We are less than a month away from Fall and that means one thing for the retail industry: Black Friday 2019 is almost here. This used to mean long lines and running around between stores. Now you can find some of the most incredible deals right from the comfort of your own home. Well, if you plan ahead.
Black Friday 2018 highlights
2018 saw some record-breaking numbers for some stores. Amazon, for example, is one of the stores that offered a whole week of offers with its Seven Days of Black Friday Deals. When the actual Black Friday came around, Amazon’s Lightning Deals struck prices in all departments. The following Cyber Monday was the single biggest shopping day in the company’s history. Best-selling products included the latest Echo Dot model, AncestryDNA kits and noise cancelling headphones from Bose that sold out.
Target was another top-selling store last year. From November 1st to December 22nd, the company offered free shipping on all orders with no minimum purchase amount. The store made major money on sales of Apple iPads (32 GB space gray with wifi).
Macy’s was also a stop for Apple, taking $80 off Apple Watches, among other hugely discounted items. Some of their other deals included 60% off on protocol drones and designer coats and 950-thread-count sheet sets for $29.99.
According to CNBC, Black Friday pulled in around $6.2 billion in sales last year. It’s safe to say it was a pretty fantastic time for shoppers.
2019 Deals: What We Know So Far
This year, Thanksgiving day will be on November 28, which makes Black Friday fall on November 29 and Cyber Monday on December 2. Even though stores have still not released their offers for this year, there are quite a few things we can predict. You can expect some jaw-droppingly good deals from your favorite stores. We’re talking Amazon, Macy’s, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s and so on.
“Black Friday in July” set the bar pretty high last month. Amazon Prime Day gave the company its highest record-breaking sales day. It even surpassed last year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. The event prompted other major retailers to join in with great offers on several categories. Best selling offers included 80% off consumer electronics and appliances at eBay, $100 off Samsung Soundbar at Best Buy and an all-time low Echo Dot from $22 from Amazon.
For Black Friday 2019, we will most likely be week-long deals. In the past, Apple products have had insane price drops. As the company gets ready to launch their new items in September, it’s pretty safe to assume we will see some of them get their prices slashed. TVs and video game consoles will probably get deep discounts too.
