Black Friday: How to get the best deals

Will this Black Friday mark the death of the shopping mall?

We call this generation the Mall Age.

The most hyped retail event of the year is under way – and shoppers are being bombarded by promises of once-in-a-lifetime deals.

While there are some fantastic offers to be had, Black Friday deals are not always what they seem.

So how can shoppers avoid being ripped off, and what rights do you have if you are not happy with a purchase after the Black Friday dust has settled? Is always a big question in the mind of the buyers.

Perhaps most importantly, you should not simply assume that retailers save their biggest discounts for Black Friday. In previous years it has become apparent that not all discounts are as generous as they sound, with Which? finding that 60% of the items investigated were the same price or even cheaper earlier in the year.

“To get the best out of Black Friday, shoppers should do their research, form a plan and stick to it.”

Black Friday is well-named this year. The day after Thanksgiving, when shopping is supposed to kick into high gear, may instead sound the death knell for that great American institution of the mall.
