There are only a few hours left until the ‘official’ start of Black Friday, the one day mega sale that allegedly puts the economy in the black for just one day as spending peaks. But you may have already noticed a few sales have already begun, Amazon, Tesco and Argos have already launched their Black Friday deals. It seems retailers are that keen to have our cash they’ve been dangling ‘Pre Black Friday’ deals in front of our noses for days.
Previous one day only Black Friday events have seen allsorts from punch ups over TVs, to consumers fighting with one and other. Perhaps the retail industry has learnt from previous mistakes and now almost everyone is getting in on the act earlier than the actual Friday.
Amazon was the first big retailer to launch its Black Friday deals which started on November 14th. Morrison’s also launched mega deals on wines beers and prosecco. EBay then began its campaign, as well as Argos, Tesco, Boots and Carphone Warehouse. To be honest most of the retailers have already launched their deals, so is the actual day now redundant?
Well in short the answer is no, as many retailers are promising new and improved deals and more ‘special offers’ on the actual day itself. Some stores are standing firm and have taken the opposite approach, refusing to reveal any deals or offers until the big day arrives. So where are the best deals now?
The Black Friday “price war” will make it a very unpredictable Christmas for retailers.
