Black Friday is just days away and most of the major players including Amazon, Game, Currys and more have got loads of mega deals already circulating.
At midnight on Friday 16 November, Amazon kicked off its annual Black Friday festivities.
Deals run until Sunday, November 25 before it then turns into Cyber Monday madness, with new products becoming available as often as every five minutes.
Almost every other website and retailer will be running deals on and before the day, so here’s what you need to know.
When is Black Friday 2018?
This year Black Friday is Friday 23 November.
Why do we have Black Friday?
Because we love shopping. There also isn’t a definitive answer for why it is called Black Friday. Many think that it’s because businesses see huge profit on the day hence the ‘into the black’ term as opposed to losses which would be coloured in red.
Or maybe it’s because it’s also hell on earth for people who work in retail and anyone who has a strong distaste to shopping.
Which stores have the best deals?
Amazon are the kings when it comes to Black Friday but now anywhere and everywhere gets involved because it would be mad not to. Argos, Currys, Very, GAME, Ryanair and more all get involved.
How to find the best deals
Amazon has already launched its early Black Friday deals page and you can sign up to the sites newsletter to be notified about deals which nave now begun.
The selection of deals on offer will include electronics, toys, pet supplies, clothing, jewellery and more.
Although Amazon’s discounts are amazing there is limited availability on products so if you already have an item in mind that you want to buy you’ll have to act quickly on the day.
The online retailers will also do flash sales know as Lightning Deals – these are time-limited offers on items and they will appear on the site unannounced throughout the day.
