Black Friday is the time that the biggest bargains of the year are offered from many major retailers like Amazon.

If there is something that you have been looking to buy (say, a telescope or new camera), then it’s worth looking out for a bargain to save yourself some money.

When is Black Friday 2018?

We don’t know yet, but Black Friday 2018 will probably fall on Friday 23rd November. This is because it is usually the day after Thanksgiving.

The Black Friday promotion on Amazon also tends to last a long time – last year it extended for nearly a month of the whole holiday season to 22nd December. However, the sales on individual items are often offered for a short period only – i.e. the price drops for as short as 24 hours and then goes back up again. Amazon said last year that a new deal was offered every five minutes over the four weeks they ran the promotion and so it’s worth checking in regularly.
