Welcome November! It is unbelievable how the time has flown this year! As the end of the year approaches the retail season is coming, and what dos that means? Sales, good deals and shopping! The first big sale day on the list is Black Friday which will be on November 24th, followed by Cyber Monday on November 27th. Mark these 2 days on the calendar and be ready for incredible promotions.
In previous years, Black Friday has been focused more on in-store discounts, but this year the forecast is that the online deals for Black Friday will be bigger and better than ever. This is also related to our shopping behaviour and preferences, we all like good deals but we don’t like to line-up for hours just to enter the stores and then pay for our items. Online shopping is way more convenient, so now businesses have realized that and this year there will be better deals online for Black Friday and of course for Cyber Monday.
Another awesome change we are expecting to see this year for the season, is related to the categories with better discounts. In past years, we have seen that the majority of items discounted or with better deals are electronics, mainly TV’s, some cellphones, home appliances, etc. It was very disappointing when you have waited for Black Friday to buy new clothes and accessories, but you couldn't find attractive discounts. Well, get ready because there will be an increase of good deals for apparel and accessories such as Black Friday backpacks this year!
Many stores have started to advertise some discounts earlier this year, but some great advice for you is to wait until one week prior to Black Friday since the best discounts will be released at this time and will go all the way until Cyber Monday. Another great tip to get the best deals is to be checking online, in the newspaper and social media frequently for coupons or special codes for discounts.
Think in advance about all of the things that you would like to buy, you can make a list and plan a budget that you can spend. This way you will better choose the deals you want to act on. Many people take advantage of the best deals to prepare for Christmas and buy some presents in advance for family and friends, which is a very smart decision by the way since you will avoid the craziness in shopping centers just before Christmas.
