Who’s up for some retail therapy? 11.11 has just breezed past us; and for those that didn’t manage to satisfy that shopping itch, not all is lost. Say hello to Black Friday, another day that’s dedicated to a mega shopping extravaganza!
Falling each year on the Friday following Thanksgiving (this year, it’s 27 November), Black Friday is heralded to be the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States. This is a tradition that has persevered since 1952 – think: heavily slashed prices, discounted bundle deals, and more. In fact, some stores even extend their sales to Cyber Monday, which falls on the Monday after Black Friday.
And with the festive season just around the corner, what better time is there to stock up on gifts for friends, family, and even yourself? Here’s a round-up of our favourite deals:
Beauty and fashion
Sephora’s getting the party started early with a massive sale happening from 26 to 27 November. Whether it be in-store or online, shoppers can enjoy 15% off all goods. A minimum spending of $150 will even get you 20% off all your items!
In addition, the first 200 shoppers at each retail store, as well as the first 500 shoppers online, will receive $20 worth of vouchers each day. This consists of $10 retail vouchers, and $10 vouchers to be used at their physical stores – eligible for those that cart out only after 10am on 26th November.
