Black Friday falls on the day following Thanksgiving in the United States. In recent years it has become the biggest discount shopping day in the world. This year the sale falls on 24 November, and in Singapore you can expect to find more deals than ever before!
From stores and shopping centres to websites, retailers in Singapore will be offering big discounts across a range of products and categories. All the best deals, voucher codes and flash sales will be listed here, and you can follow these tips to make the most of your money this Christmas season.
The event falls after the fourth Thursday in November, when people have finished celebrating the family-oriented festival of Thanksgiving. The Friday immediately after Thanksgiving is the biggest bargain-hunting festival in the US, called Black Friday. Although the event initially emerged in the US during the 1960s, it has become very popular outside the US over the past few years.
During the sale, the US witnesses overcrowded sidewalks and traffic jams near downtown stores. Stores are mobbed from early morning to late night. Violence and traffic accidents have unfortunately become a part of the sale in recent years. Due to such events, it has gained a negative reputation in some areas, but retailers are determined to turn things around and make it into a pleasurable shopping day for customers. Although Singapore has not seen violence related to Black Friday, shopping online is one way to avoid the scramble for discounts in stores.
Black Friday in 2017 falls on 24th November. Many stores will begin their online discounts before the day, so check your favourite store websites to find out what time they will announce their deals. Some stores will operate longer opening hours on this day, opening early and closing late to deal with the increased number of customers.
Black Friday dates are not fixed and differ from one year to another one. Traditionally, it takes place on the first Friday following Thanksgiving day in the US.

Since Black Friday is such a massive sale, it can be hard to know where to begin the search for the best deals. Scouring through hundreds of stores to grab the best bargains is a tough job. But the online world has it all sorted for you. Whether you want to buy a gadget such as the latest smartphone, laptop, or DSLR camera, or a fashion quintessential, Singapore retailers are sure to have discounts on these products for Black Friday. In 2016, Orchard Road stores such as Robinsons, Courts and Sephora all had big discounts as part of this shopping event. Online retailers such as Zalora also took part in the event. We expect to see similar discounts this year, so plan your purchases and keep checking the website to find out where to get the best deals for your money.
Singaporean shoppers are some of the biggest fans of Black Friday in Asia, with Singaporeans leading the Southeast Asian countries in searching for the best deals online. Neighbouring countries Malaysia and Indonesia also take part in the event. Elsewhere in Asia, India is a big participant, but in China, Singles Day on 11th November is more popular for shopping discounts.
In the US, shoppers sometimes turn violent as they scramble to pick up the best deals in store. In Singapore the shopping is less frenzied, with some stores preferring to focus on Christmas sales events at this time of year rather than Black Friday. Singapore also has its annual Great Singapore Sale which falls during June to August. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t find good deals for Black Friday in Singapore. Recent years have seen more retailers using this event as an important retail day, especially for online stores.
