Black Friday

 

What Is Black Friday?

Black Friday is now a day that most consumers have written in their diaries as it's a time when stores of all shapes, sizes and varieties offer discounts on a huge range of goods. 

Originally, it was an American event that took place the day after Thanksgiving but now, it's definitely a day the UK embrace. In fact, it's now not even a day with many retailers running week-long discounts that take consumers right through the sale weekend into what's known as Cyber Monday. 

 

When Is Black Friday?

Black Friday 2021 takes place in November and this year, it falls on Friday 26 November 2021. However, some retailers, both online and on the high street, do start sales earlier so do keep an eye out for posters, emails and online ads which have Black Friday Deal details on them. 

 

What Time Does Black Friday Start?

The time offers become available will change from store-to-store but generally, it's midnight online and high street retailers often open earlier (around 6 am). Different deals may also go live at different times. For example, as well as 'deals of the day', Amazon offers 'Lightning deals' which are discounted products available in limited quantities, for a short period of time. 'Lightning deals' are introduced throughout the sale, with new deals becoming available as often as every five minutes.

 

Online Shopping

 

Where Can I Get The Best Black Friday Deals?

All major stores and even some independent retailers offer Black Friday deals so it's more of a case of knowing what you're looking for and shopping in the right place. 

For ease, most people actually do their Black Friday shopping online and if you're going to be one of the millions of customers who do this, don't forget most stores also have apps you can use that make it easier and quicker to shop. 

 

How Can I Ensure I Get The Best Black Friday Discounts?

To get the best Black Friday 2021 discounts, you often need to shop early as stock flies off shelves quickly and do your research beforehand so you know if you are really getting a bargain or not. This could mean checking the average price of things that you want before the discounts are applied as well as comparing discounts from store-to-store. You also need to factor in P&P when shopping online as this will add more money to your total. 

If you don't already have accounts with stores online, create them before Black Friday arrives so the order process is quicker and if you have voucher codes, put them all in one place so you can quickly refer to them (if applicable). You can also sign up for email alerts so you don't miss any deal announcements.

What Is Cyber Monday? 

Once the dust has settled on Black Friday, Cyber Monday 2021 arrives for tech fans and this year, it's Monday 29 November 2021 - just after payday for many. Basically, it's another day you can take advantage of big discounts before Christmas arrives. 

 

When Will My Black Friday Goods Arrive?

Due to the volume of orders stores receive, they may be a slight delay on when your new purchases will arrive but a lot of stores do work hard to ensure delivery deadlines are met.

nobody should be happy about black friday: because it was invented by retailers to get rid of stuff which not even by a reduction in the price at summer end sales could be sold. junk items which now block the shelves and stores which prepare for new christmas ware Smile

given the impending ecological desaster in great part caused by absolutely crazy shopping sprees of a consumer society, we all should resist the temptation to buy the 10th...11th cam we won't need...

PRO-tip: after black friday black-friday-stuff will be even cheaper. wait a week, if you really are in such dire straits for a cheap christmas gift.
