What is Black Friday?

Black Friday, for those who have somehow managed to avoid the carnage of previous years, is a massive shopping event that used to be a single day but has since grown to take up an entire weekend.

It began as an American tradition and takes place the day after Thanksgiving, which always falls on the fourth Thursday of November.

Having eclipsed all other annual shopping days back in the mid-noughties, Black Friday has since grown to take up the entire weekend, spilling over into the following week, 或者, Cyber Monday.

What’s the history of Black Friday?

The origin of the name is open for debate, but a strong contender is its use by Philadelphia police back in 1961, who used Black Friday to refer to the heavy traffic caused by people heading home after visiting family for Thanksgiving.

Fast-forward to the mid-2000s and retailers began using the name to describe the opening day of the holiday shopping season. Very much an offline sales event at this time, Black Friday would see shops open at midnight as thousands of deal-hungry shoppers would flood in, grab as many cut-price televisions as they could occasionally fall over to the delight of news agency photographers – and return home triumphant.

自从 亚马逊 brought Black Friday to the UK in 2010, the shopping event has felt as traditional as turkey, mince pies and dads panic-buying presents on Christmas Eve.

When is Black Friday 2021?

今年, Black Friday begins on 26 November and will continue across the weekend. 然后, after a quick costume change, Cyber Monday will take place on 29 十一月.

然而, 亚马逊 kicked things off early in 2020, with the first deals landing a whole month ahead of schedule. We fully expect the retail giant to do the same again this year, so brace yourself for an early departure.

What is Cyber Monday?

In days of yore, Cyber Monday was the online-only equivalent to Black Friday. Now though, with online shopping bigger than ever, Cyber Monday is just another part of the Black Friday weekend (or week, in many cases).

Some physical retailers like to hold back certain deals until Cyber Monday, making them online-only. But for the most part, the two days have merged into a four-day shopping bonanza.

去年, Cyber Monday was the largest online shopping day in US retail history, with $10.7bn (£7.7bn) of sales in a single day.

It can be easy to get carried away on Black Friday, lured into pulling the trigger and buying stuff you don’t actually want or need. Remember, just because something has had its price reduced and the retailer wants you to buy it, you don’t have to.

We should also remind readers that less trustworthy retailers are known to increase the price of a product before Black Friday, only to claim it has been heavily reduced for the big day itself. Check the RRP of whatever you are interested in buying, then check the price elsewhere before reaching for your credit card.

More obvious advice, but make sure you are logged into the websites you plan to buy from, as remembering your password or creating a new account can waste valuable time when often Black Friday deals are time or quantity-limited. Systems like Apple Pay can also help speed things up.

If you plan to make a very large purchase on Black Friday, it could be worth checking with your bank or credit card provider to find out what your spending limit is per purchase. 除此以外, a large and unexpected purchase might be temporarily blocked by the card provider until you can prove you intended to make the purchase. 再次, it’s all about making sure the transaction is processed quickly and smoothly.
