Best Deals of Black Friday – Cyber Monday 2015
Black Friday 2016 is rapidly approaching. Before all the leaked Black Friday ads hit, it is useful to look back at 2015 and see what was on sale.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is traditionally the biggest sales day of the year for retailers. Usually, stores are mobbed on Black Friday with shoppers battling over bargains. But this year, the stores hardly looked crowded at all. What happened?
Maybe some shoppers decided to stay home after reading online stories reporting that many Black Friday “sales” aren’t really bargains at all. While there’s some truth to this, there also were some genuinely great deals out there this past Black Friday...if you checked BuyVia first to find them.
