    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?
