Black Friday 2019: When? O ? How? We Tell You Everything!

Ideal time to do your Christmas shopping, BLACK FRIDAY is coming soon! A day of substantial discounts in the major stores, here is our little summary to prepare you as well as possible for this dark day…

What is Black Friday?

Traditional day of madness where people kill each other jostle each other in American supermarkets, Black Friday arrived in France 6 years ago Although it had a rather timid start in France, it is now an unmissable event and opportunity for some consumers. As the holiday season approaches, it’s the perfect time to make good deals and save money. The Black Friday, unlike the sales, is a short event: it takes place on the last Friday of November, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States and is mainly dedicated to high-tech products, household appliances and video games This year’s web and in-store discount day will take place on November 29th, but most e-commerce retailers will be offering offers from November 25th until December 2nd.

Comes with him on Cyber Monday, which takes place on the following Monday, December 2 this year, and also offers some great deals. Basically, this event is exclusively online, unlike Black Friday which initially takes place only in stores and then also on the internet.

A little anecdote to shine in society, do you know why this day is called “Black Friday” in French? When traders still reported their accounts by hand, they wrote down the day’s result in red pencil if the annual result was negative. If it was positive, they would record the day with a black pen. With the appearance of these very interesting promotions today, accounts were quickly going black, hence “Black” Friday.

Tips for a successful Black Friday

Before heating up your credit card and rushing onto a sale, here are a few tips:

  • Before Black Friday do some scouting and write down the prices to avoid unpleasant surprises on the day. Some dubious sites may sell an item at the same price as before the event, or inflate the starting price to make it look like a larger percentage discount.
  • Set a budget or list the products you want to buy beforehand to avoid compulsive buying and ending up in the red.
  • When you think you’re getting a good deal, check the offers for the same product at other e-merchants. You might come across a better offer!
