The annual shopping event has officially started and we're already seeing deals offering 50% off.

Anyone who shops will know all about the Black Friday sales. The infamous sale day inspires retailers across the globe to offer huge to discounts to shopper in the lead up to Christmas.

Originally an American shopping event, Black Friday's popularity in Australia has grown exponentially and is now bigger than ever. More Australian retailers (and Australian branches of international stores) than predicted are participating in the Black Friday sales. Plus the deals this year are even more competitive than last year.

Last year Missguided offered Australian shoppers a strong 40% off storewide but this year it's offering Australian a massive 50% off. Designer sunglasses brand, Sunday Somewhere gave customers the chance to save 40% last year but this year (just like Missguided) Sunday Somewhere has upped its deal to 50% off.

Similarly, deals are even bigger in the tech space. Microsoft offered $400 off Dell Inspiron 15 Signature edition last year, but this year Dell itself is offering laptops $500 cash off. Other amazing tech deals include 20% off Bose headphones and 50% off Xbox One accessories at Microsoft.
