Everything you need to know for Black Friday 2015
This Friday is Black Friday and there's nothing you can do about it (unless you're planning to do absolutely nothing about it, of course). There's going to be a lot of fuss made over it, and in part, for good reason - last year, there were some outrageously good bargains to be found.
For those who still aren't exactly sure what the day means, basically, in the UK, retailers have stolen America's infamous sales day, which falls the day after Thanksgiving. Or the last Friday of November. A lot of the major shops and supermarkets will be involved, although this year, some have decided to scale back their offerings or spread their deals out.
As ever, we'll be rounding up the best bargains for you, and pointing you in the direction of those that are offering proper deals, rather than those rubbish ones that offer 4% off some perfume you don't want.
Where are the best places to find a Black Friday bargain? Well, these shops have already put their markers down, with some of them already selling Black Friday deals right now.
Over the last couple of years, John Lewis and Amazon have been the better outlets for grabbing something on the cheap, however, 2015 will see even more retailers getting in on the action, so we'll have to wait and see. Amazon, of course, have offers on all day and have become known for their Lightning Deals, which means limited time-windows to buy certain products.
Very.co.uk have also been hot on Black Friday, and Curry's/PC World are keen on the day too. Concerning the latter, some Bitterwallet readers got some £150 Beats headphones for £40, which isn't to be sniffed at.
So keep your eyes peeled. You can get loads of bargains without actually going down the shops if you get everything online, presuming you want to avoid a bareknuckle brawl in a supermarket.
