Revealed: The travel stores participating in this year’s Black Friday
Get those credit cards ready, Black Friday is almost here!
Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days in the year in America – and Australia has quickly cottoned on to the event. Every year it seems that more and more stores get in on the shopping bonanza, and this year, a healthy handful of travel merchants have already started teasing us with their offerings.
This year's event is coming in quick and fast, landing this Friday 24 November. Depending on the shop, the sales can start running as early as now, though generally most don't go live until 9am Friday.
From there, sales can run until midnight Friday or continue throughout the weekend and into Monday. The sale period varies per store.
While not every store has revealed what they are offering for Black Friday yet, a few have.
