Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Tips 2017 in the UK

When’s Black Friday 2017 in the UK? And how did Black Friday start?

Black Friday this year is on 24th November. It traditionally falls the day after Thanksgiving in the USA and some US states have a public holiday on that day. Even if it isn’t a public holiday many people are off work or travelling making it an ideal time for retailers to attract them in to get a good discount. Retailers started offering discounts well before the Christmas shopping rush in 2010 and other retailers have followed suit. Nowadays Black Friday deals tend to be spread throughout November.

What about Cyber Monday?

Although Black Friday started in the high street Monday sees a big increase in online orders after shoppers have checked all the Black Friday deals. Some retailers drop prices even further for Cyber Monday, and some retailers start their promotions on the Monday rather than the Friday.

How to shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals

Savvy online shoppers keep wish lists or favourites when the retailer’s website allows. This helps to make sure you don’t buy on impulse but just buy what you want. Loading baskets in advance doesn’t always work as many online retailers empty your basket if you have been inactive for a period of time.

Stick to a list, either your shopping list for Christmas presents or classic wardrobe staples that you would buy ordinarily. Although sales are a good time to be tempted make sure you spend on what matters most.

Make room in your wardrobe for new items and for storing presents by selling off unwanted clothes and last year’s presents on an online marketplace. We’ve collated a useful guide to selling online where you can find top tips on selling on ebay, depop, Shpock and many other sites.

Check the returns policy. Some retailers offer reduced returns periods for sales, so make sure you have checked what the returns window is.
