Where did Black Friday originate?

Black Friday is America’s most highly-anticipated sales event of the calendar, commencing after the US Thanksgiving holiday. With the sales come wow-worthy savings, just in time for Christmas festivities.

Although Black Friday started as a US-based shopping event, its celebrated popularity and success soon saw retailers all over the world joining in with this incredible annual sale.

The initial idea of Black Friday is widely regarded to have developed from the generalisation that retailers operate at a loss (or in the red) for almost the entire year – January to November – and this sales event sees the tables turn as profits increase (and businesses return to the black). While this is valid, the term “Black Friday” originally dates back to the disruption that ensued when hordes of people set out in search of a bargain in Philadelphia.


When do Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales end?

Black Friday sales are generally thought to end at the close of business on Friday. Yet, over the past couple of years more and more retailers have extended their sale periods to span the entire weekend, and it’s now common for Black Friday’s discounts to conclude at the end of the day on Cyber Monday.

However, not all stores extend their sales periods. If you have your eye on something in particular, it’s in your best interest to check when that deal is due to end to avoid the disappointment of missing out. Also, stock is usually limited and things tend to sell out more quickly so it’s advised you buy ASAP during the sales.


Tips and tricks for shopping during the Black Friday sales

When Black Friday arrives, here’s how to practice smarter shopping:

  • Subscribe to finder’s newsletter. Sign up to our newsletter by popping your email address in the subscription box below. That way all the exclusive info on the hottest Black Friday beauty deals will go straight to you.
  • Set yourself a budget and stick to it! Sales are designed to help you save, not rack up unnecessary debt. Do yourself a favour and work out your finances before commencing your sales shopping spree. And stick to it!!
  • Make a list. By shopping the sales without an end goal in mind, you’ll wind up getting yourself drawn into deals on products that you don’t really need. Clear out your makeup case and organise your bathroom cupboards and make a list of the products you really need or want. Then you’ll know exactly where to head first when the sales land.
  • Browse in advance. Spend some time seeing what beauty products your favourite retailers are currently stocking. You could even add the items you know you want to buy to your basket in preparation for a speedier checkout process on Black Friday. You’ll then also be able to check for any discounts that can be applied before processing your order on the day.
  • Do your research. There are so many retailers out there that stock the same cosmetic brands. Do yourself a favour and check the deals on offer at competing sites before processing your purchase. That way you can dodge any disappointment.
