Black Friday Deals and Vouchers 2018

When is Black Friday 2018?

Black Friday 2018 falls on Friday 23rd November. Historically it was a one day shopping spectacular but this year retailers are expected to launch their discounts in the week leading up to Black Friday and carrying them on throughout the weekend into Monday, also known as Cyber Monday.

Retailers will have heaps of different discounts and offers available on a wide range of products throughout the Black Friday period.

Save the date to do some serious shopping and bag yourself some unbelievable deals that simply can’t be matched in any other sale event in the year.

Black Friday in the UK

Since the hysteria of Black Friday arrived on British soil five years ago it’s grown in popularity year on year, surpassing the Boxing Day sales as the biggest shopping event of the year. As expected, American retail behemoths Amazon led the way in bringing the Black Friday craze across the Atlantic.

Naturally, the high street retailers had no choice but to keep up with the online retailers and their huge price cuts. Electronics retailers, department stores and supermarkets quickly followed suit until Black Friday truly cemented itself as a key date in the lives of British shoppers.

As some stores were slashing their prices by up to 80%, angsty shoppers were beginning to turn to violence to get their hands on the best discounts. Videos began circulating on social media showing masses of people shoving and shouting in a bid to be the first one through the shop doors and reach the heavily discounted goods. With fights breaking out in high street shops left right and centre, retailers began moving their Black Friday sale events online.

This proved a godsend for savvy bargain hunters who began shopping around for the best Black Friday voucher codes online from the comfort of their own home. After all, who really wants to be queueing outside a shop front in freezing November temperatures?

How popular is Black Friday in the UK?

For the last five years the popularity and buzz around Black Friday and Cyber Monday has grown exponentially year on year. According to the retail experts at PwC over three quarters of British retailers offered some kind of promotion or offer during the Black Friday period last year – a figure that’s set to rise in 2018.

When it comes to how much we’re spending in Black Friday sales, the average amount spent by one person has increased from £169 in 2016 to £225 in 2017, and it’s expected that the average shopper will spend even more this year.

In terms of how much money we’re spending overall, 2015 saw the UK’s daily sales tripled on Black Friday alone with a record-breaking £1.1 billion being spent. The following year saw savvy shoppers shun the high street stores which led to online sales hitting a record high with more than £1billion being spent online alone. According to Barclaycard 2016 saw a total splurge of £2.9billion throughout the day. That’s a huge increase in pounds spent since the previous year.

The spending didn’t stop there though as 2017 saw yet another increase in the amount spent. According to data from IMRG, the amount spent on UK online retail sites alone was up 11.7% to £1.39 billion. This even surpassed the original growth prediction of 9% for 2017.

So what does this tell us about Black Friday 2018? If previous years are anything to go by the shopping spectacular certainly doesn’t look like it’s going to be slowing down anytime soon. Spends are set to break records and more and more savvy customers are going to be opting for online Black Friday deals in lieu of high street chaos and frenzied shoppers.
