Black Friday traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season. Many stores offer highly promoted sales at discounted prices and often open early, sometimes as early as midnight on the 25th or even a few days before.
Top Tip: Browse the stores for the items that you love, register for an account using your MyUniversalShop address, add them to your cart, don’t check out but sit back and wait. If the Online Retailer has a special, they will send you a notification of the discount that you can expect.
