Black Friday can be daunting, clearly the reason it has this name right?

Thinking about visiting your favourite stores for Black Friday, but the chaos is too much? Trust me, we know the feeling!

Black Friday is known for its crazy price cuts and chaotic scenes outside of stores. Most of you may not know the origin, I was also once guilty of just thinking it was for deals too. Actually, Black Friday is just the informal name given for the day after Thanksgiving. In America it is the kick off of their Christmas shopping season since 1952.

Black Friday is growing continually in popularity year on year (as you can probably tell by the endless emails you’re receiving).You may be shocked to know that over 101.7 million people braved the crowds that’s more than 74 million in 2015.

I simply want to help you find the best deals online to keep you smiling all through this season, I have made a great collection of deals to guide you towards the best savings.

It is worth noting before I get into the deals, that if you miss anything from Black Friday for whatever reason that may be then there is a continuation of this day known as Cyber Monday and takes place on the following Monday, the 26th November.

Firstly deals on phones, the big one everyone wants to know about. These are available at pretty much any stores from supermarket/grocery stores to technology stores. So keep an eye out for those deals near you.

Personally, I’m an iPhone advocate and have been for years, but if you’re an android lover then there are some deals on phones including LG and Samsung such as an LG V30 (128GB, Unlocked) for just $429.99 available at Amazon.

If like me, you are an iPhone fan! Here’s one interesting deal for you.

Target:

Get the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max and a free $250 Target gift card with activation. Activation must be done in store between Friday and Sunday and is only available for selected networks! Imagine how much you can get at Target for $250!
