Do Black Friday deals offer consumers value for money?
Just one in 20 so-called Black Friday “deals” are cheaper during the shopping bonanza than at other times of the year, an investigation from Which? has found. Ahead of this year’s Black Friday on November 29, the consumer group said it had found “few genuine discounts” after monitoring sales pricing around the event last year. It tracked the prices of 83 products on sale on Black Friday last year – starting from six months before the day itself to six months afterwards.
