Black Friday ‘all hype’ with ‘few genuine discounts’


When we look at the two week period that surrounds the actual Black Friday - including the sale prices the week before and after - Which one? found that three quarters (74%) of products were cheaper or at the same price in the next six months. To fully capitalize on this day, retailers offer an abundance of deals and specials, hoping to kick off the holiday shopping season with a good start.

Retailers hit back at the report, with Amazon saying: "Our Black Friday sale is about thousands of deals on a huge selection of products from every category across the site, at a time of year when we know saving money is important to our customers". Best Buy is also offering $100 off the brand-new 16-inch MacBook Pro now as well (if you're a member of the My Best Buy program, which is free to join).

You don't need to trade in your old phone to get the offer, but if you do you can save up to another $250 depending on the phone and condition (an iPhone 8 Plus 256GB or newer will get $250).

On Thanksgiving Day, all Walgreens locations will be open their regular hours. Unlocked iPhone smartphones are also available from network providers and retail giants Walmart and Amazon.
