When Black Friday arrived in the United Kingdom five years ago, the promise of a bargain led to scuffles as shoppers scrambled to pick up deals.

Amazon didn't say when the promotion would end but described its duration as "limited". The minimum amount to qualify for free shipping has dropped over the years, to $25 from a high of $49.

Since then, the sales day has grown year on year, although much of the shopping is now done online thanks largely to the rise of the smartphone.
