Shoppers are set for a retail frenzy today as thousands of retailers unleash their Black Friday deals in what has become one of the biggest days for spending of the year.

Experian-IMRG believes internet spending alone with hit £1.07billion – an increase of 32 per cent on last year and the first time online retail sales in the UK will have surpassed £1billion in just one day.

Black Friday is a US phenomenon – a day when retailers take part in discounting, which always follows Thanksgiving, which was on Thursday.

In the UK last year, shoppers turned up in their droves to get their hands on bargains, creating unforgettable images as shoppers fought each other over cut-price televisions and charging at shelves to get their hands on cut-price electricals.

You don't have to fight the crowds to get a bargain. Jump online and snap up bargains from your sofa

Meanwhile, many online retailers suffered from the sheer quantity of shoppers logging on, with websites crashing and some transactions not going through. This year, experts predict retailers will have boosted their technology so that it's able to cope.

So where are the best deals? We will bring you the pick of the best as soon as they can be revealed.

But don’t forget, a saving is not a saving if you weren’t going to buy an item in the first place.

It’s easy to get swept away in the frenzy – retailers will often deliberately create a ‘when it’s gone it’s gone’ atmosphere to encourage you to part with your cash – but it’s worth still shopping around and making sure that you are happy with your purchase before hitting ‘buy’ or handing over your credit card.

These discounts are rarely opportunities of a lifetime; some cynics suggest that it is a way for retailers to offload stock, or to lure you in so you'll do your Christmas shopping with them as well. 

Plus after Black Friday is Cyber Monday, then there are pre-Christmas sales, Boxing Day sales and January sales.
