When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
This year, Black Friday will be held Friday 29 November in stores and online, while Cyber Monday is more of an online-only event, which will be held the following Monday, on 2 December.

In reality, the bargains can begin up to a week before Black Friday and carry on until the first week of December.
