I recently stumbled into a thing of beauty called Black Friday. Black Friday is the big sales day in the US that happens the day after Thanksgiving. Until a few days ago, I didn’t realise that although undoubtedly not as a big as in the US, more and more UK shops are starting to warm up to it.
As someone who absolutely loves grabbing a bargain, I am wondering why I didn’t follow through on Black Friday since the first time I heard about it on South Park a few years ago. The goodness of the internet has made sure it’s not just our friends across the pond that has all the fun.
I’ve gone through the web and found the best places to make the most out of the day. Ready, Set, Shop!
Amazon – There will be new deals every 10 minutes on Black Friday and the week following with continued reductions. I had a look around the website and you can already get 70% of fragrances and 60% off clothing and jewellery.
Boots – Think gadgets, hair and beauty products galore.
John Lewis – Not wanting to be left out, (their website states: If our competitors are having a sale, then we are having a sale!), John Lewis will be looking to match any sale priced items during the Black Friday weekend. Laptops, DVDs and all sorts of gadgets are also up for grabs.
If you have a nectar card, good news! Shop at Debenhams, Gap, House of Fraser, Topshop, Nike, Next, Swarovski, Accessorize, Crabtree & Evelyn, Matalan, Monsoon and Notonthehighstreet via nectar.com and earn double or triple points.
The thing to remember for me is to have a list of items to buy, a budget and most importantly a clear head so I don’t wound up buying everything and having no money left over for the Boxing Day sales ;).
Happy Shopping and thanks for stopping by!
