It didn’t take long for Black Friday to take off around the rest of the world. It started off in America as a discount day following Thanksgiving in the United States. It is often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season and is always on the Friday following Thanksgiving.
Visa Europe are expecting the number of online transactions to increase by more than a fifth in comparison to last year. British shoppers are expected to spend £1 million every three minutes. That is £6,000 a second! (Source)
With so many sites now preparing to offer huge savings we have grouped together the best UK sites that your shopping frenzies should include. You have to be quick with a lot of these deals as they are based on a ‘when it is gone it is gone’ philosophy.
So, without further ado, here are your Black Friday destinations for the online shopping extravaganza of 2014! Some of them will already of started (particularly true of Amazon who are running a black week) so take a peek before Friday to avoid missing out.

John Lewis, director of online expects sales to be bigger than last year. “That’s saying something: last year, online traffic between midnight and 8am was four times higher than John Lewis had seen before, while mobile traffic peaked between 7am and 8am, at 14 times more than its previous record.” (Source)

A huge range at Very but they are staying shtum for now. Their Black Friday deals commence at 8am on the day.

Asda will surely get a boost on this day of deals via their parent company Walmart, nicknamed the godfather of Black Friday in the US.
 

Apple

The single message on Apple’s site is currently:

“(RED) and the global health community have reached a critical turning point in the fight against AIDS in Africa. Together, they’re getting closer to delivering the first generation in over 30 years to be born free from the disease. The purchases you make through Apps for (RED) and any (PRODUCT)RED™ merchandise can create a lasting impact on the future of millions.” (Source)

As part of this campaign they will be donating a portion of their retail and on-line sales from Monday 1 December, which is World AIDS Day, to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.

Wherever you find yourself this Friday make sure you do two things:

  1. Don’t blow your budget on yourself – there will be a lot of tempting deals around but you have Christmas present to buy! The odd treat is only human mind.
  2. Have a budget so that you do not go nuts on Friday and end up paying out way more than you ever intended. It is easy done and ultimately cancels out the positive of hunting for deals in the first place.

Happy shopping everyone!
