What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a day when shoppers can take advantage of *huge* discounts from various retailers. We’re talking hundreds of pounds off high-end TV sets, half price beauty products, designer clothing, the works.
When does Black Friday start?
Black Friday falls on the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (which is the fourth Thursday of November). Here the UK, Black Friday 2019 will fall on the 29th November (which is a Friday) so you still have time to bookmark the shops you want to visit and pick out the deals you’re going to go after.
When is Cyber Monday?
This is always the Monday after Black Friday, so this year it will fall on the 2nd December.
What is the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Honestly, there’s not much of a difference, as discounts usually last from the Friday through to the Monday, though some stores introduce new ‘flash’ deals on Cyber Monday.

Is it best to shop Black Friday online or in-store?
To be honest, the deals tend to be the same both online and in-store, but if you’d like to save yourself the aggro of waiting in line for stores to open and battling it out with other customers on the shop floor, then online is the way forward. Plus, some deals will start at midnight, so you’ll actually be able to do some shopping earlier.
