What's the strategy to find the best Black Friday deals?
How do you score the best deals this Thanksgiving weekend in a sea of seemingly endless Black Friday sales? Kristen Gall, Retail and Shopping Expert for Rakuten, believes that retailers’ overstock categories will be the biggest predictor of Black Friday gold. That includes “home goods, gardening, and furniture that they may have not gotten rid of during Labor Day Weekend sales,” she says.
But she notes that Black Friday will also focus on “bigger-ticket items, such as technology products, including laptops, TVs and more.” Other shopping experts agree that personal-tech items will be the bread and butter of Black Friday 2022. Some of the favorites in this race are laptops, smartphones, TVs, Apple devices, cameras, toys and kitchen appliances.
Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?
Last year, consumers spent nearly $9 billion on Black Friday, just slightly less than the year prior — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their theories.
“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year,” confirms McGrath. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and are instead “beginning their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” adds Gall.
To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching big ‘pre-sale’ events leading up to Black Friday. “Spreading out their shopping will help to prevent [consumers’] budgets from taking a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. One possible caveat? “If starting prices are higher, then that means [potentially] higher deal prices when all is said and done.”
Are supply chain delays and excess inventory still a thing this year?
‘Any supply chain issues we're seeing this year aren't at the same level as those in 2021, but that doesn't mean they're totally gone,” says Ramhold of the pandemic-related shortages and delivery delays we experienced last year. So, barring any worst-case scenarios, we should be fine in that regard,
“Retailers have had a year to plan to avoid the massive delivery delays we saw last year, so shopping Black Friday should leave plenty of time for stuff to arrive before the holidays,” notes McGrath. “But that's assuming no big surprises or snags. Retailers are still overstocked with pandemic-popular items, like small home goods, countertop appliances and casual clothing. So expect good deals in those categories.”
