What Is Black Friday?

Since it arrived on our shores three years ago, Black Friday has quickly become the UK’s biggest shopping day of the year, beating Boxing Day by a mile. Originally a US tradition, Black Friday is held the first day after Thanksgiving, where it traditionally marked the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the USA. American retailer Walmart bought it across the pond to British shores in 2013. Asda, part of the Walmart Group, introduced ‘Walmart’s Black Friday By Asda’ in the same year.

When Is Black Friday 2017?

This year, the shopping event will be on Friday 25th November but, many retailers are expected to kick off the deals as early as Monday 21st. Plus, many retailers will carry it on through the weekend, right until Monday 28th - Cyber Monday, and beyond.

Why Is It Called Black Friday?

The term was first coined in the 1960s to refer to the start of the Christmas shopping period. There are many theories as to where the ‘Black’ comes from. Some people say it refers to the ink accountants would mark profit in, others say it’s down to the amount of drivers out on the roads looking for deals, and inadvertently getting into accidents. It’s also thought that the term could have arisen in Philadelphia; Police officers were thought to use it in a negative light, due to the surge of shoppers descending on the city to take advantage of the sales.

Black Friday in the UK

Many people in the UK criticise Black Friday and question why we should copy the American holiday. However, now it has caught on, it's sure to be a permanent fixture in the British shopping calendar. Especially, considering the growth in spending year-on-year, in 2015 UK shoppers spent a total of £1.1bn, which is a 35% rise from 2014. Moreover, the figure even beats projection; analysts expected that Black Friday 2015 would only amount to £1.07bn.

Despite the robustly healthy financial picture, not all is rosy, with much criticism arising from the ugly riot-like scenes that have played out in shopping centres and, particularly, the big supermarkets. In 2014, the Asda riots were particularly newsworthy, as their Wembley flagship store descended into chaos, with customers grappling over HD TVs. A Tesco store saw similar scenes, in Manchester; one store was forced to close after breakouts of fighting. In Cardiff, Tesco staff members were reduced to tears, whilst a female staff member was reported to receive a black eye in Stretford. Much of the quarrelling and tussling revolved around the 50inch Blaupunkt TVs which were discounted in the sale, despite some stores only offering as little as £60 price slashes. It wasn’t just TVs, other popular items causing playground antics included Beats By Dre headphones and coffee makers.

Black Friday Deals Stats

Black Friday is here to stay and, despite a few notable exceptions, it’s a great day to make some serious savings. Our voucher codes and discounts can help you do exactly that. On top of huge offers, we’ve gathered some interesting facts and figures on previous Black Friday’s to keep you well informed.

It was noted last year that at least 15 retailers suffered an overload of traffic to their website, resulting in crashes - not exactly conducive to making online sales. So, although shopping online is a lot safer and more chilled out, that doesn’t mean you’ll get your hands on what you’re after easily. If Black Friday has taught us one thing, it’s that Brits are competitive bargain hunters.

In 2014, 37.5% more consumers shopped online than in-store, compared with 2013. A hefty £562,500 was spent every minute. Whilst the majority of purchases were made prior to 9am, meaning that the bargain-hungry Great British public was bargain hunting whilst at work, naughty. Consumers clicked 6 times per second, which amounts to 5,267 per minute. 30% of deals offered by retailers are home furnishings, whilst 20% are electronics, the most popular being flat-screen TVs, laptops and tablets.
A really fascinating stat is that it was estimated that returns from Black Friday purchases in 2015 were as high as £130million. So don’t be shy, buy it on the day and send it back if it’s not what you wanted. Make sure you check out the returns policy before doing so – make sure you don’t have to pay for postage or a restocking fee to return unwanted items.

Top Black Friday Tips

  • Try to shop in the early hours - avoid shopping in the early morning as retailer websites will be clogged up with 9-5ers.
  • Take advantage of Black Friday deals to buy Christmas presents, don’t wait for the prices to rise again, Christmas can be expensive, so act early.
  • Check out the deals you want to go after ahead of time, the big stores will all list their best deals way ahead of time.
  • Do your research – some retailers use Black Friday to sell off older and lower spec electricals items, often with huge discounts making them attractive. Find out beforehand what you features you need so you don’t accidentally buy the wrong item.
  • Sign up to PayPal/update your card details before the day – that way you’ll enjoy a faster checkout, without having to enter your bank details every time.
  • If you choose Click & Collect make sure you keep a note of what you bought and where.
Enjoy yourself, Black Friday only comes along once a year, so be well prepared to tick off your bucket list and make some ridiculous savings.

Amazon was one of the first retailers to bring Black Friday to the UK. You’ll find the majority of the best bargains of up to 90% off on the Lightning Deals page.

Last year fitness tracker FitBit was a big seller, as were Dyson products. So, expect huge discounts throughout its many departments, especially fashion, gadgets and home appliances.

Top Tip for Bargain Hunters:

Watch out for Apple sales – with big reductions expected on iMacs, MacBooks and more, on top of John Lewis’s exclusive extended 3 year warranty, chances are this top brand will sell out quickly. Plus, look out for Price Match deals, they’ll be better than ever!

Tesco’s Black Friday Event is sure to be massive. Last year they offered discounts of up to 70% on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, IPads, Tablets, furniture, popular toys, as well as Christmas decorations and wine for early holiday shoppers.

Top Tip for Bargain Hunters:

Argos is another retailer where you can save money on delivery by using Click & Collect. Last year offers included huge reductions on coffee machines, Disney Frozen toys, TV, iPad, Nutrininja and more. So you’ll find some of 2016’s biggest technology and toys will be heavily reduced during the promotion – perfect for the little ones Christmas presents.

ASDA

Despite the fact it’s parent company exported Black Friday to the UK from the USA, last year ASDA cancelled its own Black Friday promotions. Instead, it opted to lower prices across the board. Also, fuel prices were lowered in its petrol stations by 4p.However, last year was the biggest Black Friday ever and ASDA missed out on a huge share of the profits, so there’s every chance they’ll be back on board for 2016.

Top Tip for Bargain Hunters:

the deals will be on toys and electricals, they’ll come and go quite quickly, so be on the lookout.

ASOS On Black Friday


Expect the fashion bargains to come thick and fast – and ASOS is the perfect place to find amazing discounts a wide range of the big brands you love. Last November the retailer issued a 20% off all orders deals, so we’d expect to see similar discounts.

Very

Last year Very really pulled it out of the bag, promoting hourly deals on furniture, electricals and fashion. On top of that, there were a host of offers running for 24 hours.

Last year M&S knocked a third of FitBits, up to 50% off fashion, up to 50% off fragrances & beauty and the same on homeware making it an extremely popular choice for those shopping for Christmas presents. We’re sure 2016 is set to be bigger than ever.
