How to differentiate deals from duds on Black Friday
(NEW YORK) — Black Friday is the famous time of year for finding great bargains — but are some of those deals really just duds?
Gadget review site, TheWireCutter.com, says deals on quality products aren’t always as plentiful as you’d think.
“We found that somewhere under 1 percent of the deals are worthwhile,” Adam Burakowski, the website’s associate deals editor, told ABC News.
The staff at TheWireCutter.com point out that top-rated items aren’t as likely to be discounted, and that price inflation can take place around the holidays to make discounts look bigger.
For instance, the Black Friday price of one Dyson vacuum that ABC News found was $299, but the the same vacuum was $80 less in August.
Televisions are a different story, though.
