What and When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the biggest shopping days of the year and they are just around the corner. The official event occurs on the last Friday of November, 23/11/2018, and will last through to Cyber Monday, 26/11/2018. Last year, Black Friday related deals lasted for around three weeks and I’m predicting Black Friday related deals to last the whole month of November this year as the world starts adapting to the massive craze that is online shopping. Customers are also beginning to use this sales bonanza to pick up their Christmas gifts which is somewhat an inevitable chore when December comes around, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled not just for yourself, but also your loved ones.

What to Expect From This Year?
Amazon is usually the retailer that has the biggest sale across all the categories you can possibly think of, and they usually see online shopping events as the perfect opportunity to discount their own devices. Last year, the Amazon Echo’s price was reduced by £20, Amazon Echo Dot reduced from £49.99 to £34.99 and the Amazon Echo Plus was brought down from £139.99 to £109.99. The Amazon Fire tablets, Amazon Fire TV sticks and Amazon Kindle e-Readers also saw some heavy discounts.
Black Friday 2017 deals in the Gaming category was somewhat a revelation. We saw Currys PC World and Amazon reducing PS4 bundles to £199.99 and Xbox One S bundles to £169.99, and I believe this year will be no different with retailers taking advantage of FIFA 19 and Red Dead Redemption 2 in their bundle deals.
Black Friday is also home to the best 4K TV deals, as AO, Amazon, John Lewis and Currys PC World tend to compete with each other for the best TV deal. I saw the LG OLED C7 65-inch 4K HDR OLED TV go for £2499 at Currys PC World, which meant a whooping £1800 off list price. If you’re in the market for a TV, Black Friday is the best time to pick up a deal.
