The term “Black Friday” was coined in the 1960s to mark the kickoff to the Christmas shopping season. “Black” refers to stores moving from the “red” to the “black,” back when accounting records were kept by hand, and red ink indicated a loss, and black a profit.
Black Friday deals in the UK are no longer a new thing. The phenomenon of this long weekend (with the following Cyber Monday playing a big part too) has been a part of the British shopping psyche since 2014, and it’s even forced the traditional retailers to change the way they’re selling.
It’s also meant that Christmas shopping has changed as well, with the last five Black Friday periods being the biggest spending Britain has ever seen, and this year’s black Friday UK deals are very likely to smash the record again – and you’ve only got 10 days to plan with the official day falling on 23 November 2018.
In 2017, Black Friday online sales started from early November. Black Friday deals are likely to be promoted across all major retailers, from the likes of Amazon, Argos and Currys to John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Fraser. There will be a whole host of deals on offer, so make sure you’re clued up on all things Black Friday before you hit the shops.
Luckily D-Link has it’s own Black Friday deals with 30% off rrp allowing you to enjoy all the other goodies you pick up this year and make sure they are safe and sound when you go on your Christmas holiday. Be sure to pick up one of our smart-plugs, cloud wire free cameras or next-gen super fast gaming routers!
