JB HI-FI revealed some stores will also be open until 10pm on Black Friday, so shoppers can take advantage of the deals in person.

For those who can’t make it, some deals even include free delivery. There won’t be any rain checks offered on prices, so you’ll have to get in while stocks last.

Black Friday scams

While it’s easy to get swept up in the hype of huge online sales, Aussies are reminded to shop carefully, and not click any suspicious links.

Scamwatch revealed that losses from online shopping tricks have increased by a whopping 42 per cent, and Black Friday and Cyber Monday present perfect opportunities for cyber criminals to strike.

“Watch out for popular products being sold at prices much lower than on other websites and sellers requesting payment through direct bank transfer or cryptocurrency,” Australian Competition and Consumer Commision deputy chair Delia Rickard said.

“Take the time to consider who you are dealing with and don’t be pressured by special offers.

“Do your research by checking independent reviews of online stores or the seller’s history on classified websites.”
