A Crash Course for First-Time Black Friday Shoppers

Black Friday shopping

Thanksgiving is here, and with it comes Black Friday. Whatever the reason, you've been absent from past installments of the shopping event. The Belk Black Friday 2017 ad has been released earlier this month. By driving more shoppers online through extended sales periods, total spending during Black Friday 2017 is on track to reach new heights.

"Of that 80, just six were marketed as Black Friday events, three mentioned that their Black Friday event was coming soon and five used the term to run associated, but not actual, Black Friday campaigns - such as 'the Black Friday warm-up...' or 'why wait for Black Friday...'". We've scoured the web to bring you the best Apple Black Friday deals from popular retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and more.

In our top 10 Amazon Black Friday 2017 deals we picked the best Black Friday 2017 deals only available in the Amazon Black Friday 2017 sale.

Most online retailers are running Black Friday promotions between Monday 20th November and Monday 27th November this year.

Everything you've heard about Black Friday is probably true.

Furthermore, numerous Black Friday items you'll see advertised at low prices are actually lower-quality versions of the products normally sold. A NerdWallet analysis confirms that this is indeed a common practice. Then in 2016 much of the Black Friday-specific marketing and sales activity was concentrated over the duration of a week, which is something IMRG anticipates will happen again this year. Black Friday is the best time to find deeply discounted items across a wide range of product categories including toys, electronics, video games, apparel, appliances and more.

Take a deep breath, focus on your list and try not to let the deals overwhelm you. We are covering Black Friday for over a decade and have never seen more online deals. In other words, the day virtually negates the meaning of Thanksgiving, and the only way to prevent that from happening is to make it about rest, relaxation, and digestive recovery - not shopping and scoring deals.

"Initially, we had Black Friday, which was the day after Thanksgiving when everybody did their shopping", says Christopher Newman, an assistant professor of marketing at the University of Mississippi. You'll preserve your budget, avoid taking on needless debt, and uphold the spirit the holiday season is actually meant to evoke.
