Black Friday is an annual commercial day following American Thanksgiving. It’s not an official holiday, but California and some other states consider it “The Day After Thanksgiving” for government employees. It’s traditionally an American shopping custom, where people are able to buy products for great deals ahead of Christmas. It started around the early 1930s when it was considered the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Since then, other parts of the world such as the United Kingdom, Canada (whose citizens had to cross the border to take advantage of all the U.S. sales), and others have adopted the promotional celebration. Look out for a Black Friday 2016 beauty sale and sales on skin care products.
What is Cyber Monday? Cyber Monday—the only time Mondays are met with happiness—is the Monday following Thanksgiving and Black Friday. It’s the day that everyone is able to shop online for the best deals, after Thanksgiving and ahead of Christmas. The term was coined by Ellen Davis, senior vice president of the National Retail Federation, on November 28, 2005. Cyber Monday has brought in billions per year since it’s inception and has spread to several different countries. It was traditionally an American shopping celebration, but countries like Canada, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Germany, and Japan have all participated in the secular event. Make sure to keep searching terms such as “Cyber Monday 2016 makeup deals” and Cyber Monday 2016 amazon,” in order to stay on top of new deals.
Black Friday & Cyber Monday Tips
Before you enter the real-life shopping version of The Hunger Games, we thought we would arm you with some helpful tips for your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping sprees.
- Always do your research on any item before purchasing it. It’s tempting to buy things at face value, but sometimes the quality isn’t the greatest.
- It’s fine to be patient and wait for the sale to begin, but when the big day finally comes, you need to be quick or else you will lose out on the best deals. Some Black Friday deals start early, so make sure to stalk your desired retailer’s web site.
- Be sure to question the discount and use your Cyber Monday coupons if you can, as not all discounts are actually worth it.
- Bring a friend, because you may need someone to help you out on your search, plus it could be fun to have the company.
Remember to pay securely, whether online or in person, and be careful of the crowds, as they can get very chaotic.
