What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a special day that started in the United States. It happens on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the fourth Thursday of November. This day kicks off the holiday shopping season for Christmas and New Year. Stores offer discounts on their products.
In the US, physical stores are usually open longer hours, and many customers flock to them when they open. In Brazil, Black Friday began in 2010, mainly online. Over the years, it became very popular, and both physical and online stores participated.
It’s a big day for shopping and a chance for stores to make a lot of money before the Christmas season. Shoppers are excited, too. A survey by Google found that 67% of Brazilians plan to shop during Black Friday in 2023.
When does Black Friday 2023 start?
In 2023, Black Friday is on November 24th. It’s always on the Friday of the fourth week of November, right after Thanksgiving in the United States.
But here’s the thing: while the official date is just Friday, the 24th, many stores start offering discounts a week before Black Friday, and some even have deals throughout November. They call this “Black November.” So, Black Friday isn’t just one day anymore; it’s one of the last chances to get stuff at lower prices.
How do offers work?
Black Friday is when you can get big discounts for 24 hours. The deals on this day are often better than what you find at other times, and there’s a broader range of stuff on sale.
Many online stores even have a countdown to Black Friday on their websites to get more people to visit and shop. But remember, the discounts only last until the end of Friday so that they can be really good.
After Black Friday, there’s also something called Cyber Monday on November 27th this year. It’s the Monday right after Black Friday, and it’s all about boosting online sales. But these days, it’s not just about Monday; it’s a chance for more sales and deals.
You can find discounts on all kinds of stuff during this time, like phones, appliances, games, accessories, and clothes. To make sure you get the best deals, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on prices in the days leading up to the event.
