Cape Town - On Friday November 24 South African bargain hunters will start queuing at the break of dawn; game faces on and shopping trolleys at the ready for the annual Black Friday sale.

Others will be hunched over their computers waiting for online sales to begin, having signed up for every alert and downloaded the apps of participating websites. 

Acording to John Manyike, head of financial education at Old Mutual, this year it will be easier to spend - or misspend - your money than ever before.   

“Every year this tradition evolves, more shops gets involved and the convenience of shopping just keeps getting easier with technology,” Manyike told Fin24. 

“Consumers no longer have to stand in queues to get deals on sale, they can access them online, while at work or home. Some retailers have even prompted consumers to download their store apps so that they are the first to be notified of deals.”
