One of the busiest shopping events of the year has kicked off with some major retailers kicking off their Black Friday sales.

Black Friday, which falls on Friday, is usually reserved for items with large tickets. Cyber ​​Monday, which usually has online deals on smaller devices, follows on November 30th.

This year, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) brought retailers BHG, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman and Metro together for the event.

Attractive vouchers totaling more than $ 130,000 will be up for grabs through SPH’s newspapers and online channels on Thursday and Friday.

Readers can redeem the vouchers in participating stores from Friday to Monday.

On Friday there will also be hourly updates via a live blog with Black Friday star purchases from these retailers.

At electronics and home appliance chain Gain City, Black Friday sales are spread across three events that started last Wednesday and will last through Friday.

Offers include a 14-inch Acer N4020 laptop for $ 299 (common price: $ 598) that comes preinstalled with Microsoft Office 365P. a Samsung 55-inch QLED smart TV (common price: $ 1,878) bundled with a Samsung Soundbar (common price: $ 1,199) for a special price of $ 2,279.50 (common price: $ 3,077); and a Toshiba 9 kg top loading washing machine for $ 549 (typical price: $ 749).
