Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the best shopping day of the year. Credit cards at the ready…
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday started over in the US and sees shops slashing their prices so people can snap up some deals ahead of Christmas.
Major retailers like Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, Debenhams, House of Fraser and John Lewis offer some of the biggest deals on products, but e-tailers and smaller shops alike are catching onto the trend, too.
Expect to see home appliances, clothes and makeup with HUGE discounts both in-store and online.
Shops usually announce their Black Friday deals the day before or on the day so it’s best to keep an eye online.
When is Black Friday 2018?
This year, Black Friday will take place on November 23 but some deals have already started to drop.
