In what simultaneously felt like the shortest and longest year of life, we've almost made it to Cyber Monday...
Let's cut to the chase. You're on this article because you want to shop and you want to shop when there's a pretty impressive sale on, which is the perfect excuse if you ask us.
Black Friday and it's more recent counterpart, Cyber Monday, marks the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season in America, but because Irish and UK retailers don't want us spending all our hard-earned cash internationally, more and more brands are jumping on board, meaning cheaper Christmas - and personal - shopping for all.
Last year, 58% of the population took part in Black Friday sales with Black Friday Global discovering that the average Irish customer spent €300 on the sales.
So, on that note, here are all the shopping discounts worth knowing this Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
