Asda Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals 2018
Asda is one of Britain’s biggest supermarket chains, owned by Walmart. After 2014, the food chain withdrew from Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers after some videos hit the media showing the chaos inside a supermarket with people fighting to get one of the advertised TV deals. Initially, it was Asda which brought Black Friday to the UK.
Will there be Asda Black Friday deals in 2018?
After three years without Asda UK taking part in Black Friday, it is about time that they take part again in 2018. But the probability of this is low. A spokesperson of the food chain recently stated:
In 2015 we said that we were stepping away from Black Friday because, as much as we had developed a well organised and executed event the feedback from our customers was clear that they didn’t want the pressure of a ‘flash sale’ and preferred to know we were offering low prices throughout the festive season.
That’s not good news for Black Friday shoppers! As there was no change in the management at the supermarket chain since that statement, it’s unlikely that they will take part this year.
What about non-specific Black Friday deals at Asda UK?
Last year per example there were some incredible deals valid during the famous shopping event:
- 3-for-2 deals on a wide range of products from George
- 6-for-£25 deal on alcohol (wine, champagne, prosecco, …)
- RollBack sale on a wide range of products like toys, electricals, fashion and homeware
We don’t know yet what the supermarket chain’s deals will be during Black Friday / Cyber Monday 2018 but of course we hope for some great bargains.
Asda’s good old Black Friday days
In 2013, it was Asda which brought the American tradition of a Black Friday sale (and Cyber Monday promotions) to the UK. And in 2014, everyone talked about the now famous TV and electrical deals with heavy discounts. UK shoppers were fighting at several stores to get one of the desired bargains.
Unfortunately, these fights were too much of bad press for the food retailer. Who knows how Black Friday and Cyber Monday would be today without Asda.
