ovember is here, and bargain-hunters across the country are readying themselves for the biggest sales event of the year: Black Friday.
The shopping party of the year is back again, and the timing couldn’t be better. Who isn’t hunting for a bargain with headlines as they are?
If you’ve never taken part in the Black Friday sales, this year offers more incentive than most. The Black Friday extravaganza is the ultimate time to bag expensive items that need replacing around the house – think fridge freezers, washing machines and mattresses.
Arguably the most important piece of furniture you’ll ever own, a great mattress is essential for health, mood and general wellbeing.
What is Black Friday?
A worldwide phenomenon, Black Friday is a sales event on a scale you’ve never seen. Practically every retailer, brand and vendor uses this pre-Christmas opportunity to slash prices to yearly lows, allowing shoppers to grab a bargain or cut the cost of items that are usually out of their financial reach.
When is Black Friday 2022?
This year the hallowed day falls on November 25, the day after our friends across the pond mark Thanksgiving. The easiest way to remember is that it takes place on the fourth Friday of November. Originally a one-day affair, you can now expect sales to start weeks before the date.
When is Cyber Monday 2022?
While the sales officially kick off on Friday, they run right the way through the weekend and finish in blazing style on Monday, when tech products traditionally take the sales spotlight. This year the date for Cyber Monday is November 28.
If you’re hoping to scoop discounts on all things tech, Cyber Monday is your best bet.
What were the best deals from Black Friday weekend last year?
All the big players came out in force for the sales; think leading names such as Simba, Emma, Silentnight and more. Pounds tumbled off price tags, with many brands sweetening the deal with freebies like bedding, sheets and free delivery.
What kinds of deals can we expect this year?
If anything, this year is set to eclipse last year’s event with even deeper discounts on beds of all kinds, from all foam, pocket spring and hybrid models which offer the best of both worlds.
