Black Friday FAQs
When is Black Friday 2023?
This year, Black Friday falls on 24th November 2023. However, as the competitiveness of Black Friday deals have risen, we have started to see many deals much earlier in the month, with some starting almost a week before Black Friday itself. The likes of Amazon and Currys are set to have deals as early as 16th November, so keep your eyes peeled for deals from your favourite retailers.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday originated in the US and was known for being the huge sale event following Thanksgiving when many of the leftover stock was massively reduced in price. It became known as Black Friday based on the number of accidents that happened during these hectic, in-person sales. Now, with the convenience of shopping online, it is a much safer sale event and has spread across the world.
What can I buy in the Black Friday sales?
The great news about Black Friday is that a majority of retailers take part to some extent. Largely, though, this is the best time of year to get huge deals on tech and fashion/beauty. For example, check out offers from some of your favourite stores such as Cult beauty, or browse these Black Friday Pandora deals where we have seen up to 25% off sitewide!

Cyber Monday FAQs
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is officially the last day of the Black Friday sales event. On this day, people flood online and in-person stores to grab the last remaining big bargains and it was originally created to convince people to shop online (supposedly to prevent some of the infamous Black Friday accidents). Over the years it has become somewhat of a sales event in itself. Now, Cyber Monday often sees some retailers adding additional deals or slashing their prices even further.
When is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday this year will be on Monday 27th November 2023. However, due to the popularity of the sale event, you may see some of the deals extended even past this date.
Should I buy on Black Friday or wait for the Cyber Monday sales?
People often ask whether they should go ahead and shop for the Black Friday sales when it comes around or whether they should hold off and see if better deals become available on Cyber Monday. Our advice would be to buy on Black Friday if you have found something you've been looking for for a good price. Often, price reductions are not much bigger on Cyber Monday. Plus, there is always the chance that the items you want may run out of stock. So we recommend buying as soon as a good deal pops up.
Will there be Make up and Clothing deals in the Cyber Monday sales?
Absolutely. Just because the event has 'Cyber' in the name, it does not mean the sales are exclusively tech-based. If you're looking to stay up-to-date with some of the best deals post-Black Friday, keep an eye on our Black Friday Make Up Deals page as well as our Clothing deals page!
Can I find Cyber Monday deals on Tech/Electronics?
You can! Check out some of these retailers to make sure you save on your electronic buys during this busy sale season:
Currys: Grab deals on 4K TVs, Headphones and Speakers, Coffee Machines, Vacuum cleaners and so much more when you shop the Currys Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. The major retailers regularly offers hundreds of pounds off big items!
John Lewis: Grab up to 70% off in the huge John Lewis Cyber monday sales!
Amazon: Grab up to 20% off Kindles, Amazon Alexa devices and so much more throughout the Amazon Cyber monday sales!
How do I prepare for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales?
You know what they say: fail to prepare and you prepare to fail. Here is our handy step-by-step guide to making sure you're prepared for the sale season ahead:
Make a list: It can be easy getting swept up in the sales and you may ending up buying things you don't truly want or need. We recommend making a list of products you're interested in before shopping so you don't end up buying things unnecessarily.
Observe prices before the sales: So, you've made your list of items you'd like and you're preparing for the sales. We advise that you take note of the prices of items you're looking to buy before the sale season begins. Some retailers will raise their prices before the big event so that their price reductions look bigger - don't be caught out!
Check the returns: It is a well-known fact that the week following Black Friday is filled with people returning spontaneous buys. So, make sure you check the returns policy before you buy! Don't lose money by overpaying for returns.
