The Lowdown on: Black Friday 2022
Getting the best discount or deal across the Christmas season can b etricky - especially with so many discounts and offers around. We look at the Black Friday predictions and map out what to look for and when.
Black Friday Deals and Holiday Discounts
Black Friday and Pre-Christmas sales can offer us all a way of getting a cheeky little discount on our Christmas shopping - or maybe even bigger purchases you were considering anyway.
Are the sales really worth it?
The short answer is they can be - IF you were going to make the purchase anyway. We couldn't press home enough that it really can be dangerous to let the sales guide your purchases. Just stop and think about what you want to buy for Christmas or what you might need (e.g. a replacement appliance or electrical item) in some cases now may be the time to buy - but only some cases!
The team at Money Saving Expert did some research into all the deals last year, and 54% of the time, items were cheapest on Black Friday and 25% of the time pre Christmas sales were cheaper. The rest were the same. So overall it can pay to shop around black friday and in the pre-Christmas sales. What
Here's a run down of everything you will want to know (we think!). These are predictions, which means they may not be be 100% right. Although these predictions in some cases have been made for 7-8 years in a row and have been right every year so we are looking at a decent 75% success rate!
