What is Black Friday?

Updated November 2017

Black Friday has been recognised as a shopping phenomenon in the United States of America for decades. The day marks the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season for many, as it's around the last payday before Christmas. Many eager shoppers take the day off for an extended weekend of retail therapy. Major retailers recognise that this as an important time for their customers, and will run exclusive Black Friday promotions and sales with considerable discounts and offers.

The popularity of Black Friday grew, and Black Friday deals were soon not just in shopping malls and main streets - but spread to online shopping. The trend quickly picked up speed, and across the pond well-known retailers in the United Kingdom began to reward their Christmas shoppers with similar Black Friday style promotions.

In 2014 Black Friday fever well and truly hit the UK, and it has been a notable day for high street and online shopping ever since.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is on the fourth Friday of November - the Friday after the American holiday of Thanksgiving. For many this is the last payday before Christmas, and therefore a popular time for Christmas shopping.
The Iglu Cruise Black Friday sale is running over a few days, so keep an eye on the countdown to know how long you have left. Take note that certain cabins and dates book up fast - so if you are limited in your availability don't delay!

Who has Black Friday sales?

Most high-street retailers will now have some sort of Black Friday sale. Well-known brands such as John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, Argos, and Debenhams are likely to be involved. Brands with American connections like ASDA and Amazon have notably had Black Friday promotions in previous years.


Do Iglu Cruise have Black Friday sales?

Whether it’s treating yourself to a mini cruise, getting next year’s holiday booked and in the diary, or adding a few luxury extras to an existing booking, we believe that Black Friday is an excellent time to make hay while the sun shines. Here at Iglu Cruise we recognise Black Friday as an important time for you to tie up any loose ends before the Christmas season frenzy gets into full swing. Relax knowing that your next holiday is taken care of, before diving into the ribbons, wrapping paper, and mince pies that are just around the corner.



What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday became an online phenomenon when many web-based businesses reported it as being one of their busiest trading days. Many see this day as the internet’s equivalent of Black Friday. Established international online retailers, such as Amazon, are often heavily involved and have helped the trend to reach many countries the world over.

If you haven’t been able to find what you’re looking for on Black Friday, stand by for web shopping on Cyber Monday as the extravaganza continues online for many.


What is giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is simply a day of giving, and happens on the Tuesday immediately after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Many see this day as an excellent opportunity to give back to charities, local communities, or causes close to their hearts.

For Giving Tuesday 2016 Iglu Cruise donated to Mercy Ships. Read about our charity efforts in our latest blog.
