Shop and save in the Black Friday sales
In Australia and all over the world, Black Friday 2020 falls on November 27. Although it’s traditionally a one-day-only sale event, many stores now begin the Black Friday fever a few days or even weeks in advance, with sales extending well beyond the weekend. In 2018, Amazon Australia launched a three day Black Friday sale at 12.01am on Black Friday; and in 2019, Apple’s Black Friday event ran for four days, starting the day before. Be sure to check out our Groupon Black Friday page for updates and sale previews - we’ll bring all the best deals together in one place, making it easy to plan ahead. If you’re looking to buy from your favourite international sites, do your research beforehand - check out the international shipping options in advance and make sure you’re on top of the time differences, so you can be the first on-site when sales start.
The top Black Friday deals from 2019 - and what to expect in 2020
Black Friday in Australia has become increasingly popular over the last few years. In 2019, we saw a mixture of targeted offers and across-the-board savings in Australian Black Friday sales. Discounted gift cards were a popular pick, especially with online department stores - both eBay and Apple offered gift cards at below their stated value. If it’s clothing or tech you’re interested in, you’re in luck - Myer and Dell offered some of the biggest price drops in the country last year. For Dell, the most dramatic discounts were found on monitors and accessories, with a whopping 40% off selected items. Myer offered 50% off a range of womenswear, menswear and home brands. Beauty lovers can expect to save big this year, too - in 2018, Myer had a “spend $150 and get 10% off” deal, and Sephora’s site-wide discount saw customers enjoy 15% off all items.

So, what is Black Friday and how Aussies can shop for the best deals? Black Friday is one of the most highly anticipated dates in the shopping calendar. This global phenomenon has its roots firmly in the US - falling on the Friday after Thanksgiving, it marks the start of the Christmas shopping period in America, and is the busiest shopping day of the year! Although the exact origins of the phrase ‘Black Friday’ are unclear, it became popular in the 1980s, and is now synonymous with the crazy queues and limited-time offers we know and love. Here in Australia, Black Friday’s popularity has grown every year since the first sales began popping up in 2011. This is thanks, in part, to international sites like Amazon and eBay, who launched Australian versions of international Black Friday sales. Although traditional brick-and-mortar retailers continue to offer discounts in this period, it’s primarily online sales that feature Down Under, so you can skip the queues and get ready to save from the comfort of your own home!
