It’s that time of year again! With Christmas and the New Year upon us, Americans are about to start carving turkeys, and shoppers everywhere (including here in Australia) are about to enjoy what has now become a global phenomenon: Black Friday sales.
What is Black Friday?
While Black Friday was originally a tradition in the US, it has become bigger and bigger in Australia over the past few years.
The tradition began in the 1950s when stores in the US offered deep discounts on their merchandise the day after Thanksgiving. This allowed stores to clear their shelves for the new season and consumers to get a weekend ahead of their holiday shopping. Since then, the tradition has gone global and now a huge number of retailers around the world are getting in on the Black Friday action.
Cyber Monday is a more recent addition to the shopping weekend as online retailers look to offer their own take on Black Friday goodness. But with the lines between retail and e-commerce blurring these days, Black Friday/Cyber Monday has become a connected week of deals.
When is Black Friday in 2023?
Black Friday 2023 technically takes place on Friday, November 24, and Cyber Monday takes place on Monday, November 27. However, the entire week prior is now unofficially known as “Black Friday Week,” and early deals start popping up that week and even earlier. A number of retailers, including The Good Guys and Amazon, as well as direct brands like Lenovo and HP, have already started their Black Friday sales!
What are the best items to buy on Black Friday/Cyber Monday?
During Black Friday week, you can expect massive discounts on big-ticket items like laptops, Hi-Fi, consoles and TVs. There also seems to be a slant on gadgets and gift items, which makes sense with the holidays around the corner. Online retailers will have strong deals in all categories. However, watch out for the following products in particular:
appliances: Retailers like The Good Guys and Bing Lee always go big on Black Friday by slashing prices on almost everything they offer. You can expect deals on washing machines, fridges, freezers, kettles, toasters and much more. If you’re looking to stock up on appliances for your home, these sites should be your first stop.
Game consoles: Finding console availability has been general over the past few years, but things are definitely looking up in Australia, with PS5 bundles readily available on Amazon. That means there should be choices of games and accessories for the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5 this year.
Smartphones: Amazon always offers very impressive deals on all kinds of smartphones.
Toys: Black Friday is probably the best time of year to shop for toys. The most sought-after toys will sell out quickly in the run-up to Christmas, so this is a great opportunity to get in early. We recommend checking out Amazon for the best deals on Lego, especially the massively popular Star Wars and Harry Potter sets.
televisions: Black Friday is all about big deals on the biggest products, and that means TVs. We expect almost all leading retailers to offer fantastic deals on TVs of all sizes from leading brands such as Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic. It’s best to shop around for the best TV deals because there will be so many, but you can’t go wrong with The Good Guys, Bing Lee or Kogan.
VPN networks: Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs, are a relatively new addition to the Black Friday shopping scene, but there are some good deals out there, especially leading up to Cyber Monday. Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important and VPNs offer online protection for your identity and data. All the top services are likely to offer discounted prices during the week, and you should be able to find good deals on the likes of NordVPN, Surfshark VPN, ExpressVPN, PureVPN and CyberGhost VPN.
Don’t forget to also keep an eye out for deals on travel, subscription services and laptops as these are likely to perform strongly this marketing season.
