Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving and is the kickoff to the holiday shopping season. Merchants offer deep discounts on a wide variety of products in an effort to bait consumers into the stores. This year, Black Friday falls on Friday November 27th 2009.
Does it work? You bet! People will literally inflict injury (and sometimes cause death) to get “stuff”. It is like lemmings jumping off of a cliff; the urge is just too great!
Black Friday is an event to monitor; especially if you are a techie. Deals on computers, monitors, media, software, peripherals, etc. can be had if you know where to look; which, leads me to introducing you to a website called BlackFriday.net .
BlackFriday.net provides early sneak peek previews to the Black Friday sales ads for over 80 different merchants; and is an excellent resource for planning your Black Friday strategy (to get your “stuff”).
As of the date of this blog post, BlackFriday.net already had posted ads for (9)-Nine merchants and we still have approximately 20 days yet to go. One thing to point out, is that even though Black Friday falls on Friday, many of the stores offer their Black Friday products for sale online on Thanksgiving morning. Oh, and don’t forget about Cyber Monday either…
