The month of November heralds the start of the Black Friday campaign where various brands give out discounts on their products. Some of these offers are so mouthwatering that at times it actually hurts to see them pass you by. However, this year worry not as Absa Bank has got you covered with their Buy Now Lipa Later product.

For those who may not know, Black Friday originated in the United States and is usually the Friday after their Thanksgiving holiday. The term “Black Friday” has an interesting history as it was apparently first used by the Police in the U.S back in 1951 to describe the crowds and traffic congestion accompanying the start of the Christmas shopping season. Over time the trend has caught on across the world with various businesses taking advantage of the day to boost their sales by giving out massive discounts.

In Kenya, the Black Friday phenomena has gained popularity which has seen some brands extend their Black Friday offers for a whole month. Some of the big brands which have already kicked off their Black Friday offering include.

 LG Electronics


The LG Black Friday campaign will be running for the entire month of November. Customers will get to enjoy discounts on a diverse selection of LG items which includes TV sets, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, and sound systems.



The supermarket chain has also announced a Black Friday promotion for the entire month of November. They are offering discounts of up to 50% on a few items with up to a 10% discount on electronics among others.



This Black Friday season, the e-commerce platform is offering discounts of up to 40% on TVs, 30% on appliances, phones, computing accessories and 50% on home, beauty products and clothes.
