What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a retailing event that takes place in November on the first Friday after Thanksgiving. It offers shoppers considerable discounts on a wide range of products, and began in the US as a way of enticing Americans into stores after Thanksgiving. Nowadays, Black Friday is commonplace in the UK as well as the US, often marking the start of the Christmas retailing period, and is popular with shoppers and retailers alike.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and is a lot like Black Friday, but with more of a focus on online deals. It was created in 2005 after marketers noticed increased sales on every Monday after Thanksgiving. Because of their close proximity, some retailers tend to treat the Black Friday and Cyber Monday as the same event, a practice which has become more common as online shopping has increased in popularity. Cyber Monday is another great opportunity to get sizable discounts on your online purchases, especially if you missed Black Friday’s deals.
Will Currys offer Black Friday deals?
Tech deals are very popular on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with tech retailers slashing prices across their ranges, and Currys are no exception. Some of Currys’ most impressive discounts can be found in their Black Friday sales, which offer a fantastic chance to grab devices at a fraction of their usual price. Currys even have their own Black Friday page on their website, where you can see all the latest updates on what kind of deals to expect this year.
When will Currys offer Black Friday deals?
Black Friday is technically only one day, but Currys get so into the spirit that they often start their Black Friday deals a few days before the event and keep the deals coming until just after Cyber Monday. This year, Black Friday will take place on Friday 25th November, with Cyber Monday following on Monday 28th November, so keep your eyes out from around mid-November right through to the end of the month and into early December.
Unsurprisingly, Currys' Black Friday deals often prove very popular, with plenty of shoppers looking to snap up deals whilst they're around. According to the Currys Black Friday page, sales data from 2021 suggests it's best to shop before about 7am or 8am on the day of Black Friday if you want to avoid the rush.
What kind of discounts can I expect in the Currys Black Friday sale?
Black Friday brings customers price drops right across the Currys range. Whether it’s smartphones, kitchen appliances, TVs, laptops or fridge freezers, there’s savings to be had on leading brands like Apple, Dyson, Sony, LG, Bosch and more.
Last year, Black Friday fell on Friday 26th November, and we saw deals of up to 70% off Currys products. TechRadar reported two types of sales as part of the Black Friday event: the main sale, which was ongoing, and flash sales, which were around for a limited time only. Currys may opt for the same model this year, so it’ll be worth checking each day for the best offers, and snapping up deals as and when you see them.
We also saw exclusive Black Friday discount codes on offer, such a bundle code for the Nintendo Switch with a selection of games. Keep your eyes peeled here at MyVoucherCodes for any exclusive codes we can bring you.
