BLACK Friday is upon us.
The annual bargain bonanza has thrifty shoppers licking their lips with more deals on offer than ever before.
However, scenes of angry shoppers scrapping over low-cost TVs should hopefully be a thing of the past this year.
Instead of flocking to the nearest H&M or Zara, buyers are staying at home as Black Friday goes digital.
Online deals are tipped to be the big winner this year, with an estimated 65% of all Black Friday deals due to be done online.
In Spain, sales are expected to be up 24% today with the average Spaniard set to splash €220.
Christmas shopping is noted as the most common reason for Black Friday shoppers, with 67% of Spaniards using the November fire sale to fill their loved ones’ stockings.
