotton On having a similar deal this year since Black Friday is getting bigger in Australia. We're predicting we'll see at least 30% off site-wide, if not the full 40% again.

2. New Balance

Last year's deal: 50% off everything and free shipping

We have a pretty good feeling that New Balance will do this one again in 2017. New Balance is one of those brands that generally doesn't discount too often but goes all out for sale periods, so we think this year's Black Friday will be big like last year.

3. Myer

Last year's deal: The Super Cyber Sale - 30% off clothing, 50% off sheets, 30% off lingerie, 45% off Dyson vacuums plus more.

So Myer's Black Friday weekend sale (which extended into Cyber Monday) was kind of a big deal last year. It was hard to find something the store hadn't put on sale. We're predicting the store could go even bigger this year. It's no secret that Myer isn't doing too well financially and a huge Black Friday could be just the thing to trigger a sales uplift. At finder.com.au, we're confident the store will go big this year too.

4. Sunday Somewhere

Last year's deal: 50% off selected styles

Getting 50% off is a pretty epic deal when it comes to designer sunglasses. Historically, Sunday Somewhere has always joined in during big sale periods, so we have a gut feeling that they'll jump on the Black Friday bandwagon again.

5. Sephora

Last year's deal: 20% off site-wide

Okay, 20% off isn't that big, but it's kind of a big deal for Sephora because this store basically never has sales. This sale was so popular last year that it crashed the site. I was up at midnight when the sale started and the site went down completely. We're quietly confident that Sephora will do this exact sale again this year. Advice to anyone wanting to shop this one, be awake when the sale starts because when you wake up, all the things you wanted will be sold out.
