Black Friday: A quick history

Just days to go and millions of consumers are putting the finishing touches to their Black Friday battle plans and preparing for the shopping bonanza that will see them save hundreds just in time for Christmas.

With high street brands and online retailers getting in on the action, discount voucher companies are offering consumers the chance to save even more on the treats that they get excited about all year long.

From midnight on Friday 25 November to 28 November, BuyaGift.com is offering 25% off the website using the code BLACKPR25 at the checkout.
Wowcher has joined the likes of Amazon and Argos, who have kicked off the festivities a little early this year, with deals already available on online. The discounts will be available for the full four days.

Wowcher's marketing analyst, Sam Eley, told IBTimes UK: "We try to have great deals all year round at Wowcher. You should see some extra-special deals around the Black Friday period, some of which are live now, and some that will be going live on the day. Check Wowcher every day to see what new deals we have in store."
