Black Friday FAQs
What is Black Friday?
The annual November event has its roots in mid-20th-century America, with retailers marking the start of the Christmas shopping season the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday has since evolved into a major international shopping event that typically runs from Friday right through to Monday (usually referred to as Cyber Monday). The name "Black Friday" comes from the idea that stores start making a profit (in the black) on this day, turning things around from being in debt (in the red). Now, it's a global shopping event, and at Waterford.com, we're all set to offer amazing discounts on our beautiful crystal products to make your Black Friday extra special.
What's the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are both major shopping days, but they differ in their nature. Black Friday traditionally takes place in physical stores the day after Thanksgiving but now online shopping has become more commonplace and popular than ever before.
On the other hand, Cyber Monday is an online-focused shopping day that occurs on the Monday following Thanksgiving. It's all about internet. While Black Friday often involves both physical and online sales, Cyber Monday is primarily centred around online retailers.
At Waterford.com, we make sure to offer fantastic promotions on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, providing our customers with the opportunity to enjoy our exquisite crystal products at exceptional prices.
