E-tail giant Amazon is set to bring the ‘Black Friday’ sale day to the UK, in what was formerly a US only discount day following Thanksgiving.
On Monday November 22nd, Amazon will kick off ‘Black Friday Deals Week’ with over 200 discounts on a range of products including game consoles, TVs, Canon cameras, toys and Blue-ray movies.
“For many years, shoppers in the US have enjoyed massive savings on great products as a result of the 'Black Friday' phenomenon," said Amazon UK boss Brian McBride.
“Amazon is always looking to offer exceptional value for money, especially in the run up to Christmas, and will replicate that activity for the benefit of all customers here in the UK. There will be some fantastic savings on must-have items."
Game console discounts alone are likely to be attractive with Amazon promising over 60 per cent off Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox consoles. Sony TVs will also be sold at half price.
