Four Black Friday Lies Revealed

Halloween is over so now it’s time to focus on Thanksgiving and we’re only 28 days away from the day after Thanksgiving, better known as Black Friday.

And as you can imagine, there are a bunch of myths surrounding the biggest shopping day of the year. Here are four of my favorite:

Myth: Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. Sorry, but it’s not. The Saturday before Christmas is and always has been the busiest day. This year, that’s December 24th. Only 35% of people actually go shopping on Black Friday.

Myth: You have to camp out in front of a store to get the best deals. Yeah, maybe to get a few of the most ridiculous deals you have to camp out. But every year, more and more stores offer their Black Friday sales online as well.

Myth: Black Friday is the best day to get a new TV. Most of the time, you’re better off waiting until December because that’s when brands unveil their new models and the old ones get a bigger discount.

If you’re going to shop online, wait for Cyber Monday. Since most retailers are offering their best Black Friday deals online, waiting a few days until “Cyber Monday” will probably just leave you with the scraps.
