The Best of Black Friday


The biggest shopping day of the year is almost upon us, but what exactly is Black Friday? Black Friday is the day retailers drop their prices for 24 hours in an attempt to get people spending before Christmas.  Originally an American tradition, as it’s the day after Thanksgiving, UK retailers have now embraced it with British consumers expected to splash out a record-breaking £4 billion over the “Black Friday” weekend.

Whilst bargains are found to be everywhere, technology is always a big seller on Black Friday, with hundreds of retailers slashing prices of TVs, phones, laptops, games consoles and appliances, making it an ideal day to search out the best deals for Christmas gifts.

With the high street looking to be extremely busy on the day, some retailers have started their sales early, (Amazon slashed prices a whopping 12 days early) so we’ve put together a few of the best online deals for you.

Be patient when searching out deals on the day, as websites have been known to crash under the demand for a bargain.
