Although this season of offers is carried out abroad, there are some companies that have recently adopted it in our country
November 26 is the date on which Black Friday 2021 will be celebrated . A world-wide event in which the main stores and e-commerce platforms are involved . This tradition inherited from the United States is already a consolidated date in Spain and serves, in many cases, to save on Christmas purchases and benefit from significant discounts.
In recent years, and especially after the pandemic, a large volume of transactions has moved to the internet. These days online establishments offer all kinds of advantages so that buyers can receive their orders at home for free. The repayment periods until after Christmas also increase. According to a study prepared by Webloyalty, the most demanded products on Black Friday 2021 will be technology and electronic items (mobile phones, computers or tablets) followed by beauty and lifestyle products. This same study foresees that the average expenditure of Spaniards will increase by 20% compared to the previous year, reaching up to 180 euros.
The first thing that must be taken into account as a consumer, as recalled by the OCU , is that "in electronic commerce the same regulations must be complied with as in physical stores." In this way, as when going to an establishment in person, when we buy online we must keep the ticket to make possible changes and be aware of the return policies that apply.
If what we want is to know if we are accessing a good offer, we can use a price comparator or apps and extensions for the browser (such as Keepa ) that analyze the historical evolution of a specific article. To avoid possible fraud, it is important to spend a few minutes to verify that we are on a reliable page and with secure payment gateways (it is usually indicated with a padlock in the address of the web page). In addition, in online purchases , it is usually a good option to use services such as Paypal or use prepaid cards.
From the financial comparator HelpMyCash they also recommend looking for references and opinions about the trade in question if we do not know it. "Most likely," they say, "is that, if the website is fraudulent, other people have written reviews about it." They also advise distrust of overly attractive offers: “In cases like these, it is advisable to compare the prices offered by other businesses. If the price offered by a particular store is too low, do not rule out the possibility that it is a scam. Another possibility is that it is an imitation product or that it is reconditioned ”, they point out.
On this occasion, in addition, it remains to be seen how the supply crisis and the lack of containers for maritime transport may affect it . Logistics associations such as UNO indicate that the sector has been planning for “months” for these dates, but it may happen that many users decide this year to advance their Christmas purchases and thus ensure shipments.
In order not to miss anything, in EL PAÍS Escaparate we will carry out a special coverage in which we will send our readers the most attractive discounts . In addition, on November 26 we will monitor live, minute by minute, the best deals on Black Friday 2021.
In case you had some purchases left pending during El Buen Fin , don't worry! Because Black Friday has arrived , a commercial practice with significant discounts that, despite not having the same roots in Mexico as in the United States (place of origin), will also be held in our country and we will tell you which stores will participate.
As is customary, the famous Black Friday is celebrated after Thanksgiving in the US , in which several stores decide to open inventory to offer different discounts and product auctions.
Although this party to inaugurate the Christmas shopping season takes place mainly abroad, there are some companies that have recently adopted it in Mexico and that take advantage of that day to launch new promotions, as well as to generate and increase their profits, and of step, finish off the stale merchandise.
For this edition, Black Friday 2021 takes place this Friday, November 26 , although in some stores, the offers will begin on the same Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 25), mainly on the store's websites , for what we suggest to consult what campaign the establishment that interests you is planning.
