What are Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, where retailers heavily discount thousands of items in the build-up to Christmas. Many retailers now start their Black Friday deals early, meaning that the Black Friday period can last nearly all of November. Keep in mind Black Friday is followed by Cyber Monday, as well.
It’s an online-only sale event the Monday after that essentially carries on the bargains for an extra day. Retailers like to make the most of the opportunity to sell more products in an ever-more competitive market.
When are Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022?
In 2022 Black Friday officially lands on Friday 25 November 2022, while Cyber Monday is 28 November 2022. Those are the official dates, but you can expect the deals to start appearing around the middle of November or earlier.
Certainly, once we pass the midpoint of November, you need to be paying attention to Black Friday.
