Cyber Monday vs Black Friday – what’s the difference and which day is best for deals? – The Sun | The Sun

IF you are looking to bag a bargain in time for Christmas, you need to be prepared for two of the biggest shopping days in the UK – Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Both days promise all consumers fantastic deals as retailers across the UK slash their prices, but what is the difference between them?

What's the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Black Friday will be on Friday, November 25, 2022.

Each year, big retailers like Amazon, Argos and Morrisons use Black Friday to give massive price reductions to shoppers just before Christmas kicks in.

But if you miss out on the Black Friday deals, you can always bag a bargain on Cyber Monday.

The discounts keep on going until Cyber Monday, which is always the first Monday after Black Friday, so it falls on November 28, 2022.

Apart from these days, there are a couple of other differences between the two, one is that Cyber Monday deals only apply to online shops while Black Friday is in store as well.

Also, Cyber Monday is a strictly 24-hour shopping window but in recent years Black Friday has tended to be a five-day long affair.

Which day is best for discounts?

It's difficult to say categorically which day is better for discounts because the answer depends on what you're looking to buy.

If you're hoping to bag a bargain in technology, small appliances, cutlery, kitchenware or Apple products then Black Friday could be best for you.
