Black Friday Countdown: Are You Waiting for the Black Friday 2016 Sales?
The Black Friday countdown is on. There are just 12 days left until Black Friday 2016, and stores are already sharing the products they will have on offer. Amazon is doing its usual Black Friday countdown, so now is the time to get your Christmas presents.
What Exactly Is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an American tradition. It falls the day after Thanksgiving, and is a chance for everyone to get into the shops for the major sales. For those in Britain, think of it like the Boxing Day sales.
Stores open at midnight—although some are now opening on Thanksgiving!—and there will be people queuing up waiting to get their hands on various products, usually tech items. Black Friday has started to spread to the likes of Canada, Britain, and other countries, although last year some of the stores made it clear that they weren’t going to do Black Friday at all. They would offer more sales throughout the Christmas buying period instead.
The Black Friday sales were traditionally just for in the stores. Cyber Monday would fall the Monday after Thanksgiving, and was the chance for people to buy online. Now, there is a mixture of sales on the two days.
Will You Get Your Christmas Gifts During Black Friday 2016?
This could be the time for you to snag your favorite Christmas gift for the kids. You could also find an excellent option for your partner or parents, without having to spend a fortune. I remember one year I managed to get the Harry Potter boxset for a fraction of the usual price because I spotted it on the Amazon site during the Black Friday countdown.
One thing that Amazon offers is the countdown deals. There are a few offers during the 12 days to Black Friday.
There is up to 50% off on products from now until Black Friday 2016, so you don’t even need to wait for many. Is this your chance to get your Christmas gifts?
