The company chooses consumers What? speak: “In 2020, our investigation of Black Friday deals revealed 98% of the discounts advertised the previous year – including promotions on tech products, Popular home and personal care – for the same price or less for six months after the sale.

“And, while you can expect some products to drop in price over time, we’ve also found that 85% of items were the same or cheaper in the six months leading up to Black Friday.

“In fact, only 3 of the 119 products we track – ie 1% – are the cheapest on Black Friday.”

You should also be aware that there will be scammers trying to take advantage of Black Friday and they may steal your money and offer nothing in return.

So here are three ways to try and make sure your Black Friday tech deal is indeed real.

Check product prices on multiple websites

If you see something you want to buy, try checking prices on multiple sites.

You may be able to find some retailers selling the item for less.

You may even find out that the ‘deal’ price is very similar to the price of the item without the discount.

It’s best to spend a little more time researching your ‘deal’ to get the best deal for you.

Avoid ‘too good to be a real deal’ from sites you’ve never heard of

If a seemingly good deal is true, it usually is.

Scammers can jump on Black Friday and advertise fake deals on products they don’t have to make you part with your cash.

If you receive an odd email or text message about a deal from an unknown source, it’s best to ignore it.

The same goes for questionable social media posts about ‘cool’ tech deals.

Do your research on who is selling the product and whether or not they are legit.

Don’t be fooled by the “Already” price

A lot of deals use the words ‘Once’ and ‘Currently’ to draw your attention to a big sale.

What? Disclosure: “When we looked at special offers across major retailers during the first half of 2020, we noticed that some products were listed at lower prices for longer than their full ‘is’ price.”

That means you should buy certain products at a different time of year when there are no holidays approaching.
