As we reported back at the beginning of October Asda are not to take part in Black Friday this year.

A traditional massive shopping day in the US the kicks off the Christmas shopping period, it’s the Friday after thanksgiving in the US however the tradition just like Halloween has slowly crept over to the UK.

With some decent deals and some rather average deals, it’s ideal for businesses as they can create a massive amount of hype, free press coverage and tons of customers who are rushing to get a deal (regardless of if the products are A) actually any good or B) actually a good price.

What actually happened last year?

What do Asda have to say about it?

“The decision to step away from Black Friday is not about the event itself,” said Asda’s chief executive Andy Clarke.
“Over the last two years we’ve developed an organised, well-executed plan, but this year customers have told us loud and clear that they don’t want to be held hostage to a day or two of sales.”

Supposedly Asda are going to invest £26m in savings across the christmas shopping period, however with others reporting that last year was the biggest day/week of sales all year we can’t imagine everyone will follow them..

Our advice:

  • Write a list of items that you want to get at a decent price
  • Compare prices online NOW so you know what is actually a good price
  • Compare prices on (when we post them)
  • Wait until after Christmas, you might find the price dropping then…
  • Always think twice before buying ANYTHING!

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
