Last year, more than a whopping £3 billion was spent over Black Friday weekend, that's a lot of shopping! Customers' hunger for deals led to the biggest day of shopping ever in the UK, both in-store and online.
However, inserting the word 'cheap' and 'discount' doesn't necessarily mean you're getting a bargain, and a lot of these deals are usually too good to be true. In fact, it's often a sneaky tactic companies use to compete for customers, especially on Black Friday.
With Christmas just around the corner, which is stressful enough, why put yourself through all that pressure on this chaotic day? Instead, bag yourself some free full-sized and sample products to pop in your Christmas stockings or give as gifts to your loved ones this year, without a spending a penny.
Cosmetics, perfumes, baby products, foodie treats, the list goes on!
