Looking for ASDA Black Friday deals? You’ve come to the right place. After a break, the retail giant is participating this year in Black Friday 2020. Here are the sort of discounts to expect from the supermarket retailer…
As you probably know, Black Friday is a shopping bonanza that hails from the US. It always falls on the Friday after America’s Thanksgiving weekend – so this year that’s Friday 27 November.
Black Friday is probably the year’s most exciting shopping sale event. You will find amazing offers from many stores and brands, including Argos and Tesco, with discounts on everything from clothes to TVs to garden tools.
Some retailers cut prices in the weeks or days before Black Friday, while others continue the sales into the weekend and on Cyber Monday (a period that’s called Cyber Week) but Black Friday is the day most retailers participate in, and it’s usually when you’ll find the most enticing sales. It’s the day most savvy shoppers prepare for and, because it falls in the last week of November, Black Friday is the ideal time to snap up some discounts on Christmas gifts.
If you’re shopping online, set your alarm for midnight so you can start browsing the deals as the go live on November 27 at 00:001. The best offers go quickly! If you prefer to visit the shops, be prepared for an early start, as many open at 6am. Just make sure you check what precautions and safety measures the store might be implementing this year because of coronavirus.
When do ASDA’s Black Friday deals go live?
Although ASDA was one of the first ever retail giants to bring the Black Friday tradition to British shores, it stopped partaking a few years ago. This was, in part, because its 2014 sales were so popular it resulted in shoppers fighting over goods.
Instead, ASDA offered discounts around the Christmas period, and also opted for lower sales year round, including 3-for-2-deals, and regular sales and offers at George at ASDA. This meant that they could sell clothes, baby items, toys, homeware and home accessories, kitchenware, electricals and garden goods for lower prices year round.
Then, in November 2018, it launched the Green Is The New Black sale, offering discounts once again. In 2019, Asda offered RollBack prices with in store and online discounts that included cut-price clothes, toys, homeware, kitchenware and technology.
This year, however, it looks likely that ASDA and George at ASDA will be taking part in Black Friday once more! So expect to see Black Friday back on in its stores and online. The Asda Black Friday deals will definitely be live on Black Friday. But there are no details yet about if the supermarket will offer deals in the week building up to Friday 27 November too. But we’ll keep you posted!
