Originally a US import, Black Friday has become a firm favourite on the world’s shopping calendar – especially online, where it is often possible to snag mega-bargains.
Deals usually run from the fourth Friday in November to the following Monday, which has now been dubbed “Cyber Monday”, as online retailers in particular slash their prices.
Its popularity can be attributed to the fact that the Black Friday weekend falls on one of the final shopping weekends before Christmas.
Black Friday can be a great time to get everyone’s presents sorted in one fell swoop. Some of the most popular categories to scout out for the biggest bargains include makeup, beauty products, gift ideas, speciality food and hampers, and household supplies.
You might be surprised to find out that there are even Black Friday supplement deals, including vitamin deals and protein deals, which makes it a great time to stock up for the year ahead.
