Black Friday 2020 Shopping Tips
Black Friday 2020 is fast approaching and there's so much hype about it you can almost hear it buzzing in the streets, like a hum of static noise in an old analogue radio. But what is Black Friday and why is everything so much cheaper that one day of the year? Black Friday is the start of the holiday shopping season in the US, quite literally the day after Thanksgiving. Traditionally, it has always been the day when, with all family commitments fulfilled, people head out to the shops and start getting some stuff either for themselves or, precisely, for the family, ahead of the Christmas season. But is Black Friday really all it's made out to be?
Are Black Friday Sales Worth It?
There is no simple answer to this question. Much has been written about the worthiness of the Black Friday concept in recent times, as the span of the special sales has increased from a single day to practically the whole month of November. Where once you had to deal with long queues and make sure you got to your favourite retailer extra early to make the most of the 24-hour sales, these days Black Friday leads on to Cyber Monday, which goes on for a week and sometimes even for a month. So the bigger question is, really, how best to profit from these amazing discounts. That's why we have prepared this guide to help you to shop cheaper and better during Black Friday.
When Black Friday starts on the 27 November, you should focus on your priorities for what you want to buy – that's what should dictate where you go shopping! So what is it that you want to get first? One way of going about Christmas shopping, for instance, is getting that awkward, hard gift out of the way early, before moving on to the fun stuff. Jewellery is a great option for an impersonal but impressive gift you can give just about anyone. Why not use a Clear Crystal Black Friday discount voucher and explore the many options they have on gifts for him and for her, from a whole 25 piece Swarovski advent calendar to a gents gift set including cufflinks, tie and money clip.
Another great source of gift solutions for that grumpy uncle who never likes anything would be visiting The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Black Friday deals for everything he needs to stay merry this Christmas. Have a browse through the huge selection of whiskey online including 28+-year-old whiskey or bottles that have come from as far as the Scottish Highlands! If you're feeling super generous, why not treat them to a membership which will give them access to exclusive Members’ Rooms, discounts in partner bars, invites to tasting events, whisky education and a subscription to Unfiltered magazine!
And what about giving your in-laws a hint and bringing them into the 21st Century with the new iPhone 12 series? With the fabulous Carphone Warehouse Black Friday offers, you'll no longer have to hold your phone at arm's length as a clamour of beeps and buzzes attacks your ear. Check out their 'gifts when you switch' campaign to further sweeten the deal with free items such as Apple AirPods and the Amazon Firestick! Whatever your fancy, this is an opportunity to make yourself some good by making someone else a great gift at the best price possible – which is precisely why Black Friday is good!
While on the subject of video-calling the in-laws, we have to mention these amazing Portal offers. No matter how far away you may have to be from family this holiday, Portal will bridge the gap between you. With Alexa built-in and a smart camera that automatically pans and zooms to keep up with the action, with a Portal device, you'll forget that they aren't actually in the room with you.
With all this talk of browsing and tech, be sure to stay safe while you surf with these Surfshark Black Friday discount codes.
Why Is Everything so Cheap on Black Friday?
Well, the answer to this question is quite simple: the cheaper you sell goods, the more of them you sell. That's the ultimate explanation of how Black Friday started. Some say it was brought about by the Thanksgiving celebrations when you'd see your family for the first time in a while and remember you'd have to buy them a gift for Christmas. Others say it's all the contrary, after all these family commitments comes the need to go and splash some money on yourself, but whatever the order of the factors, the end result is that this is a day when consumerism is at a collective high, so giving people what they want, ie a good deal, made pretty good sense.
