Re: Black Friday TV and broadband deals

Black Friday deals are available to current customers.

Posted on the billing forum but just called up and got Full House TV + 350 Fibre for £55/mo - I consider that a good deal.

Re: Black Friday TV and broadband deals

So why does Black Friday last a couple of weeks? A commercial con ? Surely not if it orignates from the US !

Some items are not the bargains these companies try to make them out to be Mr K as they generally have been for sale at a lower price in the past..

Why does it last more than 1 day is the better question! I am off to the States tomorrow so I will do some first hand research on the auspicious day itself.

Quote from Retail Gazette:

A new investigation has revealed that nearly 90 per cent of Black Friday deals can be found at cheaper or same prices at other times of the year.

Consumer lobbyists at Which? based their investigation on last year’s Black Friday deals and warned shoppers to do their research before hitting the sales and to not feel pressured to buy something during the sales event.

Which? tracked the prices of 94 popular products, including TVs, cameras and fitness trackers, that were on offer over Black Friday 2017, from six months before until six months afterwards.

It found that an overwhelming majority – 87 per cent – of products were cheaper at other times of the year.

The investigation also analysed deals at leading retailers Currys PC World, Amazon, John Lewis and Argos, finding that 46 per cent of products on offer were sold for less in the six months after Black Friday.
A vastly over-hyped sale opportunty to shift old and slow moving stock.

There is some tech that I want (NAS and media server) but I'm prepared to wait for genuine bargains.

Only 46%? So you can put off the purchase for 6 months and chances are you still won't find it cheaper. Seems like a pretty good reason to buy today.
