Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Black Friday shoppers get ready to snatch deals in-store and online

Most retailers start their Black Friday sales on Monday 20th November and keep deals running until the following Monday (Cyber Monday).

Whatever you've been eyeing for the previous year, a little preparation (and self-control) can make sure you get the best deals and avoid feeling cheated or shortchanged.
