Crowds are forming. Shoppers are foaming at the mouth. It’s time to get ready for another Black Friday, people!
Just don’t go into your post-Thanksgiving shopping blindly. Consumer website NerdWallet found that in 27 of this year’s Black Friday advertisements, 25 retailers listed at least one product for the exact same price as in their 2013 Black Friday ad. That means that 93 percent of retailers are repeating Black Friday products (and prices) from year to year!
However, there are deals to be had — plenty of them. You just have to plan wisely. After all, the National Retail Federation says that six in 10 (61.1 percent) consumers are planning to shop either Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday, which equates to more than 140.1 million unique shoppers. That’s a whole lot of people.
With so many deals and limbs flying around, Black Friday can be extremely confusing. How do you know if you’re getting a good deal? We’ve been combing through announcements, circulars and websites, to find the discounts that make it worth braving the crowds.
