Why you should be considering our Black Friday deals
Black Friday and Cyber Monday marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. We are offering some fantastic discounts on gift vouchers and overnight stays ideal for Christmas gifts or treating yourself.
The phrase originates from the United States and is applied to the day after Thanksgiving where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur. However, here in the UK, it was adopted by the Police and emergency services to refer to the Friday before Christmas when revellers pack their local pubs, bars and restaurants. UK retailers have jumped on the bandwagon over the last few years, so bargain-hunters now get the chance to snap up incredible deals in the lead up to Christmas.
Black Friday marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Retailers often help shoppers “keep in the black” by offering discounts and promotions during the gift-buying season. Typically, it tends to be the busiest shopping day of the year. Hordes of shoppers invade their favourite stores, desperate to make the most of the deals.
Initially, the sales began early on Friday, with retailers opening the doors sometimes as early as 4am. More recently, more offers are also being put online to take the pressures off front line staff and facilities such as parking. Some people have been so keen to get the best deals in the past that employees have been left trampled in some of your favourite shops, and chaotic scenes have been witnessed.
We think so! While there are some bargains to be had, shoppers are advised to do some research before rushing to buy. It is easy to get swept along by the hype and excitement on the day, so make sure you are getting a good deal when hitting the sales.
This year Black Friday is on Friday 23rd November 2018, but many retailers have already started discounting. So, it is the perfect time to grab a bargain.
Unlike Black Friday, which evolved from the US, Cyber Monday is an online-only sale started in the UK. For some, it's the last chance to bag a bargain before all the Black Friday discounts end. Traditionally, it is the first Monday after the final payday before Christmas and where shoppers started their Christmas gift-buying in earnest. This year it is on Monday 26th November 2018.
All of our offers are ideal for spoiling family, friends or even as a treat yourself with our massive savings.
