It’s safe to say that South Africans have truly embraced the tradition of Black Friday, which is largely due to retailers blowing up our emails for the past week with their “This Hour Only” deals.

Shopping malls and online retailers are preparing for the madness as best they know how. This while many shop owners are still just getting to grips with the American holiday tradition.

But, what’s up with the name? “Black Friday” was coined by the old Philadelphia Police Department’s traffic squad. It was used to describe the Friday after ThanksGiving where traffic in ‘Center City’ would be at gridlock.

So, get your ‘Pre-Christmas’ on as we show you some of the biggest deals in South Africa. Remember, the early bird catches the worm –  and gets 80% off Christmas presents for their loved ones.

Be the “popular one” this Christmas as you are able to buy everyone (even your noisy neighbour) a present and still be able to survive the festive season.
