The 2017 Black Friday Sales Are Here

It’s that time of the year where people collectively go crazy just to score a bargain! 

The global shopping phenomenon named Black Friday is taking place this November 24th. What started as a US tradition of going to the shops to trample total strangers in the hunt for a good deal while releasing the pent up stress of having to spend time with your relatives over Thanksgiving has quickly gone global with multiple countries picking up the sale frenzy day.

Australia and New Zealand have quickly jumped aboard the Black Friday bandwagon and many retailers are now offering insanely good deals so they don’t fall behind. Black Friday sales should start at 4pm AEDT on Friday (midnight US time), but many retailers are now offering week long sales. With online shopping becoming such a huge market, it’s no surprise Aussie stores have started up the tradition too in order to not lose too much business to overseas stores. 

Since Black Friday is still mainly a US tradition, Aussies regularly hit up the American sites anyway in the search for those huge sales. According to a survey by Finder.com.au, around 1 in 5 Australians are planning to hit up the Black Friday sales. “The severe price cuts that come with Black Friday have been known to send bargain hunters into chaotic shopping brawls overseas,” said Finder.com.au money expert Bessie Hassan. 

With Christmas coming up fast and December being regarded as the most expensive time of the year, the Black Friday sales are a great opportunity to save on Christmas shopping. 

If you’re looking to join in on the Black Friday sale craziness but the overseas retailer doesn’t shop to Australia, you can sign up for Australia Post’s ShopMate parcel forwarding service here.
