Black Friday Facts Retailers Don't Want You To Know

In Britain, it's considered to be one of the biggest internet shopping days of the year, as retailers pack their websites with oodles of offers.

Cyber Monday Hero are posting Black Friday Beats Solo deals throughout the sales week.

Black Friday may have been initially American, but it has spread over the world in a matter of just a few years.

Only 36 percent of Pacific Northwest residents reported they are even somewhat likely to shop in-store on Black Friday this year, and almost half (43 percent) indicated they were very unlikely to shop at all. A participant in the Amazon Associates affiliate program, links provided by Black Friday Dealer to Amazon.com enable them to earn income. They then collate this data into price comparison tables allowing shoppers to pick out the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. However, he did tell me that many companies send shipments for this now holiday in retail, but aside from new shipments, stores are trying to get rid of as much as possible.


No worries-Consumer Reports has been tracking Black Friday deals for years, so we've got you covered.

If you only shop at one Black Friday sale, you will not regret hitting up H&M. Black Friday is also the day the many Americans begin their shopping (23 percent). Surely you've noticed. As is normal in these parts immediately following Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween is the sudden overnight arrival of Christmas items and decor in stores and on store shelves everywhere. Online purchasing also offers an entry for those working a phishing scam, which is when emails made to look official seek confidential information or load malware onto a target computer. Black Friday hours will vary by location. This means many people have to spend their nights camping out on sidewalks to get to the good deals and many employees must spend their holiday night prepping for the influx of consumers. As always, you can find the complete Thursday and/or Friday hours for every store on our Black Friday Store Hours for 2017 page. You may even want to ask yourself if you really need the item. Unofficially, Black Friday marked the beginning of the holiday shopping season to our south.

If you're a savvy shopper and like to price match products, beware of some retailers who won't do that, such as Wal-Mart. It is a day when online retailers offer special discounts on merchandise. To protect you on Black Friday, the BBB advises consumers to not believe all they see or hear without doing their own research. Check forums where people discuss retailers and customer experiences to ensure you don't get caught out.

Alternatively, you can use sites like Pinterest to create secret boards and fill them with visual gift ideas. Make sure that you double-check shipping policy before you finalize any deal.
