What is Black Friday?

Originating from the United States in the early 2000s, Black Friday marks the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is symbolically seen as the beginning of the Christmas shopping period.

Over the years, the day has grown to become a massive sale event. Thousands of global retailers now offer huge savings on the day, often offering their lowest-ever prices from the entire year.

When does Black Friday start?

This year Black Friday started on Friday 24 November.

When does Black Friday end?

When it started, Black Friday only lasted 24 hours. But nowadays, most retailers and brands don't just limit their sales to a single day. So instead, we see deals last until midnight on Cyber Monday (27 November). However, all the best deals do tend to sell out fast, so we'd snap the below deals up quick.

What are the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for 2023? Here's our rundown...
