A consumer goods group watchdog shared statistics from 2016 that show 60% of ‘Black Friday’ deals are actually cheaper or the same price at different times through out the year.
Last year ‘Which?’ conducted research looking into the prices of 35 popular technology, home and personal care products stores.
The revealings showed Black Friday favourites to be of better value through out the year.
One of the worst deals discovered, was one by Currys/PC World, a British electrical retailer, situated in Mallard Road Retail Park, Bournemouth.
The group shared that Samsung’s 55-inch Smart 4K Ultra HD TV KU6670 was sold for £849 at Currys/PC World on Black Friday 2016, advertised as ‘Save £400, now £849’.
The tv was actually cheaper earlier in the year.
