WalletHub.com Shares Valuable Insights on the BEST (and WORST) Deals for Black Friday– and MORE!

Thanks to WalletHub.com for providing this really great information that will help you better manage your spending and your time spent shopping for great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday!!

With 51 percent of American consumers saying that Black Friday no longer offers the best deals of the year, the personal-finance website, WalletHub took an in-depth look at 2018’s Best Things to Buy on Black Friday. WalletHub determined that 14 percent of items offer no savings compared with their pre-Black Friday prices.






To find out whether shoppers are really getting the best deals, WalletHub compared the “Pre-Black Friday Price” against the actual Black Friday price of a broad selection of items. In doing so, WalletHub identified the offers that are truly worth the hassle of partaking in the year’s biggest shopping craze.

In order to determine the best and worst items to buy on Black Friday, WalletHub first determined each item’s “Pre-Black Friday Price” by collecting its advertised price on Amazon.com between Oct. 19 and Nov. 15. For certain items, we collected two prices during that period and in such cases chose the lowest to represent the “Pre-Black Friday Price.”

We then collected the advertised price on 2018 Black Friday Ads for the same item on Black Friday in order to determine its “Black Friday Price.” Our sample excludes deals that did not have calculable percentage markdowns.

Finally, we ranked the items according to the overall difference in their prices between the two dates and determined which products would pay off the most for a shopper’s Black Friday hassle.

Sources: Data used to conduct this study were collected from BestBlackFriday.com and Amazon.com.
