‘Black Friday’ is a US retail phenomenon that Amazon.co.uk has been running in the UK since 2010. It follows the US national holiday of Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday every November, which sees retailers offering unprecedented discounts in time-limited deals, and is seen as a starting gun for the peak Christmas shopping period.
Over 1,000 Amazon deals in 2010 and 2011 included discounts of up to 80% on a range of products, from Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo Wii consoles for £50, to huge savings on Lego.
