When is Black Friday?
Black Friday itself will take place on 25 November, but we could see deals announced before then — and so we’re readying this as the best place for cyclists to come in search of a good deal.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday started as an American shopping event that brings big savings to recommended retail prices for a limited time, but it's well and truly made its way to the UK as well.
While it started off as a way to drive more shoppers into stores, many major retailers have started to offer big savings online too. And it’s working. An incredible £1.1bn was spent on Black Friday last year in the UK alone, up from £810m the previous year.
It’s not to be confused with Cyber Monday, though, which will take place on 28 November, and is definitely aimed at online shoppers only.
When do Black Friday deals go live?
In the US, retailers open their doors early (some at 5am) to capitalise on the enormous interest, but we haven’t seen that in the UK yet. Some offers — and particularly online offers — do go live in the days before Black Friday, and many will go live at midnight on the 24th.
