Technically Black Friday shouldn’t be until next week. But that’s not stopping retailers from pushing out sales labelled as early Black Friday deals in hopes of getting as much business as they can ahead of time since people are in a spending mood. But should you which is the question considering deals are still to come? A lot of companies actually just have a regular weekly sale as well while relying on the Black Friday buzz to generate more sales.
For myself this is where it comes in handy to actually know the price history of products and as well past deals. For example, I know a store called Shoppers Drug Mart here has an early black Friday sale this week. However, next week they will have a standard offer which is if you redeem 250,000 PC Points that will actually be worth $400 instead of $250. That’s a huge discount that is worth holding off.
The most important thing as always is to not just look how much of a discount the company is telling you its sales is offering you. Often the prices can be increased to make it sound like a better deal than it really is. If anything, whether or not you should buy anything now is like every other day in regards to whether or not you actually need it and if the deal is really too good to pass up.
