Black Friday 2020: Best UK deals currently available

The official date may be Nov 27th but deals are available earlier than ever

by Andy Bassett - Updated:

This year Black Friday will take place on 27th November and while it may well have an official, singular date upon which it falls, Amazon and others are introducing many a bargain well ahead of time.

The relentless adoption of the U.S. based Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions on this side of the pond has led to UK consumers fully engaging with the spending spree in the run up to Christmas. Indeed, so ingrained in the UK consumer mindset is Black Friday that plenty of shoppers identify items they want months in advance and patiently wait for late November to come around before committing to the purchase.

Amazon:
While not strictly a Black Friday deal, there are a handful of popular 4K movies to help round out your UHD disc collection in Amazon’s 2 for £25 offer.



So, what Is Black Friday?

With Thanksgiving a longstanding and important national holiday in America, many workers took the following day off as annual leave (or phoned in sick!) to give themselves a long weekend. 

This essentially increased the number of shoppers over the period and it wasn’t long before stores started to take advantage of the increased footfall. In the early 1950’s, a more coordinated sales event on this Friday was created and it was this which eventually became tagged as Black Friday. 

Decades later, it started to become a fixture in the sales calendars of many other countries around the world, becoming increasingly popular in the UK after Amazon held the first Black Friday event in 2010. That was closely followed by the instigation of Cyber Monday after which the twin sales  extravaganzas took off spectacularly in the last few years.

As these events have become more popular, the whole ‘Black Friday / Cyber Monday’ period has melded into a single sales event covering the Friday to Monday span with many retailers also introducing offers well before and after the weekend period. This expansion only appears to be gaining traction, especially this year.

When exactly is Black Friday?

Traditionally, Black Friday is the Friday that immediately follows the U.S. Thanksgiving celebrations which take place on the fourth Thursday of November. Thus, Black Friday this year starts at midnight on 27th November. Cyber Monday will therefore officially be 30th November.

What’s Different This Year?

There’s no denying the fact that 2020’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales will be impacted by the restrictions and counter measures in place to combat the coronavirus outbreak, with in-store mooching replaced by far more emphasis on online browsing. However, this is a trend that was emerging prior to the current pandemic, with a reported 20 percent increase in online traffic around the Black Friday period last year.

Having these sales start earlier and last longer helps with the delivery logistics, with online stores already warning of potential shipping issues in the run up to Christmas. It also means that for high street retailers that are able to open, the flow of customers is not bottlenecked into a single day and the footfall is more controllable and therefore safer in the current climate.

What is Amazon doing for Black Friday?
