Cyber Monday is synonymous with online shopping, characterized by a temporary wave of Cyber Monday deals on all manner of goods and services. By contrast, Black Friday has traditionally been about braving the High Street and fighting through crowds to get to the best Black Friday sales available.
In both instances, the range of products up for grabs at heavily discounted prices has diversified significantly over the years. Coffee-related gear is now available across a whole bunch of categories – everything from Panama geisha coffee beans (also known as Gesha coffee) to commercial-quality espresso machines.
But with each year that passes, the distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday becomes increasingly blurred. Traditional retail outlets now list a cavalcade of Cyber Monday deals, just as online retailers list Black Friday deals by the boatload.
In which case, why not do all of your Black Friday shopping online? Unless you’re really into the whole ceremony of fending off crowds of angry shoppers to get what you want, why not shop from home for a much more pleasant experience?
Here are five reasons why shopping online for Black Friday deals simply makes more sense:
Exceptions may apply in some corners of the world, but Black Friday sales for most people fall within one of the coldest and most miserable times of the year. It’s dark, cold and generally quite depressing outside, so why not shop from the comfort and warmth of your own home? If nothing else, your immune system will thank you!
More often than not, there are no major differences between the deals available in-store and those you can access online. If there’s a limited time discount on Panama Geisha coffee beans, it will probably be available via both purchase channels. It’s just that by shopping online, there’s a good chance you could beat your fellow shoppers to the punch.
Black Friday deals often have a habit of bringing out the worst in people. Physical fights over the last remaining TV in Wal-Mart or Costco have become a standard annual event. A regrettable aspect of the whole thing and (thankfully) one that can be easily avoided. Do yourself a favor and shop online, for the sake of your own health and safety.
Shopping online also brings the benefit of being able to open a bunch of browser windows and shop at several stores at the same time. This boosts your chances of scoring the best deals before they’re wiped out, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to compare prices and ensure you get the best possible deal.
Last but not least, you are also far more likely to make sensible purchase decisions when shopping online than in the chaos and frenzy of a crowded store. This means a lower risk of making numerous impulse purchases you had no intention of making, ensuring you only come out with what you actually wanted in the first place.
