Already wondering 'when is Black Friday 2020?' or perhaps if there will be one at all? Although it is too early to say for sure how Covid-19 will affect THE biggest sales event of the year, we are expecting it to go full steam ahead. So find out exactly when Black Friday and Cyber Monday will fall next year and make a date in your diary for this huge date in the online retail calendar.
When is Black Friday 2020?
In 2020, Black Friday falls on 27 November and Cyber Monday follows on 30 November, so that's a whole weekend that will be packed with deals, with everything from technology to homeware and toys to appliances reduced to grab-me-while-you-can prices. And just like this year, we'll be covering every one of them to make shopping the Black Friday sales as easy as possible.
When do the Black Friday deals start in 2020?
Black Friday is no longer just a one-day event, so deals typically start in early November as retailers try to get ahead of their competitors. So what does that mean for us shoppers? The earlier the deals are released, the longer they go on for and the more chance we have of securing a bargain TV or smart fridge that we've had our eye on for weeks.
Once Black Friday 2020 rolls around, we'll be covering every deal as it happens, keeping you up to date with all the best offers out there. In the meantime, keep up to date on our deals page, where we publish the best offers on the high street and beyond, every single day.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday started in the USA. The term had previously been used for bad economic events like Friday 24th September 1969 when a group of financiers tried to manipulate the gold market, leading to an economic crash. However, it was then applied to the shopping chaos that was noted in Philadelphia on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1961 and the name has stuck. With many people taking this day off and using it to begin their Christmas shopping, it is one of the busiest days in the commercial calendar, both on the high streets and online.
Black Friday is no longer just a US phenomenon – it's gained unstoppable momentum in the UK over recent years, too. Along with Cyber Monday, both events are loved by bargain hunters as they offer the chance to make big savings on everything from tech and to cushions.
With the weekend falling about a month before Christmas, it is a great opportunity to bag Christmas gifts and winter deals.
When is Cyber Monday 2020?
Cyber Monday is always the Monday straight after Black Friday, so next year Cyber Monday 2020 falls on 30 November. Traditionally, this is when you'll see lots of electronics and technology discounted.
What is the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Not a great deal really, since many deals run from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and beyond.
Once upon a time, Black Friday offered great deals on consumer electronics, while Cyber Monday focused more on clothing and jewellery bargains. Now, though, you can get great deals on everything across the entire weekend.
Will Amazon have a Black Friday sale in 2020?
