Although Canadians enjoyed their turkey dinners more than 6 weeks ago, they are as excited as their Southern neighbors about Black Friday. But how do you find that perfect deal for you or a loved one? The news agency Global News warns shoppers that many retailers are using pricing tricks to lure in shoppers with “discounted” prices that are in fact the product’s original price.
So how do you make sure you don’t get tricked and instead you get the sweetest shopping treat of them all?
First, keep an eye on the products you plan on purchasing at a discount for weeks leading up to Black Friday. You can easily monitor the price changes on the retailer website,and you know if the Black Friday pricing are a good deal or not.
Secondly, always window-shop at multiple retailers! The same product may be sold at a great “non-Black Friday” discount somewhere else, so if the deal is good, get it!
Finally, look for smaller retailers/brands. They treat their fans to exclusive deals during the Holidays, so sign-up to those newsletters for updates.
We did some research and found the hottest Black Friday deals in Canada for you!
