Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. However, in recent years, there has been a decline in the popularity of this crazy day of spending. The reason for this change is that it is no longer a one-day event but a full-weekevent.
In recent years, retailers have started their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day. Therefore, the actual sales of this day do not really reflect the Black Friday event, as they are divided into several days.
On Outgo, we obviously have incredible Black Friday and Cyber-Monday offers every year for the crazy weekend! But why not look at what stores in general will offer us this year at Black Friday?
Buy online or in store?
When stores sold their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day, they faced a reaction from consumers. To avoid backlash, more and more stores are transferring their sales online on Thanksgiving Day by keeping their physical stores closed.
As a result, Thanksgiving Day also appeared as another occasion when several stores start selling Black Friday. We hope that the trend will continue as most stores want to get a share of the consumer's portfolio.The
sooner they get the attention of buyers, the easier it will befor them to get consumers to spend holiday shopping money in their stores.
Look for the first leaks of information
Black Friday is a unique party because it's the only time retailers intentionally “steal” information from their competitors on this crazy day. The aim is to create hype and advertising among consumers. The first commercials are also broadcast on the Internet around Halloween. Be careful, however, to the buyer, sometimes the leaks are false and the prices or items listed are only fictitious.
Careful! Appointment Phishing
You should also be careful about scams and hackers who will ask you to provide them with your personal information before you receive the offer that you will never receive in the end, but perhaps other unpleasant surprises may arise.
So, if you are asked for information other than your email address for example, drop everything and try to get information about your future purchase in another way (since there is not just one site to which you can access a store or an item leak.)
Amazon: Expect incredible discounts
As the world's largest online retailer, Amazon will once again dominate Black Friday with discounts on everythingfrom the site's Music Service Unlimited to the new 2019 product line that has just been released. In fact, the new Ring Indoor Cam is already on sale, while other products like the upcoming Amazon Echo Buds could go on sale shortly after their debut.
As the war between smart devices rages, Amazon should offer interesting offers on Alexa Echo dot, Ring, Fire, Kidle, etc. We are waiting for Google to respond defensively to this offer with offers on Nest, Nest Camera, Nest Doorbell and Google Assistant.
WalMart: A Black Friday must-have
Amazon dominates the online world and that's a fact, but WalMart remains the undisputed king of Black Friday. This supermarket store even offers you the possibility to register online with your email address so you don't miss any of the developments on this event and the new last-minute price cuts. Among the offers that will be available, we may see discounts on PS4 consoles , Xbox One X and Apple Watch.
BestBuy: Electronics at low prices
Thanksgiving is on our doorstep and as we planned earlier, Black Friday offers at BestBuy will start long before the turkey is baked. So whether you're looking for the best offers for TV, Apple products or video game consoles, you're in the right place. Particularly low deals are expected on MacBrook and MacBook Air. iPads will also receive a generous discount.
Expect WalMart, BestBuy and Amazon to offer laptops, TVs and video games at the lowest prices of the year.
Apple Store: Online and in person
From iPhone 11 to the famous Surface Pro 7, we expect a flood of new devices in the coming weeks. Manufacturers tend to refresh their product lines several weeks before the holiday holidays in the hope of seducing buyers with new gadgets, including the 10.2-inch iPad, iPhone 11 & iPhone 11 Pro.
People in general are looking for deals on iPhone, Mac, iPad and other Apple devices. But don't expect Apple Store to offer big discounts, but operators like Rogers, Telus, Kodoo, Fido and stores like BestBuy will offer up to $300 in gift cards with iPhone.
Discount Tours at Air Canada, Sunwing & Air Transat
Not only do the airlines make discounts on electronic devices, but during this event you will also be able to take advantage of very interesting offers on flights departing from all over the world. Some airlines take advantage of Black Friday to offer you discounts that will certainly make you want to go on a trip.
With the holiday season coming fast, what could be better than a $200 discount on a flight to a hot destination for a well-deserved holiday in the sun? Leaks of information about upcoming balances are even available online.
Evenko, Tickets, Admission, Ticketmaster
A gift that is good enough for yourself or for a loved one is a pair of tickets for a Black Friday show. Whether it's circus, a concert or a humor show, it's hard to be wrong. That's why some online ticket sites offer very interesting discounts every year on Black Friday. Discounts are always very well kept secrets and rarely have leaks of information so it is very hard to know in advance what will come out of it but you can expect between 25% and 50% discount per ticket in general.
