Just 1 in 7 Black Friday deals are genuine discounts
Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Once just American retail traditions, they've now become truly global. But before you log on and take advantage of the discounts, here’s a stat for you to keep in mind: only 1 in 7 Black Friday deals offer a genuine discount!
Crazy! That finding came out of the UK from product review website Which.co.uk. It certainly got us talking and looking deeper into the world of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today Darcy and Sascha ask - are the savings we find on Black Friday and Cyber Monday all that they’re cracked up to be? And are there any rules around advertising discounts and sales?
