LONDON – 5th November, 2019 – Amazon.co.uk is set to launch its biggest ever Black Friday Sale from 22nd November until Black Friday on the 29th November, saving customers millions of pounds across eight days of deals.
Amazon first introduced Black Friday to the UK in 2010, with the aim of giving customers great savings on the products they want at a time of year they need it most. Since the deals event landed in the UK nine years ago, Amazon customers have saved millions of pounds each year ahead of the festive period and Amazon’s tenth Black Friday sale is set to be the biggest yet.
The Amazon.co.uk Black Friday sale will be open from 00:01 on Friday 22nd until 23:59 on Friday 29th November with tens of thousands of deals available to customers. The one-stop deals destination will offer new ‘Deals of the Day’ every day across the site and will be home to more great offers than ever.
There will also be thousands of ‘Lightning Deals' – products available at a discount, in limited quantities, for a short period of time – with new deals becoming available as often as every five minutes.
“We know how important it is to help our customers save money where they can at this time of year, so we’re excited to be launching our tenth Black Friday Sale to UK customers in the lead-up to the festive season,” said Doug Gurr, VP, UK Country Manager at Amazon.co.uk “With new deals announced every day across eight days, savvy shoppers will be able to discover great deals on a huge range of products and stock up on everything they need to make the most of their celebrations.”
In 2018, customers purchased over 2 million items on site, saving nearly £40 million on epic deals on the day alone. Some of the most popular sale items included Echo Dot (3rd Gen), Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, LEGO Marvel Avengers and Waterpik Professional Water Flosser.Amazon's Home of Black Friday customer experience in London
