In recent years, Black Friday has become more and more popular in the UK. In 2015, Black Friday earned the title of the busiest online shopping day of the year. This does not look set to change for Black Friday 2016.
Whether you are looking for Christmas gifts or a treat for yourself, Black Friday is a great place to start. CashLady takes a look at the 10 hottest deals coming up on Black Friday 2016.
When is Black Friday 2016?
Black Friday always happens the day after Thanksgiving. In 2016, Black Friday falls on Friday 25th November.
One of the great things about Black Friday falling in November is you have more time to budget for Christmas after buying your Christmas gifts. Black Friday 2016 is a great way to bag a bargain and could offer better discounts than buying in a Christmas sale.
For many retailers, Black Friday is no longer a one day event. It now runs throughout the days and weeks before Black Friday.
