What actually is Black Friday?
Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The phrase Black Friday was first used in the Fifties to refer to people calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving. The day was used by people who wanted to head to the shops to get buying ready for Christmas.
Black Friday also refers to the general chaos that is created on the day, which if you’ve ever watched those viral videos of people fighting over TVs is probably fair enough.
While the event has happened in the US for decades, the UK has only fairly recently embraced the tradition. Though, the manic scenes in shopping centres seem to have been replaced by furiously clicking away at home.
Is Black Friday just one day?
Officially yes, but the buying spree continues way beyond it. While many shops have early Black Friday events, the day officially starts at midnight on November 27 (aka late Thursday night) and lasts for just one day. For example, Amazon already has early Black Friday deals happening, culminating on Black Friday itself (27 November). You then have Cyber Monday - where there are exclusive deals online - so some discounts may continue throughout the weekend.
When is Black Friday?
This year, Black Friday is 27 November (although there are many deals before this - some are already live) - then Cyber Monday always follows on the first Monday after Thanksgiving, so this year it will be on 30 November.
Where to find the best Black Friday deals?
Let’s be honest, there will be deals everywhere. You probably won’t be able to click on site with being often some sort of discount. At Shortlist we will be on hand to curate the deals for you - making sure that you only see the deals that are truly bargains. So it is definitely worth bookmarking this page and keeping an eye on the above gift guides..
Let’s start with the obvious; Amazon. As one of the largest retailers in the world, Amazon takes events like Black Friday very seriously (you only have to look at Amazon Prime Day to see that). Often some of the best deals are on their own products, so keep an eye on their Echo Dots, Fire TV sticks and Kindles. We now know that its early Black Friday sale is happening - so get ready for a whole month of discounts.
It might even be worth signing up to Amazon Prime to get the most out of the day, as having a Prime membership will almost certainly get you extra savings. It’ll cost you £79 a year, or £40 a year if you’re a student. However, there’s an initial 30-day free Amazon trial if you just want to try it out (sounds like a win-win to us).
Currys PC World also had some major discounts on TVs last year so, if yours needs a bit of an update, maybe wait until Black Friday and buy yourself an early Christmas treat. There’s also likely to be some great deals on laptops, phones and cameras.
If you’re actually intending to venture out on Black Friday John Lewis and Next are the shops to make a bee-line for. John Lewis often drops the prices of a range of tech gadgets. It is also likely to be another retailer with some decent deals on TVs, too.
If you need new workwear, Next is the place to be on November 27. It is one of the only UK shops that still has people queuing outside from as early as 6am.
Not only is it great for workwear (for men and women) but it has some brilliant homeware, too. The retailer also now stocks brands such as Adidas, Lipsy and Ivy Park, so you can get more in one place.
How do I know if I have a good Black Friday deal?
That’s where Shortlist comes in. We’ve been busy compiling buying guides so you can check to see if the goods you are buying are worth it.
