Halloween is OVER. We are now focused on Thanksgiving. And we are only about three weeks away from the day after Thanksgiving…better known as BLACK FRIDAY.
The website DealNews.com posted a list debunking some of the biggest Black Friday myths…
#1. MYTH: BLACK FRIDAY IS THE BUSIEST SHOPPING DAY OF THE YEAR. It’s not. The Saturday before Christmas is always the busiest day. This year, that’s December 24th. Only 35% of people actually go shopping on Black Friday.
#2. 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.
#3. MYTH: BLACK FRIDAY IS THE BEST DAY TO GET A NEW TV. Moth of the time, you’re better off waiting until December…when brands unveil their new 2012 TV models and the old one get a bigger discount.
#4. MYTH: IF YOU’RE GOING TO SHOP ONLINE, WAIT FOR CYBER MONDAY. Since most retailers are offering their best Black Friday deals online, wait a few days until “Cyber Monday” will probably leave you with the scraps.
