Black Friday 2018: Best deals from Amazon, Argos and Currys

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fast approaching and shoppers everywhere are gearing up for days of brilliant bargains. The US-inspired discount day is more popular than ever in the UK, with more retailers taking part each year and more customers trying to bag the best deals. Last year, the UK’s overall spending during the sales weekend was up 11.7 per cent from GBP1.39bn on the previous year, despite a drop in the number of customers shopping in-store.

What is Black Friday 2018 and when is it?

Research suggests that the Black Friday 2018 sales will exceed these numbers, with a lot of this predicted growth expected to come from Amazon, which has been a leader of the pack over the years.

In 2017, the online giant reportedly seized nearly 50 per cent of all online sales. So what is Black Friday and where can you find the best deals? If you want to get great discounts on your favourite products, here’s everything you need to know about the biggest shopping weekend of the year.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is an annual shopping event that first started in America and takes place on the Friday straight after Thanksgiving, when retailers would reveal major discounts on products ahead of the Christmas period.

This year, it will fall on November 23 – but many retailers will be offering deals and discounts in the run-up to the big day itself. Cyber Monday, however, is an online-only sale that falls on the Monday after Black Friday and is this year on November 26.

What deals to expect on Black Friday 2018
