What Is Black Friday?

Black Friday is that special time of the year when retailers offer incredible discounts across fashion, beauty, homeware, technology, travel and more.

The annual shopping event originated in the US, having been introduced to the UK in the early 2000’s when American companies, Amazon and Asda, began targeting their overseas shoppers.

Yup, you won’t want to miss out.

When Is Black Friday 2017?

This year Black Friday will fall on the 24th November – so mark that date in your diary.

Traditionally, the shopping event takes place on the day that follows Thanksgiving in the United States.

Why is it called Black Friday?

It’s most commonly thought that, back in the ’80s, businesses would use red ink for recording financial losses and black ink for financial profits. So, basically, it literally means a big profit day for retailers.

But, with so many amazing deals and discounts to take advantage of, we’re not complaining.

What time does Black Friday start?

It normally all kicks off at midnight. This means that a lot of online retailers will start slashing prices and unveiling deals from 12am on the 24th November 2017.

So, you know, you might want to set your alarm…

How do I find the best deals?

It’s probably easier to get an idea of what you’re looking for ahead of the event, bookmarking the pages that are of interest.
