The fall is flying by, and winter is once again on our doorsteps, which can only mean one thing:
Preparations for Black Friday and Cyber Monday are well underway.
Whether setting your sights on a batch of Panama Geisha Coffee beans (a.k.a. Gesha coffee) or the latest bean-to-cup machine, there’s no better time of year to score a bargain. To help newcomers and experienced shoppers negotiate this year’s bargain bonanza, here’s a brief FAQ covering the basics of Black Friday deals (and Cyber Monday deals):
When Is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday always takes place on the first Friday after Thanksgiving. That means that this year, Black Friday will be on Friday, November 26. After which, Cyber Monday will follow on Saturday, November 27 and Monday, November 29.
Are These the Only Days Products Will Be On Sale?
Definitely not, in fact you may as well disregard the official dates entirely. Increasingly, retailers are expanding their Black Friday festivities into Black Weekend, Black Week or even Black Month. Or perhaps doing away with the titles entirely and just throwing out a load of incredible deals throughout the festive season.
When Is the Best Time To Shop For Black Friday Bargains?
As early as possible, and for two reasons. Firstly, retailers are kicking off their Black Friday sales earlier each year. Secondly, everything available with a healthy discount will be in very limited supply. This therefore means that by the time November 26 rolls around, most of the stuff you’d like to have purchased may already be sold out. Act early and bag the best of the bargains before being beaten to the punch.
Which Stores Offer the Best Black Friday Deals?
It depends entirely on what you have your eye on. If planning on treating yourself to a bag of Panama Geisha Coffee beans, we’ve got you covered. For pretty much everything else, the most popular retailers on Black Friday almost always tend to be big—box stores like Walmart, Target, Amazon, Best Buy and so on.
Is It Better To Shop Online Or In Store?
Truth is, the reason retailers offer such ludicrous discounts on certain products on Black Friday is simply to lure you into the store. Your actual chances of getting one of those 90% discounted flat screen TVs are practically zero. But once you’re in the store, you’re almost guaranteed to walk away with a basket full of things you might not actually need. If you ask us, shopping online really is the way to go.
Are Black Friday Sales Worth the Hype?
Last up, the answer to this question depends entirely on what you plan on buying and who you are buying from. Contrary to popular belief, deals and discounts on Black Friday are not always as good as they appear to be. They’re often similar or even lower in value to discounts offered at other times of year, though marketed in a way that makes them seem unbeatable. Before committing to any big purchase, be sure to check whether or not you really are getting good Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals.
