What are Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Originally a US-only event, Black Friday has stretched across the pond and to other regions too. It’s a single day in November, the day after the US holiday of Thanksgiving, where retailers heavily discount thousands of items in the build-up to Christmas.

Many retailers now start their Black Friday deals early, meaning that the Black Friday period can last for the entire second half of November. Retailers like to make the most of the opportunity to sell more products in an ever-more competitive market. 

Black Friday is followed by Cyber Monday. Originally this saw online sales following the store sales, but now it’s very much part of the big sale season, falling on the Monday after Black Friday.

When is Black Friday 2021?

  • 26 November 2021

Black Friday is officially Friday 26 November 2021 and Cyber Monday will be on Monday 29 November 2021.

But the sales have started well before these dates, with deals appearing in early November.

Currys PC World reported six orders per second during Black Friday 2020, and during the first 16 hours of Black Friday 2019, Amazon UK says its customers ordered more than 180,000 video games and accessories, over 170,000 kitchen products while the best-selling tech was its own products, Phillips Hue Smart Bulbs, Sony’s wireless noise-cancelling headphones, the Ultimate Ears Boom 2 speaker, Sonos One as well as the Shark Lift-Away Vacuum Cleaner. The Nintendo Switch also sold well – trends we expect to continue in 2021.

We will be updating highlighted deals across retailers and brands as and when they go live, both in the buildup to Black Friday, the day itself and throughout Cyber Monday.

Tips for bagging a Black Friday bargain

PriceSpy has the below tips for consumers looking to get the best deals this Black Friday. 

1. Check out the competition

The first thing to check is if an offer really is as good as it sounds. Is the same TV available at an even better price elsewhere? 

2. See through the ‘normal price’ bluff

Shops often dress discounts up to look bigger than they are. They do this by raising the price shortly before the sale and then compare the sale price to this elevated standard price. 

3. Compare the features

If shoppers don’t know exactly what they want, it’s common to just buy up the biggest bargains during a sale. However, they may not be getting the best deal. Be sure to compare product features and characteristics of similar models.

4. Preparation is key

Create a wish-list of products and try not to deviate from it too much. A good price on something you don’t need is not a bargain. Setting price alerts will notify shoppers as soon as the prices drop, so they don’t miss the boat.

5. It’s not just gadgets

A lot of people still associate Black Friday with electronics. This is no longer the case. In fact, a diverse range of shops discount their products. Last year, PriceSpy saw an average saving of 15 per cent off its home and garden category.
