Black Friday is celebrated in the US, a day after Thanksgiving. This year, Black Friday is on November 26. Cyber Monday, on the other hand, is set to be on November 29.
How can I get Black Friday deals in India?
Black Friday Sale isn't a big shopping event in India as the festive season in our country begins much earlier around Dussehra. However, e-retailers like Flipkart and Amazon offer their own version of the Black Friday deals in India to match up with the enthusiasm in the West.
In addition to that, interested buyers can also benefit from the ongoing Black Friday 2021 deals in India. Major e-retailers like Amazon ship their products internationally. So, instead of shopping from Amazon India, interested buyers can shop from Amazon's US-based platform to get Black Friday 2021 deals. However, they will have to check if their selected products are eligible for global shipping.
In addition to that, interested buyers can also use a third-party shipping service that can courier the product directly to India. In doing so, buyers may have to pay a shipping fee and customs duties as applicable on their purchased products.
