Many people like to get in on the stroke of midnight to get the best offers. This is a good strategy and if you can be ready to go, then you're going to get the best deals.
The peak times for most sites is around 6:00am to 7:00am GMT. This is when a lot of people are starting to wake up and the first wave of sales starts to take hold. Traffic drops off slowly throughout the day after this period, but be aware that the sites are very busy and once products are gone, they are gone.
Here are 3 tips to make sure that your Black Friday experience goes as smoothly as possible and also find the best deals.
Try and find the products that you might want to buy before Black Friday starts. Research and make a shortlist of said products. This means that you've already done the work, now you just need to find the price that you want to pay.
Go into the day with a budget in mind and stick to that budget. The offers that you see flying about can be an easy way to spend a lot of money quickly. By knowing your budget prior to buying, you know what you can and can't afford.
There's going to be lots of moving parts come Black Friday with countdown clocks and "last minute" deals. Keep your head and remember that if you can't find the product you are after on one site, there are likely going to be others where you can buy.
Cyber Monday is the Monday after the Black Friday sale. It originally came about as the online retail sector wanted in on the Black Friday action, which was mainly with in-store offers when it first started.
As Black Friday is now as much online as it is on the high street, Cyber Monday is basically just an extension of the offers that many retailers fire up. You're still going to be getting amazing deals throughout Black Friday, that weekend and then the Monday, which is great from a consumers point of view.
23rd November 2018
I've seen as much as 50% from cooker sales with Black Friday. That being said, you should easily be able to find deals around 10%-30% for the most part, even on the more popular lines.
Whilst the name would suggest that it runs for just the one day (Friday), it actually runs much longer for most sites. You can start finding deals up to a week in advance on some sites and even up to a week after the official day. The best deals are usually on the day and Cyber Monday.
In 2018 it is projected that over £8billion will be spent across the Black Friday promotions week. Up from £810million in 2014.
