what’s wrong with black friday?
Isn’t Black Friday brilliant? Loads of cheap deals, a great time to get some christmas bargains. All good harmless shopping fun!
Or is it? Could there be another side to this seemingly harmless piece of consumer heaven? Mediweed investigates…
when is Black friday 2019?
Unless you’ve been living in Outer Space for the last month or so, you’ll know that Black Friday will be on 29th November, the Friday after Thanksgiving Day.
How did Black friday start?
The fourth Friday of November has traditionally been the first day of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and is the busiest shopping day of the year. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but many schools and employees have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off, giving a four day weekend and vastly increasing the number of potential shoppers.
With the growth of internet sales the custom spread and it is now a fixture in over 20 countries including Japan, Russia and Pakistan.
But it’s not all peace and harmony in the stores. The sheer volume of shoppers psyched up on promises of once in a lifetime offers has led to chaotic scenes and outbreaks of violence are common. Stampedes and shootings have plagued the day, causing at least four deaths and 56 injuries in the past five years.
Plus, many deeply indebted consumers find themselves unable to resist the amazing deals, spending their entire christmas budget on unecessary luxury items, which leads to a dangerous spiral of credit and debt.
50% off? INCREDIBLE!! But not all the offers are as incredible they seem. In fact, when consumer website Which investigated, they found that 87% of the Black Friday deal items investigated were available for the same price or cheaper at other times of the year.
Moral: if it seems to good to be true, it probably is….
So how can i find genuine discounts?
Which give some advice about finding genuine deals including checking the Black Friday price against various shops, using a price checker tool to check the price history of the item and being wary of ‘was prices’ or RRP comparisons which often exaggerate discounts.
