No matter how much older I get, I cannot imagine myself ever being prepared for the coming of the colder seasons that herald the coming of the holidays. For many Americans this is the beginning the shopping season – when the best deals become available! This is usually when I start updating my electronics and this year is not going to be any different; I’m already looking forward to the Cyber Monday tv deals for 2015. It’s great that these deals have moved from the typical Black Friday madness as I absolutely refuse to ever go back into a brick and mortar ever again on Black Friday.
I love consumerism as much as the next shopper. What American doesn’t enjoy getting a great deal? We’re all shoppers by nature thanks to being raised in nation of advertising and we’ve got the money to spend. Usually I wait a couple of years before updating my electronics. This is the time of year to do it because you can find great brand name deals on sale. Often enough you’re more likely to find off brands that are tagged at even lower prices. Is it worth it? I’ve bought off brand electronics with no problems for several years now.
It’s true that this is the time of the year that the stores are working to get themselves back into the black; thus the name Black Friday for all intents and purposes. This could be taken to mean that the stores are going to do what they can to make a profit at the cost of the consumer but I like to believe the majority of the big named stores will offer legitimate deals. When it comes to electronics, it doesn’t take very much research on behalf of the shopper for them to decide whether or not they’re getting a good deal.
