Meanwhile, a further 15% admit they will splash out between £600 – £2,000 on Black Friday, which this year falls on 27 November.
Among the big names getting in on the action are electrical giant AO.com, fashion site Very, and outdoor and tech specialists Halfords – with some offering as much as £300 in savings.
