Black Friday is the biggest sales day of the year. Retailers normally discount products by 50% or more. Making it the one day of the year that retailers are able to go from the red to the black, hence the name Black Friday.

So when is Black Friday this year? Well, it is always the day after Thanksgiving which would make it November 24, 2023.


Many stores used to open on Thanksgiving, from around 5PM til Midnight. But since the Pandemic, many stores have opted to remain closed on Thanksgiving, allowing their employees to be with their families, instead of at work with a bunch of crazy people trying to get those doorbuster deals. This year, very few stores will be open on Thanksgiving, mostly down to just grocery stores that will be open for a few hours for last-minute products you forgot to buy for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Black Friday deals start well before Black Friday

Now while Black Friday does officially start on November 24, 2023, that’s not when the deals will start. Typically, we will start to see deals starting on the Tuesday before, which would be November 21, 2023. And in the past, we’ve seen retailers hold big sales ahead of Black Friday, with a “Black Friday Price Guarantee”. Allowing you to start shopping earlier, without worrying about paying more for the products.

Don’t forget that Black Friday runs into Cyber Monday which will take place on November 27, 2023.

So there will be plenty of great deals that you can take advantage of.

Despite the recession, analysts are still expecting consumers to spend more this year than any other year before. Which has been the case for the last few decades, actually.
