What time does Black Friday start?

Black Friday starts as stores open on November 24, 2017. Online stores may offer their deals when the day starts in the retailer’s country – so, for example, you will get Australian stores offering the deals a bit earlier than Canadian stores.


When do Black Friday sales end?

Black Friday sales will typically end when retail shopping hours end on the Friday. However, plenty of stores extend their sales across the weekend. Even more stores extend their sales online. If you’re worried you’ve missed out on something, it’s always good to double check which stores are extending their sales.


What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is the online version of Black Friday, with many retailers offering new or continued bargains online. Last year, shoppers spent a record $2.28bn, and this amount is expected to rise this year.


Why is it called Black Friday?

While many explanations link the name to the fact that retailers operate at a loss or “in the red” from January to November and Black Friday is the day their profits turn around (in the “black”), the name actually dates farther back than that. It began in Philadelphia, when it was used to describe the disruptive swarms of people hitting the streets in search of a bargain.


What is a doorbuster deal?

These are deals or products that are only available at certain times, such as when the doors open first thing in the morning. However, according to Mark LoCastro of DealNews, the majority of doorbuster deals will be available online at a similar (or even cheaper!) price.


Tips and tricks for Canadians on Black Friday

  • Do your research and compare. Use a site like finder to find all the deals in one place. You can compare options and find the best bargain for you.
  • Look for electronics. Traditionally, a lot of the great deals are electronics – think new TVs, laptops and phones.
  • Consider postage. If you’re holiday shopping, don’t forget to check how long delivery is for items. Black Friday should leave plenty of time for delivery before the holidays, but it’s best to make sure.
  • Check the currency. If you’re buying from a non-Canadian retailer, double check the currency. You might think you have a bargain only to find out the payment was in US dollars when your bank statement comes through.
