| 18 November, 2018, 18:16

If you want to see more general Black Friday deals, do head on over to our main deals page for a list of all deals running through the month.

Amazon has unveiled its Seven Days of Black Friday promotion, which will offer customers heavy discounts on thousands of products across various departments.

Prime membership is only £7.99 a month and can be cancelled at any time - so it may save you money, in the long run, to sign up now just for Black Friday and then cancel your membership next month.

Along with many devices being reduced in price there are also savings on entertainment across Amazon.co.uk.


Police officers in Philadelphia, USA, first used the term "Black Friday" in the 1950s, when large crowds of tourists and shoppers came to the city the day after Thanksgiving, creating chaos, traffic and shoplifting opportunities.

A number of chains, including M&S, have turned their back on Black Friday as it puts pressure on them to cut prices at what should be the industry's most profitable time.

Arizonans' next best bet is JCPenney, which offers a 65 percent average Black Friday discount.

The name "Black Friday" soon grew throughout the U.S and today, it commonly marks the start of the Christmas season, where shops compete to offer the best deals. "Anything at or above that is a real Black Friday bargain", Gonzalez said.
