This year Black Friday falls on Friday 29th November. Most retailers will wait until close to the day to release their sales but in recent years, teaser sales have begun to spring up.
Black Friday started in the US and falls on the Friday following Thanksgiving. Since 2010, Black Friday has gained popularity in the UK and is now the biggest sale leading up to Christmas and one of the busiest days for retailers throughout the year.
The name ‘Black Friday’ came from retailers hoping to move out of the “red” (loss) and into the “black” (profit). As the official start of the holiday season, it has traditionally been the best time for stores to boost their profits.
Cyber Monday started in 2005 when the American National Retail Federation noticed that online sales increased on the Monday following Black Friday.
Unlike Black Friday, Cyber Monday is traditionally an online-only event. In recent years, however, the lines have blurred with Black Friday gaining more traction online and in store sales stretching out for the week following Black Friday.
Following Black Friday, Cyber Monday is on Monday 2nd December this year. So, if you missed a bargain on Black Friday, Cyber Monday is the day to snap it up.
