As you might know if you’re a keen-eyed bargain-snaffler, today is Black Friday, the day when tired Americans recover from a day of Thanksgiving self-stuffing by getting out of bed early and fighting each other for reduced stuff in all the shops. Sounds GREAT!
Helpfully, the cult of Black Friday has crept across the Atlantic and, a bit like over-elaborate ‘prom nights’, it looks like it could be here to stay. A whole host of retailers and etailers are causing price-slashing mayhem today and over the weekend so it’s the perfect time to do the bulk of your Christmas shopping. Helpfully, thanks to our wonderful friends at HotUKDeals, you can keep abreast of the best of the bargains by consulting their Black Friday guide.
