What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and is a perfect storm for retailers: many people in the states have the day off and, as a result, it's been the busiest shopping day of the year for nearly a decade. To make things even busier, many retailers now offer some of their best sale bargains on Black Friday.

 

When is Black Friday?

In 2015, Black Friday is Friday 27 November.

How did Black Friday get its name?

Take your pick: some say it's the day that retailers' profits finally move into the black, although Wikipedia's hive mind reckons that the true origin of the term comes from Philadelphia, where it referred to the disruptive pedestrian, and vehicle, traffic that occurred during the holiday.

Is Black Friday as big a deal as it seems?

Yes it is. Every year there are reports of fisticuffs as bargain-crazed shoppers beat each other up, partly because of the practice of using "doorbusters": amazing and excruciatingly limited deals to attract as many customers as possible. US-based retailers such as Amazon are now keen to make it a tradition here in the UK, too.

Is Black Friday connected to Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is the Monday immediately after Black Friday (that'll be Monday 30 November in 2015, then), and it was invented in 2005 in an attempt to create an online equivalent of Black Friday. What this has resulted in now, though, is an entire four-day weekend of hot deals both in store and online.

What is Giz UK doing for Black Friday, then?

No one likes a tech bargain more than us – and we don't want to keep them all to ourselves. So we'll be beavering away tirelessly to bring you the hottest deals as they go live online on the back day – and any we think are worth your time beforehand, too. Why you'll need to keep your wits about you, because many deals only last for an hour or until stocks run out, 2014's deals hub broke Gizmodo UK records it was so popular, so we'll be sure to sate your sales cravings this year, too.
