What is Black Friday?

Black Friday FAQs
Why is it called Black Friday?
The phrase ‘Black Friday’ became popular in the 1980s and originally referred to retailers operating at a loss from January to November but then becoming extremely profitable from the day after Thanksgiving as people would start shopping for the holiday season. The reason it was called ‘Black’ Friday is it was common for accountants to mark negative amounts in red ink and positive amounts in black ink.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday refers to the first Monday after US Thanksgiving and takes place on the 29th of November this year.
As Black Friday deals were traditionally only available in-store, in 2005, ‘Cyber Monday’ was created as the online equivalent. However, obviously, as shopping online has become more common over the years, Black Friday sales began to take place online as well as in-store.
Cyber Monday still exists though, and it’s not uncommon for stores to run one big sale from Black Friday all the way through to Cyber Monday. Some stores even offer bigger discounts on Cyber Monday but be warned: this is because most of their stock has been depleted by Black Friday sales.
How do I prepare for Black Friday?
The first thing you should do is set a strict budget for yourself. Decide whether you’re shopping for just yourself or if you want to snag some cheap gifts for the upcoming holiday season, and accordingly give yourself a firm but fair budget of how much you can spend during Black Friday.
The second is to have a look at online retailers before Black Friday and pick out items you’re interested in or that you’d like to buy. Then bookmark those pages so you can easily and quickly find them again when Black Friday deals start. We also recommend bookmarking this page and checking it regularly as we’ll be updating the page with each brand’s Black Friday deals ahead of Black Friday.
