THINGS TO KNOW

Falling almost immediately after Thanksgiving and just a month before Christmas, Black Friday falls on 23 November this year, and Cyber Monday, on 26 November. Both have gained well-deserved traction in the UK as they offer bargain-hunters big savings on everything from smart home tech to mattresses and even sofa beds.

Not only does this huge annual shopping event mark the start of the festive shopping season, but it ensures bargain hunters can score some deals in time for Christmas. Although it's called Black Friday, the sales will, however, last for around a week or so, with some retailers such as Amazon offering price cuts before then. 

THINGS TO CONSIDER

It's a well known fact that many products' prices change frequently, so how do you know you're getting the best deal? Checking the price history of what you're planning to buy on CamelCamelCamel.com or PriceSpy will tell you whether the savings are real or not, and whether a price is likely to re-occur.

It's also likely that the product you're lusting over will be discounted again soon (think Boxing Day sales). So, always check, rather than be distracted by the recommended retail price, especially if you've got a big ticket home buy in mind such as a fridge or freezer, or a TV.
