When does the Black Friday 2023 sale start?
Shoppers looking to save more may be wondering when Black Friday starts, and this year Black Friday falls on November 24.
The annual shopping bonanza always follows on from the Thanksgiving holiday in America, which is every fourth Thursday in November.
That means Black Friday is every fourth Friday in November.
Of course, although the shopping event started in America, it is now just as big in the UK.
Nowadays there are tens of thousands of brands and retailers taking part in the sale event, slashing prices on thousands of products ahead of the festive season.
While Black Friday falls on November 24 this year, some retailers launch their deals and discounts in advance of the sale day.
When does the Black Friday 2023 sale end?
When the Black Friday sale will end varies from retailer to retailer.
Cyber Monday is typically the last day of the Black Friday discounts, but in previous years the deals have continued long into December so you can bag even more bargains.
In the past, we have also seen advent calendars reduced well into December, even though you really should be cracking them open on December 1!
So if you are looking to bag a bargain and don’t mind playing catch up, there’s a chance you’ll find even more discounts on advent calendars as the weeks to Christmas creep closer.
However, doing so may mean you miss out on the advent calendar you were holding out for, as they sell out fast.

Will advent calendars be discounted during Black Friday this year?
Yes, we’ve already seen discounts rolling in across advent calendars.
In past years, we’ve seen massive savings across a wide range of advent calendars during the Black Friday sales, with savings on chocolate, beer, food, beauty and kids calendars, at all price points.
If you have your eye on a particular advent calendar it’s best to do some research ahead of the sale and check where it is being stocked and the current prices.
For popular advent calendars stocked at multiple retailers, bargain hunters are advised to shop around and compare prices to get the best deal.
We know advent calendars give you a huge saving compared to buying each item in the bundle individually, but shopping for the best advent calendars in the Black Friday sale makes for even bigger savings.

These can be good online destinations to head to when the discounts start to launch because of the massive selections to choose from.

Where to find discounted advent calendars
There are plenty of advent calendars to shop from numerous retailers, filled with treats like food, drinks, beauty, socks and toys.
Some of those advent calendars may be available to buy for less in the Black Friday sale, which can save you even more on your festive countdown.
It’s worth checking out the below websites to browse a whole host of discounted advent calendars.
We recommend heading to big online retailers that stock a variety of brands, such as Amazon, Boots, John Lewis, Selfridges and Look Fantastic, to secure your choice of advent calendar in the Black Friday sale.
It may also be worth shopping via the app of some retailers to bag extra discount codes to reduce the price of your advent calendar even more.
What advent calendars were in the Black Friday sale last year?
There were plenty of amazing deals across a range of advent calendars in 2022.
Highlights included savings on boozy calendars from Brewdog and discounts across several toy ones from Amazon.
Plus beauty retailers like Look Fantastic stock a whole host of beauty and grooming advent calendars, which were reduced even further in last year’s Black Friday sale.
Some of the sales on advent calendars saw bundles reduced by up to 50% (or even more) so if previous years are anything to go by, we expect plenty of big deals on advent calendars in this year’s Black Friday sale.
When is Cyber Monday 2023 and are advent calendar retailers taking part?
Cyber Monday is traditionally the online-only extension of Black Friday and follows Cyber Weekend, so falls the Monday after Black Friday.
This year Cyber Monday falls on November 27, but whether those deals will be extended after Cyber Monday and into December is subjective to each retailer, the product and the stock levels.
While most offers will run across the whole weekend, ending on Cyber Monday at midnight, some retailers do choose to release exclusive savings at different times.
It’s worth keeping an eye out for exclusive Cyber Monday savings or extra discounts, as shops make a last-ditch attempt to clear sale stock ahead of the festive season.
What are the best advent calendars for 2023?
There are plenty of advent calendars to choose from this year – it all depends on the kind of calendar you’re looking for.
We have expert guides on the best beauty advent calendars, the best wine advent calendars, the best tea calendars, and the classic best chocolate advent calendars.

Where can I buy beer advent calendars?
For beer fans, there are many beer advent calendars on the market this year, which include a range of bitters, stouts, IPAs and pale ales behind their doors.
We personally love the Brewdog Craft Beer Advent Calendar and Beerwulf Advent Calendar, which each include 24 drinks to sample this December.
Alternatively, Bier Company has a variety of beer advent calendars to shop, some of which have already been slashed in the Black Friday sale.
For more options, check out our selection of the best beer advent calendars, which also includes offerings from brands such as Beavertown, Not On The High Street and Menkind.
Where to buy a gin advent calendar?
Nothing’s better than a good G&T – and a gin advents calendar gives you an individual bottle of a different tipple to try every day in December.
So a gin advent calendar is a wonderful treat to buy for someone (or yourself!) and we’ve created a guide to the best gin advent calendars to help you pick a favourite.
This year we’re loving That Boutique-y Gin Company Advent Calendar, Twelve Days of Gin Advent Calendar, and Drinks by the Dram’s Premium Gin Advent Calendar.
Some more popular shopping destinations to snap up a G&T tipple advent calendar include Master of Malt, Virgin Wines, Waitrose, Craft Gin Club, and Amazon.
