Black Friday, Cyber Monday - Get the Best Deals for Christmas


Here in the UK, we're getting the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping bug. In case you haven't heard of these phenomena, Black Friday is the first 'proper' Christmas shopping day in the US when huge, turkey-fuelled shopping frenzies occur across the States. People stampede for the chance to grab a bargain. Luckily, with forward2me's secure international shopping, you don't have to be crushed in the Black Friday rush. Just shop online and we'll do the rest.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is so named because stores officially went into profit, written in black rather than red ink in the account books. It sounds gloomy but actually marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Cyber Monday is the biggest global online shopping day and many stores have special deals for online shoppers. According to the Guardian, 'Sofa Sunday' is becoming an even bigger shopping day when folks put their feet up and shop on their mobile devices.

Black Friday Bargains

It's all about the deals. Many of the major retailers are getting ready for the Black Friday weekend already. Amazon already have some fantastically tantalising deals on games, tech and books. So good, their website just crashed on me! Just look online and we'll deliver using our door-to-door tracked delivery service.

Apple are even getting in on the act and are set to discount several products (rumours abound). You can register with several sites such as TechRadar to get the latest information about online deals as they come up. Retailers such as Very want you to register to receive information on their deals. In the UK, the retailers to watch out for are John Lewis, Argos and even eBay.

John Lewis is the one I'm going to keep an eye on for my Christmas goodies - they are honouring their 'Never Knowingly Undersold' policy on Friday so there could be some amazing Black Friday bargains. Argos have a countdown too so if there are any toys, games or household appliances that you want to renew this Christmas, take a look. Curry's will also have big Black Friday discounts. If you need a new dishwasher to cope with Christmas dinner, take a look on Friday. When you buy electricals, make sure that they are compatible with your country of residence and contact our customer services department if you have any other queries.

Well I think I know what I'm up to this weekend - Black Friday, Satellite Saturday, Sofa Sunday, Cyber Monday...I'll be square-eyed but at least it'll all be delivered. forward2me can do all the hard work for you too. Happy Black Friday hunting!
