Black Friday Deals - all they're cracked up to be?
In all the hype around Black Friday, figuring out whether the discount is a good buy or not can be tricky. Which? recently published research showing that out of 178 deals publicised on Black Friday in 2015, only 90 were actually cheaper than they had been before the sale day. Retailers from Currys to Amazon all mark their Black Friday deals with magnificent-sounding price cuts, but they are only really useful if you know what price they were before the sale started. The good news is that for Amazon there’s a quick and easy way to work out whether a deal really is a steal. CamelCamelCamel – odd name, great site – logs the price of products on Amazon over time, so you can see historical prices and whether that “50% off” is the cheapest it has ever been.
