By 12pm today, Nationwide customers had made 3.22 million transactions – 14 per cent higher than a typical Friday.

The number of purchases is 5 per cent higher than on Black Friday 2022 and 13 per cent higher than on the same day in 2021.

Mark Nalder, Director of Payment Strategy at Nationwide Building Society said: “Many people have spent the morning looking for Black Friday discounts. The number of purchases has been in line with what we predicted - up five per cent on last year and 14 per cent on what we see on a typical Friday. Historically the upcoming lunchtime period has been the peak time for spending as people search for bargains either online or on the high street during their break.”
