What is Black Friday 2022?
Black Friday comes from the USA. The department stores traditionally clear their warehouses there on the weekend after Thanksgiving to make room for the Christmas business. In addition, huge discounts were granted in some cases. In recent years Black Friday became a gigantic shopping event, especially online, that also found its way to Germany. Black Friday is now well established for us too.
Which dealers take part in Black Friday?
Pretty much every online retailer and many brick and mortar stores too. The largest online retailers that have participated in recent years have included Amazon, Saturn, MediaMarkt, Otto and Ikea. We expect it won't be any different in 2022.
What Black Friday Bargains Can You Expect?
There will be great bargains almost everywhere. We expect huge discounts in the following areas, among others:
Mobile phones with and without a contract, accessories, laptops and tablets, household electronics such as vacuum cleaner robots, food processors and smart home products, entertainment electronics, i.e. game consoles, games, TV sets and projectors, headphones, speakers and sound bars, gaming accessories such as gaming chairs, monitors, mice and keyboards White goods such as washing machines, dishwashers Subscription services for audio books, music and video streaming and much more apps and software
How often is Black Friday?
Only once a year. Yes, really! And if you now think that that couldn't be because these shopping events are constantly being celebrated, you are at least not entirely wrong. Amazon Prime Day will take place in spring on November 11th. the Singles Day. Of course, various shops have more or less regular promotions – the VAT promotions or club offers at Saturn and MediaMarkt, for example, the Easter or September offers at Amazon and many more. This is normal and you can get good bargains there too. Nevertheless, Black Friday (and the associated Cyber Monday) “outshines” everything – no campaign is bigger or more important, and none of the online retailers generate as much sales.
One trap should not go unmentioned here: some shops and websites often call out false "Black Fridays", for example as "Summer Black Friday". This is nonsense, of course – the attempt is made to capitalize on a "stimulus" word here.
Should I wait for Black Friday to make purchases?
We cannot give a general answer to that. Although there are good to fantastic prices for products in almost every product group on Black Friday, there are bargains regardless of this at any time of the year. If you are looking for a specific product, you don't have to wait months. It makes sense to look at the price development and then strike when it is cheap – whether on Prime Day, Black Friday or at another date. On the other hand, we also advise against buying products at full price when Black Friday is just around the corner. With a little patience and a market overview, you can save a lot of money in the fall.
What should I watch out for on Black Friday?
The temptation is great to throw yourself into the bargain hustle and bustle and just go shopping. But the vernacular knows: you save the most on products that you don't even buy. For God's sake that shouldn't keep you from looking for bargains, but we still want to give you a few tips.
Think about what you need beforehand. Set a limit for impulse buying. Research the best prices and get an idea of the price development of your desired products. The pandemic is not over yet, better avoid the bargain hustle and bustle in full shops. It's more comfortable online and it's easier to compare prices. Go to GIGA.DE, we will list the best prices and the most recommended products for you.
The entire GIGA editorial team will plow the whole bargain fireworks on Black Friday and the “public holidays” around it and tell you what you can get where at the cheapest price. Bookmark this page and you won't miss any offers.
