Another year, another Black Friday! But as it’s starting to get normal, the traditional Black Friday “promotions” seem to start much earlier and actually last all month. But are promotions really serious?
In fact, I’ve been seeing Black Friday ads since October that don’t end up making much sense and are even boring for consumers … After all, not all promotions are gold! It is necessary to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Let’s see how
Black Friday 2021: don’t be fooled!
So, in case you didn’t know, in Europe, and in this particular case Portugal, Black Friday has nothing to do with what is happening in the United States, where prices are falling sharply and there is even a history of brawls and arrests due to it of the chaos this type of advertising can cause.
However, I don’t want to go so far as to say that Black Friday Portuguese is 100% fake. There are good discounts, you just have to find them.
At the end of the day, if you happen to be looking in one of the big national stores, you can find a 48-inch LG OLED TV for € 769 when the original price was “supposedly” € 1299. Sounds like a good discount, doesn’t it? Yes, but if you do a good search, you can find the exact same TV in other stores for € 679 or less … with the originally advertised price of € 799.
How do you separate the wheat from the chaff? Let’s see!
The answer is very simple, let’s use the platform’s price history KuantoKusta.ptto see how prices have changed and to find out what the best prices are for the product you want.
Interestingly, as you can see above, the average price of the product rose very strangely just before Black Friday.
So, everything is very simple, go to KuantoKusta.pt, search for the product and select the “Price History” option. Then look for the best deal on the same website, which of course lists a number of stores, almost all of which have different prices.
In addition to KuantoKusta, you can also visit the website of Decorationwho has a good price comparison tool, and if you are an Amazon fan then you should use the add-on Camel camel camel.
