“Customers still have until midnight to scoop up big savings on tens of thousands of items for the final day of our Black Friday shopping event, before Cyber Monday deals kick in from midnight tonight. Cyber Monday will offer customers some of the biggest savings for the year across all categories from electronics to fashion, toys, home, luxury beauty, books, active lifestyle and more.”

Ethical Zinc, a natural and reef safe, Australian sunscreen brand had its Black Friday sale exclusively on Amazon.
Giving Aussie bargain hunters 40 per cent off, Chris Silvestro, CEO of Ethical Zinc said, “Black Friday was our biggest sales day ever, and was an exciting way to introduce our product to new customers. Having our Black Friday sale exclusively on Amazon.com.au gave us the online foot traffic we needed to make the sale a success. Being in the sunscreen business, the lead up to Christmas and the start of summer is an important time for us, we have certainly kicked off well on Black Friday and it sets us up for a strong sales period in the coming months.”
“We’ve broken all of our sales records this month, carrying momentum from Black Friday we’re looking forward to thousands of Aussie families using our products to protect themselves and the environment this summer,” Silvestro continued.
