What is Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States. It is commonly accepted as marking the official start of the Christmas shopping season (although retailers always try their best to encourage customers to shop for Christmas even earlier). This has been the case in the US for decades, although the term ‘Black Friday’ has only been commonly used since the start of the millennium.
Black Friday has been the busiest shopping day of the year in US for over 13 years. This includes both online and offline retail, where shops often slash prices, which have depicted images of mass hysteria in the media with deal-hungry shoppers!
Although originally isolated to the US, Black Friday has increasingly been gaining momentum in many other areas of the world year-on-year. Online shopping giants have now made it a very significant online shopping day in the United Kingdom and many other countries.
Cyber Monday is a term used by online retailers to encourage online shopping following the Thanksgiving and Black Friday. As online shopping is increasingly global, this particular date is of major significance to a large number of countries around the world.
Don’t be scammed on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fantastic times for online deals, this also, unfortunately, attracts scam-artists. If you are purchasing online during these dates, make sure to be extra careful about who you are giving your credit card details to. You need to act fast to get some hot deals, but make sure to take a minute or two to think through the following points:
- It’s better to shop from reputable websites OR sites that you trust and have used in the past.
- Check the website URL at the top of your browser when you are shopping? E.g. example.com – does it match the real website address? If this looks fishy then it may be an attempt by a scammer to clone the website and steal your details.
- Check to ensure that the site is secure. Many browsers show a ‘padlock’ icon next to the web address (On chrome this is a green padlock for a properly functioning security cert). Look for this before you enter your credit card details online.
- Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday present amazing deals, if the deal looks way too good to be true AND you haven’t heard of the website before, then it probably is too good to be true. Do some google searching of the website to check for its reputation and reviews. Although some very legitimate websites can often have bad reviews online, it’s easy to spot fraudulent operations based on scam warnings.
- If you are signing up for any ‘free samples’ or ‘free trials’ of anything online, then be sure to read all the terms and conditions properly. They may actually be signing you up to a subscription, which you will need to cancel or opt-out before the billing date.
- Do you have anti-virus installed on your computer? AVG is a great free antivirus for Windows. Malwarebytes is also a great free program that can remove many dangerous or unwanted malware from your computer.
These are all important points to keep in mind when conducting any shopping or business online, but you should be extra careful during busy periods as people’s guard may be down when searching for offers.
