What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is an annual event that has grown in popularity in recent years. It started in America, but was properly launched here in the UK in 2010 by Amazon.

For many, it marks the beginning of their Christmas shopping as it always takes place around a month before December 25 and provides the chance for people to get the best possible prices on some of the most sought after items including technology, toys, beauty and clothing.

When is Black Friday?

It usually takes place on the last Friday of November, which means this year it will take place on Friday November 26.

To make the most out of the event, many shops open to customers as early as 6am and deals start to be made available online from midnight onwards. Shoppers have often been none to queue outside stores to get the best deals - and the most popular ones can sell out within minutes.

As Black Friday has grown in popularity, however, so has the length of the sale for many retailers. The deals are now not only available on the day itself, but often last for the whole weekend, and sometimes for the following week or even fortnight too.

Some retailers like to grab shoppers’ attention early in the month with some striking deals in advance of Black Friday, while others keep their big discounts back until the day.

Black Friday is quickly followed by Cyber Monday, which is a day dedicated to online discounts and this year takes place on Monday November 29, so they’ll be another chance at finding some pre-Christmas bargains on this day too.

So, in just a few weeks time you’ll be able to snap up lots of bargains on top brands and high ticket items from lots of different retailers, and some are even available now.
