Black Friday 2023 Shopping Guide for Software
It’s November. We’re entering the shopping spree. It’s just the first week of November, but Black Friday deals are already launching earlier than ever.
SoftwareKeep has kicked off the holiday shopping season with its Epic Black Friday Deals.
If you’re wondering how you go about this year’s Black Friday shopping, read this Black Friday shopping guide.
Why Is It Called Black Friday?
First, Black Friday often comes the day immediately after Thanksgiving.
The first known mention of the Black Friday shopping experience was in November 1951. At that time, the journal Factory Management and Maintenance used it to describe people calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving to get an extra day off work.
Also, US police used the phrases “Black Friday” and “Black Saturday” to describe the horrendous traffic at the beginning of the pre-Christmas shopping season.
Black Friday officially began in 1961 when the local government changed the shopping season to “Big Friday” and “Big Saturday.” And today, it’s a season everyone looks forward to.
However, though extremely widespread, Black Friday is not a federal holiday in the United States. So, expect no days off from work.
When is Black Friday 2023?
Friday, November 25, 2023
The official Black Friday date for this year is November 25, 2023. Black Friday is always the day after Thanksgiving. This year, it will be Friday the 25th.
The actual Black Friday date shifts every year, but the day of the week stays the same: it’s always the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Also, this is usually the Friday just before Cyber Monday, which will be November 29 this year.
So why the early Black Friday 2023 offers?
Well, at SoftwareKeep, we are giving you an option to start shopping early because we care. As more retailers start pushing earlier than ever Black Friday sales, we know you’ll be overwhelmed. But we don’t want you to.

Regardless of whether you’ll be flying solo or not, however, we do still have some tips to help score the best Black Friday deals:
Check-in early for Black Friday Deals.
Always check in early to see what’s on sale on Black Friday. We know it’s not a case of the ‘early bird gets the worm,’ but you can be lucky to get some flash sales. These sales are often available for a limited time and in limited quantities.
Also, many best deals from Black Friday will likely spill over into the weekend. So, it’s always worth keeping an eye after Black Friday - on Saturday and Sunday.
Know what you’re looking for
We recommend drawing up a basic shopping list or a list of requirements before Black Friday lands. For example, shortlist several options based on personal research if you're looking for school gifts. You’d want to buy Windows 11 or Microsoft Office Home and Student. If you want Anti-Virus software, you can add it too.
Be prepared to buy alternatives.
We also recommend keeping an open mind. You may have a crystal picture of the exact Windows 10 you want. But what if the Windows 10 Home 64 Bit is out of stock? You can check out Windows 10 Pro as an alternative.
If you want to bag the best Black Friday deals, you can choose the next best alternative or wait for Cyber Monday deals, which are not far away.
