Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the entire year, and gamers are just a few of those eager to splash their cash on bargains when it rolls round.
According to TopCashback.co.uk, 49 per cent of UK consumers are waiting in anticipation for November 25th to arrive so they can finally buy Christmas presents or something they have been holding out for, or simply take advantage of some of the amazing deals on offer.
The cashback website reported that 27 per cent of people have been avoiding spending money on big ticket items since August so they can do so on Black Friday, while 20 per cent have been keeping their wallets closed since as long ago as April.
Adam Bullock, UK director of TopCashback.co.uk, said this day has already become “cemented in British culture”.
“It has become a highly anticipated shopping occasion with many people waiting for the time to come so they can snap up a bargain,” he stated.
Mr Bullock noted that many people choose to escape the chaos of high street shopping on this busy day by making their purchases online, for instance gamers could grab their guild ball tokens on the Art of War Studios website so they can add to their collection.
Those who do not manage to get what they want on Black Friday need not worry, as many retailers also keep deals going throughout the weekend till the end of Cyber Monday (November 28th), with heavy discounts available online on this day.
Last year, more than £3.3 billion was spent between Black Friday and Cyber Monday in Britain, with £1.1 billion worth of purchases made on the first shopping day alone.
