Black Friday 2019 - 29th November 2019
Black Friday is fast approaching so we're kicking off our annual guide to all of the best deals and how to best spend your hard earn money over the busiest sales period of the year.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual sale that kicks off traditionally after Thanksgiving in the US. It has become a worldwide sales phenomenon that runs for up to a couple of weeks after and often a week or so before the actual day.
You can expect huge price cuts across almost every product imaginable and while there are some stores that have decided not to take part in the Black Friday sales, the majority - especially online - do so if you have any big purchases to make this is the time to do it.
Obviously not every price cut is a bargain and we're here to help.
When is Black Friday?
This year, Black Friday itself falls on 29th November and it's the 72 hours from midnight on that day that we expect the best offers. There is also 'Cyber Monday' which follows the weekend and then often a week or two of offers after the main event, but Black Friday itself is the day that'll likely have the best offers.
How can I make sure I'm saving real money?
This is what we're here for. There will be THOUSANDS of deals over the period but often some stores rise prices in the run-up to Black Friday to make their 'cuts' feel bigger.
We'll be curating the best offers we find online and posting them right here - we're already posting deals below - and we'll be providing information on whether the price we're posting at is the best price we've seen to help you judge just how much of a deal this is. Obviously we don't know the historical prices of every product that will be on offer but we'll do our best, AND if a product is listed then it's certain to be on or near the cheapest you can expect it to be.
We'll be increasing our Black Friday content over the next couple of months and will be launching our dedicated subject feeds so you can find the best deals on the things you're looking for. We'll also be working on buying guides to help you choose between similarly priced products where we can.
There are hundreds of sites posting Black Friday offers - why should I come to The Digital Fix?
There are many, many huge sites that have dominated Google in terms of SEO which means it gets harder and harder for us to make any money at any time of year - and Black Friday in particular gets harder and harder for us every year.
Without the money we make over Black Friday we wouldn't be able to afford to run the site - let alone work on bringing you more content and features. So while there are going to be lots of places to visit we would REALLY appreciate your help in buying products via our links.
Smaller websites really need your help - it's important to ensure a variety of independently published content continues to be available online and as fake news and large sites start to dominate with their own profit-making agendas its becoming rarer and rarer for small sites to continue to produce exciting original content. With your help over periods such as Black Friday and throughout the rest of the year we can ensure we're doing our tiny bit to help provide variety and an alternative source of opinions and facts.
Even if you don't use The Digital Fix and our links try supporting one of other small independent sites - it'll be appreciated a whole lot more.
Enough of this chatter! Where are the deals?
