A recent study of 2,000 respondents by AO.com, found that Brits favourite shopping event is Black Friday. It also found that 19% will be using this Black Friday to do all of their Christmas shopping. While more than 1 in 3 said they will have completed all of their shopping by the end of November. How about that?
And so, it comes as no surprise that AO has already launched its Black Friday deals (we've listed some early birds below).
What Is Black Friday?
Black Friday originates from America, and it marks the start of the post-Thanksgiving sales. Amazon brought the concept over to the UK in 2010 and it has since developed into the biggest shopping event of the year. Most retailers offer discounts of at least 20% over the majority of the weekend.
When Is Black Friday?
This year Black Friday lands on Friday 27 November.
