- When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019? Black Friday 2019 is 29th November and Cyber Monday is the 2nd December 2019.
- What is Black Friday? It's the name traditionally given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving in the US, which has long been regarded as the first day of the Christmas shopping season, when retailers release many special offers.
It exploded in popularity as online shopping took off in the 2000s - Black Friday UK soon followed and now is a MASSIVE yearly event for many.
- What is Cyber Monday? The Monday following the US holiday of Thanksgiving also started being promoted by online retailers as a day for exceptional bargains in the 2000s. Cyber Monday followed suit and is usually one the busiest online days of the year, usually falling just after the last pay day for most before Christmas.

There is plenty that you can do ahead of time to make sure you are in tip-top shape for the big day
First, read these 10 pro tips and tricks to prepare for Black Friday and Cyber Monday
, which include setting a budget, tracking retailer offers and how to pay safely. Then...
- Decide what you want, and try to stick to it...
There will be so many offers around, that it is best to decide in advance what you actually want to buy, to avoid getting too caught up in the excitement and ending up with something that wasn't really on your wishlist. It's not a great deal if you don't actually want it!
- Do your research
Just because a price drops during Black Friday sale, this doesn't always make something a great deal. Some may not be a bargain they're made out to be...
Take your list of targets and search on hotukdeals to see what the best prices have been over the last few months. You can also try using funky website CamelCamelCamel which lets you search for price history on Amazon as a decent benchmark.
- Line up offers that will save you money, whatever you buy eg £10 off Amazon
£10 Amazon Voucher when using the Amazon app for the first time - £30 min spend
Free returns using Paypal, for up to £15 on for up to 12 returns per year, worldwide
- Weigh up the costs of warranties
For example: Retailer A, may offer a TV for £700 with a 1 year warranty but retailer B may over the same TV for £750 but with a 5 year warranty, £50 extra for an extra 4 years' peace of mind could be totally worth it.
Sort out the best way to pay for items from abroad
Some of the best deals come from websites based overseas, such as Chinese retailers like AliExpress or Amazon Germany.
If you want to take best advantage of these, it pays off to sort out a dedicated payment method which charges less or no fees. You can read all about these in our Fee-free foreign spend guide

Our predictions of Black Friday and Cyber Monday bargains
It is really difficult to accurately predict the deals we will see - we talk with retailers to get an idea about whether they'll be getting involved or not, but the details of specific products and prices aren't revealed until much closer to the time though.
However, based on what we have seen in previous years, we are happy to share the sort of areas we'd expect to see offers in, and some benchmarks for what good would look likeWhat Black Friday 2019 deals do we think will be popular?Games consoles - PS4, Xbox One S, Xbox One X and the Nintendo Switch & Switch
Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will be released around Christmas 2020
, expect some big discounts on the PlayStation 4 console & games this year, as it heads towards the end of its lifecycle (although don't worry, it'll be supported for quite some time yet)
Here are some we saw on Black Friday 2018, so this year they could be even stronger:- PS4 Slim 500GB Red Dead Redemption 2 or Black Ops 4 or Fifa 19 console + Doom + Hidden Agenda £199.85
- PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 controllers under £30
Microsoft and Nintendo won't want to miss out on the action, especially as new models of both the Xbox One (the All-Digital Edition) and Switch (the Lite version) have just launched. So we expect to see- Xbox One Consoles to drop under £150,
For the All Digital Edition Xbox to be heavily discounted
Offers on the Nintendo Switch Lite
following its launch, we reckon it could drop to £150 with one game
Deals on the popular new release games, with Call of duty: Modern Warfare
and FIFA 20
likely to hit the sub £32 markCurrys
made a promise on a lot of their items on Black Friday
last year, if the price goes lower on Black Friday they'd refund the difference - hopefully they'll do the same this year. Currys also had some strong offers like TASSIMO by Bosch Happy Coffee Machine - Various Colours for £29
usually joins in the Black Friday fun with a cracker - my prediction is a code with 15-20% off either selected sellers or sitewid

usually has big discounts on their Star gifts and the super popular Soap & Glory gift sets e.g Soap and Glory Bath-Time Black Friday Bundle for £40
also had some crazy offers, expect more of the same like offer stacks, codes and bundles.Super strong Sim only deals
and some super strong contract phone offers like last year when Fonehouse launched this beauty
and the Xiaomi Redmi 6A and Mi Band 3
from Three.Expect big toy offers
from the likes of Argos
like 3 for 2 toys and Smyths Toys
like £5 off £50 and £10 off £100 spends like last year
likely to have around the same discount as last year with an extra 30% off sale and non sale
with free delivery, expect Reebok
