Black Friday deals not such a bargain after all

Black Friday deals not such a bargain after all

Shyanne Belzer/MDN The Dakota Square Mall will be a closed on Thanksgiving Day, though Target and JCPenny will both open later in the evening for early Black Friday shopping.

Experts say that instead of choosing which day is better for shopping overall, consumers should consider each item on their shopping list on a case-by-case basis to find the best deals on individual items.

It looks like Apple is planning to offer a set of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales later this week, running from November 23rd to November 26th.

The store will reopen for Black Friday at 7 a.m.

Black Friday "deals" are cheaper or the same price at other times and shoppers could save by delaying their purchases, research suggests.

Best Buy will be open for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.

"While retailers are bombarding us with promises of great discounts and time-limited sales, it's clear that not all deals are as good as they might appear", she added.

Yet the price listed on Amazon for the TV was nearly £50 below that figure on at least 62 occasions after Black Friday. Now in the last few years, many open with Black Friday deals in the evening of the Thanksgiving holiday. It reopens at 5 a.m. on Friday to welcome the influx of Black Friday shoppers.

Should I buy on Black Friday?

Other outside access stores, like Barnes and Noble and Scheels, will remain closed. In fact, it was £50 cheaper on at least 62 occasions after Black Friday and even dropped a further £150 for at least four days at the end of December and beginning of January.

A Sony Cybershot Superzoom compact camera was advertised as £189 with a claimed saving of £10 on Black Friday by Currys PC World. It was also £10 or more cheaper at least 43 times in the six months following Black Friday, including on 33 days between December and January. This means that when competitors run promotions its prices are lowered to match them.

DeWalt is another big brand at Acme Tools, and they show some impressive DeWalt Black Black Friday deals.

Currys PC World told us that it offers great value on products throughout the year, and offers customers pricing transparency by stating in all channels exactly when a product was available for a higher price.
