When is Cyber Monday 2020?

Every year Black Friday falls the day after Thanksgiving, which we appreciate means little here in the UK. Black Friday 2020 is on 27 November 2020, which means it's already been and gone.

Cyber Monday is also a thing, and that happens the very next Monday, so in 2020 it's on 30 November 2020. Expect huge discounts all weekend in between, and most likely in the weeks either side.

What is Black Friday?

After a holiday of giving thanks for family, friends, and settled life, American retailers opted to juxtapose Thanksgiving with a huge day of commercial spending. Who were we Brits to resist the allure of heavily discounted items, too?

It is debated whether or not Black Friday refers to a day retailers finally went ‘into the black’, meaning they finally made profit for the year thanks to heightened sales, or whether it actually has morphed from a description of horrible traffic in Philadelphia on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

When Black Friday first gained huge popularity about 10 years ago, it was usual to see newsreel of people physically fighting over big TVs in the middle of Walmart (or Asda in the UK, who has now opted to not take part because of the mayhem).

You can’t blame them really, as scenes often got out of hand at shops. But Black Friday has passed beyond trivial now as it has moved online, and it is serious business for retailers.

Black Friday tips

The most important thing to do when considering whether something is a good deal is to ask yourself: “Would I still want and buy this if it was full price?” Often the answer may be no, which means you need to think whether you’re saving money with a discount, or wasting it caught up in the excitement of a sale.

A deal for one person won’t be a deal for someone else, no matter how many times Amazon, Argos or John Lewis might tell you otherwise.

It’s important to track the prices of the gadgets and tech you want well before Black Friday too - you don't be fooled into a deal that's not such a great deal after all.

It isn’t unusual (or difficult, or illegal) for some retailers to put prices up on Black Friday. Yes, that’s right - sometimes discount prices are higher on Black Friday compared to the rest of the year because dishonest retailers know they will get more page views from people ready to click buy.
