Summer is done and Autumn is settling in, which means Black Friday is getting closer and closer. Here are all the details for Black Friday 2024.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is always the Friday after US Thanksgiving, which means it will always be the fourth Friday in November.

In 2024, Black Friday will be on Friday 29 November.

That said, the past few years have seen retailers launch deals earlier and earlier. In fact, you can expect to see Black Friday deals appearing from late October to Early November.

What is Black Friday?

In the US, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, marking the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season. It was celebrated as the day retailers’ accounts went from being “in the red” to be being “in the black”.

However, its true origins seem to rise from Philadelphia in the 1960s. Police officers would call the Friday after Thanksgiving “Black Friday” because of the influx of tourists and the extra work it brought.

Today, it’s a global shopping phenomenon, renowned for its exceptional sales and discounts. It takes place in the weeks before Christmas, making it a great time to shop for the holiday season. It’s also the last big sale event before Boxing Day.

Where can you find the best Black Friday deals in Australia?

Australia’s top retailers, both online and in-store, participate in Black Friday. Expect major discounts from giants like JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Amazon, Kogan and more.

With so many retailers offering so many discounts, the team here at BTTR is here to help. We’ll be combing the online stores looking for the best deals and sharing them.

How to get the most from the Black Friday sales

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the sheer volume of sales on offer over the Black Friday sales period. That’s why we recommend you come up with a plan and stick to it.

  • Start early. Some retailers start their sales in the week leading up to Black Friday. Keep an eye out!
  • Do Your Research: Compare prices across different retailers to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  • Make a List: Avoid impulse buys by sticking to a shopping list.

What to shop for during the Black Friday sales

You will find discounts across pretty much every product category. But after years of tracking the best deals and monitoring top retailers, I’ve determined that these are the areas that you’ll find the biggest discounts:

  • Electronics: Expect significant discounts on items like TVs, laptops, and smartphones. The Nintendo Switch is always discounted, and it makes a fantastic Christmas gift.
  • Fashion: Many clothing and accessory retailers offer substantial markdowns.
  • Home and Kitchen: Appliances and home goods often see major price cuts. It could be the perfect time to buy an air conditioner before Summer.
  • Toys: I’ve seen some epic savings on toys like Lego or board games.

Online vs in-store shopping

While in-store shopping can offer the thrill of the hunt, online shopping provides the convenience of avoiding crowds.

Retailers usually have the same deals online and in-store, so think about what makes you more comfortable before deciding how to shop.

While in-store Black Friday shopping has never reached the same fanatic heights in Australia as in America, it’s still good to consider your personal safety by shopping online as well.

Black Friday is an excellent opportunity to snag great deals on a wide range of products. With our comprehensive guide to Black Friday sales in Australia, you’ll be well-prepared to make the most of this shopping event.
