It might seem to have come around quickly, but believe it or not, as of today there are only 100 days until it’s Christmas Day.

While we all have our fingers crossed that another lockdown can be avoided, you can be sure there will still be plenty of seasonal goodwill around when it comes to Christmas gifts.

One day which always figures highly in the run-up to Christmas – in shopping terms at least – is Black Friday, when folks across the UK and beyond take to the shops and online in the hope of nabbing themselves a bargain as the festive season gets underway.

When can you hope to make the most of the seasonal deals this year?

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday is set to go ahead on Friday, November 26.

This will be followed by Cyber Monday on Monday, November 29.

As normal though you can rest assured that many sites and shops will start offering promotions in the weeks building up to the day itself, so keep your eyes peeled!

It isn’t yet clear which retailers will be taking part in Black Friday, although the likes of Argos, Amazon, John Lewis, and Currys usually participate, offering days of discounts to their customers.

Traditionally, Black Friday discounts end at 11.59 pm on the day itself, or when the discounted stock runs out.

However, many big brands now extend their deals over the weekend and in most cases into the Monday of the following week.

Although Cyber Monday was originally created as the online alternative to Black Friday, deals are now offered online across the entire weekend.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to wait until Black Friday, it’s worth noting that as of today there are 100 shopping days until Christmas 2021, so start thinking about gift ideas now.
