Just like the last day of term, 5 pm on a Friday and Christmas Day itself, the Black Friday weekend generates the same fervent excitement. As one of the biggest periods in the UK shopping calendar, the same can be said of Black Friday at Jack Wills, and this year is set to be bigger than ever before. Whether you’re looking for that perfect hoodie, a premium puffer jacket or a new pair of joggers, we’re not promising anything, but the chances are they’ll feature in our Black Friday weekend offers.

That Friday Feeling. Remember it isn’t just about Black Friday or Cyber Monday itself. Those hardened Jack-aholics among you will remember that we usually extend the offers for a few days either side of the weekend because, y’know, we’re great.
Be prepared. Although we’re not quite ready to reveal what will be included in our Black Friday weekend offer, you can prepare by making an account and filling your basket with your favourite items from our collection. This way, when we email you the go-ahead they’ll all be ready and waiting for you to check out – deals and all.
Be alarming. Set. An. Alarm. Like when you’re buying Glastonbury tickets or waiting for GBBO, setting alarms means you’re less likely to miss out. We find that 3 snoozes tend to do the trick.
Save on shipping. If you can’t find what you want in a store you can ask a member of our team to order it in for you for free. The same goes for shopping online, if your order reaches £60 or more we’ll deliver it to you free of charge. Another option for free shipping is to select Collect from Store at the check-out. That way, you can go into your selected store, try it on and walk away with it no costs attached.
Get social. Our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feed may include some exclusive daily deals. Head off to our channels to like and follow when we post about Black Friday, you never know we might make it worth your while. Plus, you can easily share our Black Friday gossip with your pals.
A no-budge budget. We’ll get real with you. We too have been known to get carried away, rent, food, the end of the term can be a tough time. However, Christmas is coming which means a few things. 1. Black Friday means you can save on your Christmas gift-giving – perfect. 2. You will be reimbursed by your favourite aunt – she’s a generous gal. 3. You can hibernate over the holidays – never underestimate the power of a fully stocked fridge – thanks Mum!
Honesty is the best policy. Speaking of policies, you can check out our exchange and returns policies in our Help Hub. It’s important to keep these in mind while you’re shopping, only because we want you to have the best time and would hate to disappoint you.
