Black Friday Deals and Vouchers 2020

When is Black Friday 2020?

Black Friday 2020 falls on Friday the 27th of 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.

While Cyber Monday is strictly a 24 hour sale limited only to online stores Black Friday tends to be a five day shopping bonanza. It’s clear to see why this mammoth shopping event is a key date in the shopping calendar. 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.

If you love bargain hunting and saving money as much as we do, then you’re definitely not going to want to miss the amazing Black Friday deals and vouchers for some of the biggest retailers this year.

Black Friday in the UK

For the last few 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 2020.

When it comes to how much we’re spending in Black Friday sales, the average amount spent per person was £220 in 2018, and it’s expected that the average shopper will spend the same or 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.

As for 2018, Barclaycard reported that transactions were up by 10% since 2017 by just 3pm on Black Friday. Overall, the UK spend on Black Friday 2018 reached 1.49billion, up 7.3% from 2017.

So what does this tell us about Black Friday 2020? 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.
