A lot of people were waiting for it and it is finally here. The Black Friday has arrived. If you are reading this you probably know what this day is about. As a tradition, small, medium and especially big businesses, offer very specific offers to the customers in order to anticipate all the Christmas shopping activities.

A lot of people really take advantage of this day and they buy all the presents now. In this way, you can avoid the stress, last minute rush and, most important, crowded places in this period.

On the other hand, it is also a good opportunity for another kind of customers. Those who were already thinking for a while to buy a specific product, they can do it this day and get a good discount on it.

And then there is a third type of customer this day. Probably the majority. Those who had no plan of buying anything but they get attracted by the discounts and the marketing campaigns.

At this point, you have probably received about 10 emails from the main companies where you buy just to be informed of the deals they will have. And of course, you have seen the word Black Friday around 50 times as minimum this week.

The American tradition has been growing a lot during the past years and both, products and services companies prepare this day carefully.

Black Friday deals in products.

This is probably the most common way to get attracted. During these days, product selling companies offer very attractive discounts in most of their items. Be realistic, and assume that we are very sensitive to all the information we receive. I would say that the only way to avoid the temptation would be by staying at home the whole day, but still, you would probably go and buy something online.

Instead of this, what you can do is being realistic. Before you go and buy something just stop, think twice, and ask yourself if you really need that right now.

Black Friday deals in services.

Not only companies selling products are offering their attractive deals on these days. If you look around, you will see how services companies got a bit jealous and they have decided to join in this tradition.  Restaurants, hotels, flight companies… they all are offering discounts or special offers for you.

Just be careful with this. Compared to the previous ones, these ones can be trickier.

Remember that if you buy a scarf and you regret afterward, you can always go with your ticket and get your money back. However, if you get tempted by a flight company and you buy impulsively a fly somewhere, you will normally don’t have the possibility of a refund.

Think about it carefully, and do not buy something emotionally!
