Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals

Black Friday – notoriously one of the biggest shopping events of the year – is nearly upon us. In the UK, it is estimated that a total of £9.42 billion will be spent over the course of the Black Friday weekend.

It’s followed by Cyber Monday, which began in 2005 by the US National Retail Federation as a day solely for online deals. However, as online shopping becomes more and more popular, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have since blurred together, making Thanksgiving weekend somewhat of a shopping (and saving) frenzy.

Black Friday is always the day after Thanksgiving. So, this year, it’ll be on Friday 26 November, with Cyber Monday happening just after the weekend on Monday 29 November.

This year, K-Bar and Hut 8 will be a gold mine of special offers! You’ll be able to enjoy ALL their regular deals. ALL. DAY. LONG!

On Black Friday you’ll be able to enjoy these deals both in person (at the till) and on the Order up! app. Whereas on Cyber Monday, you’ll only be able to enjoy these deals on the Order Up! app.
